Madness Ascent


Ascending from te depths of bloody inferno , they came to bring madness upon the world. Foes freeze in fear and deadeater rejoice.

Maybe Ill make a T-shirt from it.. Or a poster.

Oh wow this one was great and really intense with the kind of detail and action you want to see into madness. The background has this misty feeling to it almost like smoke and I enjoyed that very much for the change really love to see more blood tho. The birds and abstract background really works well together. The birds help you focus off from the complex background and back to the main madness images. Like I love the pencil like details and deep shading techniques you've used all over the piece in each aspect and each character down to the weapons and faces to the background. The theme here seems a bit biblical or something but not sure you intended to do that. It also reminds me of something John Woo would do in his action movies so it makes me wonder if you got inspired by him and his films tho the birds arent doves. The weapons and way each character holds them presenting themselves is great. You are good at displaying body language with action and violence. Good stuff and I would like to see more next time. I like the misty feeling it has still and I'm going to hope that next time Youll add that extra blood. Great job and keep it up with all this madness.
