Mr Snippy knows his place.

Been sitting on this for a while. Finally rediscovered it while sorting .psds and decided to add some touchups and put it up.
A fanart devoted to the greatest webcomic (and artbook series) I know of :)

This is an amazing piece! For starters, its based on Romantically Apocalyptic (which I haven't seen in such a long time) so immediately it got my attention there. Secondly, the vibrant oranges, yellows, and bits of red just "ooze out" (I felt this term to be appropriate) the feeling of a fiery Armageddon; these are followed by the barren blackness of the buildings, and the lively, watery-blue of Mr. Snippy's eyes. Thirdly, the textures for the different parts of the landscape seem about right, though I can see the hastiness in some of the strokes. However, given the frantic mood of an apocalypse, it matches pretty well. Once again, this is amazing!

Thanks a lot !

Holy shit. What a painting. I really love the color scheme here, the sunset makes for such an interesting piece. The landscape is absolutely breathtaking and it's really captivating seeing the two people in the boat. A few things look a little odd - a few brushstrokes that look hasty as well as the way the model on the right is holding the oar (?). Otherwise this is damn near perfect.

Thanks a lot :) REally appreaciate your feedback ! Indeed I tend to rush brushstrokes when I lose my patience, thats tricky to correct later as I usually work on few layers.
