Shadow People

Author Comments

I am a beginner and this is my first ever digital painting. Please let me know what you think of it , positive as well as negative (just don't be too rude please).

This is my rendition of a phenomenon usually encountered during sleep paralysis. The forest in the background visualizes the feeling of being lost and not knowing where to go.

Feel free to share and distribute this picture as long as you attribute to me.

While it does feel a little lacking, the murky and grim tone of the piece really does speak to me and the designs of the shadow people are actually pretty cool and well done. Keep up the good work and be sure to check out my art as well!

Thank you so much for your review and for the kind words, getting to know other opinions is extremely helpful, since I can't really tell about what is good and what not yet ;) At the moment I have some difficulties catching specific feelings as well as a clear motive in an image without having it too crowded or empty.
My imagination goes wild when thinking of things to draw but it mostly fails at breaking them down and getting them onto canvas :D
