Started out as me painting a concept for a soldier in the universe I have on the backburner.. Really really liked how atmospheric I managed to make it look, then decided to fill up the empty space with speech bubbles....because laziness. So yeah.

I'd love to do a comic in this style. >_> Just gotta get faster at doing this sort of stuff.


A nice piece. I like the painted style, the blood on the wall and the view through the doorway are done particularly well with a good use and understanding of light.

Having said this I'm not too sure about the speech bubbles. In themselves the idea is okay but I noted that there is a slight transparency to them, I don't think that was the best way to reduce the sharp white of a standard speech bubble that would over power an image like this. I would have suggested using a light pastel grey background for the bubbles instead of a fade, this wouldn't be as garish as pure white but better then how it is.

I agree that the font used was a good choice, an obvious lend to the theme. I fear though that it is jumping out of the bubbles, the "MY" at the top for example is too close to the edge of the bubble and the "FUDGEPOPS." should be reduced in size also for this reason. I would also change the full stop for an exclamation mark. The middle bubble is typographically perfect though.

The final thing that I would point out is that the left boot (viewers left) looks a little off. The laces seem like they should be slightly more to the left as they go up the boot. It's just something that jumped out at me on an otherwise good figurative painting.

To summarise, it's a nice work but it's let down by little things that stand out. Mostly the speech bubbles. Well deserving of three stars though.

Aw man, thank you so much for the lengthy and constructive review, I'll definitely keep that in mind for the next one I do (if I do). I guess that's what I get for trying to wrap it up so late, haha.

Thanks again though, I appreciate it!

The shades and colors are well done in his picture and the feelings of the soldier being in a mission without knowing what would happen next, awesome.

Rhunyc responds:

Thanks dude, I appreciate that!

I imagine buddy conveniently saying this loud enough for just about anything in the entire building could here him.

Great work!
