No context, I just wanted to doodle something red and blue and dramatic. And ribbons. Too much Machete lately. I ought to draw something else next.
The last time I looked at the clock it was 11 PM now it's half past two in the morning. This is unacceptable.

Staedtler pigment liner and Gimp.

Dies iræ, dies illa
Solvet sæclum in favilla,
Teste David cum Sibylla

Day of wrath, that day
shall heaven and earth in ashes lay,
as David and the Sybil say.

Day of wrath?  I like it. It's ambiguous in all the best ways.

The amount of motion is getting me! I love it when still images like these just feel like they move! I try to achieve that sometimes, but it never works as well as this! Besides, your pieces like these really communicate so much more than just movement. You know how they say that people imagine things that are undescribed when reading a book, well this is like a page of writing, but through line in colour, communicating the sounds, sensations, even the temperature. And I don't mean this for just this one piece. I mean it for just about any one of your pieces with this character + others. You style, as many say below (and soon above), is amazing, with minimalistic, yet appealing and complex in its ways. Keep up all your great work. I love it!

Pah. You can never have too much Machete! ...But do try to get some shut-eye, Ms. Albus. Tis good for your mind.

This is just lovely. Loving the ribbons! ;)
Somehow, I'm attracted to this image. :XD:
Ribbons really adds to the drawings and images. :)

Hmmm, intriguing. :) (Smile) 
This looks like a blending of the ancient Egypt and the feudal Japan to me, which is really cool. ;) (Wink)

Day Of Wrath
I thinkh I've heard of it once ~

Anyway, the pose is really showing the dramatic scene and the contrast between blue and red accentuates it <3

I also like the coldness in it, and his expression is really captivating, truly awesome
Overall, very simple with a good choice of textures.
