THE BIRD IS GOING INTO THE AVATAR STATE.
EVERYONE GET OUT OF THE WAAAAAY!!!
In all seriousness, excellent use of lighting and perspective here.
Anyway, awesome picture.
Anyway, I just wanna say thank you, because this gave me inspiration for a writing I'm doing, so thanks.
I love this so much! You did an amazing job! ^^
This is phenomenal in so many ways. I love the extreme first-monster-shooter angle, but I'm afraid her attacker didn't know what it was in for until this very moment. Pearl's fierce expression and that powerful, commanding pose are almost enough to stop anything in its tracks. She exudes strength. Also the realism is fantastic, and you really nailed the anatomy perfectly – and even more so considering the amazing foreshortening at that angle. The motion blur on her ribbon and spear give the sense that she's just starting to respond to this jump attack, but her eyes pretty much say that she was ready for it. Motion blur of the ground and the pincers frame her wonderfully.
Or tltr: as Dylan Beekler would say, “Whoa, bad-ass…”
This is just great
