Daily Deviation

Given 2010-08-23
Flooded subway - Murder by *etwoo ( Suggested by Scortis and Featured by PurpelBlur )
To start off, I first have to say that I do not claim to be an expert in digital art or even art in general, so everything I say will only be based on my personal opinion. =P

Firstly, I really love the way you captured the perfect atmosphere for this piece. It really gives you the sense of claustrophobia yet also the intense feeling of being so far away from any escape.
I've also never seen any piece like this before; the subject matter is so interesting because you get the feel of a horrific story that unfolded with just the tiny things like the caution tape and the blood on the door.
The technique in this piece is very well done as well. The reflections in the water, the tilted perspective, the submerged newspapers, cracks in the glass and even the graffiti on the wall is so neat and realistic looking. Though, I personally think that the broken glass on the door looks a little plasticky, but that might just be me. :D
You've expressed such a strong story with this piece and you've definitely made a huge impact on anyone who's laid eyes on it.

Congratulations on the very well deserved Daily Deviation and keep up the astounding work.

The Artist thought this was FAIR
39 out of 40 deviants thought this was fair.

One deterrent, the "HELP" is dead pun intended center, and it takes away from the rest of the piece by demanding my attention. If it weren't there, for example, my eye might drift along the reflection, then down the water, across the chain, led to the bullet hole etc. you get the point: I'd rather experience the whole picture than be distracted by small words. Everything contributes so well here that words like "HELP" actually subtract, which leads to the plus side:

Excelent creation of atmosphere though. I'd love to see what you could do with some cool factory pictures or old house shots.
The water is horribly murky and wonderful - one of those elusive elements that's key to the success of a picture like this.
The glare from the light is rather other-worldly, a bit overbearing but that's good too. Lets us know as the viewer that something is very wrong indeed.

This is really quite cool~
I like the "help" written in blood in the background. This picture kinda looks like the opening scene to a sci-fi thriller of some description.

This reminds me of Silent Hill 3.
The atmosphere is very disturbing, and terrifying. I can't help but feel sympathy for whoever was in that subway car. :(
Dyluthus Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2010
I'd certainly love to find out one day what happened to create this beautiful calamity. Excellent work!
scratchback Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2010  Professional Interface Designer
Gosh... how scary! I feel a little strange with how I think this is kind of cool. I guess it has a childlike perception, if that makes sense. It's particularly cool how the scene is lit by that single light...

reminds me of Silent Hill series... 8I

the detail keys are on the lighting, and the horror scene are on the blood trail, murky water, and broken window, you certainly did a very good job :)

Looks like a seen of the L4D-series. Nicely done. :D
AprilMcGuire Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2010   Digital Artist
very impressive! Lots of great elements in this, including the caution tape dipping into the water in the middle, and the cracked glass, and definitely has an eerie overcast to it :love:

Amazing work with the lighting. In awe of this piece
pingufugu Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2010
I agree with part of the critiques; the glass on the door looks a little fake compared to the rest of the picture (which could easily pass off as real), and I think that the lighting is a little overbearing. But other than that, this picture is flawless. And even with it's little dents in design, I still think it looks amazing (:
