Amnesia, the dark descent. by flipation Amnesia, the dark descent. by flipation
I love this game. I bought the day before its release and played it to completion. It's a really scary game. I have not been so scared since playing Thief: The Dark Project.
This week I played the new Justine DLC and I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to resume an idea I had for an alternate cover.

I think, seeing other draws, we have all in mind how Daniel is without seeing him any time. He should look like Ben Barnes in Dorian Gray. I have this concept very clear.

Today I was very inspirated to search for references and compose a pose and background, so there is it.

I feel very successful and I'm very happy with the result. I will work in this illustration for the next weeks and make an illustration that honors this fantastic game.


Me encanta este juego. Lo compré el día antes de su lanzamiento y lo jugué hasta terminarlo. Realmente es un juego escalofriante. No he estado tan asustado desde que jugué a Thief: The dark project.

Esta semana he jugado el nuevo DLC de Justine y lo he disfrutado tanto que he retomado una idea de ilustración para portada que tenía pensada.

Viendo otros dibujos creo que todos tenemos en mente cómo es Daniel sin haberlo visto en ningún momento, para mi está claro que es Ben Barnes en el papel de Dorian Gray.

Hoy he estado muy inspirado buscando referencias para la pose y el fondo y creo que he acertado pues estoy muy contento con el resultado. Trabajaré en esta ilustración las próximas semanas para conseguir hacer una ilustración que honre a este fantastico juego.

Amnesia, the dark descent is a Frictional game. [link]

I saw a lot of art with Daniel, but your's variant is the best. It's my IHMO, of course)))

Still, Clothes, face, hairstyle is correct for that period. Also, dark atmosphere and Bro (PewDiePie's name for grunt) on background.

What about emotions: there are a few people, who can draw fear and deduction together. Daniel on your work is scared, still, he is going to find Alexander. Not so many, who gives attention to eyes and face, especially to micro emotions.

But, I like the most is the correct emotion. Not female histerical fear, but a man fear, when he goes over himself and go further to dark.
What do you think?

Dios..Es que...No hay palabras, es impresionante, es como si hubieras captado a la perfeccion la idea que todo el mundo tiene de Daniel... Es exactamente como dices: "es Ben Barnes en el papel de Dorian Gray."
flipation Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Gracias, es cierto que salvo la imagen de Daniel que existe en el artwork oficial de Frictional el resto son dibujos y memes con una idea muy establecida. Imagino que es la idea que tenemos de personaje victoriano y la verdad es que el papel de Barnes en Dorian Gray evoca mucho la personalidad perturbada de Daniel, lo cual hace que casen perfectamente.

Si, y gracias a tu magnifica OBRA de arte, tenemos una mejor idea de como es el personaje. ¡Parece la caratula de un libro! Y pues...Ese "artwork" de Daniel jamas me ha convencido mucho, pero tu trabajo es magnifico, espero que, con el tiempo aprenda de artistas como tu y pueda pulir mi talento. ¡Oye, gracias por responder! :iconhappycuteplz:

Gracias, tanto esta como la de Penumbra están pensadas para ser portadas. Siempre me ha gustado las ilustraciones para las cubiertas de los juegos de ordenador como se hacían en los 80 y principios de los 90. Artistas como Luir Royo, Azpiri o Bob Wakelin han hecho grandes ilustraciones que han sido siempre mi fuente de inspiración.

I wonder why daniel looks almost the same in every picture I encounter, while there is only one official picture available (an alternate cover art from when the game first appeared in stores) in which he looks completely different, short blond hair, small eyes, jawline a bit more masculine etc :P
like the picture though!

You did such an awesome job with this, it's very dramatic! i especially love mr. face creeping in the background. Although, I must say Dorian Gray was one of the worst movies I've seen.

Muy buena la elección, debo admitir. Ahora me pregunto: ¿Quién sería tú elección para interpretar a Alexander? Sólo curiosidad. ;D
flipation Featured By Owner May 14, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Uno de mis actores favoritos en interpretar papeles de malo es Donald Shuterland, por la cara alargada y el pelo blanco queda muy bien en el papel. He encontrado una foto que lo ejemplifica muy bien. [link]

Sin embargo le falta el toque depravado que debería inspirar el personaje, algo que sin duda le sale muy bien a Malcolm McDowell (La naranja mecánica, Calígula) aunque de mayor la cara del actor no me cuadra tanto.

Gracias, espero darle la ambientación suficiente para que transmita toda la atmósfera del juego.

If for any reason there was ever an Amnesia movie, Ben Barnes needs to be Daniel.

great depiction of Daniel, and I like the composition of the picture! I want a lantern like that... You have seen the official concept art of Daniel, right? [link] He does look like Ben Barnes!
flipation Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
I saw it here in deviantArt after having seen the many fan works done. But I have my idea of Daniel while I was playing the game.
