Call me by my astral name
Breeding fear through wordless tongue
Heavenly thirst - unspeakable pain
Emptied from all human motion
Confront the faceless wrath
- In Flames

Haha, not Pink Floyd this time!
A quick (40 minutes?) lazy speedpaint. Pose inspired by my wallpaper of doctor Zoidberg (you get a cookie if you guess which scene :D), texture by Sirius-sdz (I think so - 99% sure).

Lots of "cheating" here, heavy textures, fancy brushes, going with the flow, not worrying about anything.

AAAAAAAAAH! THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING THINGS I'VE SEEN. You really have potential, SERIOUSLY. I wish I could draw like you, hun. You have originality, and I can see that clearly in your artwork, you have a thriller/messed up vision, and I like that about you! Not many people have the imagination to create such art, and this is possibly one of the best things in the world. ( All I need to say, but it won't let me post yet... So, here is some randomness. ) Blah Bleh Blah Bleh Boo Beh Bah Bee Key Kah Mah Paa Daa

Once I saw this piece, I was taken back. My first thought was, technique. Such a unique technique, it took my breath away. The shading was beautiful, the details were gorgeous, but my favorite part had to be the texture. The background feels rough, like stone to me. Like a concrete wall behind this figure. That filled me with pleasure. Next was the hand. To me what looked like veins gave a great ambiance to this piece. It gave me feeling. I felt the skin, the veins, all of it. Finally the dress. Oh the dress, how I love you so, there was a silk texture to this dress, and yet I felt that it was tough, like their were some lose strings. I love that. Not the typical 'princess' dress made of pure silk. The lighter colors gave some life to the dress, as if it had magic, like there were veins in the dress filled with bright blood. I love it. This piece is gorgeous. I have no complaints.

Thank you! :)
The texture is awesome thanks to Sirius-sdz (check out all the textures, I love to use them!)
And I'm very happy you enjoyed looking at this artwork :hug:
Have a good day!

I wasn't going to do one of these until I read the other critique. For a 40 in speed paint this is fantastic. I can really tell you had something here that was really inspiring you.

Starting with the background I love the texture. (Even if you consider it cheating) I really love the glow of the (sun?)... I think it would have been even cooler to add a glow from the moon in a different color. But the red does provide a certain mood with this particular scene, so maybe a offset glow from the moon in a different color would have ruin the mood. I am not sure <3

Moving forwards... I love the idea of the hand head. It's funny you say you weren't listening to pink floyd because whenever I listen to him I get some "inspiration" as well and I could most certainly see this in one of his music videos <3

I like how you added the "deformity" on the hand itself. It blends well again with the mood of this particular scene. I would say they are a tad bright... almost glowing because everything is so dark. This sorta makes it awkward... but I love it just the same.

The reason I described the fave... "veins?" as glowy is because I would only expect the brightness to come from the wisps around the dress and the sun in the background.

But this page is really fantastic. I would say I've only seen anything like this in MAYBE Pan's Labyrinth. I really just love looking at everything going on in this. Very good work. <3

Thank you! :)
Haha, I tried to do another lightning from the "moon side", but I didn't like the effect (and it's really easy "cheat way" to try it - new layer, overlay, gradient fill... :D)
I've made so many pictures inspired by Pink Floyd :) It also fills me with creative vibes :)

You're welcome XD

Yeah I can imagine that. Pink Floyd was... mentally disturbed... the best inspiration always comes from someone like that.

Reading the poem along with looking at the picture, I can pin point visual readings as well. Meaning I can tell what the poem means and what it would look like. I like how you combined the poem and art all together, I really think it creates a deeper meaning than what most would think if they don't see it correctly. The hand as the head, but still holds the sun and moon, the 'wrath' being tongueless, I think ties in most of the mood. White is a good way to create that emphasis, since clearly it seems like it's what you would want people to see first. The only thing is the white lines, they're okay but maybe I'd do something more with it, maybe make them thinner? If you were going for a 'hair like' look to it but it's not actually hair.

This is really lovely. The colors really make the design pop, and I love how the background brings the foreground out. One of the things I disliked, for starters, was the design on the hand. I don't know if you were inspired by a picture or just chose to do this, but I didn't really like that. But other than that, the colors and lighting were beautiful and, for some reason, I loved the background. The colors that were slowly and very beautifully blending together on the humanoid figure and the background were amazing. I noticed that the background also had a sun and moon, and I'm guessing that the background colors are based on night and day. Great job!

Thank you! :)
The hand was based on my own hand - and then I added all the "veiny stuff" to make it look more... corrupt, diseased. I think I might get a bit inspired by David Lynch's "Eraserhead", where both the "demigod" and the "radiator girl" were having some kind of deformities (I recommend this movie, it's so weird it stays somewhere in your subconsciousness ;P).
And I added sun/moon symbols in the last moment, because I noticed it indeed looks like day/night and found it fitting.

Yeah, I really loved the sun and moon. And I'll be sure to check the movies out! :D (Big Grin) 

Your welcome, also! I am a dummy!
