Penitence by juliedillon Penitence by juliedillon
I've been working on this off and on for about a year, coming back to tweak it and render things every other month or so. I realized the other day that it was pretty darn close to being finished, so I went ahead and wrapped it up. :)

It's kind of a loose continuation of these two paintings: [link] and [link] Not a direct narrative, more just continuing the theme. :)

I like how you distorted the background with a fisheye lense look, the colors make it compelling and dark.

much of your art is like the wringing of hands. Tense, and self-comforting.

Very cool illustration, I really like the dark element you bring out in this piece by using the black and red colors. It really compliments the whole composition well.

A very powerful composition. I also like the reds you used for the sky, and the contrast created by that hole on his chest.

Thsi piece is so brilliant, so powerful and... strong. It's stunning.
I mean... the power you've caught in the winged man's pose, and that tiny bird over him, and the dark geround and the blood-red sky and the light in the horizon... Yes, it all really blows me away.
One of my absolute favourites from you. Great work!!!
