An illustration of two mates caught on the wrong sides.

It was good fun fleshing out this piece, especially their expressions. :thumbsup:

The emotion conveyed in this is amazing. I can see their struggle and the emotional burdens that they're both carrying - and I can also see that they're relying on one another for support. Great piece!

This is so beautiful and passionate, and I feel like it's saying a sad moment will get better with that sunlight starting to peek through. I feel so much when I look at this.

At first this reminds me of two brothers. The oldest one casts his eyes down as if he knows they will both end up dying from the battle that ensues behind them but he will stay with the younger one and protect him for as long as he can. The younger one cries realizing the same thing and knowing what his brother intends to do to keep him alive for as long as possible. But then you notice the sword in the chest of the older one and you understand that the other cries knowing he will die and the second looks down excepting his fate and knowing he will be leaving him. Powerful stuff. I love it!

Sweet, you are truly an inspiration.
Which brushes would you recommend?
LAS-T's avatar
Thank you.
Umm...normal? I don't use special brushes, just the normal default hard round and the other stuff that comes automatically with PS program.
