Battlefield by snow-chan Battlefield by snow-chan
This is life, this is war, this is the world, a battlefield. In this battlefield, there is no right or wrong. You do what you have to do to come out on top. That is the rule of this cruel merciless world.

I think this is the bloodiest thing I've ever drawn. I drew this when I was really angry so I guess it makes sense.

This is a character I made for the collab manga I'm working on with a friend. His name is Ian but we nicknamed him "emo boy" because of his fighting style and abilities.

I needed some practice on Painter so this was my practice picture. I CGed very messily so I'm not that proud of this piece although it came out exactly the way I wanted. I'm only proud of Ian in the middle..the rest is crap. Especially the random ugly blobs of corpses in the way way back...rofl...those don't even resemble corpses OwO.

First picture I've ever CGed without help of photoshop effects! XD Only the lineart was done on photoshop.

that's really awesome... sad and gory, but awesome because it conveys that feeling... and i liked that the corpses are just kind of blobs, on a battlefield you're to busy killing and surviving to see differences in all the bloody bodies. If that makes sense, hehe. Either way, amazing pic.

IT'S EMO BOY!!! Lollll you decided not to draw his abs. 8D jkjkjkjk Not bad on the fire. o_o The smoke could be a little darker and cover up more of the sky. I think the fire also needs to be a little more explosive-ish and brighterish and a bit more random to make it a little more real? But actually the whole picture is really nice. I like the composition and how the focus stays with emo boy even with those beautiful and pretty dead corpses lying beside him. XD

Is emo boy stepping on one of those cadavers?? o___o

Actually I didn't know how to draw abs ^^;. Abs are hard.....
I am planning to fix the smoke sometime when I feel like it (more like never hehe).

Yes, emo boy is stepping on someone's dehd body. Talk about respect for the dead.

I think you did a pretty good job already.

I liek the compositions, in that we can see the battlefield but the main focus is still on Ian. I also like how you did the fire- it's very smooth and lively. Also, the mix of purple and orange work great with the subject of the piece. His hair is lovely too and his eyes are striking.

However, I think the overall picture is way too light for a bloody battle scene. You did a very good job with the background and lighting up the boy's skin with the surrounding fire, but most of those effects are lost to the white sky. Even if the battle took palce in broad daylight, I think that fierce a fire combined with those type of combustibles (corpses, clothes, dust and such) would make very thick, dark smoke and obscure a good deal of the scene. That could be played to your advantage if you really don't like the piles of cadavers way back- you could camouflage them a bit with darker smoke.

I thinkthis drawing is very nice and was greatly done, but it lacks a lot of darkness for the theme involved and could be improved by adding contrasts. I don't believe you should delete it though, since it's obviously good work.
(I am sorry if this double-posts)

Wow thanks! ^^ It's nice to hear some nice critique once in awhile. Your comment is much appreciated.

I think you're very right about the background being too light and the smoke needing to be darker. I guess I didn't really take those into account while CGing ^^;. I was aiming for an after battle effect and heavenly feel so maybe those threw me off. I also didn't want to blur out too much of the picture while i was adding the dust and smoke because that would really take away from my efforts and the outlook of the piece.

Hm, this would be my personal answer to those problem, but maybe you could still add a dark sky but outline the character in a sort of glow. His skin tone and shade is light too, Ian would stand out from a darker background by himself.

If the sky is dark enough, you could even add stars or the like, and normally the fire drowning everything should keep the darkness away: you wouldn't have to obscure the great details and effects you had on the corpses. Also, there is a pretty large empty sky space, adding sparkles of lighter dust around the bottom of it with a brush should suffice to obtain the "rising dust" effect- without having anything go to waste. =)
