This is an edit of this:… . There were a number of issues that had been bothering me since I finished it a few years ago but at the time I didn't know how to fix them.

Great lighting. Intriguing. Utterly captivating.

I know there was a picture after this one; one with the girl standing over another dead person; asking the black specter "What about this one?", but I for the life of me can not find it right now >:(

Ok, my brains just exploded, beautiful!

Your work is super creepy and awesome. I hope you don't mind that I linked to this image in my #wattpad SFF novel, for the header of Chapter 2.10, because it's fitting for this scene in the "Adulthood Exam" that the protagonist is undergoing.

I've always preferred exoskeleton-based electromechanical androids to machine phase matter post-singularity robots. The latter are fascinating but fees too alien to me, while old-school humanoid machines have individuality.

I really enjoy this illustration! It's so fresh and new, and speaks volumes to my own creative development.

Saw this on pinterest a while back. It's been one of my favorite inspirations ever since. I really enjoy it.

Any chance this version will be available as a canvas print?
TheMichaelMacRae Featured By Owner May 11, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
If you want though you can always just download the full size and take it to a print shop

It is now... I think?

This is great! i'm a lot worse than you are but i heard once that you should put some more saturation to your focal points to attract the eye more to them, maybe you could try it on day.

this is great in many ways

This is one of my favourite pieces of art.

There is something so tragically romantic about this piece... it takes my breath away. Beautiful work, sweetheart. :clap: :heart:

Just wanna let you know, this was posted to Reddit and made the front page. Keep up the good work!
nebastion Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Thats badass man, It jumped out at me and made me look at it for a prolonged period of time! Still haven’t had enough.
I can imagine it up on one of the many walls I live between.
PS as an edit, you nailed it! Its way more..... (whatever it is that makes it badass). Romantic? Sadistic? Curious? I dont know but I like it.

Great work!

One of the most powrful, creepy, brutal but yet delicate images i've ever seen in years.
ASeatedNight Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2015
I love this image though it ever so slightly triggers my Trypophobia...<---don't google that btw, not for the faint of heart!!
nebastion Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
You my friend just closed an old loop for me, never knew there was terminology for how things like that make me feel. (Not this picture(although i can see what you mean))
I don’t feel its a phobia for me, just a..: "Ewwwww... i wanna touch it, but, i'm nervous & I wanna squeeze it & ewwwww i cant stop looking at it!"
(Pretty sure that’s not a legit feeling but...)
I dunno it makes me want to.... Clean it, or just investigate. Maybe its the intricacy of such things?
Anyway thanks for posting it, years of confusion put into perspective.

Your new version tells a much more interesting story than the old. Amazing work. :heart:

This inky creature you've drawn is exactly like something I once saw in a dream. Ever since then it's been in my subconscious I guess because I dream about it all the time. It's name was Saath.

Your art is amazing. Not only is the technique itself superb, but the content that you so carefully choose has the ability to speak to people in so many different ways. There are so many different possibilities. It's just so beautiful. I could stare at this all day long 
Dhavita Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2015  Student
You are a master of narrative illustration. The mind naturally wanders, wondering what stories could have possibly lead up to this moment. It's amazing!

Looks very interresting!
raynetempura Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2014
This is really beautiful. I love the feeling between them. All of the details are amazing. Her hair looks so real. And her skin looks remarkably like fake skin that nearly looks real (I hope that made sense). Really well done. I'd started poking my nose in some of your other pieces and it seems like there's a story here.
raynetempura Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2014
Oh and I see you've posted it in the comments! Very interesting!
