This is a very original idea.Is the first time when i see someone using a clock in a theme like this.
The helll and the heaven are showed in their classic version.Hell is a dark place in fire full of monstruous creatures like the death which sits on the right side of the clock.The the apple and the angel from the left side of the image are symbolic for Heaven.
The clock shows that the lifetime period of the man from the middle of the picture is over.
Also the contrast between Hell and Heaven makes the piece more beatiful.
What do you think?

Upon first glance of this piece my mind automatically started working.

The juxtaposition of the concepts of Heaven and Hell are evident down to the smallest detail i.e. the sun and the moon Death and the angel, the crows vs the gulls.

Detail is very rich as well in the greenery around the clock and the ghouls floating in Hell.

As far as composition it is slightly asymmetrical but not distractingly so, I just love how clock is the center but the eye roams along a certain path from dark to light (or vice versa) but always coming back to the clock as if they are deliberating this man's fate.

All in I think this is a magnificent piece and I hope my critique will be well accepted :)

is if u tried to water down the meaning of Life into a picture and make it one Idea thats what this picture is... But the duality of this picture the Complex Simplicity is probably my favorite part imperfections if u can view things threw that filter cuz your view on life skewed then u really can create anything.... in ur head but u got it on paper Nj thought I think the is like one of my core fav on DA sounds  to much but its the darkness Level i like Transcendence or Enlightenment or a Trend Trendsettah is what i receive form this why all the worlds a stage whose char is that? to me he looks come Time Traveling DarkFiend walking away DEmon hahha fun to think its free laters
