Very impressive picture here! The background is very elaborate and extremely well-done. I really love all of the elements (the words, the placement of the pictures, and especially the negative black space) you used to pull this picture together. This picture has very nice depth, as well as the random swirls of colors which I see as representing an endless void drawing in on the darkness and Shadow's feelings.
The words are a really nice touch, and truely enhances the meaning behind this picture. (I liked the song..^^)
Shadow's expression and stance are very dramatic, and the emotion of despair can clearly be seen across his face. His expression is so well-done, that I think I should go and hug him! ^^
This picture--overall--is an incredible piece of artwork, and is absolutely getting a ! Keep up the incredible artwork!! ^_^
Poor Shadow! It looks like he's undergoing some sort of metal torment. Excellent use of effects with pictures, words and color to create that background. I wonder what it is that he's thinking about..? Fantastic job!
What you mean you no like stump characters?! *ANGST*
Yes, it does make them look a tad less... kiddy. And I still like his face. As I said style varies anyway, and one draws how one will be happiest. It's spiffy regardless of that, unless, say, you made his legs into wheels. -That- would be dsiturbing...
