Very well then
First off, i'd like to tell you that I love the movement of the brush strokes you use. Things like the hair/fur of the beast, to the floating platforms in the backdrop, down to the pure "essence" of the image really seem to be brought out in this particular work. It's not just how the lines and strokes flow, it's the use of colors that tie into a serious dramatic set work that forms from the lines themselves, and this is why you're one of my favorite artists by far.
Second is something i've got problems with; the size perspective. I can never really think of a way to show size, at least on this kind of scale. From the concept of the spirit (life spirit?) that seems as if she has created that beast of hers as a pet out of her own powers of life, and how the creature seems sort of unaware in it's stare, this just gives off a really cool vibe, especially with the little warrior that seems like he's about to challenge this thing, and it's just waiting for the command to life even a small amount of energy to crush the little dude...lol. It also leaves me wondering what else that spirit could conjure up.
I enjoy the simplicity of the background. I like that it's sort of a nether realm type feel, complete with oddly placed floating platforms with creatures that seem to be standing guard over their little domain in this world. I like that you have so much detail in the background, and again; you've got a knack for setting a mood in your works...only question i've got is how the hell did that little warrior manage to get on the platform that's in focus??
Also, you rock at fading in your colors, especially where the cloak is sort of fading out off that life spirit.
Yet another amazing piece from you! I just love all the detail that you put in these, and there's such a sense of movement in your work. Wonderful! I hope you win the contest. I will be cheering you on. --Anna
