another...Death...

[Oliver]

Hey ya'lls, here is another 'Death' piece that I just finished for fun. It's a little more traditional of an interpretation as compared to the last one that I did. I've been just working on the piece here and there for the last couple of months and just finished.

I decided not to render her flesh in grey tones as I usually do with the characters in my pieces because I really wanted her to 'pop' from the statue behind her, which I did in all 'hatching' to achieve the grey tones.

I've already got another 'Death' in the works and will post as soon as I'm done. Enjoy!

The title to this post scared me.

This image is absolutely beautiful - I tend to check out ya'll's blog everyday; but have never really been into posting comments. However, I had to break down that third wall this time around...

Oliver, I'll say one thing - you are always drawing; and I think this image shows real growth. As an artist myself, I think we both may suffer from the "kitchen sink" curse. In that, we often over work images, something I saw mentioned in your previous image of Nemesis. After a bit too much detail, things tend to blend and blur together -- but this time you got it...

Death is easily seen as the subject, with the statue having that soft grey from the cross-hatching, and that jet black of the backgraound...

Perfection!!!

Keep up the great work, I think this is the direction your work should continue down...

But that's coming from an "arm chair art critic," lol. So feel free to dismiss the comments as a whole or in part...

I'm new here... good ones! Really good textures on the background, a lot of work... i like the shapes and cross-hatching.

Thnx for taking the time for the nice words anonymous and Crokis! There r times that I do tend to go a lil overboard and one of the many, many things I've learned while at Wildstorm is to edit and let an image breath...

Excellent as always. And I like the Nemesis piece also despite the critique given. It always feels like I get more bang for my non-existent buck when I see a Nome commission. Details and inks are always on-point.

Peace.
