Out of this set, probably the lightning and ice ones strike me most.
Lovely shading as always, though I get most drawn by colour splashes that are offbeat and otherwise fun.

I know skulls are overdone and they're quite a common symbolism of death, piracy etc., but I'm not here to mention all this. I don't know how to put what I feel about this piece into words. To me, it isn't quite ominous. I find it very intriguing. It has so many splashes of colour that I really want to examine in great detail, like an archaeologist coming across some undiscovered bones. The parts that aren't splashed in purple and pink feel very... alien-y, if that's even a thing. Or maybe amphibian, I don't know. The ridges on the top make it feel like some sort of fish. It's like, an otherworldly green and grey that makes me want to hold it in my hand, wonder where it came from and perhaps examine it even further.

Not only do you show a great level of detail and anatomy, but you also communicate some things about this skull that only some of us would realise. For instance, its teeth. They're on the same level, in two perfectly straight rows, and there's no overbite. Could it have been the skull of someone who wrenched his food with his teeth, and used nothing but his bare hands? It gives me a sort of primal feel to it. This picture is simple, but makes me so intrigued.

Very well done.

I know it's a reskin of the Ice Golem, but there's something very.... uh... Marluxia-like about this enemy. It wasn't the case in the game, but I could just imagine rose petals and very graceful but deadly movements whenever I see this. There's also a bit of detail that I can see here, which I missed out when playing the game -- like the roots in its mouth.

Lovely drawing, as always.

Just want to say, that fire-breathing wolf looks amazing, the way you rendered it. To say nothing about the tense atmosphere, the red-hot stones or even the panicky look on Mega Man's face. Well done.

There's something very Jak & Daxter-ish about this piece. I really like that sort of feel, and it reminds me of the haunting story that the games have. Well done.

Kamikaye responds:

Thx :) I should look up those games, been hearing this couple of times now.

The first time I saw this, it made me think of Mulan (as Ping), with her green uniform, on horseback. Regardless of what exactly it is, the effect is the same -- it looks heroic, action-packed. Very well done.

ArtistGamerGal responds:

That is crazy- We actually referenced character sheets from Mulan for inspiration for this so it's crazy that you saw that influence! Thank you for the great feedback!!

Nice form -- I wonder if you could improve on the light and shadow a little, make it really eye-catching. On the blade, I'm not really sure which parts are darker and which parts are lighter (i.e., where the source of light really comes from). The handle doesn't help matters.

peach50 responds:

That's great thanks, I can work with that :)

You've most certainly put me in a bovine moooooooooooooooooooood.

That's dairy mooving!

This is inspiration for me to make a new song. I haven't played Airscape before, but this piece of artwork not only makes me want to do so. It also makes me want to feel like a child again, and for many good reasons.

Everything is whimsical, the background is so magical, and... that planet in the background has so much detail, and it kinda feels like something out of Super Mario Galaxy. Every child has a dream of space travel at some point, and I certainly did, and you made me revisit that childlike desire of mine.

ManuelTacoface responds:

It's really awesome to hear that I've inspired someone, seriously you don't know what that means to me, thank you so much. Message me when the song is released btw lol. Also, yeah I wasn't even thinking of Super Mario Galaxy, but now that I think about it, it's kind of like it right? I don't know, I was just aiming for a really cool yet child like piece and it appears that I've succeeded. Once again, thanks a lot dude!

The fear of death would be so well expressed not through images of murder, but also one's last agony, where it draws on and on and on (instead of being just a mere fleeting moment). The amount of iconography and religious imagery I have seen from medieval times onwards showing the last agony at death, and the emotions (anger, despair, yearning, difficulty to let go) that are so real that you don't want to succumb to them -- perhaps let us take inspiration from them for once? While we can't imagine what the fear is like....... well, until our own hour of death approaches, those icons were absolutely EFFECTIVE in showing just what the fear of death is like.

That being said, I applaud you for taking on the meaning behind this drawing. The fear of death is real, but not talked about often. The drawing itself is a bit sparse and could do with a lot more detail in the background to show just the many things that are going through the mind of the person soon to die.

Also, don't just cover beheading: cover hanging, impalement, crucifixion and all the other gruesome ways by which a person can die. Lynching and execution can be slow and painful, or quick and easy, but it doesn't matter: it ends up with the unnecessary loss of life. And I think it's about time someone brought a close to this government-sanctioned blood sacrifice.

What you did draw here, however, is quite good. The dilated pupils in that person's eyes, man.

cocolongo responds:

Thank you Troisnyx . it was a last minute choice..I did it yesterday in couple of hours or so, I agree the moments of agony ,perhaps is when you have accepted your death, right? in fact I feel is when you let go of everything,pain fades away as you die, but the instants before, when you feel the kitchen knife cutting your neck to the point of no return and you choke in your own blood and the eternal "seen your life in a flash " takes in, thinking this is it. I avoided the bloody part...( there are kids watching this) and a more gruesome depiction because it is so common in the world, call it war, envy,greed,or pure hate, that I may offend someone inadvertently. And the other deaths are not so common these days, I thought that nothing reduces someone to a complete humiliation as to deprive humanity from him, the body twitches for some minutes and the head is self aware as the blood is still in it ( a person may remain conscious for up to that period of time after decapitation ) The national laws of Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iran, and Qatar permit beheading, but in practice, Saudi Arabia is the only country that continues to behead its offenders regularly as a punishment for crime. in Mexico still happens due to cartel fights.. etc.. humans throughout history have done it. I thought about the thoughts of a person but it may be distracting , the focal point is the eyes,to invite the viewer to reflect ,( what would you think of?)..sort of thing.. cheers!
