Featured deviation: "Nightbringer"

The first think that stands out to me are the so many eyes observing the one opposer to them. The reason I notice this at first is the contrast the eyes have with the all in all piece, it is amazing, and captivating all in one.

Another thing that seems important is the pendant on the gryph's neck, more because it stands out due to color contrast. I also think the snakes are evil and the bird is a defender, I believe this is important as it proves strenght, liability, maybe a hint of confidence? and defiance above all. The snakes come from the shadows, adding to the bad guy look they already had.

The contrasts between the snakes and the gryph are very well done, the snakes being darker involving them in the crimes of the shadows and the gryph being many lighter colors and good combinations of them make it seem aprochable and of good faith.

The snakes and the blues and reds lead me from place to place all over the image, cautivating as it is. The styles here combined are both amazing and intelligently mixed, it gives the vibes of reality and war between good and evil.

This is very encouraging to people, in a way to tell them to stand up to their fears, and not let them be beat down by them.

Okay, so this picture made me like those colors. The darkness looks so soothing, It's very dark but the lights are at their best place.
The colors here are really a excellent choice.
This looks very stunning and attracting...
I would, and have never expected anyone's deviations to look this way before!
It's unique !
I mean, the darkness aren't usually colored, but seriously..
I very don't care because it's beautiful!
This deviation doesn't need work.
The vision and technique is amazing. This deviation is super original.
I've never seen an image like it!
Don't worry your work is just perfect =)

Wow ... very nice light effects, and the colours are amazing. The painting looks really alive, especially the snakes with all those scales. The blue and red really catches my eyes. It really looks like you've put a lot of effort in this, with detailled shading everywhere. Poor, proud creature, I really hope it will survive!

Well it worked~ lol

last time I submitted something it was on Page 1 for a flash, then it got buried under borderline porn x_X. ( and yeah, I think it has to do with unknown categories, and then how many views it gets- not how many fav's ). I dunno, the front page is a mysterious tragedy to me these days

:faint: Omg your pieces are so beautiful! I don't recognize the creature facing down the snakes, is it a hippogryph? That doesn't really matter to me though, this is a wonderful piece.

Artisan Crafts / Needlework / Cross Stitch & Embroidery ...LOL I would usually get annoyed but with that horrific new unfair system I know its necessary since all the other categories are ignored.

This definitely deserves to be on the front page, it is a really stunning piece!

hahaha, you recognized it... I was in wallpaper category before, but a picture with 80 favs got on frontpage instead of me, so this is a hommage to the new (stupid and horrible) frontpage system... -.- I am thinking about starting some kind of strike, would you be in it and tell your watchers about it? I hate this new system, we need to do something! :(
But anyway, thank you very very much for your words! :heart:
