Wow, this is awesome (and creepy :D). It reminds me of a dream I had a few years ago. I like how you used the texture of the wood to create sort of a rough surface, if that makes any sense. :3

Hehe. :D It was a pretty cool dream--scary at the time, but in retrospect kind of awesome. (The angel in the dream looked almost exactly like that.) And wow, it's amazing that you created that texture with paint!

thick acrylic paint and really stiff brushes are a great combo. it's kinda freaky that i illustrated one of your dreams. maybe it's that collective unconsciousness thing...

I love this wood style. Adds a nice texture to the piece.

You have a great composition going on here that really highlights the heavy contrasts with the characters.

ps. I love all the little razor teeth everywhere.

Cheers

Love the use of black on yellow and the way the grain of the wood comes out to create a very nice texture... Makes me want to go get a board and paint on it! ;-)

As usual, your design sense is impeccable. The composition is very impressive too: each of these forgotten spirits seems to have a unique personality. They make me think of Sam Kieth's "Isz" creatures. [link]

someone else pointed that out too. i was likely influenced by sam keith's work without being aware. i always did like his work. thanks! :]

fucking awesome! how did you like working on wood for this? also the little guys around the feet of the angel remind me of The Maxx. good work!

the wood is alright. i really like the texture, and with wet media you can get some really cool effects. but on this one i covered up the wood texture with multiple background layers that didn't work out. (the texture you see is actually vertical brush strokes) i do not like the texture of canvass at all, so wood is a great alternative.
i love the maxx! i have only seen the cartoon, i really should read the comic! thank you!
