i love the dual layering effect here, and also the muck dripping from the 'window'

Really awesome, but one thing that bugs me is how the demons are going to the left side of the picture, where the window is in the other picture, while the girl is looking into the window on the right side. Although I can understand how it would have been too difficult to change that.

Still, fucking badass.

well, this image is an unaltered scan, and it looks cool, cause it looks like the dead are grabbing her. the second image itself is a completely different perspective on the same scene. its 'wrong' but it works on some level. :) thanks man.

I really like the layering effect, it makes the creatures in the wall look much creepier. Really nice work.

i don't really like this as much as the other.

The overlapping looks... forced?
Reply
:iconnicktheartisticfreak:
nicktheartisticfreak Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
true, it was accidental how they lined up. and the girl alone was too boring. so i'd call this piece experimental. ;) thanks for your opinion man. i really appreciate it.

A curious layering effect, though I'm not so fond of how some of it overlaps with the girl. Unless that's only how it is appearing to me. Still, I wouldn't mind knowing how you pulled that one off, at first I thought it was a photoshop layering with reduced opacity. Now I'm not so sure.

Regardless, a stellar piece as usual.

actually, the pages are quite see-thru. even when scanning. all i did in photoshop was bring out the creatures' contrast. and that's why i didn't mess with the parts showing through the girl. i kept it all traditional. and it was unintentional to begin with.
the paper is "antique croquis" woven paper. interesting to work with. very delicate.
thanks again filth. :)

That's interesting. I'll have to go down to the art shop here and see if I can find some of that. Might as well try out some new stuff.

How much does it generally go for?

don't know... not too bad (i did buy it). it's not very good for wet media keep in mind.
Reply
:iconfilthhammer:
FilthHammer Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2008
Ah, that's fine. I generally use thicker papers, or canvas for any wet work. I'd probably use something like that for layering charcoal.

I'll have to keep an eye out for it.

It seemed to be at the time. Come my next payroll, I'll have to pick up some new supplies, and see what my sore hands can make.

Thanks for the inspiration.

Very nice ink work. What size liner are you using? Also, how did you achieve your background effect? Watercolours?

:iconnicktheartisticfreak:
nicktheartisticfreak Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
well, the pen claims to be a .4mm but it's actually around .2mm. it has a fully metal nib. the background is actually a drawing on the next page in my sketchbook. see through pages. thank you.
