This is really neat! I love the de-centered composition and all the crazy contrasting colors on the screens; it's all very striking, particularly with the dramatic lighting on the figure in front. He looks positively dangerous! I don't know the story here, but the mood is conveyed very well. (The bloody handprint's a nice touch, too!)

Hee, I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I browsed through your site and fell a bit in love with YOUR art, so I was a little intimidated by the assignment. XD; But it was a pleasure. Stay awesome. ♥

Ironically enough, I went through your Tegaki and stuff, and I was honored to have such a talented artist draw for my yuletart, haha! Thank you again!

Wow, that's really atmospheric. Don't know the series, but I like this.

The composition in this really makes this great--not to mention the static textures and spooky neo-neon colors!

I love the colors, the darker side of the characters (IDK the fandom, but it seems pretty noir?). the little bits of blood. the composition is off center, which I think works to make the world seem slightly askew. love it.

This looks awesome, wow. I love the sort of surreal coloring and the smoothness of the standing character (sorry, not in the fandom) compared to the graininess of the TV screens. His eye is awesome, too. Wonderful work!

Persona 4 art, featuring Dojima and a sinister-looking Adachi to boot? Awesome! I really love that you built upon the TV theme of the game with the way the static and the test screens look. And how the screen showing Dojima is slightly shaky and out of focus just serves to accentuate the creepy and unsettling mood that this piece has (as does the composition-- who is off-screen, will everything be alright and all that, ahh :D). The coloring on Adachi's face is also wonderful, those cool blues/greens and the yellow of his (shadow self?) eyes ♥

(lol oh how I don't have appropriate P4 icons, but just imagine Souji being all stunned by the pic instead or something XDD)

Digging the color scheme and the CRAZY-UP-TO-NO-GOOD expressions.

The composition of this makes it look like the cover DVD art for a really incredible movie; I know zilch about the fandom, but the tiny streaks and splats of blood all over are super-intriguing and your clean, crisp art style is just fantastic. I love it!

What beautiful colors! The skintone of the guy on the left, reflecting the TVs, is gorgeous! The empty space with the blood handprint really pops out and makes it that much more apparent something is missing. Great piece!

This is really cool, I love the lighting and all the little details of texture and shadow. Nice work!

Wow, this is awesome and so creepy. I love the handprint so much, and his yellow eyes, and the teeny splotches of blood.

this is a beautiful piece - I have no frame of reference for it outside of its image, but it is disturbing and quite gorgeous.

The coloring on this is phenomenal. Just phenomenal. So is the texture, especially the static. Wow. And the whole style. I love it.

Oh man, oh man, oh man. I'm seriously stunned. This looks better than some of the concept art for the game. I love how Adachi's his true self in this picture, looking creepy as hell. I also love how Dojima's on the other side, most likely considering the investigation, or Adachi considering what to do about Dojima...or all of the above!

This plays wonderfully on the darker themes of the game, bringing them into such sharp focus. Love, love, love.

There is such a compelling story here that leaves so much I want answered, because of the TVs and the way the two characters are back-to-back in a way and that little splotch of blood on that once screen to trace back to the blood on his shirt and the gun he's holding homggggg *flails* Love how you used bright colours to create such a macabre tableau, that's so very cool!

This is wonderful! Your creep factor is subtle and twisted and the blood hiding around the piece is so intriguing. Add in the unsettling colors, and the great lighting, and wow, fantastic piece. :D
