. . . so I clicked the tag and jumped about a foot. Whoa, hello there.

This is gorgeous (if terrifying) work! The cropped, up-close composition makes it that much more intense, and I mean . . . you've really brought across the character. Vividly. (He just has so much . . . presence. I think some of the wrong-hotness in the film comes from Tim Curry's voice/carriage, but there's a little something here still.) Marvelous job on his features, and the shading of his red skin! The color is generally complex and beautiful (so detailed - omg his teeth). I love the shine on his throat, and the misty swirl through his claws. Wow.

Thank you so much for the lovely comments! :} I was (mostly) immune to his more disturbing qualities by the time I finished, so I loved hearing about your initial reaction too. ;D

This is nightmare-inducing. And I mean that in the most complimentary way.

Hee, compliment accepted and hugely appreciated, thank you. *G*

Thank you! I love working with red and oranges, and the blues and purples just popped so nicely against them. :D

I wanted to start a comment, "Let me be the first to say that you have made something really fucking scary, congratulations!" but I spent too many minutes staring enraptured at that little piece of visible gum, and was beaten to the punch.

Let me (hopefully) be the third to say you have made something really fucking scary. Congratulations! Way to reclaim sparkles for the realm darkness.

Seriously, I am all about those gums.

LOL. Sparkles are so darkside! Reading that made me grin hugely. ;D And thank you--I admit, I was rather pleased with how his gums and teeth came out, so it pleases me even more that they grabbed you too. :D

very well done

Heeeee--your icon/comment combination is too perfect for words. Thank you for the comments and the giggle. ;D
Dec. 16th, 2009 08:23 pm (UTC)
ok wow that is ... striking. XD amazing work. the detail and the colors are fantastic... just look at that shiny reflection on his skin....
*runs away*
Jan. 5th, 2010 05:21 am (UTC)
Thank you! :D He was a really rewarding model to play with. *g* (And he's at least a little less unsettling to look at when you've stared at him from beginning to end. XD)
Dec. 16th, 2009 08:24 pm (UTC)
This is awesome! I love the detail on his horns and claws!

My reaction can be summed up as:

Dec. 17th, 2009 12:16 am (UTC)
Yeah, I keep coming back to this. Three times today. AWESOME. Intense, vivid, and soul-wrenching.

Hee, thank you! For the lovely detailed comment and for being a little freaked out by him, lol. XD I did my best to make his stare direct, so this made me all kinds of happy to read. *g*
Dec. 16th, 2009 08:29 pm (UTC)
I am so completely in love with the texture and colour work in this. It's basically one colour, but there's so much variation and ... guh.
Jan. 5th, 2010 05:26 am (UTC)
Thank you! He could probably have even more variation and then feel even more real, but I'll just pretend I didn't want to freak people out *that* much. ;D

That is fucking astonishing! I didn't expect anything in particular, so the up-close intensity and absolutely goddamn PERFECT recreation of this character caught me off-guard. I can't even think of what to say to you about this piece, but it made my heart pound faster and I keep scrolling up to take in the burning-hot stare and the contemptuous lip-curl and then scrolling down to recover. Even though I didn't find the dude hot in Legend (I think I was pretty young when I watched it, so I mostly registered TERROR) the dirty-bad-wrong sensuality totally comes through in this picture. I am seriously amazed.

Excellent, startling work!

When I drew him, I never even thought about how people would be clicking on the cut with no idea of what was really on the other side. XD

And your comment is just so wonderful--thank you so much for sharing it and saying such lovely things. I'm pretty sure when I first saw him back as a kid I just thought he was cool and evil. The wrongness was just something that hit me rather hard when rewatching it in prep for painting him. *g*
Dec. 16th, 2009 08:49 pm (UTC)
Yikes! I don't know the fandom but this monster looks scary. The close-up is very intense, he seems to look right at you.
Jan. 5th, 2010 05:31 am (UTC)
Aww, thank you! His gaze was something I really wanted to get right, so your made me very happy. :D
Dec. 16th, 2009 09:21 pm (UTC)
Ooooh, spooky! Well done!
Jan. 5th, 2010 05:31 am (UTC)
Thank you very much! :D
Dec. 16th, 2009 10:09 pm (UTC)
*click cut* EEK!

....dude AWesome. *.*

That's great.
Jan. 5th, 2010 05:31 am (UTC)
Heee, thank *you* for the lovely comment. ;D

Thank you! I'm thrilled to hear you think so. :D
Dec. 16th, 2009 10:45 pm (UTC)
HOLY CRAPOLA. I don't know the movie at all, so I had no idea what was waiting behind the cut and uh... I sure as hell didn't expect this! But oh man, this is simply awesomely scary and creepy-- I keep having to scroll up for short bursts before having to scroll down again, but this is intensely well done, wow *_*
Jan. 5th, 2010 06:08 am (UTC)
Your reaction is making me grin so much! Thank you for being creeped out by him, hee! XD
