Halo of Twilight by treijim Halo of Twilight by treijim
"... and He of the earth opened a fissure within the abyss and a hand with a grip cold and strong as steel reached forth, and it grasped the arm of He and was pulled upward and outward, and atop a cloak bedaubed with shadow were two shimmering lights of bloodshot amethyst, crowned by a halo of twilight, and He named this being..."

Great use of light and shadow to bring about a mood. You can speculate about his origins even before you read any preamble.

I love the hand/arm though, not just the lighting on it. But the proportions and anatomy in general. It came out very well!

The hair and associated halo effect is pretty sweet, I like the finer detail in the darker areas of the hair closer to the front of his face. Again very well done.

Might have been interesting to have seen how this may have turned out with an equally mood-evoking background. Anyway, lovely piece really great work.

Well I wanted lots of focus on him, so the background had to be completely neglatory. Thanks though :D

That is someone I would not want to meet in a dark alley or on a bright sunny day. This is really amazing, his hand is great--I love the lighting of it. And his eyes almost look like he has two holes in his head D: And... noice cloak.

He does have two holes in his head. They're called eye sockets :B But I know what you mean, like the light behind him is shining through him :fear:

Intense. Was this inspired by anything in particular?

The rim of light is stunning; the way it fades off is splendid. Love the rendering of the arm and hand. I can't wait for him to make an appearance in the story.

As always, nice work. :D

Be warned, this comment is probably going to end up sounding mean, but thats just cos I'm stressed from exams, so :P

I like some of the effects you've used on this, especially the subtle shading on the clothes and arm which keep him dark but still give form, though I'm not sure about the light source on the wrist and hand...

Those two thingys on the left of his head seem out of place, I don't do much back lit stuff so it might be technically correct, but it just seems to stop the flow of the figure, but otherwise the lighting around the head and shoulders is very well done.

My only other thought is that maybe it could do with something to balance the arm, but thats probably just the Vis-Com area of my brain trying to be a showoff, so don't take to much notice :D.
