Wow, this is great! You really captured a solemn, long-suffering emotion quite well in this. Love the detail and shading, you multi-talented person, you! ;D Gives off a great impression of texture that makes it seem almost 3-dimensional. This is inspiring work, LSD. ;D

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thanks you! But it's not like it's super great or impressive, as I mentioned in the description that I was trying to mimick this picture: http://goo.gl/LOlnb8

I figured that it's probably easier to learn by using references and such :p
The shading had a pretty interesting effect though! It's made to be computer animated, so it works in a pretty different way when actually drawn with a pencil XD

Neat! It does indeed look a bit cleaner than your old logo. I like the wavy, translucent textures in the background that look somewhat like some sort of body cells. The "s + d = G clef" idea was rather innovative as well. Cool stuff, LSD. ;D

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Why hello :p
Thanks for the art review :3

They do kinda look like cells actually!

There really is nothing that you can't do, is there, LSD? :D I love the concept and scenery design, as well as the shading on the mountains. The shape of the mountains is very interesting, and in a way surrealistic, and I like the texture created by the trees. It's a little simplistic and not as refined as it could've been, though. Some color might also make it more interesting, but in a way you also did a good job of capturing the simple, silent, and lifeless beauty of winter. Nice work! Overall, I'm very impressed, as this far exceeds my own visual artistic skills! XD

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Hahha, there are many things I can't do; I just tend not to reveal those, hehe :p

I personally like the concept too :) You know, I actually used different techniques to shade some of the mountains, than I did on others, mostly for practice XD And you're right in that the shapes of them are far from realistic :3

This artpiece should be more refined though, as you said. I didn't really have time to finish it completely, since the art class moved on to another project, and this was a difficult piece to refine anyway, at least for me! XD

I tend to be drawn to black and white every now and then, it seems! I'm happy that you overall liked the piece, and thanks for the ART review :'D

This is amazing! :D I love the intricacy of it, as well as the mood it conveys. It's interesting how the clearest and most detailed part of the image is his face. The use of color is interesting, as blue is in the center of the image, a color of relative calm. It looks so realistic, and does an amazing job of communicating the anger of the rebels to me, even if, to be honest, I don't know a lot about what's going on in Ukraine. Really solid work here, though. Also, I'm considering using this for RealFaction's A.I.M. Contest. Do I have your permission?

Thanks for an excellent review!
Go for it =]

Really interesting! I love the dark and apprehensive mood it conveys. The reflections on the water and the way the moon emphasizes the one illuminated tower are really spooky. I also thought the way you colored the water was really cool. Nice work! :D

Yes! :D It's so dark, and the distortedness of it really adds to that theme. I love what you did with the coloring, especially the red which makes the hooded figures really stand out. What can't you do, UlfusNG? :D

You do art, too? Wow! :D This is amazing! I love the mood it conveys, and it's so detailed and professional-looking. I love how some parts appear to be distorted as if by a toxic gas. How did you do that?! Simply fantastic work! Fav'd and scouted! ;D

ulfusNG responds:

I do art, music, writing, code, cooking, explosives you name it I've probably done it, living the Australian dream.
