Of Gods and Slaves by ChrisCold Of Gods and Slaves by ChrisCold
Yay, i'm not dead

Anyway, started this one a long time ago but finished only yesterday.

An assassin is sent to investigate a cult and kill the demon who's pretending to be god. An old story, happens to everyone at least once in a lifetime... oh well.

I kinda rushed because i had no time - (i think) looks a bit like it's underwater because of the colors and the light, but it's supposed to be inside a huge ruined temple somewhere near the swamp, in case you care about it :P

PS some wallpapers added too

First off sick piece, loving what you did with the vertical elements, and that rock on the right for some reason stands out as too epic. haha.

So, the main issues i notice going on is primarily with the Center God i assume, While it appears as there is a nice gradual change in regards to placement in fore - mid -background images. He does not feel like he is in front of the figures in the background because of his tail. What is going on near his rear is fairly unclear and choosing not to show the tail continuing past the foreground figure on his left side showing that it is in fact the same tail would help remedy this.

Thanks a ton for sharing! I hope this helps a bit.
What do you think?

Maybe you should've made it even darker, or more dark shadows? Cause it looks like it's in some kind of swamp but not like it's inside a temple? c:
But anyways, I'm just a rookie so don't mind me. Nice work btw :D
I like the way you work with dark and light and planets and such c:

well yeah it's not that dark because it's inside a destroyed ruined temple, it doesn't have a complete roof anymore, walls are partially destroyed. I guess i shouldn't have said "inside", it's more like the place where a temple were but now there are only its remnants.

I find it interesting that you chose a owl form as a demon. Have you watched any videos on the illuminati? There are many on youtube.

:iconchriscold:
ChrisCold Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2011
Hmmm, no i haven't. Honestly, i wasn't really thinking about owls when painting the helm, but i do see the resemblance.
Oh but also, what about the illuminati? i had no interest in them until now and there are indeed quite a lot of videos out there, i didn't really want to watch them all but you're welcome to suggest some, please

Candeez Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2011
Well Illuminati is a fairly general term. I was speaking more specifically of the Bohemian Grove Club and how it is rumoured to be one giant cult consisting of the some of the worlds most influential people. It is also rumoured that they worship and perform rituals infront of a statue of a 40 foot owl.

If you are interested the videos are worth your time. Alex Jones puts together some interesting videos on different things. Conspiracy theories I guess you could call them. However they are backed up with many facts.

I think you did really well in terms on location, i didn't think it was underwater when i first looked at it. I did get a feeling of a cave tho. So, i think thats a good thing =P xD
i like it -favs-
