Facing Death by sanguisGelidus Facing Death by sanguisGelidus

I am currently selling a Fantasy Art Calendar for 2013 here on dA! :D If you want have a look here: [link]

It is said that in the last second of life,
with the last glimpse when facing death,
you can see the dark taking over,
swallowing the bright colors of life.


Another traditional painting, this time a darker theme.. I liked the idea of conveying dark emotions with bright, kinda psychedelic colors. It has much symbolism, but I dont want to reveal too much, I think its always good, if the viewer can imagine an own story! :)

Hope you like it! :heart:

Thank you soo much for your support, I am so overwhelmed with all the love I receive from you! Thank you! :heart:

-- Favs and comments are hiighly appreciated!! ^^ :la: --

Painted with watercolors, markers and white gel-pencil! :)

Other traditional paintings by me:

Like the other one, this is AMAZING! If I had to criticise something, the bottom eyelashes look a bit wilted, but it really is amazing! Also, I like the contrast of how it suddenly turns black at the centre. Hope this helps! Favorited.

Hmm, it's too short apparently... unfortunately, I'm no good at this... So, um...

Have some smileys!

First of all , hello there ! :iconexcitedhiplz:
Every single work in your hole gallery amazes me so , I thought that you deserve a critique ! ;) And I choose this traditional Masterpiece ! :iconepicclapplz:
It's always hard to choose the right colors for your upcoming imagination ... You think , what color , what effects , what I must use to post my mind on the paper ( or canvas , or anything you use ! ) ... For me , this is one of the best color mixes I had seen ... Especially for a eye ! :love:
This is very interesting piece , you did a beautiful job in the <> with the <> , they are two very opposite things and you just do them one ! In the depth the darkness and all around , the beauty of the life ... Wonderful , I can't really make this on paper , it's to realistic and to difficult to make with traditional tools ...
I love that you choose to draw a eye , because you can leave all your emotions or to see all the feelings in it ! Genius work...Really ...
I had only seen your magilac digital works so , it's the first time I see something traditional from you !
Again bravo , it's a incredible piece of art and I can't wait for your coming works !
See you ! :D

Maybe who ever it is is seeing one last bit of beauty before dying.

I love this eye! It was one of the first pictures on DA I've seen and I loved the idea. You were my inspiration to a lot of eyes. I love the combination of the colours and the gloss. There is just one thing I don't like that much. I think the eyelashes aren't as good as the other parts of this picture :)
