Rest in Peace or
Rest in Pain?


This is my part of the art trade with the extremely awesome :iconviccolatte: :la:

She wanted me to paint her charcter "Loh", who guards the spirits in graveyards to the spirit world. In this scene she is guarding a black soul, the soul of a sinner, to the underworld. That is why she looks so sad. The little flying lights are the souls she is guarding.
This was much fun to paint and I spendt at least 18 hours on it. I reaaallly hope you all and especially you, Vicco, like it! :heart:

Here is her version of Loh:

I quite like this piece of art.It has a nice macabre feel to it. loh has been detailed very well, her lips could have been slightly thinner but otherwise she is fine. The cross and the trees in the background have been done nicely too, but i wish there was a bat or more preferably a great owl perched on one of the dead trees , staring at the viewer, it would have added that little extra spooky effect.I also wish you had given the petals of the roses more detail, especially the one in her hair...
It is a nice picture otherwise..
Good job...

The Artist thought this was FAIR
9 out of 10 deviants thought this was fair.

I'll start by calling this really good, because it is. The blending and shadows are smooth, the character expresses the correct emotion for the atmosphere portrayed in this piece, and most of all, the colors used on this piece.
The only thing that I see slightly wrong with this is the light reflecting off of those creatures with wings. I would personally prefer that MORE light was coming off of them to enhance the dramatic display in this, because I THINK that I see what you are going for/achieved as for as emotion is concerned.

I could be completely wrong, and you could've not added light for a reason, but if this helps, no problem.
Love your art, and keep up the good work. I look forward to seeing more pieces of yours!
