The old Busstop by drachenmagier The old Busstop by drachenmagier
Just because one does not notice something or someone, does not mean it's not there. :)




Finally started to work with acrylics for real instead of just using it for white effects. I can only say: Fun to work with! 8D While coloring I was mostly listening to the OST of Infinite Undiscovery. www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8Co13…

Acrylics and Markers on A3-Mixed Media Paper.


and one day I will get the hang of viewpoints and correct that shield. d:

I just have to write a Critique O___O
This picture caught me !
I thought its Digital at first, but then read that its Traditional, amazing !!

5 Stars for Vision: The Atmosphere is pretty damn amazing, it kinda dark and creppy on the one hand and extremly full of lights on the other hand :)

5 Stars for Originality : Do I really need to explain why ?
Ok, ill do it anyway ;D
The Idea is amazing,and I love how it turned out. These creatures are amazing...just breathtaking...

5 Stars for Technique: Like I said before, this looks Digital work to me, thats why it is just more amazing that its Traditional in real xd
The Details( Feathers,cobbles,Lights...) are just amazingly worked out, I love how the lights and Shadows are set.Perfect use of Markers and Acrylic !

5 Stars for Impact: The Impact is just breathtaking, it really would be scary to have such creatures around you while your waiting^^
But Iam still amazed from the Idea and its great to see it the other way around, to see the creatures instead of the humans :D

A Masterpiece, I cant stop looking at it !

Great work, keep it up ;)

This piece immediately caught my eye while I was browsing. It is an interesting blend of light and dark, and I am intrigued by the choice of having the creatures in full form, while the humans around them are merely a ghost-like impression of a proper form.
I also like the buildings in the background: using more castle-like shapes instead of more modern architecture adds to the fantasy feel of the piece.

I only gave three and a half stars for originality because I have seen some images and films with this same idea, but you still managed to pull it off in a new way.

I do have to wonder what these creatures are looking at over to the right. Possibly the bus? Well, either way, it is a beautifully done piece, especially considering it was done in a medium you are unaccustomed to. Congratulations!

A dark place you imagine... but I do like your style, and your creative ideas. Not the same old boring ideas being seen from the view points of the humans.  Keep going!

This looks awesome, especially the design of the owl-like creatures (which remind me a bit of the owl in the library in The Last Airbender) !

One thing that confuses me though, is the fact that the front "owl", which has the street lamp in its back is fully lit on the front, and the rear one is in the shadows though having the lamp on its front-right.
It seems to me that the front one should be shadowy, and the rear one lit. But there are giant owls taking the bus, so fuck logic I guess ^^

Anyway, amazing work man/woman !!!

Yes, today I would shade it differently, but then again... I think the somewhat ilogical shading is a part of the attraction here. :D

Thank you! :D In a way it is a tad surprising how popular it is. ^^ On the first day it scared me with 15 000 messages in my previously empty inbox. XD

ryokenohkie Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh wow, that would be surprising!

Still, it has this duality to it, as though the dragons are the secret, but also the dragons seem nervous, as though maybe they're scared of the people that may be around them

That plus the setting, which is so ambiguous, and the bugs/fairies on the lamp... there's so much, and it's rendered so well

Also I suppose you have that cute owl face thing going on the dragons too :D

Interesting how you interpret them as nervous. ^^ Gotta love the different interpretations of that drawing~

Haha... like one of the hands is up so I kinda thought they were in that delicate nervousness mode, but it's probably a bit to do with the faces too. Owl faces always look a little unnerved, ahaha

Very nice - I received my print today - but I'm disappointed the print does not have a signature. I can see by the example above that it doesn't either. Oh well - one reason I buy art vs posters (if you know what I mean, is I love to have the artist's signature at the bottom or on the back. (maybe you could send a signed postcard?)

Sadly, I have no way to let the prints first come here for signatures or such. :) It would easily triple the costs because of the insanely expensive shipping from Switzerland. So, the prints all go over printshops that ship directly to the customer. :) And same, I love a small and handwritten signature on works, but sadly, this is often not possible.

Though I do hope you will like the print non the less. ^^

Nah, I don't think it's a sign for anything bad. :D A bit like there are some fish that only live in very clean water? Or some insects that are only in your house when it's clean. ^^ I would say they are a good sign. ^^
