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. [link]

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 ;)

What do you think?

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!

:+fav::clap:Ein herrlich magisches, traumhaftes(wortwörtlichst) Bild.:love:
Das mag jetzt von mir aus geschwollen klingen, aber dieses Bild schafft es Sehnsucht zu wecken, sie zu stillen und daher eben solche perfekt zu spiegeln/darzustellen.
Aber eine Kritik ist das Werk wirklich wert und daher soll dies als erster intuitiver Eindruck/Kommentar reichen.

Vielen Dank. ^^
Ich versuche immer wieder mal das Gefühl rüberzubringen, das ich habe, wenn ich Bücher von Kate Griffin lese. :D Schön zu hören, dass es klappt.

Are those watercolors? Either way; lovely<3 I love how the ghosts (?) are staring at the living "creature" in front of them.
