I've been wanting to revisit my original Darksiders character for awhile now, this contest gave me a good excuse.

Scrios the Archangel of destruction returns! This time he brought some friends to help him destroy the wicked and demons left on the earth.

oh yeh and I consider this a personal breakthrough so let me know what you think.

I think you managed to bring both might and presence to the main angels. They really have that spark of personality to pose as main chars. The blood-moon and the flying angels on the background have also added enormous depth and atmosphere to the whole. The things I dislike are the ?zombies? on the first plan. They are too exposed by light to be scary, and their decay signs and wounds seem unnatural. I have the feeling they work superfluous in the whole context, for the real power of this drawing lies in the angels, the moon and the ruined post-apocalyptical scenario.

In my humble opinion the final score of this drawing would be an 8.5 in a scale ranging from zero to ten.

Well done!

Hey! Scrios! It HAS been a while, hasn't it? Yeah, I think this is incredible for various reasons.

The first of which is the awareness you have of the space around your focal points. You know just what to do with them and you fill the white space well.

The character design and liveliness of their poses is also an essential part that you've paid close attention to, so grats!

The whole picture is epic and amazing, but favorite angel is the one on the right. I'd like to see more of him at some point, too. :)

haha yes that was actually going to be the original center piece but I wanted the viewers to be able to see more of Scrios's armor and stuff so I pushed him to the side and gave him a beard. :P

this is my colorless entry [link]
The way I figure it you have a solid chance of getting in the top 25 will awesome lines and color that is really good. and if you get that then joe will see your work. I just hope when I finish my colors that I can slip into the top 25 so he can see mine too. That to me would be a great success

That game is gonna be so f*ckin epic... or at least, it better be.

Legend of Zelda meets Devil May Cry, or so they say.

Nice piece, seems familiar... idk, reminds me of AE stuff? Only, more epic.

Idk, blame Mechquest. Plus, AE likes undead, or, likes killing undead. =P
