Listen, a heartless shout. by OrientalisDraco Listen, a heartless shout. by OrientalisDraco
*EDIT - 08 SEPT 2009*
Darkened the image because it was quite disgusting on my monitor hahaha. I painted this piece on my dad's computer and his screen isn't thoroughly calibrated. The image is closer to what it should be.

==========

For :iconmessa: and :iconnadadee:'s Black Feather Gospel contest. (It always takes me a second to realize that when they say BFG they mean their web comic and not, y'know, BFG. :XD:)

Yeah, I know half a dozen people are going to do the whole symmetrical/mirror images thing with Lucifer and Michael, but I've had these images stuck in my head every since I read about the contest. :| This is my version.

Lucifer's uniform is actually a dark, slightly bluish gray colour. The fact that the light is a cold green-blue just makes it appear greenish.

I looooooove the sword it looks really nice and metallic. The only critique I have on this one is that there seems to be a minor tangency issue with the trim that runs roughly parallel to his sword. It's location and the fact that it's so similar in color to the sword that it could almost appear to be a part of the blade...I hope that makes sense, lol.

You get a cookie for being the only person thus far to see that. :cookie:

Yeah, I saw that myself, which is why I tried to fudge with it on a tonal level so at the least you could tell one was the uniform trim and the other the sword. But thanks man! :D

no, it's great. I see really nice metal texture, and I really like hands you drew. but the only thing is.. a metalic decoration on the coat does look little weird. Is it your intention that looks like silver paper? anyways, overall painting is nice

Yeah, that metal decoration hanging off his coat pocket is a bit flat looking. This was painted with my old tablet, so I should probably go back and tighten things up now that I have my new one...but i r teh lazy. :|
