When I first came across this due to the shape of hands and their position ...It made me think of how gangsta this Demon is! Other than that this is a good piece of work I love the mosquito like mouth! :D I do wonder what inspired you to create this piece! Its awesome :D

Very nice portrait :) I like the way its almost bent over with its arms out wide. Just gives it more monsterous appearance. Lovin' it.

I quite like it. and i was looking back and forth to decide which of the two I would comment, i decided that this one is the one I like the most ^^

I find his expression to be quite funny, though I would not like to bump into one of those. His tongue reminds me of a snake's tongue. Like a sensory organ; I can imagine myself it to be quite sticky too actually xP

I've always liked the rough texture your art has and even in this one it amazes me how much detail it has and makes me wonder if it would even be possible to create such an amount of details without your style. I love the suggestive textures and shapes.

Both the colours and lighting are amazing as always, the earth colours make it as if it could really exist and blend into the surroundings. The lighting and shadows give it this mysterious touch. something extraordinary, the way the green reflects on its skin is admirable and the golden reflection of the light has something magical

Though the texture of the wings aren't my cup of tea, I must say that I quite like the shape and the idea. but that's just my taste for details ^^

anyway, I am not planning on writing an essay on your art, though it wouldn't be a problem at all actually. it's a nice piece, let's stick to that for now ^^

Thanks a lot Mischx... This demon has more ancient and "authentic" mood in my own opinion, while nr 2 is more fantasy-like and has a lot more movement. (An essay would be nice... ;) )

if I have to write an essay for my aesthetics class; I'll choose one of your works to comment -if I may-, and send it to you xP anyway, I quite like that ancient feeling... it's just hmm, unexplainable

great job on making its looks super ugly :)

The precisely messy enough texture and rotting corpse color scheme combines with the uncomfortable hunched over arch of the neck and shoulders, the expression ('s looking at me.), and that tongue protruding from its jaw like an alien larvae springing from somebody's chest to make a perfectly... disturbing... image.

Sounds nice, when you say it...;) Thanks a lot, ecpkngt!
FleaFrusciante Featured By Owner May 6, 2008
That's pretty intense :D I quite like the wings, and the face is like nothing I've ever seen before!
Cloister Featured By Owner May 8, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
