Great Conflict by JayAxer Great Conflict by JayAxer
Done for the final testament project. Two of the characters in conflict with eachother. Went for a simplistic anime cle shade style on this one, and threw the bG into painter to give it a kind of anime look. It originally had al ot more chains ,but I got rid of them because it just lcuttered it up. left the wings simplistic to keep the anime look and to not distract too heavily. Warm colour hues on the whole thing because it's hot where they are.

Just 30 seconds of animation this detailed would make my head explode with glee. This rules.

If I didn't know better, I'd say it looks very much like a real anime. You did a great job on this, the color scheme is nicely choosen and the shading is pretty awesome. The muscles look kinda odd, especially the guy's exposed 6-pack, but I'm not use to seeing/drawing muscles so that's probably why it looks weird to me.

VERY awesome I say

This is so cool! The dude with no eyes just rocks my socks! His expression and his pose or position whatever you want to call it rocks too! And the face of the other man rocks too!
Jyto Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2005
must've been hard for you not to go overboard on the chains and wings. I might've been intirested to see what this picture would've turned out like without the anime colourwork and the dumbed down detail. Must respect the "warm feel" though. I havn't taken a look at your art since I bought your "Xurealism" comics, youve come a long way. you really seem to know what you're doing with colour. I'm impressed. I'll be watching you.

Very awesome coloring on this one. I've always loved the way you color pictures. They always come out so clean and polished looking, like something straight out of a show or something. Great work!

Amazing job! Great coloring and attention to detail! ;)
Nifey Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2005
The chains are simply amazing I must say. The flow they have and how they carry your eye around the two characters is fantastic and it's just wow how they fill the area. As well as the white hair/fur/fluff. Cel shading looks pretty awesome and a nice take back to the classics. Every gallery neds cell shadiung if they're well err the right kind of artist. The warm tones do bring that sense of heat and warmth the picture and your eye really rivets. Both of the characters look excellent and strong and the detailing is great. Excellent work. :3

RedandblackShadow Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2005
nice work! By the way, do you still do cover art for the archie sonic comics? I dont see your cover art anymore and it was the best!!! I miss it!!!
JayAxer Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2005
i did the inner page, not the cover- and no, they phased out the frontispiece so I no longer do that.
RedandblackShadow Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2005
ahh :) No! You rocked on the frontispiece!!! Of course, you are everybody's fav fan artist :)
LightningRyu Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2005
You really outdid yourself. I think you need your own anime XD Those are some awesome designs and anatomy. The perspective's really good. Yeah, it's official. You need your own anime.

ooo neat
CerebralFox Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2005
Slick work; as many have already mentioned, I love the detail, expecially in the chain.

However, I do have one criticism; the picture just seems so busy, I have a hard time figuring out how to focus on it... it's difficult to take in all at once, and my eyes keep dancing all over the place, never being drawn to, or focusing on, any one area.

Overall, though, crazy-awesome pic.
JayAxer Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2005
Yeah, in the time Idid it i wasn't able to make a real focal point. with the darker colours of the clothing and the mathching palettes also, where the 2 characters intertwine becomes confusing and a dark spot as well. I could have halo'd a little on the image to help , live and you leanr. Thanks!
dimitridimitri Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2005
Very very exciting! Tons of movement and fantastic characters. There's a real vibrancy and excitement here, making for an incredibly admirable piece of work! Again, teriffic sense of movement! :D
