this picture is based on anime art (made by Bones studio I suppose - the original one - [link])
I completely redrew it, added the black blood. Now it looks more 3d.. or I don't know haw to say it - less vector. (+ added blood, glow, shadows reflections)
Check small details like reflection on the stick
Maka and Soul belong to Bones studio.
No, that's not a snake. It's just blood - Maka kissed the scythe and left this blood mark. Kinda like that.
But the snake is a really cool idea
My conviction is strong.
Those who've sinned will answer to my wrath.
I will right what is wrong.
That's not the way, the dark will absorb you
You should never attack
You will be lost like many before you
There will be no way back

Let the Black Blood consume, as long as your there.
With the madness that swallows me whole, I have no fear.
I can live within my own mind with Spider Silk controlling my body, if I can still hold your hand.
soul loves being in this form right now i bet lol. i love her pose and the background. lovely.
At first glance, it looks good, but when you really look at it, it becomes great. The level of detail in it is great- I love it when in a picture, the longer you look at it the more you notice. I like nuances and sublety and being surprised by the care that I can see was breathed into a work. I like seeing that which sets something apart.
The first thing I noticed after my once-over was Maka's hair. Once it's enlarged, I can see the fuzzy texture of it and the little individual hairs that have escaped her pigtails. That was what first made me go 'wow'. The detail in the black blood- the rich colour of it and the way it seems so very liquid. The way it's crawling up Maka, and it's drawn so nicely. The buttons on her coat. The mist around them, that I only noticed a few minutes in. The -holy crap, I just noticed the shaft of the scythe (I can see the reflection of her coat buttons and tie in it oh lord that is wonderful!)- ahem. The lighting of it- light reflecting off her skirt and gloves.
This is beyond awesome. So going in my favs.
I re-drew it. I hope you will see the difference.
is made with paint?
