The vampire piece is pretty legit - that smile is so sinisterly sweet. I'm liking how city of god is coming along as well
The feet of the vampire could use some major work though. The ankles look broken and the heels misshapen.

Great concepts on both, prefer the inverted birth/death myself.
What's with the naked girl fight?

Thanks man. Tho i can not agree here on the feet with you, imo the feet is one of the best part about the image. You might see that most body parts of the vampire are a bit twisted, thats what gives the creature expression.
Thanks! I will finish the baby painting once i feel better (have a bad flu), need to work on the city of gods image too
Thanks, there are 3 concepts actually, the naked girl fight, thats the 3th, its about a newborn vampire

your paintings are awesome, i especially like the one with the vampire, the dark atmosphere, glowing eyes of the vampire and relfections in the water make it one of my favourites.

The vampire stuff is really cool, the figures and skintones are great. The only thing I could mention is it's kinda motionless though we're in the middle of furious battle.

i love the baby picture
,i prefer the 3rd wip for the baby's face,being happy is far more powerfull and its like he made things hard for the big guys on purpose,i dont like his expression crying in the finished one...
for the vampire one???newborn???if you didn't explained things ,there's nothing unborn in this piece...
for the grave one:
its a nice idea but it would be nicer to see a dead body lying on its back,with full clothes on, and not so decomposed...
it would better with him sitting on top opf his body in a "soul form" ,like the surounding ones, scratching his head,no?
(its very rare to bury someone at a skeleton stage and naked..)

Thanks for your thoughts.
The happy baby face does not fit here.
1) The baby did shit himself, at this point they are usually not so happy.
2) Dealing with a happy baby would not be a big problem.
yes, newborn vampire, turn not long ago, unable to control his thirst.
I could even name the image new born hate or new born fear, newborn is not exclusively about babies or eggs.
For the grave one, i see your point but that would be the first thing everyone expect, some ghost wondering what happened. Thats not very special or interesting imo. About the body.... this is a WIP is a very early stage, it will look different when its done, i suggest you want. But i can tell you for sure, there will be no full dressed body in a coffin pose sticking out.

for the baby here is what i was suggesting
i think it's stronger with the baby KNOWING what he's doing ,we are not in the reality where baby cries when they poop.
,but you do what you want!
about the vampire:
"I could even name the image new born hate or new born fear, newborn is not exclusively about babies or eggs."
if this is true then any image would fit!!
you know, we can't stop having new feelings or emotions or thoughts all the time (even vampires)and if what you say is correct then,any situation and image is "newborn" in that view ....(newborn kill ,newborn this ,newborn that ,newborn spaceship...so on)
i'm really sorry ,your image looks great and all ,but i can't see any "newborn stuff" in there...
again ,you're the man and you do what you think is right...just my views

I get the point with the baby and i am sure that many people would love it.
Its so "home alone"... i personally hate it, i can not stand it when animals or newborn babies start to make faces. Thats not the kind of humor i go for.
If that were another scene where some military equipment was messed up by a 5 years old i could see that kind of face but not on a baby.
i know what you mean about the vampire, i guess the newborn message does not come out well here without telling, i agree.
Tho i must admit its really tough making any kind of image that would make you say it is about a newborn (something)
Most images will contain something newborn, sure but the main topic is always something else.
That photo you posted for example, lets imagine that lil girl is a newborn baby. No one would ever say the image is about a newborn, people will tell you that the topic is about a burning house or about kids playing with fire. You know what i mean?
Its not easy making the newborn a center of the topic.
So, making the content more obvious does not make it more right.
I try, i think the first and 3th image manages but i agree its a rather tough call in the vampire pic.
As a matter of fact i am working on another vampire image since 1 week already that will handle this topic. You will see it sometimes later
Thank for your time!

you misunderstood me there...
i dont say that the girl and the fire is newborn!!
i'm talking about her face expression that would fit on your baby,like he knows what he is doing :an awfull and smelly shit,and that would annoy the big guys ,that's all!!!
(and its not home alone at all)
