Late night stuff
This is pretty awesome, I like how the metal looks. The face is suprisingly scary, I guess thats probably what you were going for, good job.
Hello, I like the first one and especially like the BG, it is very beautiful on its own, beautiful abstract. So strange, it is rough and scratchy, but it is subtle and delicate in the same time. Love these rays coming from one point like explosion and I like this print, like a finger print left by someone. These things provoke imagination.
Figure in general looks good, I think, on this BG, but you know, I think BG is solo in this painting. Figure is less domineering. I think it is because the lines and dots in BG have sharper outlines than in the figure itself. It kind of imitates farsighted vision. I look behind the character, far, far away. I think you had fun with BG more too, it is much more gentler done, with bigger attention, i think.
strictly speaking I think that this texture you used for arms and skirt clashes with very elaborated manner in which you did everything else. But that's just my taste.
I would add that you paint anatomy way too detailed, I think you like it like this, but I rarely see this in life, so many muscles on chest and arms, big and small.
Here, in Magic man thread photo of some very well fit guy, he still doesn't have all these muscles one the surface.
Specifically, chest always has one smooth surface in people.

Koh - thanks alot, mate
Shamagim - thanks, dude - good crit on the nose, i just liked the look
marco nelor - haha, ok - I will swing by your book (great stuff, mate!)
sve - hi there, the bg was the most fun for me. It is a finger print btw (my own) - good eyes! Hehe, sometimes i enjoy spraying silly muscles all over the place - in real life you dont see floating men with arms turning into metalspikes and crazy masks either, so i just had fun. I am of course aware thats its all wrong, but its alot of fun - even though i enjoy painting it more than i enjoy the final look of it. All done in a hurry. Cheers.
Arne S. - hi man, thanks. Its photoshop.

Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd
Simon, I´m your fan
great contrast and mood in both of them.
great work man.
Is that possible ?
Your use of brushtrokes and texture get better and better !
Well, maybe not a surprise, after all the doo's you draw this year ?
Respect, my man !
At first it looked like just another one of those half demon, half man-things that you see alot, but then another dimension revealed itself. That almost metal-fan bracelet texture on the arms and below his waist seems rather simple but works very well - like a sort of natural demonic attribute which sticks in my mind. And the background, though it's very active and because it sort of melts together with the character it suggests a very occult and hellish nature to the whole piece, which I like a lot. Great and subtle work!
