Blind Perspective by Ito-Saith-Webb Blind Perspective by Ito-Saith-Webb
Our blind personal views.
Of what is good or evil.
Points of perspective.

Blind faith is not only a great shield but it is also a great sword which both can be wielded to great effect from each side of morality.

This is my entry for the Bring your Vision to Life contest.

The Theme was Good Vs Evil.

PS CS4/ Intous 3
Roughly about 15 to 17 hours.

This is a critique from :iconthe-order-of-artists:

First, on the whole, even if this piece please me, the first thing who came to my mind, was a slight feeling of in-work concerning the choice of colors.

Now that I have looked it better, I understand your choice and I think it's a judicious idea. On the other side, I still wonder if a little and light work could erase this feeling a few "inconfortable".

Again, the idea is interresting, but I would be tempted to think that you've pushed it a little bit too far.
So, I ask suppositions :
Should a little touch of saturation could make a kind of recall* on the city, who will attract and "intrigue" the wiever after seeing the beast ? On the walls, or maybe a slight 'aura' emanating from them : p
Here the kind of thing I'm thinking about (but in really more colored : p ) : [link]
Also, but again it's an asking that I do also to myself, does the rock on the right should "gain" to be slightly colorized ? I think it could make this foreground coming more in front, and really distinguish the two part of the illustration.
A last thing concerning colors, but it's different, is about the green light which maybe does not reflect on the rock, as its saturation on the beast should make me think.

Anyway, more I see the piece, more I like the way you drew it. ^^ The waves are very well done, as the rain is, and the compostion is interresting.

A last thing : I just noticed the statue on top of the rock, althought I have looked the picture a long time :p

* It's a french expression, I don't know if you use this in English

I think the image is an interesting approach to the theme of the contest.

I think it is a very beautiful image, and definitely one of your best works so far. I really love the background, it looks gorgeous and very realistic.
Your work on the sea monster is great too, the tentacles look a little metallic at some points (maybe too much light?).
Are the red dots his eyes? I am a little unsure about the design of the monster, it is drawn realistically and great and all, but I can't really figure out its anatomy.

I love the work on the girl, she is very pretty, but she doesn't fit in 100%, I think it is because of the light (she is a little too lighted).

I really like the interpretation, how she gives herself to the monster in blind faith, but then again I am a pessimist, so I think the monster will abuse her faith.
Well done overall!
