Full view please!

This illustration shows one of the main conflicts given in my fantasy story "Terra Aluvis". To the left you see the prince of darkness, Lymeyn Sigmah Escados, and to the right Lewyn Ichigo, who is being driven to tear the root of light off his soul.

Enjoy and share thoughts! ;)

This is clearly a very original piece since they are your own characters. Since this piece is so great, I'm surprised it didn't have a critique already. I really like how his hand (the white character I've forgotten the name of.) reaches into his heart, and becomes light. It makes me think that there is a forbidden romance between these two. Because he is trying to give the dark one his heart. You should write a fan fiction of these two. (I would definitely read it.) You are and amazing artist. I really like how they fade into the clouds. I also like how the light shines on him. It's as if the dark one is trying to seduce him. Once again, you've done and excellent job on this and you should definitely continue your work. :)

Here you have once again presented us with a master piece of story telling. Your ability to tell a full and rich story with one picture is incredible. The characters are wonderful. I love that they both embody their elements of light and dark so completely. Vision: This is something that there is a story behind. It is clear that you put a great deal of thought behind the creation of this work. Originality: The idea of the darkness seducing the light is not a new concept. That being said, I think that you have captured this idea in a fairly original way. While the characters are clearly of the light and the darkness, they are not presented in a stereotypical fashion. I admire your ability to make their allegiances so clear without falling into the trap of older visions. Technique: This is a beautiful piece. I think it was wonderfully executed. The one thing is that the arms of the being of light do not seem in proper proportion. This is not something that I think destroys the piece, but it did distract me from the work's entirety. Impact: This piece screams at me. I can feel the pain of the light and the longing of the dark. It is a wonderful piece! Again, thank you for sharing your work and I look forward to seeing what you present us with next.

xD Sacris would need to pick someone (coughcoughjeromecoughcough) and I can
see the only way Sacris would be able to stop bloodshed would be to seduce that sexy Jerome
there to prove he's the only one for him ;3

Nyahahaharharhar that sounds like a plan ;DD
(unfortunately that would drive Lewyn definitely into suicide x_x and THAT would be something Sacris could not live with)

Beautiful picture. I love how the light is being driven out by the encroaching darkness. It does look like the dark is seducing the light and stealing his heart:)

Hi, I'm critiquing as part of #SelfTaughtArtist critique program. I have not received any formal art training, so please forgive me if I say something pompously idiotic. :)

First off, you caught my attention so kudos to that. I was attracted to the painting by the light glow set on a dark background and Lewyn. Then I noticed the prince of darkness and all the other details.

Concept-wise, I think it's good. Composition, however, could use some work. For one thing, since the light glow is an important player in the painting, it should be given a more prominent place, meaning the figures should be set lower and to the side to allow more light to show and create more interest.

The proportions of the figures are also a bit off. If the prince is supposed to be bigger than Lewyn, then something should be shown that he is. If not, as he is behind Lewyn, he therefore should be smaller. To show he is bigger, you could lower and extend his body, where it morphs into the clouds, for one thing. Exaggerating his size can also present him as a more imposing and threatening figure.

Tldr: I love the concept and the idea behind it. I hope this critique is helpful and that I made sense. :)

Thank you for such a detailed feedback =)
You have pointed out some interesting things I will surely take into consideration in my next works =)
The thing with the proportions is quite difficult - Sigmah is maybe one head taller in total than Lewyn, but I wanted to have him leaned toward his ear and wanted him to change into clouds down from the waist. The light is supposed to get only a little space - although I could really image a version that is expanded very much into the upper right corner, so you would have a lot of empty dark space and only a tiny ray of light falling onto the two small figures in the lower left corner (Lewyn would seem more "lost in darkness", I presume)... but then my focus on the two characters would be completely lost, I think ...
Oh that's complicated^^ I really have to improve a lot =)
Thank you once more!
