Those Hollow Eyes by DamaiMikaz Those Hollow Eyes by DamaiMikaz
I could only laugh at their foolishness. So smart, yet a small child could win from them. My pale skin almost seemed to glow from all the energy that was running through my body. Such a pretty sight, yet so terribly dangerous.

Were they aware of my powers..?

I closed my eyes and emptied my mind. No more fear, or bad thoughts haunting my mind. Soon it would all fade away... until only madness remained.

Overall I really like this piece, your painting skill with the digital medium is very impressive with a unique look and style to it. I love that it is very rough in some places and more finished in others, it gives much more character and feeling to your works.
I would of liked to see a bit more detail on the hair and neck, but the eyes are the focus of this piece and for that alone you blended them well, they look to be part of the character rather just on top of the character that you see quite commonly with such concepts.

Only thing I would of liked to see is maybe a different light source maybe lighting from behind or maybe above the character, for me that would of given this a much higher impact and wow factor.

Overall I rate this piece a 7 / 10 :thumbsup:
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
53 out of 60 deviants thought this was fair.

i think this is a very good picture. There are only somethings that I would need to be corrected. One of those things is that you should be that where the light source is coming from.

But other than that overall i think that this is a very good picture. I really like the bledning that you have done show you can tell that the darker tones and lighter tones are all part of the same skin.

Finally I just want to say that this is a very good image, other than the indication of where the light source. It is a very good image.

so keep up the good work

After understanding this drawing, well my aspect of it, I get the chills, sometimes I cry for the hollow eyes and the story I put behind this drawing goes like the binding of isaac. Its a game which well... has a story that will tell you the story. If you are curious about it you should go check it out and you will get what I mean

Maybe a rose never build torns if they where ugly, simple and strong like grass.
The red rose is not so fragile, but never meant hurt innocent girls whith its torns.
But this would never happen if they let the flowers grow in their own place.
There is no terror, but love.
Thorns in roses desire to not be cut away from other roses.
I cry every time I see fools crush buds of roses, or cut away from their roots away from their family, because is not "their places."
Stupid paisagism.
Who is the villain? the torn, or the insensive human?
Flowers need peace. I love those flowers. Even in times the petals falls, and their empty eyes seems like terror, dead.
I dont touch them, even when they grow in my path. Is the cicles....
But i don't want my flowers to be cut away from my sight, from its roots, in virgin forrest.
Love them in their roots.
I love... flowers.
I respect their cicles.
I'm afraid of the knife girl... is not fair... tears.

Nicely done! I would agree with the critiques about the lighting, needs a bit more punch, but overall a great idea.

This reminds me of the story of black eyed children.

The placements of the red in the picture makes it seem as though the thoughts or words placed below are racing thoughts. I also took from this picture that the red is fire as it seems to be coming from something casting off a shadow. Did this child set fire to something and is he angry?

The simplicity of DamaiMikaz's replies are just magnificent. 
DamaiMikaz Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's part of a huge plot that takes hunderds of pages. 
I can't imagine anyone is waiting for an answer that long XD
Cauderick-Sama Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
xD True.
Just wondering, have you ever considered Wattpad? Or to self publish your novel in general? Or is it that you have already done so, or actually prefer not to make Emion public until its completion?
DamaiMikaz Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
First of all; the story is written in my native language; Dutch.
And about publishing... I've thought about it. But there's still a long way to go and I want to experience the story myself first, before I decide to publish it.

Hello there! I'm new to Deviant Art and I think my first comment should be on this piece.. Very impressive. I kinda sink in this one, wondering what goes through his mind. He really has the look of an observer, almost critisizing what he sees.

Keep up the good work :) // Adam

Thanks for the fav earlier today.  I keep jumping onto this image when I check out your work.  I really like it for some reason.  It's kind of spooky, but the movement in it is incredible.  (I need to check if I said this before. lol)
