Canticle by SIRE-N Canticle by SIRE-N
A small excerpt from one of my poems.
You can download it to get the full resolution.

Let me know what you all think. (:



Mask & Upper Hand: From my own personal stock. I purchased the mask in Venice last year
at Carnevale di Venezia and I've been wanting to incorporate its design somewhere in my art.
I really like how well it meshes.

Lower Hand Refs: :icond-is-for-duck: & :iconahtibat-stock:
Blood Texture: Package - Blood Soaked - 3 by resurgere
Sheet Music Texture: :iconjusticestock:
Font: www.dafont.com/celtic-garamond… (I edited it slightly)
Background Texture: This was a random texture I found without a listed artist. If you know
of the artist, please notify me.



Tools: Wacom Intuos5 Tablet & SAI
Hours: 8

Critique by hall0ws0fhell Feb 25, 2013, 8:03:34 AM
I honestly don't have much negative to say about this. The piece has really good depth, and is most definitely an A in terms of impact.

The only reason I gave if half stars on terms of technique and impact was that generally in my opinion the whole of the piece, or at least the guts of it, should be the focus.

Instead, the starkness of the hands tend to draw the eye to the lower left. Working by the rule of thirds, there's absolutely nothing that really draws the eye to the actual text disregarding the hand in the highest position. It kind of makes it seem a bit forced when you finally drag your eye from the visual aspects and shunts the text and intention to the backburner.

All in all, I love your work, and this piece is no exception.
What do you think?
