Daily Deviation

Given 2010-10-28
Pom by *TastesLikeAnya. I'll be honest, first thought when I was this was "wtf is this?" but that was swiftly followed by "Who cares? This is AMAZING! Must be DD'd!" ( Suggested by Hfoursaur and Featured by Pixel-Spotlight )
I agree with the person who recommended this DD. "WTF is this? Who cares, it's cool!"
The technique on the character is beautiful. Your skill in digital coloring is fantastic but I would like to make a few suggestions on the composition. My guess, based on the character is that you are heavily laying on the details of symbolism. The British flag and the pomegranate are the key players. But I'm wondering how you can finish telling this visual story with your background. You don't have to spell out the full idea or story but giving hints that would draw our eyes around the page from the flamboyant character into the background which in comparison to the character is rather flat and lifeless. The biggest thing I see is the use of warm colors on the character and the cooler tones on the background starting with the tip of the sword, going to the flat archway, and then the Grey day scene. Sometimes just warming up the tones in the surrounding scene can add the life and tiny detail you need to pop the character even more. The archway itself could REALLY use some loving. Whether it's the detail in the stone or maybe some symbols that again draw back in that story element of what IS going on in this image. You've started with the Omega symbol at the top, Roman numerals are always a fun fall back for historical references. My biggest suggestion is to just keep going on this piece. It's a fantastic idea but I don't think it's finished yet. I hope this helped some. Congrats on the DD! Good luck!

DUDE, haha, I just found you on front page and had been going through your lovely gallery, then I stumbled on this!
I saw this back in college (my brother had sent it to me), and it was one of my biggest inspirations when I was learning how to digitally paint.

Sorry for the random story, but I just thought it was such a cool coincidence. Watching your gallery for sure!

Anyone mentioned the ruins of Pompeii behind the pommel-holding, pomme-granate munching, Pom Pom sporting, Pompous Pomeranian in the picture? :D

Yeah, I think they'd all been mentioned, but you did get a lot.

Pomerian holding a pomgranate and the pommel of his sword with a pom on his hat.
There are probably more "pom's" in there, but heck - they fit too well together ^^
This one, is a fine job...
