Artist Comment

"Odi et amo" is latin for "I love and I hate", "Nec mortem effugere quisquam nec amorem potest" means "we can't escape death, and niether can we escape love", the writing on her back "alis volat propiis" means "she (or he) flyes with her own wings".
The left side is not a black hole... unfortunatelly you have to full view it to appreciate =p

A delicious feast for he eys of rich warm tones that feel as finely matured as the red wine tones you've used. he sultry pose, and mysterious lack of facial details & expressions adds to the touch of mystery. A beautiful combination of texture, colour, and vectoring. An excellent conceived & executed work of art.

Proposed by LordWe and highlighted by Saikusa.

    Wow, this is such an exquisite work! Although the black and white wings would belong better with Urd, Belldandy isn't a bad choice either. =3 Favorite, desu~!

    As you say, the left side is not a black hole, but it's an awful lot of dark color all in one place. I love the details of the textures and what they bring to the wall, but there's no allowance for differentiating the dark of the background with her wing (at least on my monitor I had to move my head before the LCD glare made the difference). I don't have any real advice as to how to add some distance between the two, but I think it would help make the wing be a wing and not some black space. Maybe if you just lighten the black coloring of the wing a little it might bring out more details and then we could distinguish what is what?
    In any case, that's the only thing I really have to critique. As weird as I find the "tattoo words" on her wings and back - I still like them. It adds way more meaning to the title. Especially with your description.
    I really love all the "wine" colors you've used, as aforementioned by LordWe. It's got an old world feel to it when coupled with the textures - which are also awesome btw. I really like the perspective of the character, it catches the eye more this way. Awesome work! :pacman:

    Ooh, this is nice! I really like how the wall is shown. Her mysterious back matches perfectly with the dark background. Very nice!

    Great wall. I love the texture done on this wall. Maybe the words on the wings could have been left out but this wall is fantastic. I like it alot.

    Nice work, amazing what you have done on the "black" side, it's gorgeous, the feathers and the bg texture. It's a really delicate and exquisite work, my congratulations and my fav :D

    I'm a little confused. Is the Urd or Belldandy gone bad?

  23. jaymac Feb 08, 2008

    When you first look at it (particuarly in its thumbnail size), it may not seem like much (more like a fearsome beast not related to Ah! My Goddess in any way). But when you enlarge it and get a better look, you get a better understanding of what is being portrayed. Going by what XVBadKittyVX has mentioned, it is not about Belldandy (who is being portrayed here going bad), it is just the creator of this piece has used a clever technique of implementing an optical illusion in this work to amazing effect and thus has created a unique and interesting piece.
    Great idea you've displayed here, cheche115. Keep up the good work!
