Amakudari and The Owl King by Borruen Amakudari and The Owl King by Borruen
Hey, boys and girls, it's been so long! So yea, this is my newest deviation, it tells the story of the fight between Princess Amakudari and The Owl King. The Owl King was a despot made of everything evil, who dominated the land and brought death and darkness. The remaining people prayed for Amakudari, the celestial princess who descended from heaven to bring light, color and life to the world.

Yes the characters are as unidimensional as a cardboard paper drawn in paint, but yea, that's it haha

It was inspired by Miyazaki, some anime, some myths, Yoshitaka Amano and some other stuff.

This piece is pretty important to me, it kinda marks my comeback. It's really something I've been waiting for so long, after all it's been more than a year so I hope you like it :D

The Owl King is quite a dark and intimidating presence; I can just imagine those long, black wings flapping with very eerie, unnerving images appearing and shifting in the shadows of his wings. Amakudari is so small in comparison, but the bright white against the stark black presents a very simple, striking, and elegant contrast!

I dig this.
Awesome contract and composition.
Hell of a perspective on visual character concept.
And it's awesome there's a seed of a story here.

Absolutely a nice piece, portrays those myths and stories nicely and everything seems to be lively with vibrant colours, a lot of bright light, and The dark monsters are just awesome.
What gets me though is that most of the picture is blended well and it somewhat blurs the whole thing, and it makes sharp and clear objects out of place, like the dark one's halo... thing... Whatever that is. The sword is too although it somewhat blends in to the white so it's not a major problem.
Overall I think it's still nice, nothing too major of a mistake and most are undermined but the sheer awesomeness of this illustration.

Welcome back, I missed your work!
I really like this new piece, composition is nice and the princess is very cute. I have just one little critique: it all feels a little too blurry...
