While thinking of who to feature here I reflected back on a piece I recalled seeing a good time ago. This image is by xeneloid and it stuck with me after seeing it for quite some time, the bold colors and complex details are just too hard to not notice. I couldn't think of any better picture to feature on my page.
I adore this image honestly, as you may know if you look through my deviantart gallery I am a sucker for backgrounds. If a drawing has a complex well put together background, I will be all over it.
THIS piece has an excellent environment, which I could stare at for hours. and quite possibly have
The artist's use of lighting and color blends so well together creating an atmosphere that while dark is just so ecstatic and full of energy. It makes it feel like you can practically hear the beating base of the music that this kind of 'gentlemen's club' or bar, would possess.
Even while filled with all these small bits of details, it doesn't take away from the main focus of the image. The assassin and the target. The girls dark smile and malicious intents, the man's unaffected and yet intent stare keen onto her movements while obviously un-alarmed perhaps unaware of her true intentions.
Although I must admit, my favorite character in the image is the awkward looking Vortian in the back there. Poor guy looks like he made a wrong turn, and ended up in the incorrect establishment. Not having a clue what to do with himself now.
This is an exceptional example of color manipulation and presentation while keeping the main part of the image in focus.
I implore you to look at Xelenoid's gallery, she has more than just IZ art in there and I personally quite enjoy her work. Especially her use of the different colors in a single art piece.
If you know someone that you think deserves a feature, note me or leave me a link on my page!
