Runner by APSpinks Runner by APSpinks
A picture from a recent comic book project I was working on set during the Vietnam war. This ended up being a potential cover for the comic. It depicts a soldier who has fallen victim to a vampire killing.
Great sense of flow, my eyes are drawn all around the piece, it seems like there are no natural dead spots, I mean, it flows round and round until I consciously break out of it. Interesting choices you made with the man's head laying down and path or creek that the boy is running to. Good choices, the piece is totally packed, almost cramped, but still it's not busy or overwhelming. I like how you broke up all the angles, I think that helps a lot with what I said about the focus being shifted around continuously.

Your perspective is quite good, the dead man looks well proportioned, maybe his hand is a little small? It looks sort of.. emaciated, anyway. Has he been dead for long? (I'm assuming those are bullet holes in his head). Perhaps he was struck by the sitting character.. It's a little hard to tell that the hatted man is holding a num chuck (what are they actually called..@_@)

The darkness works well, your technique is great. The scratchiness of the whole thing.. it's perhaps even more disturbing than the content. Though I would like to see a little more detail..?

All in all it evokes a strange feeling, the foreground being dread, oppression, terror, the background being.. hope. Freedom, yet tempered by the running person's posture, it's like she/he is running in fear. I like it!
