Daily Deviation

Very interesting composition. Honestly, at first I wasn't looking that closely because of the positioning of all the elements, but those "flaws", if you will, are what make this picture really unique and intriguing.
Positioning the main viewpoint right in the middle is uncommon (unless you're doing character sheets or pin-ups), but then using that viewpoint to also cut the picture almost right in the middle is even more uncommon (and as my professor always put it "make you look like an amateur for not using the golden ratio"). That is not true here and makes absolute sense. To try and depict it differently would be to tell a different story...

The bright colors in the background at first catch your attention and then direct your view to the darker, more shaded area in the middle where you discover this warrior/sentinel who personifies the word "camouflage" by blending in so expertly. And then - even better yet - the story continues and you see the head and start to make up the story...
And now, even after quite some time looking at it, I still discover new hidden stories.

To conclude the wise-ass-ery: I totally love it

I love the way you combined modern art techniques to a more classic theme. The black and white textures really add to the character's danger and fearfulness (both in the reflection and out). Whereas the warm colors you have added give the image a more interesting and eye catching effect.

I also love the details along with the time and effort you have put into this image. I find it depicts what emotions were going through your mind at the time, and the way you show them is truly breath taking. I would love to see this in an art show sometime.

Although, this piece is truly a master piece in my opinion, I have seen your amazing gallery and I would love to see some full art color art, sometime.

Your an extremely talented artist! Keep on impressing the world with your full beauty.

Wow, this is really cool! The high contrast, textures, and stunning orange overlay really make this piece stand out. Great work.

A very intense work.  Usually orange is a sign of warmth, but here, with the bit of grotesque occurring in the middle third, it is much more a color of warning and danger.
