Puppeteer by Larbesta Puppeteer by Larbesta
"When facing real evil, far more intelligent, far more heartless and horrifying than you are, what is left to do? The only thing possible is fight it and pray that the Gods will be at your side, for if you fail, the whole world shall be undone."
My main character, Ash(on the right) fighting the Preacher of the Fallen Gods, puppet master Dalros, whose marionettes are made of crushed children bones.
Yes, this concept is as disturbing for me as it is for you, probably even more.

I always love pictures that tell a story or convey an atmosphere successfully. This one manages that very well. The colors and character designs used in this picture are excellent and the overall story about the puppet master and children's bones is very interesting. The first minor critique of this piece would be about the somewhat stiff expression of the character holding the swords (the face could be exaggerated a bit more, to better convey struggle/pain). The poses could also use more exaggeration. They remind me of traditional Russian folk art and book illustrations, which is an interesting style, but I think more theatrical, contorted hands, arms and legs would make your pictures far more impressive. Everything else about the painting is fantastic.
What do you think?

o ok. The 2 things in my signature are unrelated, but whatever. I think that would be a sort of silly thing to loom over people. I mean, if Im going to really confuse people Id rather talk about something other than glitter. Maybe the early discography of some obscure indie band or the reincarnations of Spider-man or something intelligent like that.

yeah ok that's fair enough, but i wasn't being a critic on your comment just thought it was funny(your comment)
i know alot of people on this site cant read german and get confused over a german line like that, no matter what's in it
so i thought it would be funny to tell you i can actually read it, no real thought put behind it really

I know what your getting at. Thats what happens when I get let out of my cage, I just end up confusing people. People just dont realize how funny I am. Now that I look at it it does seem kind of confusing. Maybe I should make a note that they're unrelated.

it wouldn't matter really XD, people who don't understand german will never understand what you type in it, it could be about how a lemon is screwing a toaster wich is being abused by a refridgerator and less then 15percent of people would know what it would say
