Really wanted to contribute to this weekly with my fear of death, but didnt have as much time as I would have wished for, so this is kind of the slopjob version. hopefully a more worked through version will come soon... (Wanted to work on things like the ground and the chain and the metal rendering more, but hey...weekly waits for no man)

The idea was to make a slightly different version of death, slightly inspired by "sjunde inseglet" by ingmar bergman. pretentious huh? ;)

Unbelivable that you have only used 15 colors!

Spectacular shading and colors, this is amazing!!

Great! Just gave me the impression that you fear time :3 (I think some people do?)

Extremly nice use of colors!
Snyggt gjort!

awesome, i like. i would only say that you seem to lose a little too much detail in the mid-dark range of colors. specifically between the dark red and the darkish green color.

but now i also see you're not done yet, so you may have that in mind already : )

peach: totally! check back next version!

good job. totally agree on what already said. good style, nice mood, and overall effect.
the only thing I'd rework a bit is the ground.

Emanu (Level 3 Chief) @ 8/27/2008 05:36

Wow this is a very cool piece.

Different "death" from the usual image that comes to mind, big size, really well done,... This just one heck of an awesome work o____o

I adore your depiction of death. Its just seems so unique and clever (:
Its called a sythe or sickle.

DoomDoom (Level 5 Detective) @ 8/24/2008 15:26
simply great!!! good job

FrostPumpkin (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 8/24/2008 13:13
I love it !
Your very own representation of death is really far from the orginal allegory but really representative of it. Surely because of the weapon (don't know the english name) and the clock.
The idea of the melting shadow at the bottom of the cape works perfectly.
Also I really like the red ribbon.
