Don't you hate it when you're walking in dark dungeons, armed only with a candle and a glass trinket?

Thanks to miumau0, GreyScale, Lathien, Qemist, PureAwesomeness, Mrmo Tarius, Alex Pang, Neofotistou, Mr Special and everyone else who helped. WIP thread can be found here. Lots of great advice - unfortunately, I didn't have time to act on all of it.

wow your light work is really impressive :)

PNG (Level 1 Thug) @ 8/19/2013 15:52

 Simply amazing.

reis (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 9/22/2011 13:44

 Nice job work, fave it.

CELS (Level 7 Lotus) @ 9/21/2011 13:32

Thanks, Frost Butt :)

Friend (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 9/15/2011 21:25

that candle is very beautifully done

CELS (Level 7 Lotus) @ 9/15/2011 03:44

@Dweller: Thanks a lot. I myself am not happy with the hand holding the sphere, so I guess it's not completely awful.

@ Big Brother: That was actually not my inspiration at all, but I can see how people make the connection. I suppose 90% of old RPG rulebooks had a similar picture on their cover.

Dweller (Level 4 Murderer) @ 9/15/2011 02:42

Great job, I really love the left hand holding the sphere

CELS (Level 7 Lotus) @ 9/13/2011 14:37

@Snowcone: You're right about that. I didn't really think about it, it just seemed to make sense to me. And as many times before, my instincts were wrong :)

big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 9/13/2011 14:07

Reminds me of those old dungeon crawler games.

CELS (Level 7 Lotus) @ 9/13/2011 12:38

@bonehead11: Haha, thanks. Don't worry about it - I always complain to the moderators when I don't win.

CELS (Level 7 Lotus) @ 9/13/2011 12:37

@Qemist: Thanks a lot. I never got around to finishing it, but I'm glad it turned out ok in this version.

CELS (Level 7 Lotus) @ 9/13/2011 12:34

@Neo: Thanks a lot! You mean Fire of Unknown Origin? I'll have to check that out. I've never really seen any of their album art before, but I googled it when you made the comment and they've got some interesting stuff. And untill you made that comment, I thought "Don't Fear the Reaper" was from Saturday Night Live. "Guess what! I have a fever..." ;)

bonehead11 (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 9/13/2011 11:54

If this doesnt get any place, Im going to fill up an complaint. 

Qemist (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 9/13/2011 03:48

Nice! Really like the Light from the candle and wall texture! GOOD job!!

TropicalSnowcone (Level 6 GBC) @ 9/12/2011 04:17

I like this. Only problem I have with the eyes is that I feel the candle light reflexion should be on the other side. keep em coming.

neofotistou (Level 5 Captain) @ 9/12/2011 01:45

She is reminiscent of the Blue 'O'yster Cult album cover, so I'm obviously very partial to it since I used to get lost inside it as a kid. Good job, CELS

CELS (Level 7 Lotus) @ 9/11/2011 10:36

@Miumau0: I see what you're saying about the eyes, but I guess we'll just say they're not animal eyes :) A brighter reflection is perhaps more realistic, but it just looks more ominous when they have that orange tinge, in my opinion. Thanks for your help.

Miumau0 (Level 6 Made) @ 9/11/2011 03:41

This turned out good :)

The eyes on the BG should be brighter, because animals eyes reflect light pretty much.

Alex Pang (Level 7 Underboss) @ 9/11/2011 02:11

 I don't like the eyes, other then that GJ!!!

CELS (Level 7 Lotus) @ 9/11/2011 01:25

Thanks, guys!

@Tarius: Didn't realize that. If I actually develop an early 90's style of drawing, I will find another hobby. :)
@Baah: Actually, it's not a he at all :)

baah (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/11/2011 00:13

Very nice work!

With the golden eyes it reminds me of Raistlin in the DragonLance saga, is it he?

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 9/10/2011 18:10

Look behind you!

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 9/10/2011 17:58

 Looks like it came straight from an early 90s dungeon-crawling RPG! :D

Subtle animation in the preview is also nice.

Delicious (Level 10 Capo) @ 9/10/2011 17:02

Beautifully done. Excellent job! :)

CELS (Level 7 Lotus) @ 9/10/2011 16:49

Thanks a lot, sir! And I'm pleased to see you're still alive, despite the recent PJ chatter box speculations :)

ThePixelKnight (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/10/2011 16:37

Great work CELS! :) Nice to see it finished, I really like the refections on the orb. kepp up the good work.
