The lone and level sands... by Ashwings The lone and level sands... by Ashwings
For Daryl. :icontakeru-san: Cause his comic and art rocks.
This guy creates sexy and moody lighting in his works, I tried to do the same but I think I failed.
Our personas hanging out. Why are they striking a fairly retarded pose out in the middle of a barren wasteland? I dunno! Where are the zombies!? :noes:

Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe Shelley seems quite fitting for parts of the TZH world. Why? I'll never tell you!

I met a traveler from an antique land
Who said: "Two vast and trunk less legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
`My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings:
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

Actually, no, I didn't...
What is "The Alchemist"? A novel?
Anyway, it's good to meet others who know that poem!

Yeah, its a novel
[link])
the poem really does have a great message to it, and it makes me wonder, would ozymandias shudder with fear at such a sight as the pair above :D

Well, those two don't seem like the type to make Ozymandias "look upon his work and despair".
But the pair are zombie hunters and Ozy lived thousands of years ago, (which means he would be a zombie nowadays), so...I dunno.
Thanks for the link! Was it a good read?_

Vanity is a sin!

But, y'know, when you bash things with a shovel for a living you can get away with anything. X3

YAY! A GIFT ART FOR MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!

We killed all the zombies I guess. This looks like the aftermath of our undead killing spree at 'Surrounded by the Dead' artwork. The backdrop fits the time and mood.

Love the awkward pose. :P

P/S: we must've been on the desert too long... my hair has grown! LOL



Thanks Jen!

Good job. I love the lighting in the background. It reminds me of a dark, mysterious twilight that you just don't see enough in good art these days.

I like the mood of this drawing. The characters are obviously posing for a camera shot ^^
Zombies are just lurking out of camera view as always (they always seem to pop out when you are not watching).

Love the colour and atmosphere. I think you very much succeeded in creating dramatic/moody lightning. :D

Hehe. These two look like a dynamic duo. :)

I'm going to have to disagree with you on that point.

So what, you have different styles. Does that change the fact that you do a better job at detail, characters, and so forth? I would hope not.
