Torment by CanisAlbus Torment by CanisAlbus
Guilt, disgrace and fear of hell.

Have you ever tried to draw an interior of a Gothic cathedral? I tried my best with the background here and I must say, even with references, they seem like one of the most difficult things to draw. So many details, it's madness. But so pretty as well~

Staedtler pigment liner, Faber-Castell colored pencils, graphite and Gimp.

Artwork, character CanisAlbus

This is amazing! I love the lighting ^^ And im glad you put so much effort into the background. especially because of the complexity of the build of a cathedral. A lot people get lazy and make half of it a big jumbly mess.

I really love this piece. The warped perspective makes you feel like you are descending into madness with the character. Not sure if it was intentionally warped but I think it really works. And the lineart, oh gosh the lineart! Those red ribbions or wrappings on the character's hands, and the eyes, and the mouth! oh I just love your lineart :heart: so many little details that I just want to stare at.

i dont think she has a full biography.. Though i dont blame her. I dont normally take the time to do that. I did once though.. it took hours. There are lots of things to make sure you cover. Its a lot of work

Noo, I've never tried to draw the inside of a gothic cathedral. It must have been difficult with all the lines and weird perspectives and everything. Maybe I should try this. It would be an interesting challenge. 
You did very well, by the way. Machete is such an interesting character with all his weird emotions. xD His expression and pose are very well done. I can tell you like the color red. xD

the character, Machete, is very cool and well designed.
But ... the perspective of the place is a bit broken.
I realize that the tiles and some pillars.
but nothing you can not do better with training dear;)

The sense of dread in his eyes is verily accentuated by this fellow's dynamic pose and the background you have gone to such lengths to achieve. You must know that this is simply amazing :D

I think you did a good job with the interior, I learned about Gothic architecture in an A.P class. So it looks really good, also I love how you used red in this picture.

I love the atmosphere and his expression. Great work, it's almost like the cathedral is judging him. Just my thought, haha. :)

Very nice! I love the lines and angles!
The red is an awesome touch! :)
Awesome as always!

It sort of reminds me of the "hellfire" sequence from The Hunchback of Notre dame, although I doubt a woman would cause Machete's inner devils ;P

I used to be a catholic and as a child, whenever we went to the cathedral I would stare at the decorations instead of listen. :'D 

Gorgeous piece though, and the red, yes I like it! :heart:

Really? I didn't know that :'3
Daammn I'm kind of jealous. Catholicism never really reached the place where I live so we don't have cathedrals here. Our churches are small with little decoration and they're usually made of wood rather than stone; not much to look at. 

Thank you~
