13 is always the best number to me :).
Notice that the Death has many fingers, not 5 as human hand, that's what I intentionally did. He takes to soul of the victim and imprison it in his amulet, eats the victim's heart and thrown to body to the river of magma...

Wonderful. I'm loving the lighting on the back and front of the figure, the splash of bright fire-magma in the corner, the way you have small bits of the poor guy flying off him. I especially like the roman numeral 13 almost hidden in the background.

You must be young. I've found that Death isn't nearly so scaring looking, the older we get.

I Love the "up take" of his soul from above and creepy hands pulling him from below....Awesome!

lol I thought this was you, glad to see you in this contest, great work .

You really did well in the composition and the colors, and the impact on the visual narrative.

The only crit I have is the moon and the tree, the tree seems abnormally warped to fit the countiours of the moon. I'm not sure if this s a design related element or composition related, but the branches of the tree might appear a lot more sinister by adjusting the contrast from the light on the moon.

Langstrum, I love your imagination and the way you put it to use. Congratulations on second place. BTW, I just noticed the hands coming up from the mist. Another wonderful touch on an excellent entry!

author says:

Thanks everyone for your comments, critiques, faves and congrats, I'm always happy to see your responses. I wanted the Death to be scary, but somehow I didn't complete my goal, maybe because I'm not scared by it. I so glad to have a chance to compete with jackaloftrades because I've learned much from him, the artist that I really admired from the early period of my study in digital painting. Really exciting to see some similarities or coincidences in this contest. I'm happy with the runner up place, that means I have to work more and more. Thank you IDt8r for your observation, that's nice to know somebody find out the details that I tried to show in the picture. Have a nice new week everybody ^^

Congrats ... I find this truly frightening ... the hands in particular just have the other side of human feel to them that gives me the shivers. Bravo!
