Cold by Venlian Cold by Venlian

He is really cold, I must say. The range of colors is strict, making a little "frozen' feeling, though there could be seen sun behind the figure. But emotionaly it is a very impressive piece. I think, that seeming to be as cold as ice this young man is very passionate inside. I could call him a little bit cruel, but this cruelty is tempting.
I love the detals, especially dogs which are great addition to the image, they make it complete. Gorgeous glance and also hands gestures. He is absolutely alive. The pose is smth enchanting, making to look at the picture waiting maybe for his head or fingers move. Very strong, effective image indeed.

I got to say that the dog look so very real and the coloring on it good it make me thing that the fur it so shinny. The man at the back has a good pose and every looks very clean they you color the whole picture just looks super amazing! background it good and simple doesn't take away from the picture of the male and dogs. this is a master work you have do and keep i up! love the color of the eye on the man and the shading is very well and very detail drawing and clear line

Эх.... жаль мне нельзя критику писать) Ну и ладно! Тут тоже развернусь!
Рисунок замечательный! Мне очень нравится как в нем на образ работает все - начиная от фона с изогнутой, очень изящной решеткой, до собак, трости в руке мужчины. Просто не поворачивается язык назвать его просто парнем) Именно мужчина. Хоть и достаточно молодой. Как всегда очень яркое, выразительное, живое лицо. Очень здорово, что при белых волосах у него черные брови и откровенно черные ресницы. Это придает персонажу оттенок немного холодноватый, хищный, во взгляде появляется опасность. Вообще, замечательно и продумано, что картинка построена на контрастах - светлый фон -> черный костюм, черные собаки. И черный костюм, на котором еще светлее смотрятся белые волосы. Интересная находка, что у одного из догов светлые, янтарного оттенка глаза.
Повторюсь, что очень здорово, что в картинке все детали работают на настроение. Цветовая гамма фона действительно заставляет чувствовать холод. И опасность. Этого не скроешь. Чего стоит только пристальный взгляд мужчины. Еще и доги повернулись в ту же сторону. Очень хорошо передано напряжение в руке, которая держит собаку. С одной стороны он не прилагает никаких усилий, чтобы ее держать - дог хоть и заметно чем-то заинтересован, но видно, что будет слушаться команд - и в то же время рука готова в любой момент жестко схватиться либо совсем отпустить поводок. Так что картина создает реальное ощущение опасности. Это завораживает. Как и взгляд и красота мужчины.
Из мелочей мне понравился эффект кожи в одежде главгероя, понравилось как блеск шерсти собак дополняет аристократичность костюма мужчины.
Мне все очень-очень-очень понравилось! :love::love::love:
В каждой картинке всегда есть новые находки, это так классно!
Но неизменно одно - мужчины всегда красивые, всегда загадочный, всегда с ноткой доминантности и всегда в них хочется влюбиться так, чтобы "пешком по рельсам и в Сибирь"! :) :heart::heart::heart:

Ты прямо как искусствовед в музее) Надо было тебе на эту профессию пойти):date:
Mirianes Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Мне очень понравился его взгляд - такой с прищуром, и губы вышли выразительные. Он как будто смотрит и без слов говорит "а достоин ли ты хотя бы приблизиться ко мне?" И холодность его - внешняя, не думаю, что с тем,кто его увлечет он будет холодным. Есть такая редкая разновидность людей - они не делают ничего на публику и не размениваются в своих чувствах на абы кого. У меня этот рисунок - честно! - вызывает мурашки :) Он опасно красив и опасно, несмотря на холод, может взбудоражить кровь.
