I Am Hate by A-M-A-P I Am Hate by A-M-A-P
This is the third(3) and final part to this three(3) part series I created. I hope you all enjoy this one.

As the fighting continued over this 'mysterious girl in red' over Death and Evil. It was Death who had more of a heart than Evil did because Death always seen people who came before him, trying to be reborn again! "The girl in red' sparked something in Death that was never there?.. However, Hate was watching this whole time and didn't agree with Evil's minuscule's methods on his brother, Death, so Hate took Evil, removed his giant fur coat of dead animal and human fur, tied him down on the raw surface of hell's floor and set him on fire and watched. Hate just smiled and hovered over Evil's body while he burned and laughed at him.. The endless screams from Evil was a soothing tune to Deaths ears! But Death couldn't stop thinking about 'the girl in red'.. Now that Hate has taken care of Evil, Death has a chance now to show 'the girl in red' he has a heart. A heart full of black tar, emptiness, soulless but for girl to decide, none other.. What will happen... ?

This is a mini-fantasy series. Three parts were in the making of this. Go to part one to see how it begins!: I Am Death

Edit 1: I apologize for my big watermark. I was really happy how the fire turned out and totally forgot to reduce the opacity and the size.. :D

I really like this series and the story that goes with it. Love the way they trade the mistery for violence/action as they progress. I know it's not easy but I think it would be actually perfect if it was a little longer, perhaps in 5 parts or so, not more but enough to allow the themes to develop more.
About this particular part, I really like the art direction. Obviously the colors match the setting but I think the way you painted it also works well to transmit the feeling of heat (in both literal and figurative way). The character design is also good and the hatred is well portrayed in the assailant's countenance.
On one last note, if you haven't already, you should check out my favorite painter, Francisco de Goya, as I think the way he depicts "dark" subjects is simply amazing :) and especially considering it was 200 years ago!

Good job :)

This isn't my area of expertise, but I think that I could be of some help. Both my parents are in the design business (Mom has been doing graphic and web design for 18 years and my dad does game design)

I think that if you make the edges a little darker on the dragon (assuming it is a dragon) it will make him pop more. Not in solid black, but just solidify the edges slightly. draw attention to the main focus of the picture. At the bottom jaw of the beast you have a defined outline. Also, add more to the monster. You can't tell what it is really. A dragon? The Devil? I love the concept, but it needs more so people can see what you see in your eyes. Maybe wings or horns. A body would be very helpful in general.

Do the same thing next to the right eye.Same thing with what I'm assuming is a cauldron or flaming rock/fireball. It's not really clear what it's exactly supposed to be. Maybe add some more detail to it. More definition. If it's a rock add some lumps. If it's a cauldron add a handle to it; fireball, some glowing cracks that show the fire within.

You should probably define the background some more so we can tell where he is exactly. In a volcano or Hell (looks like somewhere with a lot of fire). You seem to have a lot of smoke so if you can, do a simple sketch (nothing to detailed) of something like a cave wall behind the smoke.

Outside of these small details I think you did an amazing job! This type of art is something that I look at in awe and would love to do one day myself. The color scheme is great and the lighting is wonderful. Keep up the good work!

Sorry I'm late. This is really some hate conjuring up in this piece. Beside the series, and storyline, do you see this as being "what hate looks like" to you? If so... then waw.... you are extremely vivid. Awesome artwork!

Hi. Sorry for the late reply. You asked for my opinion over your work, and I'll focus on the prose rather than the image artistry. The painting is great for starters... definitely a lot of work put into it, and that will get you places for sure if you can keep up with that level of determination. 

The prose however, that is another thing... and having taught English for over seven years, well, here is my honest grade: you've got a lot of work ahead of you. Please take this as my effort to help you improve, as I would not have taken the time to write this otherwise.

First, your two initial sentences are fragmented. Also look at the first sentence -- should you start it with "As..." or would it be stronger if you did away with the word?

So the grammatically correct way to put it (without altering your artistic approach) would be:

As the fighting continued over this 'mysterious girl in red' over Death and Evil, it was Death who had more of a heart than Evil did. (deleted because) Death (had) always seen people who (had come?) before him, (people) trying to be reborn again!

Ok, lets stop here and get some more pointers: watch your sentence tense. You want to write with the same tense. Obviously there are some cases where you will write in another tense to indicate the timeline of events i.e.: when one event happens before another etc. Try to avoid using the perfect tense unless you are British LOL. Funny coz I say that after having just completed my last few degrees from British/Australian institutions (you'll see I still spell with "ou" and "s instead of z" if only my stupid spellchecker will leave my spelling alone!!). You can confuse yourself if you try fancy perfect tense. Only use it if necessary. Normally we use the perfect tense to indicate a timeline of events that have happened in the past. It's complicated. Don't make me expand on this here!

To keep things simple, I would suggest writing in present tense -- like you are telling a story to someone around a campfire. Tell it as it is. That will get people more involved in your story. By doing this you will avoid using perfect tenses unnecessarily.

OK, next up: ambivalent sentences: 
Death always seen people who came before him, trying to be reborn again!  -- In this sentence, who is trying to be reborn again? Is it "Death" or "the People"? There are ways we can avoid conflicting ideas like this and punctuation plays a HUGE role, however, in some cases not even all the punctuation in the world can save a sentence, and ultimately the sentence may need to be re-worded a bit. So with previous corrections in place we have:

Death always sees people who come before him -- people trying to be reborn again!

Again, you might say "Well OF COURSE we're talking about the people, dummy!", but unless the reader has read every page and sentence before this, the idea doesn't stand by itself. Hence the conflict.

Going DEEPER however, we might improve on the sentence more:

Death, ever-seeing and ever-knowingly, is familiar with all that come before him -- those that wish to be re-born again!

I threw in a couple adverbs there to beef it up, and I used hyphenation to iron things out grammatically. 

Ok, this is just the beginning. I do apologise as I need to be somewhere else and I've just spent the last hour studying your work. Hey -- I took the time, see! I really wish I can finish my review, but then I'd have to re-write the books that are already out there. 

Instead, let me just end this with some advice to help you out: Read more. Simple but true. Here's the thing, I'm not trying to be a know-all dick too. I am NOT a good writer myself! (<-- proof right here) I had a hard time getting my thoughts and ideas together back when I was doing my formal education. I had a hard time making statements and backing those statements up with references. Oh gee, please don't make me reminisce!

What's important is that you carry on, you're on the right track -- just keep at it and you WILL be better. I can definitely see you becoming better than me, and I've seen a LOT of people become better than me -- so I am not BS-ing when I say this. But you do need to read more. What should you read? Just about anything I guess. I'm not a reading expert!! If I were I wouldn't have had such a hard time with my thesis!! But what I __did__ discover when I was doing my degree was that it was MUCH easier to get my thoughts and stuff together when I read things in advance. 

Now creative writing, obviously, is different from academic writing. The tense-and-punctuation practice is there however. So read whatever you like to read, but pay attention to sentence structure and punctuation. Don't just go and buy yourself a Big Book of Grammar and start reading that. That's boring stuff. I sure didn't! The reason I am such a grammar Nazi is because I TAUGHT THIS STUFF TO ESL LEARNERS FOR 7 FRIGGIN' YEARS and boy, did __I__ have to be creative in order to keep those kids from falling asleep! That was a LOT of years to improve on my own grammar!

So my simple advice is just that: Read, read, read. News articles, online forums -- with 'professionals', not 'YouTubers' (I learned a LOT from an online teacher-forum with expats bitching about life in Thailand.. LOL) -- stuff that gets edited by an editor is usually your best bet in learning what's right and what's wrong. 

Other than that, my other advice is to keep up the good work : ) !!!

edit: LOL at me not doing my homework -- I just realised that you hail from the UK. My apologies mate!

I like this piece. The only thing I'd critique about it (and remember, this is only my own opinion, so feel more than free to toss it into the virtual rubbish bin) is that it's just a tad bit too blurry. Don't get me wrong. I think the blurred vision enhances this, but the edges of the characters need to be more defined, just so we know what things are concretely. Other than that, it's a wonderful piece of artwork. Keep it up.
