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!

Very god emotion with this although I feel the it could be a bit more emphasized. It seems a bit too soft on the details rather than give that harsh raw feel. But overall I really like it.
taytayisawesome Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2014  Professional General Artist
I really like this picture^^

I like the emotion it's showing and the overall feel, the composition is good, the eye goes straight to the main character you have in the middle and then goes to the rest of the pic. It looks like you spent a lot of time on it, the only thing I would say you could improve on is more details. It's a little too blurry overall, the main character should have more details besides just the face and the person being burned alive or whatever should have a bit more definition i think to show more depth. The focus should be on the characters and then the background is perfect

I hope that makes sense haha D:
Carlos-Meza Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
For what I see, the painting is good, I like the design, the colors, and the composition, although it would bee nice to see more edge, detail and texture on the demon and on the foreground to create a focal point and deepness, for example adding some rocks in the front in dark values and detailed lightning on them, and for the demon add some texture in the face depending if it is bone or scales.
Apart from these things your work is very nice and can be easily improved to a whole new level.

Keep on the good job!! Greetings ;) (Wink)

Looks like it could suddenly get out of the screen ... I don't think there's another way to represent this "dark" feeling... good work :D
Layneon Featured By Owner Edited Dec 15, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
First of all, this is pretty amazing !
Purely capturing the emotion

An amazing piece !!!
Sajitarius Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Cool :D The artwork really captures the emotion of Hate. The fiery effects look pretty amazing too :D
Jay101 Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2014  Student General Artist
Ooooo this is great! <: I love all the shadings, and all the warm tones you used to show all the fire. The face is also nice and scary! X3
kyuubikurama1 Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2014
Damn I just thought of something. Is this supposed to be the creature of hate from the green lantern movie ? It looks like it, but either way nice job
Yendysear Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2014  Student General Artist
This is very cool! The story and the drawings tie the whole thing all together very nicely and the effects of the fire is great! It's dark and scary, but it's very well done in that aspect! Good job!
tsukune5432 Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2014
Dude this is fucking amazing
yindo Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2014
i like this.

The balance between darkness and fire is well done as well as the dynamic with the lines and the curves which bring our eye to meet the mouth of the "hateful thing"

Beautiful! *applauds and wipes tear from eye*

I can say a lot...The fire is great, and the -monster?- really looks good. But maybe is it too blured...
EternityBlue Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I know you asked for my thoughts on this piece, but I couldn't help but read the whole story! The concept was very creative. I hope to one day raise my painting skills to be as good as this.
LaurenSkylar Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2014  Hobbyist
This is really good. I get a lot of emotion from it. Good work!
Megarai111 Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow! Awesome!
Why can't I draw/paint again, myself?
..oh yeah. I don't have the skills for it, and I'm way too impatient XD
Anyway, your way of drawing fire is awesome! I love the design of that firespitting-thingie too, those eyes really pop out in combination with the dark background :)
Great work! :)
SirReii Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Really good :) I like the fire effect you used.
MeysonMeyson Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
An interesting beginning of a story, really! The last illustration reminds of Spawn series. But the second one, I Am Death, is the best as I think.=)

I really like the atmosphere and the colors ! I really like that kind of death allegory/monster, there's something huge about it, it's impressive and I wouldn't like to be in front of it ^^ great job =)

I love your style, you did a nice work on the atmosphere it's dark and scary! Continue like that. :)
Shadowglader Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
WOAH this is clearly well made and has a lot of depth in the construction of this piece. The story is great!!!
khkairi12 Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
I like what you were aiming for, that heat radiating from the page, but I feel the left side seems kind of bare. I don't know what should be added, haven't read the story yet, sorry I couldn't be more help.
Stacheous Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014   Digital Artist
Interesting concept! I like the way you paint this to interpret the story!
I like I Am Death the most! the design and liquify effects works for the piece!!!
For this piece, you can try using blue-ish brown for dark areas and more color changes for the fire : ) and also, try to make Hate's face more sharper by sharpening the edges of his head. It's a bit hard to see what his body looks like so need to paint just a little bit of detail but make it slightly blur so the head will be the main focus in this picture : D
cajobif Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014
The thing you have to do to make someone forget a girl.

Wonderful work. Interesting story.
jieowo Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love how you shaded and also how you did the detail!
ShiNoTamashi Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
I love how the eyes seem to glow, this is probably my favorite of your art. !
personiita Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014
I love the contrast and shading ~ Its got a good focal point that's not dead center and I like the flow of the piece, your eye doesn't get stuck in one place. Neko Emoji-28 (Yay sho happy) [V2]  Great job the textures are really awesome too. Only advice would be maybe add some dark blue in the darker parts to vary the colours a little but its really up to you.
oXHersheyKissesXo Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, my god!! This is amazing, the colors you used blend in so nicely, it's crazy. But the effect you put must have taking forgive because its flawless. (Thank for showing me this) ThIS HAS TO BE AN EPIC ART PIECE!!!clap clap

An incredible piece with great character design and environment. Though I've only read this part of the story it is good, and makes me wonder who is this "girl in red"?
Ziggyfin Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014   Digital Artist
This looks really cool!  A little freaky, but that's alright!  I like freaky!  I looooove the nostrils and eyes on Hate.  Though the form is a little simplistic it's still pretty menacing! I have to say though, I would suggest some more hard lines to distinguish the characters more.  I didn't know the dude on fire was a dude until I looked closely at the picture.  There's quite a bit of blur everywhere and I think that takes over most of the piece.  Still, it's pretty terrifying and I think that's what makes this picture a good one!  Keep it up!
Angelkissedhorse Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014  Student General Artist
Love the concept! I think that Hate should be darker, like how dark it is around his face/head, just because his body seems to blend in with the flames and background. His face is truely scarey and you did a fantastic job! :)
MrSleepybear Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014
Very interesting, I like people who think of stories for their art
Kage-no-Seikatsu Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014
I have to admit this piece gets me pretty stoked... hehe stoked, never mind. But I am fascinated with the face or Evil, it looks to me something between a skull and a serpent. Then there is Death smoldering in the foreground, pain etched on his face in flame (nice touch). Personally I've haven't much tried my hand at painting or the skills and techniques involved. All I can offer really is that I like the way you've laid this scene out and the composition keeps one's eyes focused within.

Well i got asked to do it, i will try my best,though i never did it.

This is an great and awesome piece, with an grat use of the colors of the fire and the darkness mixed together,it have an great creative image and story, i hope to see more of those, the effect on the fire,especially the sparks are very well done,well...everything in there is very well done, never had seen so much perfection in one image.
D-E-A-M Featured By Owner Edited Dec 13, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Since I got asked, I make an attempt to do my best! I'm not one for making specific Critiques sadly, my English is horrible to describe tings in long detailed sentences for example, but I'll do it.

In general, the art looks pretty neat, I love the colour changing fire and sparks with (I assume the creature's name is..>) Hate's head sticking out of it with some schading around the neck. However, I can't seem to think what the darker part on the left is. Perhaps his arm? The art is kind of blurry (unless it was your total purpose to do so without making much out of it), guessing you have used waterpaint or a soft brush, maybe. Right before I read the description, I couldn't put my finger on what he set in fire. I thought it was just a firepit on hell's floor.
Anyhow, maybe it's an idea to harden edges of a living thing in a very detailed art just a tad more next time making this kind of art, though there's nothing to totally dislike on this art. You surely did an amazing job! Just the idea of using a harder brush might improve the view of your art. I don't find myself much of an art professional as I'm not on this skilling level, but I hope you are satisfied and this can help you out! :)
A-M-A-P Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you! La la la la 
I am going to work on making my next art works more defined! :D

The fire and the creature are looking really awesome!
I love this powerful style and the little story makes it really interesting!
