It seems that "the best Dan" has lost his last battle.


Let's just see the first blow.

Thanks for cheering, I hear you. Hope I'll get visited by inspiration fairy and lose my red tear drop on this battle.


And now for the first blow:
A bad news is insinuating into her life, her knight died defending his king from many infidels...

great start! a lot going on here. I really like the lighting through the windows. Since there are several little bits (particularly the monks & the birds), I'm curious about understanding if there is more meaning?

Thanks BEANS- for kind words, you are a keen observer. Indeed I like using not so obvious elements, I'm glad I didn't made them too hidden to get noticed

Critique/advice is always welcome (a better person is a good listener).


There is a way to read this image from left to right that supports the main character. On the left is the little insidious evil creature that play the role of bad event, after is the praying priests (symbol for death) and on the right are the pigeons (peace, purity) that are leaving the scene. Hope I didn't get too boring with details, sorry

Nice story and symbolism, good lighting and perspective. I have one comment/question. The light and shadows on girl's face are very strong, so it seems that she is old, or super skinny, which is fine, I am just wandering if it was intentional. Great job in general! Cheers!

aliakseikoran: Thanks for consideration, I was going for sadness on her face, the original picture already had the tone and I tried to accent it seems not so successfully.
