heartbreaker hank by questionstar heartbreaker hank by questionstar
In case you couldn't tell I like my demons to look... demonic X) But as usual I wasn't sure what I was trying to do and just let the picture take me where it wanted. I think the mirrored-design look is kinda cheap but who cares I wanted to try it! IT SURE IS PINK. And sparkly??

mhmmanyway. Hank's an incubus who I gave to ~ru-debega to put in one of her 3490589384 stories. At some point I felt I had more to say about him... BUT I FORGOT

this is awesome... it's surely scary, but i can't stop staring at it, for some reason.

Awww he's so adorable. He has Michael Jackon's nose! o.O (Though I think Michael might've been a wee bit cooler if his face split open like that. ^^)

Either way, I love his design. And the pink... that is love. And cotton candy. *sigh* I love good character portraits.

Wahh! Your demons are so awesome! I love the horns and face splitting! Very demonic. :D

Wow, this is really breath-taking!

This... just... I don't know what to say about your gallery. Every picture you look on is so great and flawless and just makes you explode with jealousy and you think "No picture in the world can be better than this." But then you go to the next picture and... well. It's even better.

Xeyon Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2007
OMG I effin love it! Tis wonderful demonic beauty!! ;)
kikuneko Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2007
I love the detail here, and how it is ever so sublity more horrific the longer I examine it.
bluecranberries Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2007
I'm going mad looking at how smooth and clean this is.
Tephers Featured By Owner May 28, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh wow. o_O

That is damn eerie.

*slow clap*
imEmjee Featured By Owner May 27, 2007 really kinda creepy. Cool, but creepy
Meeso-Soup Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2007
I adore the contrast between the pink aura and background and the small amounts of gore here and there (the blood and the semi-realistic heart) beautiful work :)

you must love it when the faces of your characters peel back, I know I do lol
corneille Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2007
aahh this is so icredibly good!
fooltower2 Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2007
oh!!! damn great!!!
like your color and hair detail
purplerose Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2007   Photographer
This is awesosme! I really like the pink. =)
aeon-of-sorrow Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2007
i rea;;y do like your approch to the demons. they're totally un-generic and there's someth really horrific abou tthe fact they're so recognizably human. there's something pretty unnerving about the propect of their lower face splitting open to reveal such a beastial set of perly whites (these and the other anamalistic features, such as the claws make an interestig contrast to the really refined clothing the pair are wearing. indeed, even ther mannerisms seem to counter this side of them, what with the somewhat dainty way they're holding their respective items).

the folds of the skin lining the mouth really give the impression of the skin rearing back and these sharp fold lines cutting htrough it on the right are nicly contrasted by the smooth, blemish-less face on the left. the two grotesque heads counter the _really_ pink setting, though the longer you look at the eleaborate sign, the more aware of the darker details within it you become (e.g. the fact the heart has valves and the wa in which the feathery, wigh like designs transform into webbed membranes).
questionstar Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2007
Oh wow thanks :D I love comments like this hehehe <3
rissbutts Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2007  Student Digital Artist
First off, love the interesting shades of pink and lavender (and yellow) and the brilliant sparklies.

Second off, love his face. Yes, both faces. 'Tis just awesome!

Thirdly, love the blonde hair and tan skin.

Do you ink in OC too? Hoooow do you get it so smooth!?!?!?

(I already know the answer... mad skillz, of course. *cries at you*)
questionstar Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2007
More like, "really high resolution!" hah...
aissatan Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2007  Student Digital Artist
What resolution do you work at?
questionstar Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2007
It varies all the time, and I've been doing much bigger images lately around 3000x pixels or more O_o definitely it reaches the upper limits my computer can handle and I've been working on images in pieces more often now! Heh, I need a faster computer
aissatan Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2007  Student Digital Artist
Gah! Isn't it hard to keep track of the image as a whole when it's that big? Whenever I try to get up there in the resolution, I end up getting lost in the pieces.... and I lose the unity of the image. I guess it just takes mucho practice, huh? I wish I could see your method... have you ever done any tutorials?
questionstar Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2007
Nope! That's what's so great about digital art, you can just zoom out when you want to see the whole thing.

I have a really old tutoral that just covered how I colored a portrait in photoshop... and it's so old I don't even color in photoshop that much anymore. I don't remember the link right now either, sorry :<

Sakura-Akira Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
Honestly, he can break my heart anytime.
I saw your vampire head study as well, the face-splitting really works and it's absolutely gorgeous. (My mind is a tad macabre...) Your skills are seriously amazing though, Hank ftw!
sandalwood01 Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2007   Traditional Artist
Impressive... it's a realy appealling picture. I love the design and the colours, and that burning rose :D

kaleadora Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That is a wonderfully demonic demon! My favorite part is the little wrinkles in his nose when he opens up those lip-flaps. And please tell me those sparklies are a brush or I might just faint dead away on your behalf.
questionstar Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2007
Yup, the sparkles were just just a regular round brush with scatter settings in photoshop 8. :D
ash-2-thunder Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2007
that's really neat.. but if he had to go out in public without "splitting his face" would anyone notice? what if he had to brush his teeth or something?
questionstar Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2007
In the world that ~ru-debega's story takes place in, mythological figures/creatures/demons/monsters/gods are commonplace and just live among humans.
ash-2-thunder Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2007
neat... does she/he post her/his story up here?
ru-debega Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Noo, but I'm working on making it a webcomic. Maybeh. Still needs work. Aysha's musing me along though. XD
ash-2-thunder Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2007
wow, I can't wait to see it!
