Radioactive by Hehewuti Radioactive by Hehewuti
To get the full effect, PLEASE play this song: [link] . If you can't stand it, at the very least please let it play through the chorus.

PLEASE COMMENT!
I normally don't beg for feedback, but this is is a very important piece to me and I would really really appreciate hearing your guys' thoughts, reactions, critiques, etc. It doesn't even have to be a long one. Please and thank you ^^;;

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


:faint:

I have been working on this picture....until 3 in the morning every day the past week. It wasn't NEARLY as hard as Crystall Ball, but I am honestly much, much happier with the results.



Crystal Ball was a tender, calm picture, whereas this one is MUCH more intense, and I honestly feel like I'm the only one who can really...feel this picture the way I want, because of how well I know Blake XD;; I hope that's not arrogant...

Anyway, I'm really really happy with how this came out...like REALLY. I might post another WIP gif of this one like I did with CB, but it might not be as impressive. I didn't include her pip-boy because I felt it would sour the image somehow...I'll try explaining it later when I'm not nodding off as I type @_@

I might look at it tomorrow and regret posting it too early, but I guess that's a problem for Future Me.


A HUUUUGE thanks to:

:iconleun91: AGAIN for helping me so much XD;;
and to :iconkuroreiookami: for giving me an EXCELLENT critique early on...I was kind of upset because I had to pretty much redo the entire lineart, but it was TOTALLY worth it and I am very very glad I did. So thank you very much XD Also to :iconlatoeb: for keeping my motivation up, and of course to :iconyeah-10101: whom without, this wouldn't have happened XD He showed me the song. AND TO :iconangeface-maxy: who also helped me with getting the lineart correct ^^;;





I think that's all for now...I'm gonna go pass out, and look forward to a full inbox when I wake up XPPP

Beautiful use of color! The gradation in the background engages the negative space. Love how the green glow is carried through out the piece. Shading is impeccable. The use of perceptive is believable and adds drama to the entire piece.


Only docked for technique because I think the parts way he fades away could be done more gradually, or maybe in a different manner. I say this because since his flesh dissipates, his black line should do something similar. Also, the background is beautiful, but it feels empty somehow. Like, maybe add touches of a horizon line somewhere?

Overall excellent piece, and a beautiful milestone in your artistic journey.

Err, well it's not really a suicide attempt. Just an artistic display of the metaphorical relevance between the character and the song.

No need to apologize! You're actually correct in that she's definitely had those low moments a few times throughout her story, this just was not one of them ^^;;;

my Lone Wanderer just drinks and sleeps around when she hits low points, whilst Blake keeps a distance from people Zaria clings to any contact she can get

Oh, there's plenty of drinking XD sometimes she sleeps w/someone for different reasons, but it's mostly to fulfill some kind of need or another, rather than to get close...XD

I just KNEW I wasn't the only one that thought Imagine Dragons "Radioactive" sound like Fallout! But honestly it sounds a LOT more like FO3.

Really the only thing I'm iffy about, is the sand right at her right elbow. It just seems as if it just cuts off a little to soon... but other than that 10/10!
Reply
:iconhehewuti:
Hehewuti Featured By Owner May 16, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Cheers!

Thanks so much! Yeah, the sand was admittedly pretty half assed, and I think I could have done a better job if I had decided to go without lineart. Some days I go back to see if I can remove the lineart and touch it up a bit, but there's SO much to fix without it I just get immediately demotivated XD

But still, thanks very much!!

No seriously I don't think I made this clear enough with my previous comment. This is FUCKING AWESOME and you should feel FUCKING AWESOME for it.

Also goes well with this and this, I think. The second one is, to my knowledge, supposed to be from the perspective of a fetus whose mother is dying of radiation poisoning from nuclear fallout. It's... kind of horrifying, actually. Not as hard-core as Imagine Dragons though, certainly. I used to have a playlist that was nothing but songs about nuclear holocaust. >__>

Seriously, reading that my toes curled and I actually legitimately squeed. AJKSAGFDSJHSFD THANK YOU SO MUUCCCCHHH Q____Q <butterflies forever>

As for the songs, I really really like the first one...a couple other people have showed me songs they think go with this picture, but yours is definitely the best so far. I love the sound, I love the lyrics...I have a specific playlist just for this character, and that song is going on it XD As for the second, I like the lyrics but the singing style just isn't my flavor, y'know?

I totally understand on the Kate Bush song. She isn't really my style either, that's the only song of her's I enjoy and only because of the subject/lyrics. Hmm.... now I wonder if anyone has made a harder cover of it...

Okay so this has to be one of my fav Fallout fanart pics ever. It just pretty much perfectly portrays that post-apocalyptic feel, with the dark background and gun and Blake being all bruised and fucked up... and the expression, holy shit. I demand more quality art like this, fav'd + watched. YOU BETTER KEEP PUTTING UP STUFF LIKE THIS.

"one of my fav Fallout fanart pics ever"

Dude you have no idea, that sentence made my heart stop for a couple seconds XDD That is such an amazing compliment!! :heart: :heart:

<twiddles thumbs> did you, um, play the song, too? ^^;;;; I feel like it really adds to the emotion of the piece X3


AGH OH MY GOD PRESSURE Q__Q I WILL TRYYY <fret flail>



Ahm...It's not exactly the same quality, but just in case you might be interested, no pressure if you're not (and I really wouldn't blame you), but I am working on a comic with Blake ^^;; It follows the Fallout story line, but focuses on her personal story/experiences/reactions... it's on this account --> :iconblake-jameson: And if you check it out and decide it's not your flavor, that's totally fine! It just seemed like something you might possibly be interested in ^^;;


Thank you so much for all your kind comments Q_Q They really, really made my day.

It's in the water...
It's in the story
It's where you came from
The sons and daughters
In all their glory
It's gonna shape them
And when they clash
And come together
And start rising
Just drink the water
Where you came from...

Hands down the best human figure of Blake you've produced, facial expression, overall balance of the picture, conveyed feeling. But the largest improvement was in the anatomical, I can't find any part of her figure which is out of proportion, in an unlikely position, or that even strikes me as off in a way that i can't nail down.

Very, very well done. =^W^=

The scabs on her arms are realistic-looking as hell <3

I love the perspective and the color choice, very dusty looking~ The full resolution of this piece is a definite must i LOVE looking at all of the little details. You have really outdone yourself on this one! Your hard work shows and i lovelovelovelove it! That death glare she's giving is pretty intense <3 Waaaaaaaah <333333 More please ; w ; i need something this lovely to look at again!

So many late nights...XD I think it was totally worth it though, I'm actually really happy with how it came out X3

That all really means a whole lot to me QwQ I was actually really hoping you'd comment XD;;

I think I might already have an idea for another picture with her... Orz;; I was telling someone else that there was another version of this pic that I got stuck on, I couldn't decide between the two. I'm REALLY really glad I went with this one, though I like the other one enough that I still wanna do something with it, just in a different way, so....there will definitely be more XD;;

Oh hell yeah i couldn't NOT comment. I think you're developing A LOT, like... every picture is a million times better than the previous one. I'm hoping one day you will abandon the "airbrush" shading and be a little bit more bold it it, like strokes of paint. I think you could totally pull it off. Kind of like this: [link] it's like... cell shading only more blended?...IDK LOL I THINK YOU'RE AWSUM OK

So much so that my latest WIP submission is inspired by HOW AMAZING YOU'VE GOTTEN I WANNA BE GOOD AT ART TOO

By far the best piece I have seen from ya! Totally amazing, and props to those who help you along the way and advice you are taking! Incredible what potential we can unlock in ourselves when we take said assistance 8D.

But guuurl....lookit' what you've done! Give yourself a BIG pat on the back ^^.
I think I am most impressed with those wounds Blake has. Very realistic looking (and hopefully you find them just as much fun as I do when trying to create that realistic feel.) The lighting is sublte yet superb, and bright parts really pop with your chosen colors. ......The song choice.....*giant thumbs up*. Love that song X3.

But I totally did have a lot of fun with them and her scars XD I LEARNED THINGS 8D

Thank you so so so much. I really love that song, too, I don't care if it's dub-steppy. I love looking at the picture while it plays XD;
