Weather the Storm by LadyDistort Weather the Storm by LadyDistort
Things have been out of place for me, this feeling of being alone stranded in the middle of a downpour with no shelter. I've been searching for answers so long that it confused me to no end once I realized who I really was... But now I don't have to face the gale alone.

Don't steal this... this means a lot to me and I worked hard on it.

first i must start with how much impact this drawing has on me personaly. it can come because i am closer to you then others that wirte a comment. surely its an master piece, resulting into that i am actualy tearing because of this nice piece of art work.i will try to judge this piec with out emotions so herebeing (i hope i can emotions out of it).as vision and originality know that it desirves a 5 star. anything less would be an insult, the drawing itself is one, there are no things that are out of placed and its drawn in tcorrectly to what emotion is behind it. next is the technique that iss totaly distort, you perfected your own technique since i sw your drawins so much that i think this is almost your top in improving this style of drawing. altrough yo alwats can improve those little things. but they aren't spoiling the overal work.

conclusion: a verry wel drawing that gives the right signal and the right emotion.

Seeing this is my only day with a premium membership, this was the first deviation I was after. I hope if can give it some bit of justice.
I'll start with the art design itself. The character designs, the proportions, the animations, and the setting is perfect. But that's just scratching the surface. The details are astounding After downloading this and viewing it at 20000x 9000 pixels I still see shading and textures. The atmosphere is tremendous. You accurately shaded the lighting effects of the rain falling, which is the most difficult to do, and the effect of rain on Distort's wing as well as the rain falling from her horns like tears dropping down her face are immaculate. You literally feel like you're there, as the wind howls, rain falls, and people move in to protect you from the gale. You can put yourself in their shoes, and it's a wonder to behold.
The backgrounds are all there as well. The grass moving gives us a sense of the wind whistling through the prarie and the sky looks great as well. The only potential problem I could see with your technique is that the light of the moon wouldn't normally be seen through clouds dark enough to cause a storm like that. But physics aren't important if the end result is awesome.

This picture feels like a snapshot from an amazing award winning film or a spectacular anime. It's poetic, provoking. But it's more than that. This drawing feels like a perfect surge of emotion that is extremely tangible and makes me feel sad, pain, hope, and love, which is what a great piece of art should do. The very real story behind this and who these people might symbolize is even more entrancing. I find this to be one of your best works, and I give it five stars for all of the above.

If you need to talk to somebody don't be afraid to note me. My Grandfather is a preacher and I can ask him about some of your questions.

I love the art. It is full of emotion.
