Let the light in. by Muckamuck Let the light in. by Muckamuck
"I want to bring freedom to this world. I want to break the chains of oppression. Our world's become an unlit room and a shelter for the shadows...I want to let the light in." -Beetle Gray

Man, I haven't done any digital art pieces for a while. That's bad. I need to practice more. YAARRGH! :shakefist:

Anyways, this is Beetle Gray who is the main protagonist in my wannabe-manga, BERZERK's Song. I was planning to do a simple profile at first, but then I turned it into this sort of silhouette picture with bad lighting. XO I like how it turned out though, especially since this is the first pic I've done with lighting behind the main subject. I was listening to a good hour of music from The Pillows (RIDE ON SHOOTIN' STAAAAAR!) while I did this, so it helped a lot. :D

Originally, I had done some lighting on Beetle's face, but I cleared out most of it because there was kind of an embossed effect with the color and the black right next to it, so it was a no go. You can also notice how strangely shaped his head is. His hair is so bad... T_T

Me and my lousy lighting effects. ^_^

THis is awesome. I love how the guy is silhouetted, seemingly, with the little touches of light. The background is simplistic yet beautiful, and I love the use of green in it. :3 Great work!
