I love the juxtaposition of vertical and diagonaly lines. Gives the feeling that the character is rising out of that fiery world without showing any movement. The lines reinforce the powerful look and pose. Beautiful!
Woah, dA should be ashamed of itself. They view, squeal, fav, and never comment. This is a really amazing piece of work. The red colour scheme works in an excellent way, bringing out the figure of the character and creating a very dynamic composition. The buildings in the background, with all these architectural edges, remind me of those large German gothic era cathedrals, and the way the "rubble pedestral" on which the character stands is leaning gives the picture a sense of movement and makes it even more interesting.
