Suggester Comments: "They spent 7 months painting this artwork as well and it's really paid off. The amount of details in this piece is just absolutely incredible." ( Suggested by EternaLegend and Featured by alltheoriginalnames )

A lot of work has come into this and it has paid off. The detail of things are wonderful. The work put into this is fantastic and deep. It looks like it's right of the board for this. They have done a good job...and they have plenty of work to show for it. The time they've put into this is astounding! The armor looks incredibly real, and the necromorph is as scary as anything. Even the background is up to par with the rest of this picture.
To put it bluntly. This is the best painting I've ever seen here.

The Artist thought this was FAIR
29 out of 36 deviants thought this was fair.

Vision- This is absolutely gorgeous. The attention to detail in both characters and background is stunning and action-packed. The shading and lighting are done extremely well- Despite that Isaac may realistically appear darker (due to the very bright explosion behind him and minimal light from the laser/visor) it'd be too much of a shame to miss out on all of his armors details!

Originality- While I feel like I've seen action poses like this many times before, it's still very dynamic and well-done. It's the same with old cliches... The reason they're around so much is because they look good! I imagine he's in an anti-gravity field, very cool.

Technique- Again, with the details. I'll never be able to full grasp how some people can just control paints so well to create such crisp pieces of art. The colors are fantastic, and everything is done with such precision that again, I can't stress how much it amazes me how one can control paint so well! I also like the texture from the canvas, it gives it a special bit of personality.

Impact- It's a pieced based off of a very well-known and well-loved game. While that has a separate impact of it's own, just the quality of the artwork itself, the intense action, and the love that obviously went into this piece speaks a lot. I'm sure the same goes into the rest of your work, all which probably have just as much impact!

Rule in Dead space 1-2 is always upgrade plasma cutter and don't buy any weapon unless its pulse rifle or line gun
But upgrade your rig too ! its important for your health !
