My Udon Reject by thelaserhawk My Udon Reject by thelaserhawk
"Rising and Setting Sun" - featuring Hsien Ko and Bishamon.

It's amazing how much you can hate a piece of art that you were so excited about only a week ago. That's the case with this image right here. It will forever stand as a reminder of my rejection and the long hours I spent to earn it. But the bright side is that since it didn't win the contest and make it into the art book, you get to see it for free.

I think it looks good! I've noticed that a lot of the submissions for this project I've seen on dA that didn't make it feature Hsien-Ko...Maybe Udon has something against her? :P

Anyway, I think the composition is really cool. I like how it's an aerial view of Bishamon as Hsien-Ko is descending down to attack him. I can imagine how difficult it is to pull of the perspective/distance/right look from that angle, but it all looks great! I think the lighting helps a lot to, in how it is brightest on Bishamon, Hsien-Ko's target, and how it's darker all around him to frame him/the action about to take place.

I think Bishamon's ghosties look great! They look nice and wispy and they have good sense of motion and movement to them.

Very cool! :+fav:

Yes, it can happen with artists like ourselves.

The peice we hate the most turns out the be the most popular.

Such as Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite is one he really hated and it became the most popular peice he ever wrote.

Dude, don't feel too bad. There were a LOT of artists I follow on dA who got rejected. If misery loves company, you're in good standing. Definitely one of the more interesting picture I've seen just from composition. Not my favorite characters in the game, but I like it. :thumbsup:

Thanks, d3pthcharge12. It has ironically been a bit soothing to see some of my fellow rejects... some of them are definitely better than my picture.

Well, I wouldn't have put it in those terms exactly, but suffice it said the standards were probably pretty darn high, and you shouldn't beat yourself up for your best effort, which was definitely one of your better pieces that I'm aware of.

I suck at contests. Therefore I don't bother entering them any more XD

Though is the reason for you hating this piece because of whoever it was running the contest didn't include it in their book?

From the moment I caught sight of your work at Drunkduck, you have stood and shall continue to stand as one of my most admired artists. The style and quality of your work is absolutely beautiful.

Thanks, caat. It's very kind of you to say that.

Yeah, the reason I'll always look at this picture with a bit of shame it the fact that it didn't make it in the book. I'm sure that one or two year from now I'll be able to see what was wrong with it, but I'll still regret spending so much time on it.
