I don’t normally post my fan-art here but I spent three days working on this damn thing and I like the outcome enough that I’m posting it. :|
Here is a link over to where I posted it on dA, just for the hell of it.
I get the impression that 6 stays in his corner, a lot. Sometimes, or rather, quite frequently, it can be very dark. He has one candle back there based on what I can see in screenshots, and candles only provide so much light, especially in the clock tower. I tried to capture that, and I also tried to capture the height of his space and the scale of the wall-drawings space. As well as a sort of dark, unsure atmosphere that seems to go hand-in-hand with 6. What is he looking at with such a nervous expression? You figure it out. c:
And here is the part where I ramble a bit about the background / composition.
If you look at 6’s wall of drawings there are quite a few different drawings of “the Source” in addition to the one that appears to be a diagram of the front of the talisman / the illustration from the alchemy book the twins found. It’s kinda fun trying to figure out what angles he was trying to pull off in some of them. And one or two of them even looked like the talisman in the act of extending those green energy-tendrils, interestingly. But that’s just my own interpretation.
That candle’s as good as it’s going to get. I don’t mind the flame as much - in fact I rather like how it came out - but the candle itself is skldfjslfjs. I am done fucking around with it.
In addition to being a sort of lighting challenge, I also tried a slightly different perspective than what I usually work with. Not sure if I managed to pull either of them off.
