Stiff by Taly5 Stiff by Taly5
Commission for :iconkiyesucks: of his character Steffan.

Named Steffan because his mother's last word was "stiff" ( he wouldn't kick up a fuss when born), this guy is not your usual hero. Fantasy story based on reader's choice , Tides of Twilight
is an amazing interactive story which you can read here :

Hello there from #ProjectComment + #FeedbackFrenzy! :wave:

Sorry I wasn't there when you made it to that last chat event - we did have a bot in there keeping a transcript though (so that we can post the relevant discussion on each deviation).
<TheLoneBadWolf> Oooh!! I love it!!
<CrypticManifestation> very nice, I like the organic pose
<Taly5> thank you both!
<CrypticManifestation> very fluid and dramatic, I also like how the the contras between the background and the sky
<MilaineSummerset> yussa, this denies the title when not knowing the character is named stiff :)
<Taly5> haha - never thought of that :D
<MilaineSummerset> it's very lively and excellently put into motion :)
<CrypticManifestation> but I find myself wishing there was a bit more blue in the image, maybe reflected in the floor or the walls of the stadium
<TheLoneBadWolf> I love the weapon!! - A bit blue would have been nice too
<Taly5> I see your point
<MilaineSummerset> or just as well give the sky a bit of halftone yellowy for overall effect, also an option
<Taly5> I tried it - but the commissioner said he wanted plain day - and the yellow halftone made it look like evening
<TheLoneBadWolf> Yeah understandable. Commissioners can be picky
<CrypticManifestation> gotcha
<MilaineSummerset> well then, question of taste also
<Taly5> well I know the background isn't much, it was my first try at a more uh... realistic one? - not the clouds though ^^
<TheLoneBadWolf> Well it was very good
<MilaineSummerset> i like it, it also has a dramatically looming perspective bend to it :) - kind of like a fisheye lens
<TheLoneBadWolf> Oui I agree
<Taly5> wish I knew what that was -.-
<MilaineSummerset> fisheye lens?
<CrypticManifestation> the bg is well done, varying the focus on it a bit more to differentiate the background from the main character would have brought more attention to the focus point
<Taly5> yes
<MilaineSummerset> you seen the effect in inumerable documentaries and stuff i daresay
<Taly5> I bet I did but since I have no idea about cameras and stuff ...
<MilaineSummerset> it's that strangely stretched out picture with a wide angle of view, circularly extending the area the camera picks up - at the cost of a distortion of the flat view towards a bulged ...bubble thingie - or a fish eye, if one wants to call it that way
<Taly5> aah! gotcha! - thanks for explaining :)
<MilaineSummerset> yw :)
We've been very busy putting together the Before & After Competition. It's all about using feedback (like this) on an old deviation to create a new one! If it sounds interesting, be sure to check it out!

That's right! I totally forgot that I dropped back in! That was a good conversation, it was nice to see that people were still hanging out after the main event.

No!! Thank YOU! I'm eagerly working on the next chapter of my story due to wanting to show off this amazing art ; o ;

This is Stiff in his complete entirety, no joke. You were totally spot on!

Again, thank you

I just finished reading it. All of it. And it's brilliant! Like reading a FF game. Can't wait to see what happens next! It's unfair though, I wanna know what happens if you chose the other paths! Well, to sum it up... I just love it! :D
