The Bitter Taste... by wikkedvenus The Bitter Taste... by wikkedvenus
It's finally done!!!

I've been working on this piece for way too long, but man was it a learning experience. I still have so much to learn about photoshop as well as colour and light theory.. but I have had many helpful pointers from peers (special thanks to lynryn!). I have a better idea now of how to proceed when approaching my next work. There is much more refinement and changes I could do but I feel it would be more benifical to move onto the next thing. I am also moving the WIPs to my scraps.

As for the subject matter, I know this is totally non-canon, it's more of a hypothetical, "what if" idea, how could the story be different?

*sigh of relief* :D

It doesn't feel quite finished yet, but hey, it looks amazing as it is.

There's one thing I'm wondering though, what's the "what if" idea behind this picture? Am I missing something?

the more I think about it, the more I come to the thought that Godot is Diego's in essence, his darker half. Obsessed with revenge, putting the blame on others, and from what I've seen, alot more cold.

love how you did this. Its like two sides of the same coin.

This looks simply beautiful~

Really caught my eye, and it's always good to see fan art of Diego and Godot. Sweet how he's holding Mia's magatama too.

Gorgeous. How experienced are you with digital painting? I'm trying to learn and, well, I'd like some reasons to feel optimistic. XD;
