Good pose, they have a very proud stance. I like a lot the choice of colours in this one, they really set the mood, and the iridiscent texture on the girl is awesome.

I have to say I like your style. I'm assuming you used Poser on this(?). You have talent. You have actually gotten the characters to not look like stick dolls that have been put in position. Now, onto expressions. I would have to say that the guy is looking sort of on the menacing side. I'm afraid he is going to turn on the woman. Great piece of art, all in all. Eric Wadley
replies: "The figures are Poser figures. The whole scene was textured and rendered in Bryce. That's a good observation on the man's expression. My intent was to give him a look of anger (over the fact that they are the last Atlantians alive.) The woman is supposed to look peaceful and content (savoring the moment they have.) It's probably way too subtle, but I was trying to play a bit with the themes of pessimism and optimism in their expressions. Thanks for your feedback!"

A forgoten race, a forgoten place. All the makings of an epic story.
The man is not looking at her that way, he is looking at the man that caused the ruination of his people. The priest who called down the wrath of the gods on the men who built the forsaken machines.
This pic is another where every element fits. There is nothing I can see wrong. The poses fit the viewpoint, the shadows all match. Another of the few perfects our there.

Wow I love the way that you made her skin translusent (it's supposed to be transluscient right, cause if it's not my mistake.) I also love their hair it's so foreign and strange, it reminds me a little of the way that Chinese men used to wear their hair a long time ago. (I don;t know the date so I will not embarrass myself by making an estimation that will turn out to be wrong.) Eric Wadley
replies: "You are right, both about her skin being translucent, and the inspiration behind the unusual hairstyle. I appreciate your insights about this image. Thanks!"

I always have to leave a comment on pictures I find of couples - not that I'm a romantic, but more that I'm often impressed with how other artists can put two figures together and have them look cohesive. They really do look like a couple, and the pose is so natural that it's very, very convincing. I'm starting to not make sense today. I'll leave off with - I think this is outstanding work, and the emotions portrayed here are very profound. It really makes me think - what would I do, if all I knew were destroyed? If there were only one other that I could turn to - and could I even put up with them? ^-^ Eric Wadley
replies: "Thanks for the comments on this work (and many of my others as well). I especially appreciate a personal comment like you given here. It makes me feel connected with the feelings of you (the visitor) as you are checking out my work. I can't think of a more wonderful gift! Thank you!"

A follow up on the hair. Just for interest: if anything the Atlanteans would be Greek or from Greek influence--so most likely they would not have that hair style. I like the broken columns--are you demonstrating the quake before the destruction [supposively an earthquake of volcano]? If so, I like it because the couple know they will die so they have their last moment of love together.
Anyways, this picture is great because it leaves so much speculation of what is really happening [see above, lol]. That is my opinion.
