Is it scary?
Sharp, pointy teeth are always scary.
So you clearly didn't choose poorly there. This piece would be scary to many people.
The composition works. Especially with the profiled man's mouth pointing you to the center of the piece.
I Really like the addition of the birds for some reason I can't define as I usually cannot stand what I call "M" birds in paintings. Maybe it's
because people throw them into peaceful landscapes which to me, distract from the landscape. So, it's possible that what is normally used in a
peaceful setting but thrown into this angry, angry scene is what I like.
The emotions of wild rage and carnage definitely flow though this and any time you pick up emotion in a piece, you've done something right. The green
and the red work their complementary magic here as well.
The bottom part could use some work. Where the man's hair meets the other man's neck is awkward. I know you risk super mud from trying to make that
better. If you are indicating that is a decapitated head on the floor, which I believe you are, it could still use a little more at the neck.
As mentioned before, the green coupled with the red works very well. Perhaps green in the bottom panel would unify things a bit more. A touch greener
on the floor? Maybe greenish/dyed hair to both solve the hair issue and bring more green into the piece?
Either way, keep it up! I love seeing art that is unsettling or goes against "normal" art tropes.
