So, can he fetch?

Taken from the scene where Neltharion attempts to catch the mana bomb.

And yes, I have thought about removing Rhonin from the image just to see what it looks like. Guess what?  I took out Rhonin.  Does it look better?

I decided to brighten it up too.  

Also, here is the story that this image is related to...

I think it looked better with Rhonin in it.
Just my opinion.
Awesome picture and scene :)

I like the Story so far(even if I'm only on chap 8), and an very epic picture!

Definitely think it looks better without Rhonin-- it puts the focus more on Nell's emotional state and actions, which makes the story feel tighter. In the previous version it was a bit unclear what Rhonin was doing, or how he was relating to Nel or the bomb.

Great use of color. It gives Nel dimensionality, and helps suggest that he's moving fast. It also suggests that he's not fast enough, since the violet ring looks like the fringe of the initial blast pulse. 

Nel also looks great. His musculature and the depth of his chest makes him look powerful, and it's clear he's throwing his incredible strength behind his attempt to grab the bomb... and that it won't be enough.

Perhaps the one thing that bugs me is Nel's eyes. His eyes are looking down and to the left, which is out of frame. Even in the version with Rhonin Nel's not quite looking at Rhonin-- he's really looking offscreen. This makes the focus of Nel's attention a bit unclear.

It might be a bit stronger emotionally and in terms of storytelling if Nel were looking at the bomb. In this version of the image the bomb is the only other character present, and it's ultimately the thing that is driving Nel's behavior and his mental and emotional state here. Having him looking at it should make it more obvious that he's trying to catch the bomb, and it may make his emotional state seem more intense by explicitly connecting his desperation and despair to its cause.

He is actually looking at the bomb.  It's just that the reflection in his eyes is what's making it look a little confusing.

Hmm. If the reflection makes the viewer think he's looking out of frame, doesn't that mean he is looking out of frame?

I dunno, it looks a bit empty without Rhonin. Anyways, it's a nice and intense action shot. It's been a while since I saw one of these from you.

Well, if you still wanna see Rhonin.  He's on my tumblr page.

Netarliargus Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2013
Oh, I've seen him before you updated it. Dunno, maybe keep both versions?

Awesome work; love just how dynamic this looks, and taking out Rhonin improved it a great deal.
