As always, you know how to bring the emotional punch in your work. The linework is a bit rougher than I usual see, but along with the nice use of light shades conveys the spiritual nature of the scene. That although Pyrrha is not here in the flesh, her memory and spirit are still guiding Jaune forward.

I particularly like the nice touch of the tears coming from his eyes, for although we didn't see that in the episode, the emotion was there and your take on it has more dramatic impact than what the show conveyed.

Good touch using the sort of "phasing" of Pyrrha's spirit from a more solid to ethereal form, nicely drives home the point that while she's not physically there, Jaune is still holding on to her somehow.

Nice work once again!
I absolutely love what you did with the Gorilla Grimm's face. Just from a brief teaser trailer you went int a lot of detail showing how messed up that Grimm's face was, and you managed to capture details I don't even remember, and I was there at RTX!

The contrast in savagry and scarring of the Grimm with the cute little faunus girl is particularly well done. She's bathed in a warm bright light, highlighting goodness and harmlessness, yet that light shines a bit on the Grimm as well, showing that underneath all that cracked bone and scars there's a hint of goodness too perhaps? Great callback to the classic king kong movies with this scene too, but with a nicer twist in that the Faunus girl and the Grimm appear to be at piece with each other. A scene that brings up more questions for how peaceful it appears.

Nicely done as always.
This piece really ups your presentation of epic moments. This appears to be your widest angle shot to date and the scale it conveys is appropriately epic.

Extreme height and motion are also well conveyed here as you can see Ruby hurtling through the air at what appears to be a high rate of speed, trying to dodge and counter one of the many heads of the hydra.

I particularly like the way you conveyed the scale of the size of the hydra. The destruction and flames its creating down below, coupled with how the heads are easily reaching above the cloud-line definitely convey that this is a monstrous and dangerous creature. Ruby will have her hands full.

Finally Ruby, I like the fusion you performed with Qrow's and her Future Axe-Scythe from your previous future Ruby piece. It's a nice blend of old and new while still conveying pretty awesome power.

All in all, a very epic piece that would look amazing on any wall scroll or poster. Keep up the great work.
A very interesting take on crossing over an existing IP with a Brand new one but it works very well.

Yang as Reaper is an interesting choice. Very often I've seen Ruby being referred to as a "reaper" given her use of the Scythe weapon but I agree ultimately wiith you choice here as the personality would not fit the character. Yang, especially post volume 3, would probably be more prone to sullen/vengeful/angry lashing out behavior and this fits the presentation we've seen of reaper in Overwatch promos. I particularly like the matching glow you gave to her exposed eye and the LEDs embedded in her armor.

For Ruby as Widowmaker that's another interesting choice. But granted, they both use sniper rifles so I kinda see why you picked them as well as their motivation for sort of "going solo" at least as far as Ruby's singular desire to be a huntress vs Widowmaker's desire to never be betrayed.

I noticed a bit heavy use of blurring on the piece here. I see that it appears they're leaping out of something since they appear very high up in the skyline, but I feel it could be toned down just a jot with the edges of the pic.

Otherwise the color and tone work very nice. Got a definite Cyber-Punk Neo-Tokyo vibe going on here and the idea of Ruby and Yang working as cyber-hunters working in some dystopian urban future sounds badass as hell.

Nice job again, looking forward to more.
Very very nice!

The contrasting colors of each piece really POP here, as each piece conveys their own tone through the use of the facial expressions and color theme.

I'm particularly impressed with the layout choices here, each face is laid out side by side, immediately showcasing each pieces main theme (Sadness, Suffering, Resolve, Intrigue).

This could easily pass for a movie poster or some kind of comic series so vivid are each piece's color's showcased nicely against the black background and borders separating each panel. I particularly like how the lens flare effect from Jaune's and Pyrrha's pieces is bisecting the whole piece. It draws the eye in and forces you to look at each panel more closely.

Fantastic work once again. Can't wait to see what else you come up with!

Things will be alright, Cow. Just gotta keep being a good neighbor. America didn't need to be made great again. It was always great.

Tell Deaf and the others to stand proud, even when the world's beating them down.

I hear ya man. I guess just seeing so many of those assholes on TV at various trump rallies spouting all that bile and then seeing him elected kinda triggered my ass. My family fled hate like this from Yugoslavia. It hits a lot closer home to me and affects my ability to maintain a calm discourse.

On the homefront, we're burying our country's greatest murderer alongside our heroes and servants while a clown capers in the highest seat in office.

I'm keeping my head down and doing what I can, but I do want to be there to bury the bastard. Raie my voice and tell our leaders what I think.

Yup yup! As soon as dishwasher started the linework on the goddess piece, I immediately started writing it.

Hrm, well, the first image that came to mind mimics the duality of the piece as well. Essentially Jaune's face would be partially and very visibly augmented. At minimum an eye and parts of his skull would be covered/replaced with cybernetics, illustrating the horrific injuries and the frantic response needed to keep him alive. The unaugmented side would be flat, emotionless. Physically due to the nerve damage and other resultant issues that come with untested dust based augmentation, emotionally due to the personal hell he's been through and is still going through, forever to remain encased in that metal suit that serves as both his weapons and his life support, the endless eternal guardian.
