Frenemy by CalamityChemist Frenemy by CalamityChemist
Keep your friends close, your enemies closer, and your frenemies away.

This picture is so blinding compared to my usual work, haha.

You can't really expect to view the world critically through your art, until you've viewed yourself critically through it. That's what this picture is; a little metaphorical reflection + some honest criticism of myself. I was struck by the idea last night and decided to go for it!

It was nice to go back to one of my older drawing styles, and to play with a totally different color palette than my normal stuff. <3 I hope that you enjoy it!

This is totally awesome! I like the bright, but not too overpowering colors and the void eyes, along with the symbolism I get from it. Lovely work! :D

However, I don't know how I'd draw what I didn't like. It'd be pretty ugly. Plus, I don't know what I'd consider as "too far"... ^^;

Me gusta!! I think the wolf is my favorite part of this whole piece, it's so relevant. Like I know for a fact there are people in this world exactly like that wolf (if that makes any sense) but I guess I see realness in this piece and I like it a lot. Good form :iconmonocleplz:

At long last, finally something up on the front page that's actually art! Feels like it's been a long time. Great concept, coloring, and the execution is flawless. I love the message, it's humorous and chilling at the same time. Bravo!

Thanks very much, man! I'm happy you like how it turned out. I was hoping to catch both a little bit of humor and a little bit of unsettling with this one.

Love this concept, especially the symbolism of the wolf and the doe and the cute-but-creepy bloodstained heart. I love everything about this picture, and it's one of the best things I've seen on dA's front page in a while. :)
