But then that would have required that that awesome spike/twilight/sunset fight be made smaller. So I'm conflicted, but it's not something so big that it takes away from my enjoyment of the picture. I have to say that I greatly enjoy these silhouettes as well. Good Job!
Also, didn't get to comment earlier, but I also really love your AT drawing too c:
Thanks for that Cerulean, and I do kind of agree with what you said about the one cute picture and it was something that crossed my mind while making this, but the reason why its there is the very reason you pondered. The center drawing was obviously the big one, the whole stinger, I had to make a choice on what to put in the middle and the more over the top picture won out for nothing more than the simple fact that it was the one with the most work put into it. Despite that the idea of this one gentle memory in the center of all this doom and gloom seem like a strong image as well, I kind of wish I could have found a way to fit them both in.
Despite that based off of a comment someone made on my DA post of this, it does carry some effect with its placement.
Anyways I'm glad you liked it and thanks a lot.

I really like the idea to create a whole poster out of small glimpses of events that almost tell a story. The way you drew the princess' silhouettes looks especially effective (Note to self: steal that idea) Totally impressed, when you're not giving people nightmares, you're showing off your epic ideas.
Also, completely unrelated but, did you ever finish watching Madoka? I never got to ask you what you thought of it.
Thanks a lot Ari. And feel free to steal that idea, I'm glad someone is.
As for Madoka, I'm just about done with it and I've been meaning to finish those last few episodes, but so far I think its pretty good.
Its the first time in a long time I've even watched a Magical Girl style anime, little lone been able to sit through it without feeling like a creep. Its a genre that I don't really care for, but I think hate would be too strong a word for it.
The show actually cared about the characters and they weren't there just to look pretty and do stupid poses. They were treated not as girls, but as actual characters. I was kind of expecting the usual bullshit that people who usually watch stuff like that eat up by the handfuls, but it managed to be flashy yet modest and it felt like the people who made it weren't a bunch of creeps who drool over their own moe dolls.
So yeah, I thought it was surprisingly decent and interesting and the animation was nice. My favorite parts are when Madoka just sits down and talks with her mother about growing up. It was a nice scene and character moment. There were still some things about it that did come off as bit squecky, but nothing as bad as the usual crap that gets released.
The animation was nice, the characters were pretty interesting and weren't the usual anime girl stereotypes that have become so annoying. It was an okay little show and I actually do want to see how it ends.
