Rain by OmeN2501 Rain by OmeN2501
Another book cover for publisher "Fabryka Slow". Story behind it is pretty simple, they want something form her, she cannot let them have it... no matter the cost

Background is kinda mattepainting, character thou is entirely painted by me. Few references used, nothing significant thou

You can catch some closeups here: [link]

This image was the tipping point for me.  I invested in a Wacom tablet and have taken up digital artistry.  In years to come I hope to be 1/2 as great at painting as this.  Spectacular.

I just stumbled on this because someone used it as a background image to a song on YouTube, and I Googled "yellow raincoat grenade" to find the original, and now that I am, I must say, I am stunned! This is absolutely gorgeous, and I would love to know what the book is, because this image would definitely make me want to pick up the book and read it, which is, of course, exactly what a book cover is supposed to do, so I would say job well done!

men i love this paint, the rain,the expresion from the girl like he dosent care anymore but with decision on his eyes i fucking love it i have this picture on  wallpaper on my notebook like 1 year now :P
Virtuxa Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Damn, I've seen this picture circling around the internet in smaller sizes, so even though I really liked it right away, it's only now that I notice she's already pulled the plug and that it isn't a matter of if she dies, but wether the bullets or the grenade'll get her first.

That is heartwrenching man. Insanely well done, the way you tell so much of a story in one piece.
PensiveAlex Featured By Owner May 20, 2016
Also depends on the type of grenade - some require a solid strike to detonate or to start the timer, removing the pin 'primes' the device, whilst holding down the handle acts as a deadman-switch.  If she let go she'd have 7-12 seconds depending on the grenade, in this case it would appear it would detonate near instantly.

It's part of the tension in this Epic piece.  They have guns trained on her (see the laser lights), but if they shoot her the grenade drops and they all die.  It leaves the viewer's mind reeling with questions on how it resolves.  Not a new concept by any means, but the execution here is superb.
McRae4Ever Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2015
Uhh, you do know that removing the pin of the grenade doesn't activate the explosion right?
Virtuxa Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2015  Student Digital Artist
No, I did not.
Hyenax Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
The grenade would only activate if she took her index finger off the grenade, as this causes the "handle" to spring off.

What you said is still relevant and I totally agree, as pulling the pin is a risky move regardless :)
