Looking at Memories Looking at Memories

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Awesome writing! I like how it almost tells a story with varied emotional parts. It is definitely bittersweet at parts, but also has joyful moments like 1:27. Then a brief moment of uncertainty around 1:53 before resolving itself at 2:08.

As for your transitions, I think they fit quite well. Also keep in mind that no song is perfect, so don't beat yourself up over it. Your talent and hard work shows. :)

Columbers responds:

You're spot on with that first bit- this piece quite literally tells an actual story. I actually rushed through this song a little bit because it was a little emotional and I wanted to see what ending would be most fitting. Glad you liked this composition, thanks for reviewing!

I'm uploading a new piece soon that uses the main musical theme of this piece, so make sure to check it out as well!

Oooohhh it's so chill! Me likes. It has a nostalgic feel to it.
After a number of listens (I lost count XD) somehow it still holds my interest. The song adds some interesting contrast to the art. Where the art has a more depressing tone, the song kind of brings a sense of bittersweet denouement. It really puts the listener in the art subject's shoes. Watching one's memories flash and scatter like the sun rays above them.

Absolutely stunning! I really like the buildup to 0:50; it's a great setup for what's to come. The break at 1:33 is also a nice touch. The whole thing really leaves a feeling inspiration for me, especially around 2:24. Coupled with the art it really tells a story. Awesome work.

CloakedSoup responds:

Thanks! :D I've been trying to get better at writing 'film-esque' music (which is the kind of stuff I post here on Newgrounds). I'm highly interested in going into that field. I think I'm starting to finally get somewhere with it.

Terrific work as always. Lovely use of colour, excellent composition, and great placement of characters. The angle you chose is interesting; almost over-the-shoulder. Good use of background characters to show depth. I will admit, I have never played the game, but I know enough about it to know this piece is well done.

Thank you, my friend! I did try to do a sort of 'sneaky look' around the bad guys shoulder, like you are witnessing the end! I'm glad you like, (but shame on you for never playing the game-play it-like right now) ;)

The Beginning The Beginning

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Good stuff. I really like the textured blending you did on the left and right of the subject. Love the hair too. And that fonts, mmmm! I have a thing for fonts and typography (don't tell anyone).

Composition-wise everything works well. Cleverly placed logo at the top left where the eye tends to start in a picture for many cultures. Then moves to the right, meeting with the art, and finally the title on the right. I find it interesting how you gave the title a little more space between the art. Not so much space to detach itself from the rest of the picture, but not too little to make the whole picture seem crowded. I could go on but I've ranted enough. Good job.

NilesCD responds:

(secret is safe) I try to concentrate a lot on font work with this sort of thing, I get really annoyed with certain works because it's ALWAYS the lack of experimenting with typography, I think it can make or break your work. But I'm glad you can see it all works out all together, I was playing around with it too much and simply settled for that -It almost defeated me! I love space, it forces people to look around a piece (so frigging mean) so they get a full understanding of what they're looking at (or not, ha!) But thank you for your detailed feedback!

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Very emotional piece. The expression in the face really captures the struggle of pain. That isn't an easy thing to do. The eyebrows especially show a small amount of restraint, as if the subject is vainly trying to hold it in. Awesome job.
