I Am Hate by AbalamAnderson
Striking piece. You first see an image of this humongous beast, with flames jutting from its mouth. The flames can be traced as sort of a handrail to the obscured figure beneath, emphasized even more by the bright flames sparking from his chest. The interesting part is that the flame looks like it's burning the figure, not coming from him. I find this holds true to the real nature of hate/anger- “Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.” -Mark Twain
So excellent placement of visual elements.

The beast is done well, especially the smoky shading on it, but lacks that originality of interpretation. It looks like a giant bat-fiend, the like of which may be found here: upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia… or here: fav.me/d5fary0 (just for example)
If you could find a method of symbolically representing hate in some way which the viewers do not think of immediately, it would give the creative edge on this piece more sharpness.

I appreciate the smokiness and hazy effects where you used them. However, because the smoke is on the crisper side of abstract, it makes the blob-like effects you used for the fires seem odd or out of place. To fix it, perhaps make the fire's edges more defined and energetic, going straight up and ending in points. If the fire was intended to appear more as lava spews, you could use some some speckles of yellow, drips, and a more liquid appearance to the edges of the spews. Definitely keep the embers in the background though. It's a great touch.

The piece screams power. It is very dramatic and dynamic- the beast leaping/arching over the body of its victim, the victim leaning back in agony as the flames overtake him- a very clear "punch" to its viewers, it gives the message straight.

Overall, a good piece with room for improvement. You definitely have the director's eye you would need to make such a piece's scenery come together. Good work. :)
