Icarus by ~Aeleath I love the colors and the sense of ice fighting fire. A great wallpaper for anyone. ( Featured by Casperium )

K. I'm gonna wrap this up quickly because it pains me to say it. When I first saw this piece, I was like woah, this guy's put a lot of heart and soul into this one. I looked at it for like half an hour straight man, visually it's beautiful.

As some of you may know, Aeleath is "Mah boy". We talk a lot, and I had no idea this piece was coming. So I scroll down to look at the comments. Then, it hits me...The name.

Honestly, Icarus? The first person to comment on this critique and tell me the link between this piece and the word "Icarus" gets a llama badge. I personally believe a name like "Falling" or "Gravitational pull towards the earth" would've been more fitting. This is because I get the feeling that the render is being pulled towards me. Do I get the feeling that this resembles a greek god? No.

You might ask, "Well gee Futurology, it's just a name why does it matter?" Names are what emotionally attaches me to the piece. if the name sucks, I won't even look at it. That's just me. I even refuse to look at some of my own art, because of the badly chosen titles. Names are EVERYTHING.

ThIs is a BrillianT piece of woRk, hOwever the LikeLINess of me ever Getting over the whole name thing is very low indeed.

Sorry bud, you killed it. KILLED IT

At first I wasn't too sure about this Wp, but after looking it over a few more times it's finally taken its rightful place as my Macbook's Wp :D In my opinion, the duality if fire and ice is genius.

This absolutely deserved a DD!

Looks like a two on one domination of a being of light and ice overcoming a being of fire. Either way, great compo!

The full, of course. It'd be difficult to make those without being able to save.

Reminds me of Soul Calibur vs. Soul Edge.

However, I'd like it a little more if a grid wasn't reflected in every part of the image.
