The Dark Descent by Orionali The Dark Descent by Orionali
Would ya look at those flowers... never drew flowers before, so I apologize in advance. Also, perspective. (!!!)

One history, four destinies. Representing four possible endings to original Amnesia. Also, I totally support that someone would make a mini-mod for the game, which would alter the cell-special ending. Instead of Alexander thanking you, you'd hear a heavy, distorted voice of the Shadow, saying something like: "You have failed me, little trickster. Now face your punishment." Bad. Ass. Alexander has his ending, why steal the spotlight for the second time, Xander? The Shadow needs luv too.

Been drawing this piece for three days straight, about 6 hours each day. Ffff... So, around 18 hours total? Now I can, at least, study calmly for my mid-terms, yush. I just needed to complete this to get Amnesia from my system, ye gods. So here you go, a rather symbolic art piece with all main characters from Amnesia: TDD (Sorry, no Mr. Face or Mr. Tall here ^^;) From Left to right - Agrippa, The Shadow, Alexander and Daniel.

Drawing old people = :iconffffplz: As a result, resorted to the original concept art a lot.

Psst - look at Daniel's shadow. No, not that Shadow. A shadow. Lower case. xD

EDIT: Larger version can be found at my tumblr.

Tools and credits: Wacom, CS5, earl grey tea (lots of it) Evanescence, Linkin Park, Amnesia and Penumbra OST.

I think this is a lovely piece of art. Those flowers were the first flowers you've drawn? It looks like you have drawn flowers for a long time, from the look of them. They look really great! I also like how you drew Daniel, Alexander, Agrippa and the Shadow. The details are great, making it look more realistic. You have alot of talent. I also like the two crying people down to the left and the right. It makes me think of the people Alexander and Daniel tortured. The roses are a nice touch, one of Amnesia's symbols. Daniel's shadow also looks like a wheel (the Breaking Wheel?) at the bottom. I think everything looks good. Agrippa's face looks creepy, like in the game. I love how you made the part of the face where his lower jaw were supposed to be. Alexander look spooky as well, like in the portraits. The version of the Shadow is awesome. Very well done.
Keep up the great work! :thumbsup:

:wow: It's... It's... !!!! Incredible, I like so much the shadow of Daniel >_< I didn't notice until I read it! But... Is there any relation between that monster and Daniel? (I didn't play Justine xD Amnesia was enough scary for many years)

I originally intended to draw the torture devices in the background instead of the crying faces and roses. But then I realized, that I don't know how to draw the brazen bull, so instead I drew the faces of the victims (particularly that girl, who Daniel had killed, Elise Zimmerman) Daniel's shadow is his past. Merciless, menacing and heartless. :heart:

Wow, this is just beautiful!! you made such great use of the textures, and the fog effect really adds so much--even though you created an absolutely stunning atmosphere without it! :D Verrrry creepy and unsettling. The high-contrast black and white works quite well--and even though I know so little about the game--I want to say it all seems quite symbolic and fitting. ^^

I'm running out of adjectives, but it turned out amazing. :heart: :D

Pssst... I can tell you the symbolism behind the picture and, mebbeh, recommend some LPs of Amnesia. The game can be... weird sometimes, also the plot is pretty, how to put this... weird. Let's just say, this game truly deserves its 'M' rating. If you're interested, that is. :love:

You've got me more than a little interested!! :D I mean, even if it's just curiosity at what has taken over your painting regimen hehe. (Edwin must be so jealous! x3)

But seriously--when you showed me that link of it awhile back, it sounded like an incredibly cool concept for a game-- and if it's got you so enthralled, I think it must be worth checking out! :D EXCEPT I'M A HORRIBLE CHICKEN AGHH so yeah maybe linking the playthroughs would be a good idea. ^^ And then I'd love to hear all the symbolism, of course!

Pfft. This game was playthrough-ed to death it seems. But if you ask me, this playthrough is the best for... a beginner. Unlike others, this man completely immerses into the game's atmosphere. *And* unlike others, he's sympathetic to the main character, instead of being disgusted later on. You'll see about what I'm talking later on. :D

Oooooh, don't worry, Edwin. We will come back to you... eventually. xD Amnesia-meme, awaits!

thanks! I started watching it, and I usually work/draw while I'm watching stuff, and I think for this I should be paying full attention... so I'll have to wait for when I have more time. But I liked the beginning!! and the guy's voice is nice (sometimes those playthroughs have such awful voiceovers haha).

*does wizard-like gestures with her hands* He's British after all. Just watch it with lights turned off, HDed and full-screened. I swear, the experience will be unforgettable. That's why I couldn't really sleep well for two weeks after I met Amnesia. It's only now, I became sort of resistant to its scares.

We just need to find a male and a female voice actors, so they'd voice that line together. Somehow, I think the Shadow's voice would be genderless (a la male/female voices in two different channels) xD

The first one is awesome, but GLaDOS is too feminine for the Shadow. I was thinking about the ghost-kid from ME3. Around the 14m mark.

they have the gender right on. But i think of the shadow having an older voice. A younger voice down;t really have the authority you would expect from a godly being
