IF ...shadows

From the shadows of World War I came one of the more shadowy figures to cloud the European continent in centuries. Adolf Hitler brought death, hatred, evil and a second World War to fruition, and darkened Earth for the duration.

  1. Das Fürher looks appropriately furious. This is a stunning image, Richard. You've really nailed his malevolent nature. He casted a dark shadow over the German people for decades after his suicidal demise. The blood splatter is an especially nice touch – as is his tiny, pointed ear. Ausgezeichnet!

  2. Exquisite interpretation of a sinister, egotistical madman born from the most unimaginably deep, dark shadows!

  3. This is a very powerful piece. The force of the black cloud/shadow is very effective and the blood spatter is inspired. Those are very angry eyes.

  4. Well done and very scary. I feel the force of Hitler's heavy darkness pointed outward. I am glad he gone back into the shadows.
