The ending that we knew would come
Has finally begun

This painting is meant to be interpreted by the viewer, so feel free to share your thoughts!
I have spent too long on this image on and off throughout the month, so I wanted to get it done and move onto the next recreational piece. I am trying to improve my artwork as I feel that I have hit a bit of a plateau, so do not be afraid to express your opinions honestly. Keep in mind that I can easily spot the difference between real critique and blatant insults, the latter of which will be ignored.
I have shifted my technique and way of handling color, in an attempt to break the common "sticker-like" appearance of my subjects in the foreground. This new method allows me to focus solely on value, which I feel helped me a lot in this piece. I get distracted by color too easily, and the end result can be overwhelming and sometimes even obnoxious to the eye. This painting shifts away from that trend, and I feel that it is more balanced than my previous work.
I tried to avoid tangents, since the character placement was very iffy. I was (for the most part) successful, but I feel that I could have done better in the given time frame.
Multiple columns were added to break the horizontal monotony within the composition, and I think they also lend a lot of story to the piece as well. I'd be happy to share some of the concept behind them, should you ask.
Enough technical silliness, and enjoy the art! Thanks for looking. This makes a pretty neat wallpaper! Don't be afraid to download and use it as such.
