So many have lost their lives...but the Barbarian stands against every opponent. His roar echoes through the planes of his land to reveal his presence.
I still can't believe I painted this. The Diablo contest gave me a big chance to practise and experiment with light and shadow and I wanted to go out of myself an paint as many details as I could. This was a lot of fun to paint and this is definitely a very amazing contest because of all the other immensly beautiful and rich detailed paintings by so many great artists!
I wish everyone, who shares the same dream with me, good luck! Thank you so much for looking <3
So I've been breaking out of my comfort zone a lot this semester. Oil painting, editorial illustration, comics, poster design, my entire media class... A lot of things I'm not used to doing. I've also been working on simplifying my compositions, using more large graphic shapes and better use of space. And while a lot of that hasnt been put up here (yet at least), I definitely feel I'm learning a lot from it. But every now and then, I just need to do something that is completely and entirely....me.
And thus, this painting. Epic fantasy. Golden lighting. Jagged rock formations. Clouds in abundance. Hey, cant knock me for being inconsistent, right? It started out as a thumbnail for a Way of Kings book cover (I ended up doing Mistborn instead), but I finished it out in my free time a little differently.
I will also be submitting this toward the Train Your Brain Contest. c:
Hey everyone. This is my entry for the scribblenauts contest!
Prerequisites of the contest were to draw any DC characters we like in the "scribblenaut style". Also the artwork had to be 2000x550. I admit that this troubled me as i had to abort several ideas due to the fact that they wouldnt look good on the required proportions. However , after working on this piece i feel much more confident on the matter.
So , why Batman and Mr. Freeze.... Even though i was sure that 9 out of 10 entries will feature the legendary Batman , i still couldnt stay away from Gotham City. After all , he is my favourite comic book hero. I choose to draw a duel between him and Mr Freeze , my favourite antagonist in the DC Universe. And ofcourse , i couldnt draw Victor without featuring Nora aswell...
