I started creating this as old castle in old, dead forest. In the end of the process i decided that Thorgal, character from comic book series by Jean Van Hamme and Grzegorz Rosiński will be right in the place. And basically thats how this project became fan art.
When someone dies, the early people leave the dead on top of the mountains for the life giver's judgment. The life giver offers dead people a chance to live and be with their family again, that's if they've been a good citizen during their past life. But if they're not, The body and soul of the dead will be offered to the beasts.
Personal project, this is a redo of a painting I did three years ago as a commission. View here: browse.deviantart.com/art/Anci…. I used the same basic description with some very slight changes. Amazing to see the improvement. Painting is available for your personal use in a full resolution file, please email email@example.com. Also if you are interested in purchasing the rights to this piece or for any other questions, send me an email .
Original size:8000px by 4942px 300 dpi (yep pretty big and detailed)

note* bg is a matte painting using my own photographs
Edit: removed the burning man and replaced him with an archer instead. also removed the knife with spurting blood on the opponent's neck(lower right most). replaced it with a binoculars instead. guess that's it
P.S. I'm not gonna release any higher resolution than this one. Hope you like it

My entry to Blizzcon 2010 fan art contest. Unfortunately, It didn't make it to the top 3. But it's ok!
Tosh with his band of spectre spooks. While a viking, which BTW, is one my favorite terran units, covers them from behind. I remember staying up late the last night before the deadline. I was painting the whole weekend and my hand was starting to hurt. But it's all good! Hope y'all like it! I really enjoyed working on this.

I can totally understand why my piece didn't make the cut. Look at 2nd and 3rd place! They are freakingly, mind-blowingly EPIC!
As for the first place, I've seen it so many times before - Cute and creative always beats bad ass and detailed. I don't mind that one bit. But if I were one of the judges, I'd simply vote for the ones that make my jaw drop. And that is why I am not that creative. lol.
