Probably the most complex painting I've ever done, and definetly one of the most difficult! Was still fun though [:
(note to self; do more environment practice)

Wouldn't a bow bend more if pulled taught like that?

Yeah, I love skyrim! This is based on the Icecrown expansion from World Of Warcraft though.

And how much time do you spend on painting like this one?

You're a big inspiration... Please how did you learn so much about color theory? And how long have you been working and studying to reach this level? I mean how many hours per day? This is insane...

thank you! I learnt color theory from youtube tutorials and photo studies. I believe you found the answer to this somewhere else, but like 8 hours of solid work a day, more or less (:

Oh thank you... You are truly an inspiration... and 8 hours/day impressive....

I saw your tutorial on skin colors.. One of the best that I've seen...

I feel like their poses are a bit stiff but apart from that it just looks gorgeous :heart: Damn I can barely imagine how long this must have taken :D I probably would have killed myself three times during the process lmaoo XD

Really cool piece! Very nice and detailed, especially in their armour and faces. The gems in there look really cool and actually seem to give off light! I also really like the weapons and the background may not be extremely detailed, but it fits the piece and it looks amazing as well ^^

I love the feel of Northrend in this piece. Icecrown is foreboding back there with all the other undead fiends lumbering closer... This is inspiring.
