A Prayer to the Gods by BlackTalonArts A Prayer to the Gods by BlackTalonArts
Once again when I get time these days I like playing around with composition and light and if I'm lucky something comes of it (I'm a sucker for contrast).  yep, it's another male figure but damn...was quite happy with how he turned out.

I've neglected one of my new fav writers (hell I've neglected a lot of you :()...the talented Billy Shears who always finds a way to bring life to my art through the written word.  So I dedicate this image to him and his strength and beauty through words. 

Happy Monday to you all!

Wow, this is one is beautiful. The way he bends his head holds some kind of hidden tension, like he can snap any moment. Yet he's calm and quiet. Beautifully done.

he is perfect. It's difficult to see whether it is a photo or a render

Gorgeous! I love the contrast too! It tells a story in black and white :) some of my favorite images are grayscale :) gives the imagination more time to play ;)

Holly crap, this is photorealistic. Maybe my brother, who has a very critical eye, could spot a telling detail that reveals it's 3D origins, but I can't. It almost goes without saying that the lighting is brilliant. Another stunning work, Mel.

Solid dude. I like the volume on the hand prints, just like a real paint or mud. Well done.

There is a really dry leather-like look to the skin that is something different but very appealing.
Looking at the textures on the clothing, weapon and hair, nothing seems to have a strong
specularity to it but it doesn't make the image look flat. There is a lot of variation in the greys
that keep the image looking interesting, highly detailed. How you did the backlighting with the
hair is exceptional, though! Perfectly executed!
