Moths by `blackeri is a perfect blend of realism and fantasy. The amount of detail put into the moths is astonishing. The feeling of breaking out of your shell and metamorphosis, plays into this deviation. It's spectacular to look at!

This artwork was done for a "20 steps to extreme realism" workshop done for ImagineFX issue 40.
Nothing really too surprising about the concept - the point was to push the realism as far as I could.

Done in Photoshop CS. Video making-of can be seen on the issue 40's DVD. :-)

Upon his knees, the arrow still in his left shoulder he gazed up at her with a wondrous awe.

For three hours Devin had fought off the vile un-dead hordes of the Red King. Alone he defended the guardian of the woods as her metamorphasis reached its conclusion.

It was not going well for the young night.

Three arrows had pierced his armor and his blood drew in even more of the un-dead masses...

Then, with a great CRACK! and a flash of white light she emerged from the chrysalis.

Her very life enhancing nature Incinerated the beasts in an instant.

She was radiant and a peaceful, soothing calm ebbed off of her as she floated weightlessly, inches off of the forest floor.
