Why waste time reproducing an existing piece when you just take aspects of it and make your OWN art?

This isn't my OWN art, I do mention that it's a reproduction. And this is for me one of the best training.

Whoops.
Meant to say that you could just take aspects of it and make it your own art.
Sorry for the confusion, I was just wondering as to why you would reproduce a piece like that.

Yep you're right. But when I painted it, I wasn't good enough to change a lot. It was just for practice (I painted other reproduction after that one and never uploaded them).

It is good practice for tone/lighting etc? Or just for fun?
When I was younger I used to find a cool drawing and then make my own reproduction of it.Is that kind of what you're doing?

That's what I'm doing. It's fun and you learn a lot of things about tone, lighting, textures, etc...

A Minotaur is traditionally half man half bull, or some combination there of.
A Satyr is traditionally half man half goat :D

Its very good, im an art critic so i have to say what u could improove to make it better:P higher contrast in dark and light in the focus of the painting and a higher contrast between the focus of the painting and the background would make it look much more powerfull :P

Hum I don't remember, the best thing to do is to go to Diablo III official website or Blizzard's one and to search. He's well-known and kicks ass ! :P

lol oui pas toujours facile de trouver les stocks qu'on veut...

Concernant le minotaure, ou mes autres créas d'ailleurs, je n'autorise aucune modification désolé ! Sinon après je dois en discuter à chaque fois au risque de voir mes travaux réutilisés.. enfin bref.

Merci et bonne chance ;)

Curious if you'd submitted this image to a Facebook/Myspace game called Elven Blood. I'm investigated a series of art thefts by the developers. Just wondering if you were amongst their victims.

If you're interested in seeing if you can ID more artist's work: [link]

Hello, thank you for your comment about art thefts. I looked at your screenshot and there is no doubt : it's a scandalous theft. But I'm not the victim because "my minotaur" is a copy of a Diablo 3 concept art so the victim is the concept artist because it's the original picture used in their game.
Elven Blood stole Blizzard studios... idiots...

I tried to ID other creatures but I failed.

Your project is a very good thing, just keep it up ! We need more people like you to protect our work. :)

It is still your work though. It may essentially be "fan art" but it's still your efforts. The developers have actually done quite a bit worse. They've taken material directly from large companies. I've already contacted Wizards of the Coast about their drow/spider queen/balor related stuff. They've also taken an image from Castlevania and another game...Assassin's Creed, I think it was called. Ubisoft game...someone else had a piece that they did for Playstation...God of War 2. They took that as well.

:) It's ok. You can also help by distributing the links and seeing if anyone else might know. That's how many of the artists I've contacted, were found.
