The Demon of Bournesbrooke by Dreamspirit The Demon of Bournesbrooke by Dreamspirit
This piece was completed on July 21st, 2008

This is based off a scene in one of my (yet unfinished) novels, and was a great excuse to work on my digital painting skill set. One of my goals was to have a more dynamic scene and background than I was often prone to render.

You can watch the video of how it was made here on YouTube

Painted in Photoshop CS2

this is beautiful. The demon's snarl, claws... and those fiery ruins especially. I hope you are able to finish your book... I'll keep an eye out for it :]

Thank you so very much. :) I really learned a lot from working on this piece (and the composition for it), and am looking forward to when I'm at the "publishing" stage of my books (which is still a few years off, realistically). Until then, at least I can share some of the art I've created that was inspired by it. :)

Nice. It's interesting how you've used the more resolved portion to pull the focus to the space between the demon and its opponent.

Thanks! :) I'll definitely admit that the composition was a WIP from start to finish since it was based off such a teeny tiny sketch. I'm still not sure if I like that certain sections have a bit of original drawing/"outline" remaining, but I think at the time that was more a type of experimentation to try to pull focus, since at the time I recall I was suffering for longer than I intended from "Characters standing around smiling and not doing anything"-itis. ;)

This looks great! I love how the demon fades into the background.

Thank you! I think around the time I was doing this I was realizing that I wanted to play around with the idea of forms in the background having less contrast than those in the foreground, so this was a fun little experiment. :)
