ANUBIS by el-grimlock ANUBIS by el-grimlock
Art for Myths and Legends (TCG), 2004.

When I made this image, i found only representations with traditional cloth robes, the typical skirt, and of course the version of the stargate was a big influence.
I did a mixed version, it is not so mechanical like that movie anubis, and tried to give some focus of attention:

1- The metal shield around the hips,
2-The 3 gems bigs, colored and visible, in 2 hands and the chest,
and ambient colors (blue-green) in part by nostalgia for the game Soul Reaver.

The sky is a resource spiral that I there for the first time and liked it enough, the two obelisks provide additional stability to the composition.

I made many preliminary sketches before choosing these items.

Arte para Mitos y Leyendas, 2004.


Cuando hice esta imagen solo habian representaciones muy tradicionales, con ropas de tela, el tipico Faldellin o faldon, y por su puesto la version de stargate fue una gran influencia.
Yo hice una mezcla de ambos, ya que no es tan mecanico como el de esa pelicula, y traté de dar con algunos focos de atencion,

La proteccion metalica alrededor de las caderas,
Las 3 gemas enormes y visibles: pecho y manos,
y los colores en parte por nostalgia del juego Soul Reaver.

El cielo en espiral es un recurso que hice alli por primera vez y me gusto bastante, los dos obeliscos dan una estabilidad adicional a la composicion.

Hice muchos bocetos previos antes de escoger estos elementos.

I don't know if you know this, but I think your artwork was used
by deathcore band 'Manhattan Project' for the cover of their album 'Birth of the Modern Age'.

Wow! I can honestly say that you are one of my favorite artists ever. Your style of shading really brings each peice to life. I truly wish you did tattoo art. I especially love the egyptian peices that you have completed. Please keep up the excellent work!


ps: Wouldn't it be nice to see an artists rendering of the ENTIRE Egyptian Pantheon in battle? Maybe even include some imagery from popular myths... Just food for thought. Take care!

Pretty sure your pieces remind me of League of Legends Champions. This one reminds me of Nasus, your ARES one of Pantheon, and your werewolf warrior of Warwick. Jus' sayin'.
