My entry for Taron's "Natives of the Lifeless Forest" Challenge at CGHub.com. Feel free to check it out if you enjoy participating in contests. There are a lot of really wonderful WIP's posted in the forums there.

The usual. Start to finish in Photoshop. I used this image by *SenshiStock as a ref for the dead guy's feet. [link] No other refs were used for the rest of the painting.

is that... a grub? some sort of worm thing? Am I seeing things? EEEeeeww it's nasty-- but awsome at the same time. lol.

That's what's great about this piece. It's disturbing, but you just can't stop staring. It's so gorgeous! I envy your talent with textures and stuff.

I feel so sad for that poor dead guy... His outfit is way cool. It makes me want to learn more about him! HUge fan of your work.

I feel really sad for the warrior. This is a great piece, very beautiful. I love the detail you put into it and the larvae eating the guy. He looks like a prince ^_^
