BURNING COLD - Illusion Art

I CAN finally upload this... :-D
I will have a manga volume released here in Germany soon. It's called "Path of Illusion" and contains 2 short stories. Unfortunately this should only be of interest to those living in Germany...
Information (in German) can be found here:

This illustration is being used as the back cover of the book and I painted it 5 months ago which means it's pretty old already. Hell...all my speedpaints were done after this and I still pretty like it... o_O
The front cover didn't turn out very well, so I won't upload it. :-P

PS 7, approx. 10 hours, no ref.

It's the snow worm, from the Monster Manual. I honestly didn't expect to see one of these today!

I like how you used the smudge tool for movement.

It kinda reminds me of Thor and his battle with the serpant demon he battles.

i've been looking at ur arts for quite sometime... and i like ur style man its so according to my preferences...

this reminds me of the sandworms in Dune... hehe except the planet is not a desert but snowy plains and the worms are not organic but robotic.. cool huh?

Cool! Dune gone winter!
Wohw, ich mag das Grinsen und die Tentakel(?!?). Übrigens finde ich nicht das es dem Eiswurm von D&D ähnelt. Der Eiswurm hat mehr ähnlichkeit mit einer Schlange/Echse als dein Würmchen.
