Duel of the Warlocks by Ilacha Duel of the Warlocks by Ilacha
In the beginning I wanted to show and old and fragile sorcerer while

measering his power with another magician. That´s why he looks hounded in

this direction and gets his staff back with his magical power. But when I

made the sketch I had to much and I desired for a stronger body. The

movement was very powerful and didn´t fit for an old man. So I made him

younger and I realised that I liked the idea more then in the beginning.

The surrounding he causes contains much movement and strengh and I liked to

work out the lightning from belowe.

This is a file update i made,because i was not really happy with the result of the fireball effect of the staff.It´s a minor modification and i think its much better now ;-)

Love the level of detail. This piece really lets the observer see some of the devastation unleashed in the typical contest between mages.

Your right about the power of the pose. I think an aging wizard would have been okay. A friend of mine once warned me never to under estimate "old man strength". His presence is really violent and powerful. Another great piece. :clap:
