strikes an interesting balance between malthaels heavenly aspect, and darkness.

I'm gonna say it: THIS IS FUCKING AMAZING! Man, you should have won first place. This is uber badass! The details and lighting are awe-inspiring and simply beautiful. The pose is striking and just eye-catching! Even if you didn't win, fantastic job.

as much as i loved the winning entries... this one seems to trump them all. the way you handled color and lighting, and the pose of the figure is just so majestic. elegant work all around. you win the contest in my head. :nod:

OK. I guess I have to draw my reaction now. :D

Haha, indeed!

I´m not too surprised, I never expect anything when doing art contests, it´s always a very subjective thing. But the money would have been nice though! :)

I need to know your technique. do you use textures, if only you have a video where i can see how you make this art peace.
Joel-Lagerwall's avatar
It´s quite simple, this one is mostly done with one brush, standard soft brush in Photoshop, as for textures I rarely use them, I use textured brushes instead sometimes. Blending modes that I prefer is Color Dodge. I was going to upload some videos on Youtube, but I just haven´t had the time yet, but there will be in the future for sure.

Thanks!
