The Sword of Radhost



Hi Guys !
This is a cover I just finished. It's for a re-edition of fantasy novels I did covers for about six years ago (my first ones). So this is actually new version of this cover: [link]

This is one of the first images I've been doing after Berlin Made Symposium where I had my portfolio reviewed by Marko Djurdjevic, Coro and Esad Ribic. They gave me a lot of useful critique. So I'm trying to develop my illustrating abilities. I'm trying to use less effects and concentrate more on the painting, composition and anatomy. Hopefully in some time I'll get better and faster. Looking forward on this road, but it'll be a hard one :)

Hope you’ll like the image. I may change something after some time (it’s too fresh now to see all the mistakes). If there is something you don’t like please tell me.

edit: I edited the picture a liitle, corrected proportions of the rider, gave it a little different crop etc. thanks, for the comments and crits!
