This is a small illustration I did for my brothers band. I painted it in B&W with acrylics and then did some corrections and subtle tone coloration in Photoshop. It was a little practise in traditional media. More of my usuall stuff soon.

Here is a sketch for this one: [link]

Hehe, vyžaruje z toho taká priamočiará, tupá a zbesilá brutalita. Takého "deduška" by som nechcel stretnúť v noci niekde v lese.

Veľmi dobré, prinášaš takú poctivú "rukodielnosť" do sféry zvačša až sterilne uhladeného digitálneho umenia, ktorým sa tu prezentujú niektorí autori...

Inak ako sa volá tá bratova skupina?

cozee, ja som si bola ista, ze to je robene tvojim beznym stylom vo photoshope, ibaze sa mi zdalo zaujimave, ze je ten obraz taky "cisty" bez tvojich beznych tahov naokolo:)

Reminds me of King Vold's hounds from the Hellboy short story of the same name. Great work!
