A Quiet Man by PeteMohrbacher A Quiet Man by PeteMohrbacher
I did this for a charity commission a couple years ago but I couldn't find it in my gallery. I'm not sure why I didn't post it.

I'm going to go against popular opinion and say I don't like his face, his hair and facial structure give me a disturbingly Sun Wukong vibe.

That said, I absolutely love everything about the room, his weapons, his posture, his attire, the ornaments on the walls. Everything (except his face, in my opinion) is absolutely glorious. If it weren't for his face I'd want to frame a print of this to put over my fireplace.

The expression on his face......, the glass of red wi (!!!!!!!!) .

Reminds me of Edmond Dantes's friend Fernand, from the Count of Monte Cristo.

All your art is amazing

I love the attention to detail in this piece. From the rug, the bear rug, the lion on the sword, to the lighting from the candle/fire/window. Complex but beautifully rendered :">

wow, look at the detail on the carpet... <3
I just found you today a few minutes ago and have seen a few of your pieces and I love your work *watches and faves*
SilverLiqueur Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2011
The details are stunning, the lighting across the face is lovely, and I love the way everyone seems to recalling a different character when they look at the man.

As for me? My first thought was "Hello, Reaver."

He seems hot. Also, amazing work. The details are mindblowing.

So many details to look at. So much story the image weaves in and of itself. Amazing work, mate!

Great work as usual, in particular for the dresses of the subject and the shape of the sword; simple but with a touch of originality. ;)

JoJoCookie-Chan Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2011  Hobbyist
Love the lighting :wow:
Deneb-Cygni Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2011
Ahh! As usual, your work is stupendous. :) Your perspective technique is getting to be especially impressive, and boy did you put it to good work in this piece! The palette really sets the mood well, with a good balance of warm versus cool colours-- I particularly like the lit candle, the vase, and the golden sigils on his lapel and sword-hilt. I honestly suspect that this man was not (or maybe *is* not) quite as quiet as he seems... :P

I was sad that you weren't at GenCon! Is there another way I could get a 13x19 (or is it 14x20?) print of Leliel from you? She's waaaay too pretty. :) Thanks, and fantastic work!

I want to know this man on a wine drinking and pipe smoking basis.
AnnyKi Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I saw you working on it during the livestreams. It looks amazing, and I love how you filled all of the space in and how it leads the eye around the whole picture.
hEyJude4 Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2011  Student General Artist
I remember this from the livestreams. It looks great, especially the floor and all the rugs.

I love the pooing of fabric on the foor, and the pieces on the mantle piece. The mood you've created with the color is very well done.

quiet man but doesn't appear to be a quiet mind...

You convey an entire personality and history in a single frame. Impressive work.

It's very dark in the whole atmosphere of it, but I can still make out all these little details like a photograph. *U*
IsiPeinto Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2011
This is great. The atmosphere, depth and expression. Can you tell me what the charity event was for so that I can understand what is going on?
Knight-of-Ishtar Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2011
This is great I love the way every thing seems so real. I can't hope but to put a small story to the image .With him looking at the whine glass with that look of "uh never thought I would be here" and then theirs the dagger in his hand and with him holding it as if he would be somewhat uncomfortable with out it ,and then the sword that looks like a grand weapon of lords and kings.I wounder that at some time ago he lived in the slums become an assassin and some way ended up a noble. :)
ValerieJB Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2011
I remember you working on this via livestream. (I think I saw it after the fact actually.) It's beautiful. I love the lighting and atmosphere. All those details must have been time consuming! Lovely piece. :)
