Graf Anderssen Last Stand by ~Rufus-Jr. When looking at these watercolors, it's easy to identify the artist's great skills and style. I feel that this work is extremely technical and well-composed, too. ( Suggested by spyderraver and Featured by MidnightExigent )

My initial response was that it was Warhammer Fantasy professional or fan art; but then I read a little bit through your comments and found that it wasn't, intentionally. I really think that the mix of historical armor with weird creatures pretty much captures the "feel" of what the Warhammer fantasy world is about - in fact more than some official art for the setting!

Thank you for your comment.

Indeed, my first intention wasn't directly inspired by Warhammer Fantasy Battle but I'm a long-time player (20 years ago)especially The Empire. And I like the feel of the 'V3 era' with the Realms Of Chaos books, etc.

So, I'm inevitably influenced by WHB in this illustration ('german armor' look, laurels on the helm,etc)as well as Moorcock's universe (who partially inspired WHB) and Medieval/Renaissance European History.

I saw this and my first thought after the initial amazement was 'This MUST have a DD', I scrolled down and saw that justice actually exists!!! This is a magnificent piece. I love everything in it but mostly the way you used the light, proggressively focusing attention on the top center, adding to the feel that this is a crucial moment, even when it lasts a second. Besides, it's watercolors :omg:.

Wicked! You did a great job on that armor, although the rider below the bird-person gets lost. I didnt' notice him until...a while of looking.
