Trail of Dead CD cover art by tegehel Trail of Dead CD cover art by tegehel
Trail of Dead CD cover art, prior to having the title, album title and other elements added (not by me.)

*"not by me" seems to confuse people. The elements added "not by me" were the text, titles, fonts, and borders found on the original CD cover. The painting here present, I did. I hope it clears things up.

Daily Deviation

Given 2005-05-11
The battle scene in Trail of Dead CD cover art by ~tegehel simply blew me away. Incredible details and a rather classic feel of ancient epic battles makes this a must-see deviation! ( Featured by damphyr )

Very good. A lot of work, I think. Reminds me of this painting bei Albrecht Altdorfer:

Hey, I really dig this art! I'm making a CD (nothing big, just for family and friends) and I really need someone to do the coverart! I'll put your name in the credits of course and I could send you the CD if you want! thanks!
Send me an e-mail at dtfan@live.no if you're interested!

I saw a gorilla, spider/octopus, pirates, pistols, and a night. They were all tiny, though.

Crap, I remember buying their cd, looking at the art and being blown away. To find the artist is a dA'er is just. . .

I love it, and I think you're now my favorite artist on dA. :) Just keep on goin' . . .and keep feeding them cats. XD

holy bjeez there's alot going on there. if I had to paint that I think I'd have a heart attack. actually i think I had a minor one just looking at it. lol.
nice work. everything flows nicely and the elements are well varied. I like the splashes of color to break up the big groups of people. :D
