Darkness

In the darkness dwells old evil and the deeper they progressed into this realm, the stronger she felt the presence of it. When they arrived in the Hall of the Dragonlords they found what remained of what once was a glorious and lightflooded place - in the ruins, the spirit of Grukamahr had corrupted the soul of Shri'mehra the last of the jade dragons of Amenar who had turned insane in the lonelyness. Instantly the marvelous beast charged around the corner but the Deathdealer simply didn't care, he charged forth fearless while she called the Grace of the Godess, shielding him from the icey flame, the two forces just before the first impact and a long epic battle was about to begin.

Done this as a speed for Frank Frazzetas 80st birthday when Imagine FX asked me to make a sketch for him, I immediately agreed to contribute. To do this for one of my childhood heroes was an unexpected gift and I wish i knew that earlier and had less to do in the studio. But then, it was fun to do it and the fact i could give back something to someone who gave me so much was just great. This is a Tribute to one of the greatest Fantasy artists alive, hope you like the speedy too :) enjoy

Incredible artwork, you’re skill truly shines in this piece. An exemplary tribute to one of the greatest fantasy artists of all time.

I still get chills seeing his work come to life in his collaboration with Bakshi, Fire & Ice, and his work with Robert E. Howard’s most famous character, Conan, is iconic.

This is a worthy tribute indeed.
