LavaLizard smirked as the battle took them into the fire canyons - he knew he now had the upper hand. While TsaoShin was powerful beyond all measure, he lacked agility and grace. The winding maze would be a devastating trap, difficult for the daemon to negotiate. LavaLizard, exhausted, breathed in the sulfur filled air of his natural home, and contemplated his next move. It would only be a matter of moments before he would turn the tide of the fight.


Created with ArtRage. Touch ups in Photoshop CS3.

:iconlavalizard: and I have a long running history of drawing each other in epic battles. I had a lot of fun with this illustration!

I wonder how LavaLizard's monstrous reincarnation Kragatar would do in a battle against daemon Tsao... Instead of wits VS brute strength, it'd be a clash of two raging hulks this time. Tsao is still the bigger beast, but Krag's relentless fury is a force to be reckoned with...

I have a question: what caused you to progress between pieces like this to the more simplified and bright drawings you do now? Is it just as simple as that's what you enjoy drawing more? Just curious!

It was a style change that happened over years.  I had a much more deliberate and time consuming process back when I drew this way.  It would take months to finish a single piece.  I'm much happier with my current style and finished drawing output rate :)

Ah, awesome! I just find style development in artists to be fascinating so I was wondering, it seems like depending on the artist they either travel to a more detailed style as the years go on, or after doing lots of detailed work they switch to a more stylized art style.

I kept on meaning to catch you on one of your streams to ask this question but never seemed to be able to catch you in time haha, thanks for answering
