I think I love the process even more than the original piece. Your stuff always seems so effortless and simple when it's broken down like that, though I know you probably find it a lot more challenging than how it looks.
Whoa. Thanks for uploading the process for this piece. It's so cool to see it develop in its various stages and the changes you made as you went along. I think you made the right call, bringing the ghoul forward and swapping out the necromancer in the background for a landscape that doesn't compete with your primary figure. I also like the change from the sword to the axe. It lends more menace to the piece. Adding the arrows as also a nice touch near the end. COOL stuff, man.
thank you very much. That s how I work, I have a basic idea then add or remove things as I move along in the painting. sometimes things just don t work. I wanted the character to be some kind of undead viking. I didn t want to go with the typical horned helmet, that is to cheesy and the sword ended up looking like he was showcasing it for some game show. the axe was more fitting to the viking look and also fit the composition a heck of allot better. I am glad you like it
