“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

MONSTER_commission



Going to be gone for a bit, folks. Head's full and I need to clear it out. Be back in a couple of weeks with new stuff and hopefully a fresh perspective. Until then...

[*Edit: Wasn't happy with the previous end product so I redrew it. And here it is. Enjoy.]

I feel your pain...been there b4.

This one seems to have a bit of "Klimt" in it...maybe is the swirly mist? Makes for a nice design flow, which is one of many things I love about "Klimt's" work!

This is actually another 'quiet' piece of art from you...well done, as usual, capture the "moment" of importance to tell the story!

That's excellent. Ever read the book? While there isn't a "Villagers killing the Monster" scene, that does remind me of when the Daemon is hiding out and learning human mannerism and speech.
