Artwork Description

For the Anti-Cliche contest...How would things be if the fantasy cliche's actually came true?

".. oh christ, now it says go back that way. Just where _is_ this dungeon, anyways? I don't know how far I can drag this sword, and my loincloth keeps blowing in the wind!"

"Hey, at least you're well ventilated.. I'm sweating like a pig! What idiot decreed that wizards always have to wear dark robes in summer -- do you have any idea what I smell like right now?"

"Actually, yes, I do."

I agree Reeve! To complete the "titanic trio", a dumb barbarian is essential Smile Of course then we need the wisecracking, sneaky thief, and, and.. hmm. Gotta draw the line somewhere!

I really enjoyed this painting. I like the sign pointing the wrong way and all. The description was hilarious. You should have added the "Bulky axe wielder that has a vocabulary of seven words" as well.

It went through a couple claustrophobic versions before I hit on this one, that is able to get some depth I think. Thanks for commenting!

Thanks Stephanie! I was starting to despair on the shoulders, as well as ever getting this to a finished state in general.

Danka Bill. Funny pictures are alot harder to pull off than I imagined, but you have quite a few in your gallery!

Hi Marie, thanks! My goal has always been so that I can paint a picture in either acrylics or digital with no difference in style or quality. I'm not there yet, but its my goal. Smile

Nice to see it finished Stephen, her shoulders look a lot better now. I love the painterly effect, it gives a clean crisp feel to the picture. Sorry it didn't win but the winners would of taken some beating. Better luck next time Smile

Hehehe your commentary was just so funny, just cracked me up! Smile I love what you've done with this pic, it doesn't have a digital feel at all, more like acrylic and coloured pencil! Lovely colours, love the humor! Smile

Art at its best.
