The final cover of the great trilogy of Andrakis by Tony Shillitoe. I enjoyed making this very much!
weird like everything of yours i've seen i love the strong pose of the hooded face and the horses,... straingly the rider's sword/hand looks strange and a bit weak to me... than agian il love the rest and realy coudn't do better
=)) many thanks for such appreciation!
I only sore your work for the first time a couple of days ago but after looking through your pictures you have gone strait to my top three favourite atrtists ever! Keep the fantastic work up
I love the atmosphere created by the fog-snow and the dark sky. I find the little light sky right above the mountains confusing though, for me it takes away from the 'dark' surroundings that the lord is travelling in. Another thing I would like to ask you is why the dragon and man in the hood part of the picture? If it were up to me I would show a little more at the bottom and then the sky, that should make it interesting enough. Last, why the left hand for the (otherwise beautiful) sword?
Hi Nicole! How wonderful that you like this cover! Thanks for the little info too Yeah, Tony seems like a very cool person, altough I've only talked with him through e-mail.
Love the horses, very dynamic use composition and colours. I Also like your 'painterly' style.
Just a useless piece of information, but Tony Shillitoe was my high school English teacher when I lived in Adelaide. He's a very cool person, still gives me a kick when I seen his books in the shops
It's taken years and years for me to understand horses as I do now. I don't know exactly who or what has taught me to do them better.. But I'm glad for it, I hope I'll do better with humans too, as the years go by
And I'd be happy to to give you tips with the horse's anatomy. No, not just happy, deeply honoured!!
Yes I believe the horses took some effort, but it definitely paid off, the horses are superb, whish I would understand half as much about horses anatomy as you do, next time I have to do a piece including horse would be cool if I could show the sketch to you upfront so you could correct the anatomy problems I have with horses . This is a really great piece keep up your fabulous work and your talent will take you far my friend!
Thank you, dear Guest! Yeah, the face was fun to make, it ought to look like half-elf, with a demonish look in his eyes with a glimpse of bitterness and lust for power
Rita, thanks plenty
Uwe, most appreciated I loved making this, the horses especially took quite an effort.. Thanks again!!
Wonderful and dramatic! Especially love the face in close up and the snow stirred up by the horses' hooves. Terrific work!
Kirsi what shall I say my hats up to you! This is spectacular! And this is immediately going to be my favorite! Wow, you rock!!!
