Goblin gave a truly awful howl of rage. They had called it
Orcrist, Goblin-Cleaver, but the goblins called it simply Biter.
They hated it and worse, anyone that carried it ...murderers,

I started like most here at an early age, and later went on to art collage. I did a little bit of illustration after I left Art collage, but was talk into getting a proper job when my first child was on the way, and since I had already done an apprenticeship as a electrician, that was the easier path to take.
I`ve always kept my hand in doing various art over the years, and now my youngest is 21, I`m free again to concentrate on my ambitions...thanks for dropping in Jocelyn!

You know....I am temted to ask you how you do it....but I already know the I will keep working on it. This picture is amazing....your use of colors is sutnning...some artist are stuck on only a few colors ( for instance) but you use a generous amount and really bring the painting to life.

Thanks Anthony mate...inquistion size is approx 13"x19" some of it was painted in watercolours and other part mainly the figures is a photo of plastersine sculptures I made and just dropped them into photoshop as photos...I even used a photo of my 21 year old son in it..can you spot it. The figures in the far background are drawn digitally in photoshop. oh and the sword I modelled in lightwave...and rendered it...

Cool image Terry so much going on but you've kept the focus on the dramatics of the scene. I like your take of the scenes.

Thanks for visiting Patrick...Yes I`m always surprised at how many picture I`ve missed on Epilogue...yet I usually visit almost every day...This one looks a lot better printed as 19"X13" this size the viewer tends to lose the texture, but at least you can get an overall impression...

I'm not sure if I every saw this one when it was first approved... Now that I have, I have to say it's pretty cool! I love the lighting, of course, and how each character is doing something different - different expressions, body language, angle, etc... Very effective.

Yes I was hoping to touch up it up here and there in the future...I wasn`t aware of James Christensen, so I looked him up on the net, and I see what you mean. It`s nice to be compared to such an artist...thanks for visiting!

Thanks mate! have a pretty unique style yourself John...!!

The dwarves remind me of James Christensen. Very nice! This is a concept in progress isn't it? I don't know that the sketchiness at the corners with so much beautiful detail in the middle really works. I hope you do finish it more...
