New piece I finished to add to the portfolio, a very Warcraft inspired one. I came across a photo of a friend who was traveling and he was standing on a wall next to this giant arc gateway and it inspired me to do this piece. I thought how cool it would be that instead of a road passing through the arc, it were a green liquid plague running through in a river of sorts. This is the result that I came up with.
This past summer, I painted Frostmourne, the weapon of Arthas, the Lich King. This Fall, I'll be painting a 6' tall figure piece of him. To get myself prepared and ready for such a thing, I'll be doing a handful of studies like this one to become better familiar with his armor and helm pieces. This is a study I did from the cinematic for Wrath of the Lich King. Roughly 3-4 hours in photoshop. I did a drawing on paper first, photographed my quick sketch and then painted overtop of my drawing. I'm not sure if this is a way I'll continue to work or not, but I had a lot of fun with this and am excited for the next bunch before I start on the actual painting, with a sketch I'll draw up completely unique from the studies.
