I leave a suggestive title so you can decide if this guy makes it or if he is just a bit too ambitious...

As soon as he does a monster it looks like landscape. Awesome, moving, monstery landscape.

Bile rose in his throat at the sight of the beast.  Legs trembling, he braced himself for the charge, cursing all the gods for the slippery stone beneath him and the iron grey skies above.  "My name will live forever," his breathless exclamation the last sound the warrior made before battle ripped all thought but survival from him.

Gorgeous work.  Your whole gallery is great but this is my favorite piece.  Thank you for posting!  I hope my commentary is ok ^_^

holy shit

Interesting. I would have to disagree with GeoBerserker. I think the frothing white water and the white of the sword breaks up the darkness around the scene. With the sky being dark, it surrounds our hero with dread and uncertainty. Even the Heavens are not in his favor. A sliver of hope is shining through by the light hitting his sword. The light spills onto the froth of the water, allowing him to see his opponent against the rocky background. Just my opinion.

Love the concept of this piece. I find I really like the atmosphere and mood you put into your work. I would say though I feel the frothing water is a weak point in this particular one. I feel it is way to bright and white. When I look at the rest of the background, it is very dark, gray and overcast feeling. I notice that the sword and helmet of the would be hero is bright as well, so maybe there is a break in the clouds above? If so, I would suggest maybe to adds some rays or something coming down, it feels somewhat awkward as it is. This is just my opinion and I know you didn't ask for a critique. This isn't to suggest that I am not a fan of your work, as I am definitely a fan and feel I can learn much from looking at your work, so apologies if you are offended, not my intention at all.

Heroes (and especially wanna-be heroes) tend to live short lives and to die violent deaths -- but hey, someone has to do it. Great picture...

It's great! Thanks for sharing! I especially like the very light values on the knight. Stuff like this always teaches me a lot!

arbiter5570 Featured By Owner May 13, 2012
both die? could make an awesome picture him clinging to life kneeling with one hand on his sword with the dead beast behind him
richardhaddadau Featured By Owner May 1, 2012   Digital Artist
Wow, good work. Thanks for sharing.

One thing I dislike about it is the fact that we're so far away as viewers. I would like to be just behind the hero seeing and feeling the terror of the monster in front of me. It just doesn't scare me at the moment.

But good work.

He's bitten off more than he can chew - though I doubt the monster will bite off more than HE can chew :D

"And thus happened that the mighty Rawlmarrr defeated the evil shiny-hand-and-horn butcher demon, and freed us from the dread and misery."

I leave a suggestive comment so you can decide your point of view. :P
Empeza Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2012
It's amazing, as always ^^
I don't know, whether he will make it, but if he is a good jumper, he might be able to jump up on it's head and stab it between the eyes, which might kill it, supposedly, unless of course it is like panzer between the eyes, then he might not have a chance ^^'
svstrauser Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2012
It depends.
How fast can he run?
Hijiklomo Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Whether he makes it or not, you have to appreciate his fortitude. I'd have pissed myself silly before I even got that close to the damn thing. :laughing:
YikYik Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2012
I'd say he's too ambitious. He's only armed with a sword... agains that?! He needs harpoons, or lances or magic to survive! But very cool picture! I like the composition and lighting very much. :nod:
gabrielegabba Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Great work as usual, but I find the brown palette a bit boring tbh.
Daffie-Mike Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Sweet really cool!
RedDolch Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2012  Student Digital Artist
As long as he stays out of the water he has a chance.

Awesome lighting and perspective, I love the colors and textures throughout this painting. Amazing Work!
relic1317 Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2012
you know....i could be wrong, but i *think* he might be biting off a little more than he can chew here :)
great as always though
Elemento11 Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2012   Digital Artist
Wow factor...
Sir-Catherine Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Fantastic. Great use of light and texture for the water. I really like your style with the Hero, too. It's not ultra-realistic, leaves a lot to the viewer's imagination, really adds to the "I wonder what happens" sense about this work. And the title, of course, sums it all up nicely. ;)
KnightofSpades Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2012
All the things a real monster should be! Great setting really desolate! The monster is awesome!
Apple-dot Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2012
I love the composition and your use of light in this piece in how you first see the glint of the hero's sword and helmet preparing to strike the lake/sea/mysterybodyofwater creature. I also like how you handled the creature design, it's so large and there are mountains everywhere it's camouflage is perfect, seeing the whites of its eyes is a menacing touch too.
executioner-ed Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
all i wanted to do was take a leak.

lol. great piece.

and unless our guy is one mad mammajamma, he's more likely to end up on a biscuit with gravy for the critter.
