    Urdumheim and Talisman Card Art

    Hi there, I'm glad I finally gathered enough stuff and time to post here again :

    - The cover for "Urdumheim", the novel from Michael Swanwick. Will soon appear on Fantasy & Science-Fiction Magazine. The tale is great, as soon as I read it I had the imagine of these primeval gods sitting on top of Ararat, as you can find in the book.

    - Cover for "Slaine the defiler", the second book in the Slaine new saga written by Steven Savile and published by Black Library.

    - The cover for the comic contained inside the R.E.V.s Toys from Playmates Toys

    - The New World Landing Site, a landscape for Biodelic.

    - A couple of the Adventure Cards I made for the new edition of Talisman, that will be released the first of October by Black Library. I'll post more as soon as I have the permission...

    the figure screaming into the air is remarkable,

    You carry alot of classic fantasy in your works. We're you a tradiational painter for most of your career and then switched to digital, becuase i see alot of tradiational elements in your digital pieces that often digital artists will push under the rug once they go digital.

    Seems like I gathered in this post all the italian good fellas ... forgive me if I reply in english but since we're in an english speaking forum it wouldn't be polite if I spoke only italian...

    TheGnoll: Thanks! I guess you know I'm involved in comics most of all, I make illustrations just in my spare time. I wish I had more time to work on them...

    jega74: Thanks a lot!

    ICH: The first two pieces are covers for books and magazines, maybe you see a greater attention to composition in these and probably a lot of characters make them more interesting to look at

    Very inspirational work. Most of your images have a very iconic look to them, which I dig. How do you get such dynamic lightning if you don't mind me asking?

    Thanks! I'm willing to answer to your question if you explain to me what do you mean exactly with "dynamic lightning"...

    Great stuff! Really nice Slaine cover!

    Incidentially - "urdum" means "relly stupid" in swedish. So "Urdumheim" would be "home of the really stupid". This can´t be unintenional can it...?

    Cheers!

    Maybe it's not a coincidence... in the tale "Urdumheim" is the place where the creatures of dumb chaos come from....

    Tanatos: Thanks... I've been thinking a lot in these days about the answers I had to this post and those I had not... Most of all about my art compared to other things I see on ConceptArt and all over the rest of the world.
    I feel there is a lack of movement in my characters and composition. I should also deepen the study of the outfits... I'll keep working on that in next pieces, hope I can post more soon.

    good stuff! the first, second, and five picture are the best for me.
    in the environment, the atmospheric perspective can be better.
