    BURNED at the Stake

    One of 3 illustrations for 3 book covers.

    Yangus was a religious protestant against catholic church. He fought for equal treatment and righteous ways.
    Later Yangus was burned alive, as a heretic by catholic church.

    War began for religious freedom, It was a war for the Grail.

    Image done in Oil/Linen 12/16'', and photoshop.

    I like your imagination on this... good cool versus warm... nice silhouette/image... good impressionistic feel to the catholic torchers in the midground...

    Small crits... the face of Yangus seems a bit cartoon-outlined.... lacking in subtlety, so its not very believable. The black lips and black cheek shadow especially don't look real.

    The smoke has a lot of energy, but it seems to be lacking form and its confusing the eye as to where the smoke is and where the background is. It is attaching to the midground and the background in the center of the picture.

    The red underlighting on the main figure seems haphazard, it appears in some spots where it shouldn't because the light from the fire would be blocked (back of the neck, back of the jaw, forearms) and doesn't appear elsewhere, where it should (inner thigh, right kneecap)

    Anyhow, nice job, and good luck
