>>>UPDATED, PAGE 3, 04.04.07<<<
New piece to share.
This is for an upcoming book by Forgotten Realms creator Ed Greenwood.
(Though it is NOT a Forgotten Realms book)
It's called "Warriors of Niflheim" and it's about a dark elf who flees her home to escape death, with the aid of her former human slave.
As of right now, the piece is not technically complete.
The Art Director want a few minor changes, so I'll post those here as well as soon as they are done.
In the meantime, here is the piece 'as is', plus some details and progress shots.
As usual, oils on board, approximately 18x24 inches.
The initial pencil drawing layed down on my board:
An acrylic lay-in for values, plus the beginning of the background in oils:
A detail of the completed heroine:
Some characters and columns (yeah, yeah, i know there is a tangency...so sue me):
Another character and the heroine's whip:
That's it for now.
Check back in, I will likely post the revised version, and maybe even a version with typography when it's done.
