What was taken by NightmareGK13 What was taken by NightmareGK13
An illustration from one of the first scenes of my second book, the knight in black returns to manhandle a resistance Elf.

So two things before i go on, IT'S NOT A MEDIEVAL DARTH VADER AND IT'S NOT MY VERSION OF DR. DOOM. For some reason im expecting these comments so pardon me if i go postal on you guys if you do so.

So the armor isn't as detailed as i would have liked but i was more focused on technique and painting more than detail, also, a highly detailed armor wouldn't fit him as good as it would on any other character but i admit a little more wouldn't hurt it.

The Black Knight as described in Hubris, appears twice on the beginning of the two books in Éron's dreams. All shrouded in mystery and speaking in a strange tongue, capable of great destruction and carrying a great evil power within.

that's all folks, ill be working a bit on something extra while i prepare the next painting.

~cheers

as usual and i keep forgetting this on the descriptions even though it's on the image

...Dark Elf NecroFire Mage wandering the different abyssal planes looking for the eye of Ifrit to complete his master mages staff. Mage isn't a novice and knows the advantage of enchanted bad ass armor. At least that's what came to mind for me.

Was wondering to the name of your books and where I'd be able to read them. They sound interesting and right up my alley. The picture is very well done and beautiful I might add

Hello there ;)
first of all thanks for both the compliment and for being interested, it makes me very happy to see people interested in reading my books

well i have to say that for the time being they haven't been published, and translated, i'm portguese so i am frst writing in my home language to then translate afterwards.
So the only piece of work that will be available soon is the character visual guide, a part of Hubris illustrated (the whole project is called "Hubris")
So like i said on my journal i will make a poll asking people which character they are most eager to see, and as sort of a test i will upload it and hope to see how the public reacts, maybe do some changes and whatnot and then i aim to have a digital and printed released when this first illustration book is ready.

thanks again and keep in touch for some news :P
in the meantime you ca cycle through some illustrations and read their descriptions ;P

Awesome work. :la: I love the lighting. The contrast between the highlights and the shadows creates a dramatic effect onto the picture. Then your use of red adds an interesting atmosphere full of mystery and potential danger. Great job! :D
