As part of a new series of personal paintings made for print I created this rather odd fight scene between an angel and a serpent, the idea was it,s being fought on the surface of the sun as you do, those large solar prominences that erupt on the suns surface take the form of these characters and duke it out, there is also some faint signs of ancient Greek architecture in the background, again pretty odd.
Noting to say but lovely . Love the conept
I feel like it's changing colors before my eyes!
Wow, this is intense. I love the fire and intensity of the battle.
how do u make those lightnings ???
they are all painted yes, then copied and warped and transformed to create the overall shape
I guess you help yourself with Apophysis, Chaoscope or sth similar ... however do you use some blending techniques or just linear/color dodge blending modes ?
fair few fractals in there yes. With blending techniques it's mostly colour dodge and screen
Do you know Flame Painter ? It could help considerably with this type of painting. I also like to paint "similar" stuff (dragon auras), it's in my gallery, but like you I did them all by hand, but should I make more illustrations with dragon auras I would use flame painter now.
Sounds interesting I may check it out but sometimes with these programs they tend to have a certain look about them that's easily noticeable, plus I like doing it by had more freedom and control
wow, i was confused to what was going on here but the idea of a fight taking place on the surface of the sun is pretty cool.
You may think this painting is odd but it is great in my opinion.
TWO STEPS FROM HELL!!!! <3 uh-hem, fantastic, brilliant work!!!
Yus I was listening to that track when on the plane coming back from Venice and it inspired this painting
Liek. A lot. It's frazzing terrific!!!!!
this one is really awesome
Oh wow, I love this. It has such a poetic feel to it and such a EPIC feel to it, like the universe hangs in the balance of the outcome of this fight. I love the idea of it being on the surface of a star.
They'll be fighting forever, I guess. To be created in such a violent manner and to last for a relatively short time, they must be pretty eager to duke it out.
Infinite Legends. There's a Song by Two Steps From Hell which has that name. Awesome Song. And your art is pure epicness.
I was listening to that very track when I was doodling the idea for the image
Amazing use of colors. Great work!
I was reminded of Saint George and the Dragon This is a great pic!
Wow, looks incredible! Reminds me of the Saint George painting I have in my living room. Great job!
Great job! Love the colors and the lights
Really awesome idea! Looks amazing.
