Infinite Legends by AdamBurn Infinite Legends by AdamBurn
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.

Enjoy :ahoy:

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 :ahoy:

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 :ahoy:

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.
