WOTC; D&D.

Falon leapt into the fray, determined to scourge the land of this twisted evil.

Falon stands out nice and clearly with strong saturated colours, against the lower contrast, and limited palette of the background.

The fallen tree trunk serves as a great device for drawing the viewers eye into the composition which echoes the line made by the cloak and sword. We end up with a triangle lying on it's side, whose focus rests on the Dark Elf.

WoW, I love the almost transparent shield-and the sword design! The perspective of the picture is genius as well, bravo! =)

Simply outstanding.
Say what is your working method, do you first draw a sketch with a pencil or something on the canvas and then paint with Acrylics or you just paint from the beginning?

The ethereal shield is awesome! Love the little details in this one, like the patterns in his armor, the skulls in the trees, and the fairly large spider beneath the tree trunk :D
