Manhunt by RalphHorsley Manhunt by RalphHorsley
Manhunt

Acrylic, approx 7" x 10"

World of Warcraft trading card game illustration
©Blizzard Entertainment & Upper Deck.

Original artwork sold.

A deal has been struck, but whose life has become forfeit?

I wanted to create mood and atmosphere, but also focus. I chose a spotlight effect. This would draw attention to theheads of the bandits.

Also the contrasting yellow and red of the light and shadow hopefully helps create a sense of tension.

For some reason.. I'm digging the focus on that ring. I can so come up with a written scene to go along with this. Very nice!

I love the fact that the Collector's Ring (which starts the quest called 'Manhunt', if other viewers didn't know) is so prominent. I try to do that quest every time I make a new character.

The brief did request that the ring featured clearly.

*Gasp.* Where is the female, kick ass assassin? There should be a girl! I always find myself being an assassin in fantasy games. Assassins rock. XD

But freaking awesome. I can just imagine the conversation in my head.... and the ensuing story... romantic subplo... sorry. Mind going wild...
