"Who needs a pick and shovel when you have one of these."


I loved working with the juxtaposition between the stocky dwarf and elongated insectoid Umber Hulk. The help emphasise the disparity in the relationship I put the Dwarf into the shadow cast by his monstrous companion. This in turn helped provide the different focal points of light against dark and vice versa.

I love how this really adds a bit of culture to the dwarves.
I feel like the classic elves, ogres, and dwarves tend to be these very simplistic and stareotipical people. but this adds a bit of lore and detail

No doubt it was very well made, and you had a great opportunity drawing for RPG books.

I still think the rpg is 'running away' from the medieval fantasy, but... I'm very happy for your talent and oportunity.

Good job!

Haha, I never thought someone could tame an umber hulk. I can see why it'd be a dwarf though. They're stubborn and strong enough to be the perfect race for the job.

fuuack Just wow!! just wow!! totally killing it! My eyes are watering from the shock of your talent.
Don't get me wrong, digital art is amazing but when you can do the stuff you do on canvas to this level...trumps digital art for me every time. When i get my finances in order, acrylics and oil is definitely something I will be pursuing.
