Angelus - Imperial Guard by VonStreff Angelus - Imperial Guard by VonStreff
Angelus: Sometimes all we want is to be forgiven.

A painting for Angelus, my novel. It took about four hours all up. First time painting horses too, so not too shabby.

Not bad at all for four hours. :D Landscapes always kill me. Wonderful composition on this one, you've got a good sense for it.

Four hours?!?!?! I fail at life. :facepalm:

This is epic, man! You've got knights charging, dragons, castles, awesome, rich fantasy scenery and awesome lighting effects to top it all off. It's kinda like Gears if War. Ya just sit down, ask yourself what's all the awesome stuff in the world, then throw it all together. Jeeze.

Honestly, there's only one point I can think of to critique, and that's that the castle looks a bit strange without any windows or texture or anything on the sides in a perfect square. The shape and everything is cool and unique, but it kinda brings out how plain the sides are which is also juxtaposed by the well textured and loose (an awesome combo) rest of the painting.

Seriously, though. This is awesome.

Nice, thank you! :)

Mm, I'm not happy with the castle either. I will go over this painting and fix it soon. Thanks for the tips, very perceptive and deep. :)

Very realistic space. The view point makes that I think (eye level) :)

Thanks! Yeah, I didn't use perspective lines *slaps hand* but they seem close enough!

Wait, your first time painting horses?
My word, if this is a first time on that you're one heck of an artist.
I can't even sketch something that looks remotely like a horse, let along a lot of really good horses in an additionally awesome picture.
Great piece, it was a pleasure to stumble over this piece.

I like the buildings in the background a lot. They remind me of ancient Hebrew architecture, very cool.

Aww, thank you! I'll have part two of the process up tomorrow. It's not as cool as the first part, just detailing.
