Master of Pentacles by SuperStinkWarrior Master of Pentacles by SuperStinkWarrior
This was done for a tarot deck on behalf of a client off site.

I am a total novice this level of illustrating, but hope to practice more of this technique in the future.

Fleeting fantasy time: What if Don Bluth were to produce an animated feature inspired by your creations? I can so see that happen!

But, yeah, like GuaxGuax says, work on the clouds in the background a bit more. Or less, actually. Soften them up a bit more and I think you'll arrive closer to perfection.

But the composition rocks!

Holy GOD that's awesome. You should definitely do more pictures like this one, it's too good not to be continued in stride! <3

This is amazing! The detail and the color job ... phwaw, I admire your patience! He also reminds me of Cluny the Scourge from Redwall, first book in the Redwall series. I loved those books so much.

SuperStinkWarrior Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2011
Thanks! I'm very new at painting, so I have some additional work to do with it. However, I'm in the process of doing another one of these, so hopefully, it'll look even better.

I wish they'd make Redwall a 2-D animated movie!

There is a cartoon series for Redwall, Martin the Warrior, and one more of the books I believe, but it was only for Tv so they cut the stories quite short and the animation isn't terribly great. A pity, really, since Jacques once made mention of liking to see his books animated with Disney quality.

Thanks! I actually learned through this piece that painting the background first and influencing forces second will determine the lighting and tones on the foreground character.
