A Deadly Encounter by daarken A Deadly Encounter by daarken
I did this illustration for a workshop for ImagineFX 58. The painting time for this illustration was 4 hours. Included with the magazine is a video tutorial of the painting, although there is no audio.

Wow. That's cool.

...By the way, are those knight-guys supposed to stand a chance? Because it doesn't look like they do.

Stunning work, the metallic shell of the creature is lit up effectively by the surrounding chaos, maintaining a menacing appearance as it looms over the humans. Looking forward to more Daarken, love your work.

You did all of that in 4 hours, or was it already lined?

Either way, really impressive work. I love the orange light effects on the right side.
