This is a personal painting I did a long time ago. An old version of this painting was featured in Spectrum 13, but I fixed it up for the Spectrum Annual Show that was held in New York at the Museum of American Illustration last year.

I also did a few quick tutorials with this image. You can find them on my youtube site.

Draw is amazing but I really like that fog effect, especially lower right as the horse and rider pass through it. Astounding technique.

Yeah, they actually stole my painting and used it illegally. I had to get a lawyer and contact them about it. They were supposed to have destroyed all of their inventory. Can you still buy it there? If you can, I need to contact them again because part of the deal was that they would destroy their inventory.

Wow, cool, I love the armor! For both the horse and rider. And I like how you've framed the heavy hard feeling of the armor with the enveloping soft flowing mist.

The mistiness adds to the raw, gritty feeling in this piece. I love how you can't see the horseman's eyes which further establishes a sense of foreboding, detachment, and dread.

Makes me think of the four horsemen/warhammer. The foggy/cold appearance is so well done and adds a lot of depth to the piece.
