Escapism by dragonsong12 Escapism by dragonsong12
There are all sorts of ways to escape...

This is one of the lead characters from Twisted Mirrors: Rift. This was intentionally made with very muted colors, greyed shading and flat lighting in order to contrast it more starkly with its companion piece: dragonsong12.deviantart.com/ar…
...messed up his line of sight, though. That's an annoyingly consistent problem for me. We'll just pretend he's looking where he's going to carve next...

I recorded the process of creating this digital painting, which you can see over on youtube:

Nice fantasy artwork!

That's a great combination of a man and a creature ;)

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

If you're interested in these creatures, they are featured in my webcomic: twistedmirrorscomic.com/
...however, fair warning, the comic has been running a long time and the early art is not great. ^^;

Regardless, I'm glad this image still works even without context. That's a real compliment. Thank you!

You seem to be very creative and talented!

For how long have you been doing lovely artworks like this and even whole storylines in webcomics? How old are you now?

Nah, no talent involved. This is just the result of drawing constantly for over a decade. :)
I'm in my 30's/ The comic was started back in...2003, I think?

I am in my 30s, too, so I guess we might be about the same age :) nice to meet you!

Sorry, but I have to disagree:

You obviously are talented. I must know this, because I am not talented :D

By any chance... do you sometimes take art requests as well?

I believe pretty firmly in the "practice, given time, will beat talent" maxim. :nod:

I do take art requests, though with a few notes: I don't do anything sexual or overly violent (not for moral reasons, I'm just really bad at it ^^; ) and you should be aware that I can be really, REALLY slow about getting stuff done depending on what else is happening in my life.
But if you're cool with that, yeah, I take requests. :)

Sounds nice!

Please wait a moment... I think I'll have to send you a note with an idea.

Of course I understand and respect, if you don't like it, but maybe it's something you'd accept as an exciting new challenge :)
