I'm Still Alive! by theDURRRRIAN I'm Still Alive! by theDURRRRIAN
been pretty busy these past weeks so here's something i did to test out some new techniques as well as a possible series of paintings consisting of a bunch of characters i created for a small story i decided to give myself so i won't be painting without direction.

i figured why paint characters that you dont have a personal connection to for your personal stuff? you enjoy painting it much more than some anonymous soldier swinging around a giant sword..... not that there's anything wrong with sword swinging badasses :P

im working on a bunch of these so at least im not painting blindly now (YAAAAAY) so yeah..... 

im only one piece in but im really enjoying it and i hope you guys like it :D

Is it bad that all I can think that this guy is saying right now is "Hah! You Missed!"

I think this painting is absolutely stunning - For the people accusing him of "copying" Dan's piece... seriously, stop.

I mean I was thinking of ways this painting could have been created from a different perspective, but nothing would've compared to the perspective here, it works perfectly and to be honest, it's a pretty standard perspective, it's a straight-on angle and just because a rock was used it's classed as copying.

I respect Dan as an artist too, but I also hate nothing more than people accusing paintings of being the same as someone elses, a lot of the time it just happens to be coincidental. Nothing worse than being accused of being a copycat.

Once again, amazing work, and you deserve good credit for it.
