The beholder is great - like the one without the forest background the best.

Cthulhu is excellent! The experiment with the color reverse is looking good. Undecided yet whether i like EO's original b/w or the reverse you have. And can't help but wonder what the picture would look like with greens added in.

Cheers!

Axe looks like it is held wrong, the pinkie finger should be closer to the body and the index finger closer to the viewer.

Yeah, I did screw up the perspective on that, didn't I.
I'll fix it.

I don't know about that.  I kind of like it.  Take a look at many baseball batters.  Before they take their swing as the pitcher is getting the sign, they hold the bat loose.  This fighter could be stalking or sneaking and is holding the axe loose so as to not drain his fingers of blood and grip right before the battle.  I say keep it, but it's your piece. 8)


Truth is worth finding and life is too short to work for money.

The axe handle can't go in that direction with how its held unless its 'L' shaped.

P'raps the axe is for striking around corners.   :D

I like the illustration anyway.  It reminds me of paintings with multiple perspectives.  It's not quite cubism, but it is something similar.  I am also glad the warrior has no spiky bits and distractions that say "Look at me!  I am so rich and flashy that I should die first!"

Thanks for the interest and compliments.
I've updated it with a background and a few tweaks.

Thanks!
By the way, does anyone know the name of the artist that drew the original cover to that issue of the Domesday Book?

These are my latest.
First is my rendition of David C. Sutherland III's illustrations on the DM's Guide pages 170-173 that I made for the October banner of AliveandOutofPrint.com

Great job!  I really like those four pieces on the top from Dave Sutherland. You've added some nice dimensionality.

Mike.

With the recent passing of Dave Arneson I decided to paint my version of his Blackmoor supplement.
