He seems to be thinking "I really must be better in controlling my temper."

This one is familiar from Warcraft III. But He stabbed in to king's chest. I really hate gore stuffs. But your art is really amazing. Hope you make good and clean artworks with this same skill :)

Where is this scene from? It reminds me of WCIII. I really love how you did the background, the stain glass windows are beautiful.

JBarnzi88 Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2006
Love the detail...looks creepy...
YamiZoe Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2006
Man, that's simply fantastic...

...It's perfect. I can't really say anything more.

Reminds me of Warcraft III too. :XD:
Hettar7 Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2006
really powerful image. i especially like the intricate windows and light streaming down from them. kind of surprising that there's no blood on the man on the throne since he's presumably just cut someone's head off.
thomismyart Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2006   Traditional Artist
wow. thats beautiful. it envokes so much. true artwork in my own opinion causes many feelings all at once that isnt possible to disect into one. :D
absinthe-vampirate Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2005
Oh man. This is awesome. I really, really love this one.
parablivion Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2005
Awesome concept. Nice work.

wow, what an awesome dark and graphic picture! The old king's face is twisted in horror and anger to me, and the other man seems sorta I don't know sad? his shoulders heavy suddenly.. but this is an awesome image!
ankashai Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2005   Photographer
You know what's sad? The first thing I thought when I looked at this wasn't 'wow this is great' [which it is] or 'what great color/lighting', but rather 'what idiot designed that armour?'

But then, I *make* armor, and use armor in Middle Ages Recreation. And while the armor is certainly very pretty, it's... well, not practical. There's no reason I can think of that anyone would articulate shins and thighs, since any articulation just means more time repairing the thing when the pieces start falling apart [ and they will. Articulated pieces are usually held together with leather and rivets, and sooner or later a good blow will pop a rivet. So you get to re-rivet the damn thing ]. The knee cops also look too big [ but he may have big knees! ] and not rounded enough, which would make putting his knee straight difficult.

The way the right arm is built would guide a sword right towards the head [ which, I admit, is usually covered with a helm, but still-- you don't want to be smacked in the head every twenty seconds ], seems a bit too big judging by his frame and his other arm [ too big means it'd be sliding around all the time, and restricts mobility in the arm. Since he's holding the sword in his right hand, I can only assume he's right handed and would want as much mobility in his arm as he could get ]. As for the spikes on the top of the arm, near the shoulder? I can't help thinking he's going to poke his own eye out any moment now.

But I do like the picture. Nice mood. Nice colors. Nice 'lighting'.

Lol, the first thing that came to my mine is Warcraft III. Awesome job.
piemaster Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2005   Digital Artist
It really makes me wonder how people plan out art like this. As a web designer I just "go with the flow" but work that subtle .... wow!

Great work.
silverl Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2005
How wonderfully gruesome ;) I love it!
niteo Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2005
Great.. Just.. Wow.. This is perfect. Reminds me of one song.

another warcraft shot
ninebreaker Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2004
Prolly already said, but it looks like Arthas after he killed King Tyranas in Warcraft 3... that dirty bastard Undead, betraying his Paladin brethren and killing his own father! Oh well, anyways, your CG is impecable.
EkimmuNight Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2004
I love this on so many levels :XD: :+fav:

Caterpillar- Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2004
Wow! Amazing! Like a lot of people said here, it reminds me War Craft III! :D

:+fav: immediately! :D
beowuuf Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2004
Great choice of pose and expression. Fits with the title - as if murder was the only the first in a a long list or wearying tasks needed to be done. And he's too distracted to even get rid of the king afterwards!

Someone said classic style, I agree - the general feel, i love the light aroudn the central window aswell as the shafts on the outer. The rich texture on the bloodied carpet. I disagree about the fire, i think it fits in fine, especially the right hand plinth. I'm not sure if the blood or the ruffled chair fabric fits in with the rest of the picture, but it's a minor thing. And I love the glow on the armour from the diffuse lights.

It might have been nice to have the face much more hooded - brooding shadowed features with the eyes still the same. Almost to match and counterpoint the fantastic dark yet empty expression on the old king.

Great piece.

m3ch4n1zm Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2004
Like this hasn't been said 390432923 times, but yes, it does look like the first cinematic from Warcraft III... This is excellent work, the all done in PS7 amazes me as well. Such detail...everything in this is...detailed to perfection. Keep up the amazing work! *faint*
chaospanther Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2004
Arthas! Awesome, this picture is amazing though, the details are quite impressive and the pose is great :D well done :clap:
Synner666 Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2004
Just amazing! YOUR WORK! So incredible
wolfgangh Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2004
Awsome pic, although the silver haired dude (for arguments sake Arthras) his torso looks really weird, it doesnt really have any shape. or it curves to much or something, it just looks weird.

and yeah, its is VERRY Warcraft III like, hell it even looks like Arthraras...
Tigerblock Featured By Owner May 31, 2004
Awsome artwork! Good ol' medieval politics.
vampiredraven Featured By Owner May 22, 2004   Photographer

otheas Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2004
It reminds me muchly of the seen of Falken/Dune from Escaflowne (the movie) holding his fathers head after removing it from his body o_o.. So yeah, thats just me v_v;

Exquisite piece of work, here. The expressions are just amazing.
baethory Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2004
..Reminds me of Warcraft 3. Maybe that's why you did it?

I love the expression on the decapitated head.

Oh my god, this is my favorite of your pictures I've seen so far! It's so beautiful and dark and morbid! I'm in love with that guy. His hair, his armor, his pose... he's perfect! XD The quality of the painting/shading is wonderous... hard to believe some people can use PS this well!
