The Shadowlords

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

The three Shadowlords of Ultima fame. Well, actually, it started out as Gandalf facing the Ringwraiths on Weathertop, but my inspiration mutated as I painted. But feel free to view it as either version. This is one of my older acrylic works, on 8.5x11 standard paper. I have gained a new appreciation for trying to do detail work with lousy brushes (there's a REASON why they're just silhouettes :P ). I tried several new techniques in this one : The old toothbrush-speckle trick (naturally I sprayed myself instead of the painting with it at first) and I also fingerpainted the clouds! :)
