St George

Post by TmDurn7 » Tue Sep 16, 2008 9:16 am

Hi guys. This was done for a Dragon themed illustration project my friends and I were participating in. I like to sort of put myth in modern time and this kinda juxtaposes the traditional story of St George and the Dragon and a modern rehappening of the same event. Hope you guys dig it. Later.

Oh yeah, I can dig it! Great stuff, it's just a little minimalistic is all at points, could use a bit more sprucing up, but of what there is it's very nice.

dude, I gotta disagree Dark.. if anything this is the opposite of minimalistic. It looks awesome. The attention to detail in the background is pretty much amazing...

Nono, I love the detail, it's just in terms of what is shown. It's just a boy with a sword, a tapestry and a shadow, but the detail in these three things is great. Sorry, should've made myself a little more clear on that :)

thanks a lot for the words guys. about the minimalistic background, i wanted to keep it pretty much white to avoid any sort of specificity of place. i think if i were to do that then it would make it sort of like one step closer to being purely representational, if that makes sense. then again, i guess the effectiveness if debateable
