I know what you would want to change - the bricks Otherwise I really like the concept It reminds me song [link] This paladin looks really immortal, such a hero hidden under his cloak You've put a lot of work into the light reflections here - I enjoy it especially on the blade. His armor is tremendously detailed, even the rings of chainmaille connected and cloth has pattern and fraying threads. The orcs in the background make great atmosphere and are positioned greatly as well as the demonic face, which gives very scary impression btw
Thank you for the link to the music, that was really awesome. And yes, those bricks are really blurry, I would rework them (and the ground) gladly if only the client would let me know the book its still going to be published (still isn't after many years now). I might even fix the image up just for the sake of it. I was still learning to paint when I did this so the fix would be pretty easy now.
I wanted to ask about the book name Pity it wasn't published yet.. its cover would look very promising about the content Yes, the bricks, ground and part of cloak is too blurred, but the rest is wonderful and very precisely painted, so don't say you were just learning.. you were already perfect
