Hammerswing by MagicalViper Hammerswing by MagicalViper
I was thinking about doing some artwork in fantasy style. After some brainstorming with my brother we choose to do something in viking/thor style. From my previous work I've learned that it's better to make some sketches of how the artwork will be before taking the actual photo. In that way you get an idea of the complete composition and the relation of the model with the rest of the stuff in the artwork.

This photomanipulation is created in photoshop. It has a lot of digital painting on it which is done with my Wacom Bamboo. I love to combine digital painting with photomanipulations. Works pretty well :D!

Here's the before and after version: [link]

Wow, the lighting on this is simply marvelous(I need to learn that). I also like the composition an the pose. My only gripes are that I think the arms need work(dunno, seem a tad long to me) and that I think he should be fighting something. Aside from those minor things, this is an absolutely wonderful piece. I hope i get this good someday. Keep it up!

Preety sweet, I like the way you handled the skin and the cloth with the lightning, the armor/hammer could use a bit more of a metalic texture and to make it look more consistent with the rest of the viking

Ive used the same technique a few times (manip/painting) and I have to agree, the results come out good.
