Immortal by JLarenART Immortal by JLarenART
Kings will rise and kings will fall...
But only sorrow is eternal...



Not sure how everyone will respond to this, but I'm proud of it. This took the most extensive post-work to date, and was the most technically difficult piece I've done so far. The hardest part was creating the cape using only airbrush and parts of the render... to make it cloth-like and not stupid looking was a bit hard.

The print is excellent.... I recommend 10x10 or 20x20 :P
Enjoy!

Oh yea, this entire piece was made using this render: [link]


:: Full-view is a must as always!
:: Made with Apophysis (custom flame)
:: Composed in Adobe Photoshop CS2
:: Print should be available shortly..


*Update after submission: fixed the black smudges that weren't supposed to be near the top sides of the crown... thanks to xfierax!
Update part II: this image was cleaned up and refined on 8/18/06, thanks to a new monitor. A *NEW* B&W version is now available on my other account, see here: Immortal - BW

oi... amazing one!!! just one little thing: the background is a little bit poor.. I think that gray and black is not the right thing to be there.. I think that you could work a little bit more on this one and make an amazing background, just like the Immortal itself...

The subject is the point, not the background - but sure I could have done more. Feel free to do something like this and then create a better background :)

Thanks a lot :D

Actually, I copied, cut, reshaped and recolored certain pieces of the render to make it look this way... if you view the scrap in the description the gradient was rather bland! But I find the best way to leave myself great color control is to use a mostly grey gradient.. as that can be tinted to almost any shade.

Haha hello there! I love the enthusiasm.
I'm not quite sure I've topped Sauron (yet).. and probably never will =P

Thanks a lot though, and best wishes for 2007.

I always thought the original render was a bit boring and blah to look at it... it's amazing what you can do with color balancing and a bit of imagination :mwahaha:
