Swamp Ambush_2 by 88grzes Swamp Ambush_2 by 88grzes
Hi there!

I decided to paint over one of my really old pieces.
I really like the idea of this one so I tried to capture the mood, like for the first time 
Anyways I hope You'll like it!

PS. this tooks me around 3h.

PS.2. I see a lot of comments about who or what my inspirations was in the first place. So basically this suposed to be Geralt the Witcher :D but because he's so "small" You can't tell exactly ;p


Here's a link to the old version:

W tej pracy bardzo fajnie się zawierają te klimaty wiedźmińskie. Typowo mroczniejsze fantasy - ciemne mokradła nocą i śmiałek, może też zabójca potworów jak nasz Geralt i złowieszcza bestia przyczajona tuż za jego plecami. Nie mogłem z czystym sumieniem przejść obok obojętnie znając troszeczkę gry o wiedźminie (coś mnie nie utrzymało przy nich na dłużej, chociaż uważam, że to na prawdę dobre gry;)).
Pierwsza praca też bardzo fajna, trzeba jej tylko poświęcić nieco więcej uwagi z racji tego, że wizja jest bardziej mglista.

Można wiedzieć, ile lat w tym fachu siedzisz?

I think the beast could use a little bit of work.
But the image as whole is brilliant, and definitely better than before.

Ostatnio przypomniała mi się książka z dzieciństwa - "Braci Lwie Serce", i pomyślałam sobie z tej okazji, że mało widziałam naprawdę przerażających smoków. Ten naprawdę daje radę. :D (A do tego, oczywiście, fantastyczne wykonanie).
