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).

Clearly this man was never a Boy Scout. 

At fist, I take the explorer's point of view, but I am overwhelmed by how inadequate his position is.  So I move on to the serpent's POV and think "I should rotate my head 90 degrees and try to keep that sharp toothpick from getting wedged in my front fangs this time.  It's too bad he didn't bring a horse for a little dietary variety.  I wish they didn't have those tough shells..."
