Rain of Blades by kingmong Rain of Blades by kingmong
Apart from Warhammer, I have been working with other fantasy clients, one of such is Paiso Publishing. I was fortunate to be able to be part of the team that delivered artworks for "Path Finder".

I immediately jumped at this piece cause of the description, "Rain of Blades". Being influenced from Hong Kong comic since young, drawing a million swords from one guy's moves has been something I had always wanted to try. So here goes... :D

Used the palette knife brush from before to generate the sense of motion of the piece, do hope you guys enjoy it.

Cheers.

I really like this...... I like the amount of knives falling, and the fact that he has an inscribed back-up blade in his hand just in-case you survive the rain!

this is marvellous, i love the idea of the power of summoning a hale of sharpened iron from the heavens. Although...

hmmm, not that i can say much to someone at you're level of prowess, although if i was to critique it, i would say that you could of generated more epic scene, i would suggest a lower camera angle if possible, closer towards his feet, more of the sky so that you can see the multitude of swords raining from the heavens. I would also suggest a bit more motion in the falling swords, maybe you could use more vertical strokes for the finger guards, or even a varied general motion blur, probable reference from photographs taken at a low shutter speed, you know that blurred ghostly visage that appears behind and sometimes in front of a directional object? Although i might be interpreting you're aim of the "sense of motion" incorrectly. :hmm:

I apologise if i meant any offence.

That's exactly what I was going to say. It's great as it is, but the piece could still be tweaked to convey an even more dynamic scene.
