Glad to see someone rendering a fantasy books character accurately. Excellent job on the Armour and it really captures the mood of the Von Bek.

En voyant ça, il me vient une envie de dessiner, pour m'améliorer, la route et longue camarades ... X_x

Encore et toujours dessiner, il n'y a que cela de vrai pour progresser.

Dude...I'm speechless...the color and feel of the illustration is amazing. It's been a while since i saw such a great watercolor, now a days its almost all digital so its nice to see a traditional artist so skilled.

Sorry but...YOU HAVE TO POST MORE WORK!!:D

Nice to see Von Bek outside of my own imagination. I consider "The Warhound and the World's Pain" to be one of Moorcock's best works; the novel certainly deserves more attention...

great use of watercolours, his armour looks fantastaic. I also like the idea of messy, yet simple background. good job :D

Your skill with watercolour is breathtaking!! I love the way the armor is rendered in particular, and his face is wonderfully expressive. Beautiful work!

Nice shading, and the colors rock too. Judging by the armor, this guy is probably fighting during the 30 years war.

Eh m$%&*...tu postes pas trop souvent, mais QUAND tu postes, ca fait mal!! Surtout celui là; je crois que c'est un des meilleurs trucs que j'ai jamais vu de toi...et j'en AI vus!! Franchement, les effets de lumière, l'ombrage, le jeu des couleurs...c'est HA-LU-CI-NANT! C'était un dessin pour le fun?

Merci beaucoup ND, ça fait plaisir. Même si c'est loin d'être aussi génial que tu le dis !

C'est un dessin que j'ai fait pour préparer un dossier à envoyer à des éditeurs de rpg français, US et UK dont on m'a passé des contacts intéressants. J'ai encore deux trois illus à faire et puis on verra bien...
