Burn Goblins burn by TARGETE Burn Goblins burn by TARGETE
One more BW interior illustration created for a kids book. Pretty violent hunh?

Created with photoshop, I used a few techniques to get it to look more traditional, using textures etc.

This is one of the sickest things I have ever laid eyes on in my entire life. So METAL. Keep it up, fellow lover of lighting and detail.

On a serious note, The thumbnail says the most for this piece, hands down. I am not saying I don't love every deep cut in to the shadows, or that I don't recognize the immaculate play of lighting effects on EVERY SINGLE FIGURE within the piece (from front to back, really that is one of my favorite parst of this all around) - OR the seamless yet profound transition between fire from beast to man ( on a conceptual level this grabs me the most (zoomed in)) BUT:

The thumbnail is so damn powerful. It pulled me in like an oasis in the middle of a desolate plane of quick art in a sand storm. A sea of ambiguous-ness providing the needed contrast for me to know that this was going to be added to my favorites before I even clicked on it.

Enough descriptive masturbation; the thumbnail itself held such dynamic shapes and transitions alone - I knew before I zoomed in that I would be pleased, and I think that is something I can say about a majority of the art that I have come to know through the medium of the internet. After all, isn't DeviantArt a place where we are judged on our thumbnails? (Sad But True)

To sum up a long winded comment, I want to say that I really enjoyed the way that the thumbnail version of this pulled me in; and how the full size of the piece was NOT disappointing once I did find myself zooming in.

Thanks, and keep it up.

Wow, that's a hell of a kid's book.

I love seeing this sort of stuff in kids books... Funny bunnies with little pink scooters are no way to entertain people.

Meh, Goblins are not people so it isn't REALLY violent. It's just teaching kids responsibility: Clean up your room when it gets dirty, wash your hands, and burn all goblins when they get uppity and start causing problems. :)

Very cool. I love a good battle scene. Not to many people are willing to do these.
