Hilltop Encounter by Mr--Jack Hilltop Encounter by Mr--Jack
I knew I was gonna have to fit a Dunkleosteus in somewhere this month as soon as *lastscionz dropped his first prehistoric pic, so here we go!
Couple of things are a bit weird about this still, really should plan stuff out better before I start sometimes, but anyways! Still fun.

Colourwise riffing off Chris Rahn's wonderful Huntmaster of the Fells and also Petar Meseldzija's Legend of Steel Bashaw, which is fantastic.

About 3 and a half hours, or so.
Process is up here -

A great piece. I have my doubts that armoured fellow on horseback is going to fair well!

This scene is so alive to me! I can almost feel the earth rumbling as the creature moves in, the wind snapping through the knight's cape. I love the earthy colour palette, really makes the knight on the white horse stand out (whether as a symbol for 'good' or a symbol for 'let's kick some ayusss!' is up to the viewer, right? ;)).

I know it's based off dunkleosteus, but it still looks a lot like the sea monster boss from the last Turok game, though I'm willing to bet the dunk was a shared inspiration.

This is cool. I love the design of what I presume is a dragon with a Dunkleosteus in mind. I rather enjoy your take on it! I also like how you still have the attention of the piece focused on the knight and horse.

I love how the knight and his horse draw the most attention... it really highlights their bravery of facing such a monster!

You sir, destroy the boundary implied by Speed Painting
there is no detail, and at the same time that's what amazes me in your work.. the DETAIL!

it's like art between the strokes.
