The Beastmen Glade by AdrianBorgnine The Beastmen Glade by AdrianBorgnine
The unholy glade of the Beastmen, with a Wargor, Bray Shaman, Chaos Warhound, Minotaur, two Gors, Ungor and many minor monstrosities.Warhammer fantasy battle.
Plagued not only with the everchanging energy of chaos, but also with the curse of the spiral.

Inspired heavily by the Qliphoth from manga "Berserk".

I know, I always has been making Bretonnians, but there was this one lecture some time ago when I wanted to draw something to not fall asleep, and I was out of references - so I couldn't make any horses - wchich was the next one in the quee for the brets. And so I made something I could always draw - chaos, with all it's twisting and monsters.

I also dared myself to mix the Warhammer reality with the idea of the curse of the spiral. After reading Junji Ito's manga Uzumaki one can never look at the spiral the same as before reading it. It's nothing strange that when I wanted to add some horrifying and disturbing elements I had just twisted some twigs and helixed the horns.

And think that I was going to advance slowly with my Warhammer oriented ink works... Last one's advancements were putting two people at the same time and adding a mere line of grass as the background. Hehe. And now this is the most intricate drawing I have ever made. Took a crapload amount of time to finish several stages of sketches, the lineart and the shading.
Funnily enough, about half of the shading was made when I was sleep deprived.

Done with pens of various companies, ranging from 0.1 to 0.8, on a technical A4 paper.

This is really reminiscent of the artwork found in the old Chaos books from the late 80's/early 90's, "Slaves to Darkness" and "Lost and the Damned".
Those were really evocative and characterful pieces, and this follows suit splendidly!

Thanks! I especially worked with that, trying to make the herdstone glow and all, so it's good to hear someone appreciate it.

And all of them were given only about 3-4 days after the submission. Yes, deviantart is a weird place.
And thank you very much, by the way ;)

Szkoda tylko, że przez pracę nad tym muszę teraz uzupełniać zeszyt z HAPu.

Nie przeszkodziłoby ci jakbym spróbowała to pokolorować?

Z przyjemnością! Chętnię zobaczyłbym co jesteś w stanie z tego wykrzesać.
Jeżeli uznasz, że było by ci łatwiej, mogę wgrać też samego linearta.

Miło mi też, że ci się podoba.

Poczytałem "Uzumaki"... nie wiem dlaczego ale jakoś zajeżdża mi Lovecraftem XD
Osobiście jak się nudzę na wykładach to jednak odsypiam... sypiam też jak się nie nudzę... może dlatego, że z braku sprzętu nie mogę się zająć niczym pożytecznym :P

I właśnie dlatego co niektóre rzeczy Lovecrafta znajduje się na mojej liście "want to read". A na wykładach wolę jednak słuchać, bo czuję się zobowiązany do zbierania wiedzy - w końcu mamy się z niej wykazywać na koniec semestru.

Łaaa... Drzewo z przyległościami po prawej moim idolem. I w ogóle to podziwiam, chyba nawet mnie by się nie chciało xD

A ładnie to tak na hapie nie uważać? Pani profesor by Cię prześwięciła xDDD

Duże dzięki. Tak już mam, że czasem lubię się pomordować przy jednej pracy przez kilkadziesiąt godzin.
A odnośnie pani profesor - tylko zyskałem tym rysowaniem - nie zasypiałem i przynajmniej jednym uchem mogłem słuchać. Jakbym nie rysowował, to bym spał i w ogóle bym nie słuchał...

Thank you very much. Yes, it took a crazy amount of time, but most of it was during lectures on the university, so I didn't waste much of it. ;)
