Awesome work! Somehow reminds me of the skyscraper boss in DMC 2 (terrible game, I know, but seems similar with the building coming to life and attacking you and all) and LOTR. Love the dark imagery and it's a fantastic concept as a whole!
That children is when I turned back around and journeyed to the beginning town where the king resided, walked right up to his kingly throne, and slapped him hard accross the face. After thoroughly beating the king who made the quest sound easy I looked at him square in the eye and said. "Mission aborted." I never looked back, and due to that being the main quest which can't activate without me, I thus saved the earth by doing nothing. The end.
This makes me want to write a story to go along with the picture. There's just an epic feeling to it that makes me think of the cover of a fantasy novel, or concept art for a movie or video game. I can just sense that there's a story being told here, and my imagination is trying to fill in the blanks.
Soooo Lord of the Rings-ish, I love it ! Looks like Gandalf fighting some demon at Minas Morgul. Very beautiful piece, the colours and lighting are amazing (that gloomy green light is what totally reminds me of Minas Morgul), and I love the simple yet so effective background with the black birds. Congrats on the DD !
