  • Elric Artwork

    This is my first traditional oil painting. The title is "Summoning Arioch" featuring the scene when Elric summons Arioch to his plane (Chapter: To call the Chaos Lord). He's tangled on the floor, completely exhausted from the summoning process. Arioch feeds him with the first strength and lifts his arm.

    In my first painting of Elric I wanted to show his weakness, in the next artwork he will be much stronger. I'm very much looking forward to it.

    My whole life as an artist will be devoted to the Elric series and the breathtaking scenes I've seen there when I read the books. This artwork is just a start on a long journey following Elric in his adventures.

    My last post was about a year ago with my artwork "Servant of Arioch", I'm very happy to show you my first take on Elric.

            I love it but wierdly or perhaps by design it reminds me of some of the old pictures of Christ being taken from the cross or perhaps a painting of St. Sebastian

                Very nice! I agree with the "Christ being taken from the cross" feel... he definitely looks exhausted.

                  Thank you very much for your feedback :)! It's very interesting, that it has a touch of "Christ being taken from the cross" for you. When I paint I have a look on paintings of the old Masters for reference on skintones and composition. It's amazing to explore their use of colours and examine their compositions of amazing, complex scenes. For me they are the pioneers of todays fantasy art.

                    Whoa!
                    Just saw this thread Andrea.
                    What a truly amazing painting and very similar to how my own head saw this scene.

                      I was just looking at this again, and I noticed the large shadow over Elric's torso... indicating a large "tentacle" overhead, unseen in the picture.

                          Wonderful picture, Andrea, and such a welcome change from the macho sword swinging stuff you mostly see (not that there aren't some good examples in that mode!). Many thanks for sending it!
