Black Knight by egilpaulsen Black Knight by egilpaulsen
Another painting with my wacom..
I hate drawing landscapes.. it is so boring. So you can see that i made a quick background. I enjoyed making the rider most.
This is the first time i paint a horse!

Time used: 3 hrs
Programs: Photoshop 7
Inspiration: Morgoth- LOTR

(Black Knight) "It's only a flesh wound..."... lol... bwahhaha... I love Monte Python... but I really like the way you used the highlights on the armor... The only thing I think you forgot was the reflected light on the armor... but other than that I like it... lol... later....

it looks realy good..

but...

(not that i can do beter or soming.. hehe;))

but.... i think the knight and hores are tho much bleded in on eachoter and the hores i to much blended in on the background ...also the helm is a bit.. yeah how to say ehm diffrend from normal fantasy helmets... and yeah the background isnt the best thing about the pics...

this is not to complain just to give you a idea what you might got do diffrend next time ..

and it still a kick ass drawin painting whatever..

the background is ofcourse as mentioned, pretty quick
thx

and the horse looks small if you look at the knight thats something you can get away whit a tail ...schould make the horse look litle biger and cooler...

i know that there alreay where coms on it.

but i just whanted to give you a tip on the horse as many ppl woud see it as ugly(the big knight and normal size horse.)

and if you ad a litle exstra to the knight you choud look realy good at the horse as its mostly so that the horse needs al litle extra to to make it look nice.(it dosent mater or its 100%corect in realytie its fantasy you know -__^) so i woud advies to give the horse a litle extra to. like a tail or soming.

as i seen this mistake for so many times.(its not realy a mistake but i prefer to call it that -__^ and i am a fantasy art fan for ofer 12 years so i know where im talking about ^__^)

But anyway im gone say it again nice work.
