Legend of Sigurd by arvalis Legend of Sigurd by arvalis
Here is the final for my Digital Photo and Photoshop class. I was supposed to take a photo with a model of a mythological figure, but i asked if i could do a digi painting instead. Turned out pretty cool i think for the amount of work i put in. No concept sketches of the character, made him up as i went. Hope ya dig.


Photoshop: 7 hours

((I love this character. The detailing is so awesome, and the atmosphere is perfect. And... Sigurd Fafnesbane, youngest of the Volsungs!))

This is awesome!!! This must be Sigurd Sigmundsson, slayer of Fafnir from the Volsunga saga! I love how you did the background and the overall mysterious atmosphere. Detailing is very intricate.

Love it!!

It looks amazing!
the character design is great for not having
a concept stecth, and the choice of a dragon
for the mythological figure was a very
nice touch to this picture.
Nice colors too!
I cant believe i didnt fav. this sooner.
keep up the good work :thumbsup:

Digital Photo or the Illustrative Digital Imaging thingie class? I had a horrible teacher for that one that made us do dumb things like collages with old time-y clip art. -_-;

It was the Digital Photo and Photoshop class, my teacher let me do my own thing for most of it because the rest of the class was very new to photoshop and ive got quite a good grasp on it. We had to do collages too, but i did it in like 10 mins where it took the class an hour to do something that looked worse XD.

When you have to take "Illustrative Digital Imaging" (ILL 233), DO NOT take Tom Ellsworth. He's a very nice guy, and a great teacher for teaching kids how to use Photoshop for the first time, but absolutely horrible match for teaching people anything more advanced then that.

Get Mitch Gordon instead (I think that's how you spell his name) - much better teacher, but a little bit of a hardass I hear. He gives much more interesting projects too though. I was supposed to have him, but the school switched my teachers around at the last second. :(

very nice man, i'ma big fan of eched/emblazoned swords, very nice on that, ur face is cool(diggin teh lips and wrinkles mainly) i think it woulda been more awesome if ur light source was the dragon's mouth since he seems like an important part in teh piece aswell, plus ur actual lightsource seems like some random aura just placed there u know. idk just a thought haha, but yet coolio, always like ur gradient backgrounds

Noice. The muscles in his arms are especially well done. c:

The left-most part of the background's cool too - very aurora-borealis-esque. Dude, Are you still using CS3??

p.s Sorry I wasn't replying on MSN yesterday - I saw your message. Forgot to log out when I went to work. >.<
