RWBY-Nuckelavee by arvalis RWBY-Nuckelavee by arvalis
I was lucky enough to be asked by Rooster Teeth to do an official illustration of their villain character from RWBY, the Nuckelavee. I thought their design would be a super fun opportunity to do a Frazetta homage to the Death Dealer as the creature takes a similar role in the series. You can check it out on shirts here They also hired an artist to airbrush it on the hood of a car, thats pretty neat. You can check out that video here.


Photoshop CC: 35 hours

one of my favourite Grimm of the series, and a truly terrifying creature based on ancient mythologies

I remember reading about the Nuckelavee in some fantasy novel when I was a kid. Never seen a picture of it that captured the sense of "damn, this is so cool!" better than this one. Sweet!
