Captain Bathory by michalivan Captain Bathory by michalivan
This is a cover for a fantasy book(J.Cervenak: Dablova Pevnost [link]). Published in Czech Republic.

The theme was a classical fantasy fight between the main hero and a black arabic deamon warrior. For the weapons and the armor I did get reference from the author.

I wanted to try more realistic approach and use less saturated colors than usual. Was really fun to do and I learned a lot as well.

Done in Photoshop

Would have been more awesome if the guy in the hat had that flintlock pistol drawn whilst swinging his sword.  Lol epic work by the way:D
