The Joust

What the world has been waiting for. I kinda like the way this one turned out. Couple of process shots included at no cost.

This is so wonderful. I love seeing how you built up the stone bricks on the lower half: hewn-shape, texture and colour, and then shadow.

And it took me a second to see the pig. Is it for a book? The space on the bottom seems to leave room for a title. It also makes the whole thing precarious and top-heavy in a fitting way.

This is marvelous! Your creativity and execution always blow me away. Extra points for that delightful pig snout shield and pince-nez holder. Thanks for sharing your artwork with us.

Bill, this is an excellent, thought provoking, beautifully rendered and fortunately not straight-forward representation of the known idea!!

Glendon-Thank you. No this is not for a book. I am just a top heavy precarious guy. Because My work often works in a sort of flat on, staged way I like to play with precarious design. And texture and surface are my drugs.
Rick- Thanks and your welcome.
(OvO)- Thank you and I couldn't resist that shield.
Tzong-Tyng-And the pig loves you right back.
Peet-Thank you and good to hear from you.
Petar-Thanks for stopping by and for your kind words.
Kyle-Thanks. This buys you brownie points.

I like the writhing black nameless horror at the bottom of the pit...a narly death for one of the knights!
Very cool, as always!
