In nomine Patris, Corrado Vanelli (2D)
Title: In nomine Patris
Name: Corrado Vanelli
this is the cover of an Italian book with title 'In nomine Patris'.
It is a fantasy book that speaks about an universal war and fighting to save and preserve the life.
In the book there are many characters and on the cover there are the two protagonists (Reler and Breena) and the Angel of the death.
The book is very dramatical and bloody, so the author asked me to represent a scene in which there was blood, violence and a bit of melancholy.
The author is a very precise guy that sent me several detailed sketches for armours and weapon.
I have not used photo reference because the characters had to be very close to author idea.
As usually, it is totally made in Painter with my Wacom.
I'm waiting your comments!

I really like this piece and I like the overall composition. The looks on their faces and the angles of their heads, etc, remind me of the old liturgical paintings (such as old paintings you see in churches and the like). And I think that adds to the overall tone of the work. I also like the color palette you chose, especially based on the theme of the novel.
You did a great job! Thanks for sharing this with us.

Quite strong piece.
At first my eyes stuck on the details, have to say this is naturalistic in a way the human flesh interacts, nice job knowing the fact there were no references used. The lighting is great, as well. Nice composition trick that the light comes from where the main (male) character looks and the girl (weaker gender - who also need to be carried metaphorically (here literally)) is closest to the light source what could represent hope or life. Pretty cool concept. I assume it was fun to make besides the fact that you received solid directions... but that sometimes makes life easier.
Personally, according to my experience the more clearer the vision is the better the final result is...
Keep it up!
