Troll Crossing, Michael Dashow (2D)

Title: Troll Crossing
Name: Michael Dashow
Country: USA
Software: Photoshop

I actually finished this piece before my recently-posted CGChallenge entry 'Wandering Monsters,' but wanted to wait 'til it was okay to make it public: It was done for an article in 'ImagineFX' on using Photoshop to do palette composition. Now that the article is out (December 2007, Issue #024) I can finally post this... but if you want to see the entire process of how this came to be, check out IFX!

Nice one once again Michael!! Super lighting!

Just fantastic! I can't wait to see the article.

Brilliant image! I love the styling, colours, and overall composition. Great characters, especially all the different trolls. Great use of lighting from the staff too... very dramatic! Fantastic work!

Great job, the colors are perfect! 5* from me keep it up!

Hey there Michael,
Great to see this piece unleashed in the forums. My jaw dropped open when I spotted it with the excellent accompanying tutorial workshop in the Imaginefx mag, which I get on subscription. The image and the workshop are both top notch stuff. Worth the price of the mag for that alone. Always a joy to see one of your seemingly effortless, complicated compositions, full of humour and great drawing.

More power to you.

Fabulous, Michael! I love how you always manage to convey a touch of humour in your work. Great palette and super job as always.

Nice to see a girl warior wearing clothes.

I've been imagining a picture of a fanticy heroin in the traditional skimpy bikini armor and an big sword standing next to a Paladin in full plate and the two are facing a hord of baddies (orcs, goblins whatever). The title is "Men are such cowards."

Such maticulous work, kudos michael!
The composition looks like there would be text up top. Is it a cover of some kind?
