SEGA's VIKING - Hel, Michael Kutsche (2D)

Title: SEGA's VIKING - Hel
Name: Michael Kutsche
Country: Germany
Software: Painter, Photoshop, XSI

Hel, Skarin's evil opponent from the recently released Sega/The Creative Assembly title Viking: Battle for Asgard.
The task was to achieve a rather realistic and more detailed feel of the in-game character. Since it was used for life-size standee prints, the artwork has an extremely high resolution, it was a challenge to bring in all the details while preventing from a too stiff and unnatural look with that huge size. 95 percent done in Painter X and Photoshop CS3, only the chain whip is 3d.

I could have sworn the shadows and reflections came from 3d too.

Wow, well done!
Very nice work

Love everything about it, but mostly the heels! Your painting is phenomenal, every one of you pieces is absolutely top tier. I just joined but I've been lurking a while and admiring your work since I first found the site.

Can't wait for the next one!

kutsche, you've given the figure in your piece perfect weight, balance and stance.
Great job!

wow, extremely realistic! Great lighting and that character has an amazing texture over her skin and outfit. Just stunning.

Fantastic rendering. I really like the way you handled the light hitting the whip. The body is great also. Solid
