Summoning the Serpent by azhrarn Summoning the Serpent by azhrarn
Okay, I admit I skived. I was supposed to be doing work, instead I made this.

This was greatly, greatly inspired by Storm Constantine's Magravandias trilogy. Been wanting to do a picture based on those books for a while, but I haven't settled on a concept I really liked until now. So, here it is. :]

A close-up?

After seeing your gallery, I realized that I can't add all in my favorite, so I choose this one to add a comment because I love it, you have an incredible talent (yeah I think it's not the first time you read that, but who cares, it's always pleasing (I guess)) and I'm really impressed by your technique
So I'm gonna come back here, cause it is worth it
(and sorry for my english too, I'm french...)

this has been my favorite digital piece by far for years now. it's the background on most of my things. computer, iphone, etc :P

my girlfriend just saw it and as a fellow artist herself, she was blown away and immediately developed an intense lust/appreciation for the piece.

she then asked me if the person on the rock was a male or a female, and i realized it could easily go either way.

so now i'm asking you :P guy or girl?

Honestly this piece deserves all the comments it receives. You have such great skill and the detail is fabulous flawless. I love the combination of the colours you used to create the ocean sea. From the rocks in the background to the flying hair to the dragon ice-like creatures. Everything is a wow-factor. This is without a doubt one of my favorite pieces on deviantart of all time. What else can I say...?

Amazing work! I especially like what you did with the wet hair.

It's scary to think about the darkness of the ocean.
