Bracing for Battle by AaronMiller Bracing for Battle by AaronMiller
photoshop

This was a study for a painting that I might pursue in the future.

Our heroine has picked up a sword of one of her fallen comrades to fight for her life. She isn't one to carry a sword but she will not be taken without a fight.

You'll notice she's looking up more than ahead. Her adversary is no small foe.

Nice work on that mouth! It really sells the expression. The rendering on the fingers is nice too.

Good stuff, guy!

I'd love to know the story behind this one. She looks scared, yet she's about to impale someone. Great work.

that's the part i need to capture for every painting so if it lands on a book cover you want to maybe pick it up and read it. so i've heard about this very piece from Pyr Books.
