A Prayer to the Gods by BlackTalonArts A Prayer to the Gods by BlackTalonArts
Once again when I get time these days I like playing around with composition and light and if I'm lucky something comes of it (I'm a sucker for contrast).  yep, it's another male figure but damn...was quite happy with how he turned out.

I've neglected one of my new fav writers (hell I've neglected a lot of you :()...the talented Billy Shears who always finds a way to bring life to my art through the written word.  So I dedicate this image to him and his strength and beauty through words. 

Happy Monday to you all!

Gorgeous! I love the contrast too! It tells a story in black and white :) some of my favorite images are grayscale :) gives the imagination more time to play ;)

Holly crap, this is photorealistic. Maybe my brother, who has a very critical eye, could spot a telling detail that reveals it's 3D origins, but I can't. It almost goes without saying that the lighting is brilliant. Another stunning work, Mel.

Solid dude. I like the volume on the hand prints, just like a real paint or mud. Well done.

Remarkably lifelike and beautifully composed. I love the atmosphere you've created. It feels like a pause before something momentous occurs.

There is a really dry leather-like look to the skin that is something different but very appealing.
Looking at the textures on the clothing, weapon and hair, nothing seems to have a strong
specularity to it but it doesn't make the image look flat. There is a lot of variation in the greys
that keep the image looking interesting, highly detailed. How you did the backlighting with the
hair is exceptional, though! Perfectly executed!
