Prince of Persia by invent-a-shell Prince of Persia by invent-a-shell
Had to re-upload cos I forgot the prince's scar! :P

It's for the Prince of Persia contest (UK res only). The prizes include an Xbox 360 and an A5 Wacom and seeing as i've never had a games console in my life (i'm 24; old!) and my cheap fake-Wacom graphics tablet is on it's last legs, I thought it would be a competition worth doing. :P

Factoid: Mainly painted to the sounds of 90's rave classics e.g. The Shamen.

Traditional Media. Acrylics on board.

This is truly an incredible image! I loved the 2008 Prince of Persia game and I hope that Ubisoft will make a sequel to it!

THIS IS GORGEOUS! I also ive you mega infinite props for using acrylic in this age of digital paintings. It makes such an amazing difference - the rough texture you get in your brush strokes really adds so much to the painting, and fits the game. LOVE IT

This strikes me as a really interesting picture. I really loooove the interplay between texture and color. There's so much to look at in this picture, and yet it's still unified and very bold. I think what's most interesting is how the two people mimic eachother in pose and expression, and yet they are very, very different from eachother. And of course, the moon light is lovely. That greenish valley is really sweet. One of the best pictures I've seen in a while, for sure!

Very good! I love style but also hate it in a way, if that makes sense. Does it?
