Prince of Persia: Prince of Persia

Prince of Persia, Member Art


Artist Comment

Thought I'd start the new year with a bang...
unfortunately, I may have set up too high a standard for myself. I don't have the patience to do this kind of thing all the time. >_> Slow painting really isn't my thing, and this took a lot out of me. I've also had tons of bad luck with this...

Anyway, I have yet to play this game, but I love the art, so I thought why not?

Program: Lascaux Sketch
Tools: Touchpad
Time: 13 hrs, 7 min
Reference from Creative Uncut
(like I can draw like this without a ref... >_>)

EDIT: OMG. Highlight! Thank you!:D

I love the details in this painting, as well as the texture that DarthTofu has created, especially in the hat and and the claw designs. I also love his eyes, they're very mesmerizing, as if he can see through your soul.

Good work DarthTofu!

    Um... HOLY SHIT! Why isn't this elite? And why so few favs and no comments? D:
    This is beyond epic, Tofu.
    First off, it's Prince, and the new one for that matters, which rocks.
    Secondly, your painting kicks so much ass.
    Just wow....

    You. Got. Highlighted. YAAAAAYYY! Congratulations!
    Hehe, now for what you called the "epic comment of doom". LOL

    First, in the thumbnail, I am drawn in by the rich colours of purple and red, as well as the claw. Then, I got up close and wow, the textures are awesome. The details look so painstakingly painted, from the coils of the turban, the stray strings of cloth escaping from the folds, the gleam of well-worn metal, and of course, those sharp talons and those whirls carved into them. I've said this before, but his eyes are so intense, they seem to be staring at you, right out of the screen.
    The lighting shines nicely on them too, as if through winds of sand, casting glow on his skin, armour and gauntlet.. Rather like how the shadows were painted, accentuating the bridge of his nose, and bringing out the glint in his blue eyes.. Brr! I quite like the effect of cross-hatching, the texture it gives off is superb!
    The thin strokes also imply a windy background, successfully.

    By the way, did you enlarge this? ;) I didn't download the MT version just the DA one. :P And I'll fave. :) Hope I can reply, since I've been busy..

    Its AMAZING, its so accurate, and it looks exactly like the screenshot.

    You perfectly mimic the style that the new Prince of Persia had with its graphics. The brushstrokes along with the penmarks go VERY well with the sandstorm like effects in the painting. I love the amount of detail you added as well. The claw, the scarf, even the eyes are so accurate and yet beautifully mesmerizing. It certainly is a work of art. You should be VERY proud of this, considering that you cant get used to slow paced paintings. :)

    Beautiful and amazing work (hope this will make you happy)

  18. Kazenonatsu Jan 12, 2009
