Art! Possibly unfinished art, but art nonetheless. I drew this quite a while ago, probably around last spring (of 2006, not 2007) when I was in the Medieval Epic and Romance class. This is Siegfried from the Nibelungenlied. He bathed in the blood of a dragon and became invincible, except for the spot on his back where a linden leaf had fallen while he was bathing. This became, as you might guess, his downfall. Dun dun DUNNN.

This was also one of my first forays with my tablet (the old one, actually).

I don't know if I want to shade it or leave it flat color. I spent forEVER trying to get his back to look realistic - used photographic references and everything. I'm not really sure now how I think it came out, as a whole.
Current Mood: unsure

Due to technical difficulties...the image isn't showing up! :(

After a bit of investigating, I found the URL of the image and tried that. Photobucket says: "This file no longer exists"

It should work now, if you refresh :) Photobucket does weird things to me occasionally.

Hmm, I like the flat color. It seems like it would work as a front piece or even a cover for a book.

Thanks for the feedback :) That's a really cool idea! *dreams of having her art on an edition of the Nibelungenlied*

The first in a series of pieces?

It could be! Hmmmm...

There's so much of your art that I haven't seen. I really like this. The flat color works and his back looks very realistic. I like the way that he has his arms wrapped around himself. It's kind of gross to think of someone bathing in blood, but in this case, it's also kind of cool. I agree with merrick42 that this would make a wonderful book cover. I thought it even before I read his comment.

Thank you! ^_^ It is a little gross *laughs* I tried to draw his hair as if it were all wet and sticky. Hehe.

It looks like it is. Sort of drippy with blood.

Yay! That was the effect I was going for :)
