Death Mark - Dark Sun Painting

-Justin Sweet

This is a painting I did for Wizards of the Coast which was a redo (on my decision) of an earlier one that I felt wasn't what I was after. It ended up being way too late, so the former made it in. I'm still glad I re- painted it. I had to settle it. I think I painted this one 3 times.. I took some gritty photos of some of the stages. You'll notice in the early stage that I painted this on a canvas that had a drawing of The White Witch from the Chronicles of Narnia.

Final painting is 45x32.

This painting is currently on display at the Nucleus gallery. http://www.gallerynucleus.com/event/282

Here's the photo from the gallery, a bit contrasty. Lost some air. 



Thanks for looking.
