nice dark piece. it's hard to say "one of my favorites" but I think it would have to be, everything down to the details (glowing seal, woodwork of the doors), you are practically a master at your craft.
I started drawing armor myself after checking out an illustrated Knight book (think it was called "Knights"), anyways, I think I might have gone the same route as you had I the passion I imagine you have for these paintings and a quite bit more skill and practice of course
This is an unusual peice. The colors portray a commanding sense of presence, but the frailty of the figure somewhat negates from it. However, it does serve as a sufficient focal point for an effective composition.
Jason, you continue to be my favorite artist. I purchased your book the other day and i love it. Please keep up your work, I love the lavish settigns you use and this picture is, as all others have said, Bad ass
Nice work again Jason... You have very good artistic taste i must say. I see you have honed the style a lot and you really know what you are doing. While you can do this amazing art one thing what you could try is to go more detailed dimensions. Like more details more what you now do more more more...
But if your style is this, well you do it with extreme talent.
