Ares by jarling-art Ares by jarling-art
Hi ALL!
This is my first public upload in 2010, I know wasn't much around last year, but I had such a lot to do that I just ran out of time to be active in the online galleries. However I hope this will change this year as I don't want to do that much comissions this year, well, at least this is the plan :-))), let's see if it works :-).

Ok, I did a bunch of illustrations for the Rolemaster Rulebooks published from “13 Mann Verlag (13 man publishing)” here in Germany. As it is seldom enough that you can do cool fantasy art for German publishers and the guys for 13 Mann Verlag are really nice people I wanted to do some good looking pieces. The problem only was the budged, they are a small publishing house so they couldn't spent too much for an illustration (still more than you get for most CCG art pieces). To make it short I wanted to do some really complex looking illustrations even for less money, but I couldn't spent to much time for them.
For this reason I decided to work mainly 3d using Poser and Vue. It helped a lot, Vue was awesome to get cool mass scenes in no time using some poser figures I posed in Poser as eco system in Vue. Than I just added some DAZ stuff and voila the illustration wwas more or less done. At the end I brought the whole things into Painter and did some (OK, OK, not just some) over-painting here and there to give the whole thing a bit more painterly look .
I'm extremely satisfied with the results (the client by the way as well, I got great praise from the publisher).
I never had been able to do something like that in such a short time if I worked only 2d and had to sketch and paint all the things.

Ok you see the result above, I really would be interested what you think. Do you like it even there is so much Poser and bought DAZ stuff obviously involved in the illustration? Give me your thoughts!

To all I didn't speak before, have a great 2010!

Cheers
-Uwe

Amazing imagery! This is how I would picture Ares standing over a battle, pleased at how battle is waged and won.

Using Daz/Poser figures is fine in my opinion. It's just another tool for artists to use as far as I'm concerned.

The DAZ and Poser are visible in the image, but only just; all told, it's a very sweeping and epic piece. Just the sort of thing the God of War would do, I think.

On that subject, though, I notice that his helmet resembles a Roman Centurian's helm, and his spear looks a lot like the Roman pilum. His shield isn't exactly like the scutum, but it's certainly something an auxiliary might carry. Basically, what I'm saying is: perhaps he's more "Mars" than "Ares"?

Just a thought; nothing I just mentioned detracts from the image itself! Still very enjoyable.

Hey there! I wanted to let you know that, because this was the most appropriate picture we could find, my little brother wanted to use it for his Greek project at his sixth-grade class! If you'd like to see the documentation, or picture of it since it has to be featured on a poster board, we can show you! We will give you full credit and the source where to find it!

Amazing work, I really like all of your images! They have something that reminds me of old D&D images ('80s, '90s) that I really miss seeing around the web!

First off... Great Scene!! I would although respectfully suggest 3 alterations if I may.. as mentioned the smudge on the Helmet's Plume is one. The direction and volume of the Black Smoke (just doesn't sit right if you ask me). Finally and most importantly..Ares pose. His body looks way too relaxed and maybe Id like to see him have a firm grip on his shield as well? Just suggestions. But crits aside, Its still a stunning complete piece of art. But what I really really love is the sick look of satisfaction of blood lust on his face. I think you nailed it! Keep it up!!
Ares Dominus!

The thing is; you are able to let the DAZ, Poser 3d work look better, or better said: you make good use of it as a reference, instead of relying too much on it, this makes this an awesome outstanding piece.
