Dove of War by portohle Dove of War by portohle
This is going to be the cover to a book by Bill Cain coming in 2012 called Dove of War about a modern day demon hunter named Basil Tobruck, nicknamed "Hato" (Japanese for Dove). He is the son of a 14th century Romanian warlord and a Japanese princess. He is a peaceful man forced into a life of violence, reborn again and again to fight his enemy, Vasilie. To fail would mean the end of the world.

Somehow, background screams "Dragon Age" to me... probably the color. Nice!

wow this came out really good, the way he stands and looks down. Has his weapons drawn, so anyone knows they can't surprise attack. They know he can kick ass, he looks so formidable. Very good.

Light source seems a little weird at times - and more then a little inconsistent, but great work! Love the sheer amount of detail, or at least texture and great shading, that you've managed to fit into this, and overall it just really pays off! Not to mention you'd have to be living under a rock to not be able to compare this to bioware's "Dragon Age" backgrounds.

So hey, brilliant work :D

I would prefer to call the light source complex, but maybe I should call it abstract, lol. The light sources are sort of fighting each other for a piece of him.

Holy moly.

I love love love love his skin, and all the textures, and the blood effect for the background.... This is pure awesome, I can't find anything wrong with it. (besides the fact that it makes me want to suck the skill out of you.)
