Mage battle by sandara Mage battle by sandara
edit : 13 june 2014
touched up image again.

I had to do a live demo on Saturday at the SIT Open House at orchard rd. Since I had to paint on the spot, I decided to go with something in my comfort zone.

Took me about 4 hours, plus 1 hr+ of tweaks later at home. Kinda really generic, but eh.. XD

To those who have written me notes and comments, I am so sorry, i will try to reply soon. I am just so busy this month. ^^;;

Cryomancer VS Pyromancer? Pretty even match if you ask me unless we're counting ice beats fire, or ice melts and becomes water that extinguishes fire.

anyway, the music added to it on youtube (youtu.be/lZIm3uJfWVk) makes it even more epic! 
little question: how'd you come up with this?

this is by far my favorite out of all your drawings because it shows two people and two beasts which gives it more variety.

I saw this on Adrian Von Ziegler's Youtube channel. He used it as a background for his song "Arch Rivals". This is stunning work.

Even though it is generic, i.e. random mage battle, there is still a story in the details, and as others have said, it is nice to see such a fight that uses magical creatures rather than slinging fireballs.

I love the contrast of colors, the obvious differences between the two, and the detail - as well as the obscurity that allows the viewer to interpret the scene.

And the fact that you did it in 4 hours (plus tweaks) on the spot is amazing and mind-boggling.
