Whoops, I mean *Dirk* the Mighty, the shapeshifting tree ogre from Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire. See here: [link]

In his tiny form he looks like the guy on the left, and in his tree ogre form, well, he looks like the guy on the right. :P

(Thag the Mighty was the homage I made to him as a brief NPC in Dungeons and Dragons.)

From his reaction, I'd say he's either a super sayajin, or he's scared shitless.

This really looks like an epic battle, the villain looks a bit like a mutated Ganondorf (not Ganon), maybe an idea how a Legend of Zelda game would look like if the setting would be in our time :)

in your paintings i like the feeling you put in characters, where relatively smaller persons are standing close and not afraid from big and raging mythical beasts. such a powerful feeling!

This is just...stunning. The intense atmosphere, the moody colours and lighting, the layout, the boy's pose...there's such a story in this one image, and you find youself desperately wanting to know more. What is that entity? Who is the boy? What's so special about that sword he's holding? What led them both to this moment? Sadly I imagine you don't have an answer to these questions, but that just makes the image even more compelling.
I actually have this as my desktop background XD Truly awe-inspiring work.

A climax scene between two beings, a giant of a man, ferocious in appearance pitted with a human, while small and frail his appearance alone suggests inner strength, while his fearless stance cements that concept. The dark palette is effective despite the limited selection, working well with the lighting offered by the creature and surrounding fires.

Great work sandara, consistent quality as always.
