Hunting the Prey by Lutherniel Hunting the Prey by Lutherniel
This painting is a scene from "Faith & Fire" book by James Swallow done for :iconmrf56:


Here's an excerpt that I used as base for this scene:

"Miriya aimed low, not at the place where the shadowy killer was lurking, but at the racks of ancient papers beneath. The plasma gun shrieked and cast flares of brilliant white light into the aged, dry tomes. The conflagration was instant, sending a sheet of fire up towards the rafters. A scream pealed through the air, and there atop the racks was the assassin, framed by orange flames, clutching at its face. Miriya had only a moment. <...>


This was a fun piece to work on and I'm glad to have the chance to :)

I just remembered this art just as I was reading over that part. I knew I knew it from somewhere.

Great sense of movement! This picture really gives a feeling of motion and momentum. It's impressive when someone can look take a still image and make it look alive and active!

This has real energy and life to it, the coloring is gogeous and the overall feeling is of exuberant battle. You should be working for GW :)
