      Hello!

      I am usually a voyeur at Deathfall, but eventually it got to me late last night (or should I say early this morning) so I was compelled to enter. I have been thinking long and hard but haven't yet had the epiphany that I have been waiting for, but know the some of the elements I wish to incorporate.

      Firstly the way I see it a Dragon has to be incorporated as this is to my mind the signatory creature of the D&D world. Camaraderie is also an important element to me and so is the troupe, and lets not forget the die. This image needs to be more than a few folk fighting a dragon though. I would prefer to take a more historical route, rather than the Saturday morning cartoon "Dungeons & Dragons" of the 80's (remember?). The goal would be to incorporate a memory, drawing on hundreds of years worth of dragon art as a basis of the image, taking a classical approach suitably modified for the here and now, with the final image having a sense of where it came from.

      The imagery of Bosch and Durer were the first to spring to mind as these are some of the strongest. This image ...

      http://www.nationalgallery.org.uk/cg...kNumber=ng6294

      ... of "Saint George & the Dragon" by Paolo Uccello, from the National Gallery London is also a good starting point for reference of some of the elements I wish to incorporate - the Paladin Knight versus the medieval personification of evil - the Dragon and the Maiden, however the notion of the chaste virgin may need a little modernisation :-)

      I'll go away now and start some sketches, hopefully work won't get in the way to much.

      Good luck to all.

      Hel

      The Knight, Death and the Devil

      I have used the Uccello painting (linked above) as a jumping off point, but I have decided to portray the scene allot differently and have modified the roles.

      The Knight - He would have expected to have killed the beast by his chivalry and goodness alone, well he's feck'ed it up, lance broken, he's had his chance and blown it and is now lying on his back, rather than standing over his quarry.

      Death - This role has been allocated to the lady, rather than have her standing back forlornly holding the leash, she is more involved coming to her companions aid, ready to administer the death blow. (It's 2005 who says chivalry is dead? )

      The Devil - well this would be the dragon - Black, he's a particularly nasty one, the epitome of evil. A knights greatest achievement would be to slay such a beast but this one's wise to dragon slaying ways. He snapped the Knights lance and has driven both horse and rider into the dirt. But I bet he wishes he had eyes in the back of his head!

      As mentioned in my previous post, my notion of incorporating the dice was an important aspect. Dungeons and Dragons has come a long way in its 30 years, and to symbolise the years I will incorporate a die for each year in the image, tucked and hidden away for the viewer to find. This image is going to be packed with symbolism :P

      That's the notion, right now to get it started.

      Oh yes, - The title "The Knight Death and the Devil" is based on my fondness for Durer's image of the same title, I keep returning to this image as the detailing is great and the Knight's not bad either!

      Shiney Shoes: today on principal I began with the bit that I hate - the Knights winkle pickers.

      I don't know how it was that women used to find men in a tin cans attractive, never mind the pointy shoes which I have found is is a huge turnoff with many females, myself included.

      But how and ever here's the shoes... there in need of a whole tonne of grime and gore, I'll see to that later!

      First of all, congrats... for the sketch. I liked its dynamics. Although U have refered to the old masters (Bosch, Durer, Uccello ect), I see some futuristic elements in your sketch. U have graduated fine arts, haven't U? I have!...

      My art education never included Dragons - LOL

      The sketch is a bit of a rough doodle as I wanted to get on with the 3d! One of my main reasons for entering the challenge is to achieve an image in a set period of time, as I have found myself getting lazy. If i can get anywhere near the mental image I have set, I will be happy.
