A minute before he died by samsarraf A minute before he died by samsarraf
Since the Executioner got no face..
I used in this Illustration my character's face to show how frightening and scary the executioner is.
enhanced this feeling by the dramatic poses, the colors and the narrow tunnel. taking in consideration the boundaries of the movie theme and tone.
My target was to express the violence in an indirect way, and leaving the rest to the audience imagination. inspiring him with the name.

I think this one looks better. Changing the pose up makes it look more original.

Nice piece. I would crop just a bit off the right side to off-center the guy. And also push a secondary light source to show off more detail on the executioner

I really like this. The movement is perfectly done and the fear in the victim's face really matches the desparation of his escaping.

Thank you guys for the support and the nice words..
Well.. I usually start with a pencil sketch.. scan it.. then everything goes digital from that point..
I use Corel Painter. and Adobe Photoshop CS5.. With a Wacom intuos4 pen tablet..
"I sketched the executioner here digitally, since I had the pose ready"...

Thank you again guys.. wish you all a great luck

That is just an awesome drawing! I can tell by all the haters that this is the one to beat. Honestly...I too had never seen the character before...and this is a popular pose for him...but I just take that as his manarisms. I mean why change the "physics" of how he runs. Pure genius to have to have sparks coming off the ax... as this shows an athletic side to to this character. This guy would be starting in the NFL to be running that fast. I really feel that this captures the feel of the movie..and stays true to the character. I wouldn't worry about posing him another way to silence the haters. When you win this thing...I think that will silence them. What medium do you use to get these results...It almost looks like a mix of photoshop and an oil painting. Either way it does look like art. Thanks for leaving the gore to the imagination. I don't see it going well for this guy!

besides the executioner, there's more to this piece than that one figure. i love the lighting and the expression of the victim. the background is also well done; it has this glassy feel to it that seems to be creeping forward, following the executioner, ready to consume his victims. lots of drama, lots of thumbs up. bravo :)
