About the Piece:

Hidden away from the world of men, an Ominous Night shrouds the dark towers and massive walls of this ancient castle. Overlooking the still depths of a silent lake, the castle and its inhabitants await those foolish enough to enter, and fear those destined to confront the castle’s evil.  This piece has its origins in another piece of mine, which served as an excellent starting point, but lacked the refinement that I achieved with this work.  Reminiscent of the foreboding architecture from a popular video game series, the darkness emanating from the castle has such reach, that its evil presence is even reflected in the very face of the moon.

The original sold at Dragon*Con 2006.

About the Artist:

Paul and his brother Michael opened Aradani Studios in 2002, selling both their artwork and costuming as they travelled all across the US. Paul’s medium of choice is charcoal, a passion he discovered in college. He loves the fluidity of it, the ease of moving it across the page with a simple gesture, and on the flipside, the challenge of it, such a simple gesture can also erase hours of painstaking detail. Paul’s work has won numerous awards around the country, including the prestigious Chesley Award in 2006, for Best Monochrome Unpublished for his piece Nightmare. He currently resides in Nashville, TN, where he, his brother, and sister continue to expand and build their elf ear empire. You can see his artwork at
