The Battle with the Giant
Digital, 18”x24”, 2017.
The Story of the Art
Two brothers, who long adventured together, had entered the valley knowing the danger. The dwarves had warned them. But they had handled threats like this before. The older brother was a seasoned ranger and he had tracked the giant to its lair. But the monstrous adversary had still caught them by surprise, rising up from a hidden place among the trees. Sword drawn and magic at the ready, they prepared to fight. The younger brother, trained at Eredar, hoped his mastery of fire would be enough, and that his older brother could distract the creature for long enough to gather enough of the energy needed for the spell. The giant lifted an immense boulder over its head and the battle began.
