    I love the dynamics but I would add some highlights to the face of the beast.

    didn't really like the first compostion the more I worked on it the more I struggled with it. Of course I would have liked drawing Geralt face... but meeh I'll get vesimir's face instead ;) + this feels more like the ingame experiance. so Double win! + I much preffer this composition, has stronger lines = triple win.

    The gryphon face looks awesome :D
    Just a question, I've not played Witcher, so is that other guy behind the gryphon an enemy?

    http://i.imgur.com/pbZQt1F.jpg it will be Vesemir, master witcher of the wolf school. Teacher and father figure of the main protagonist Geralt. He's pretty gawd damn badass as well.

    The references are gameplay shots or wallpapers?

    big mash up of many things.

    [​IMG]
    liked this composition a lot + I really like his overal stance since it's an ingame stance as well, so decided to build from it.
    The light and atmosphere comes from a mashup of ingames screenshots I took with slight photoshop editing... they are from the exact spot the battle with the gryphon happens (the Mill would be on the right side if the picture was bigger)(for now... I'll photobash the BG later with real life pictures and paintover)

    Liked a lot how the gryphon pawes were positionned in that piece, so took inspiration from it again.

    for the face.

    based myself from this picture and proportions + getting inspired by the overall rendering of the promotionnal advertisement.
