Full version of the painting I took the above image from. I borrowed inspiration for the background from the Shadow of the Beast boxart. I botched the guy big time and made him look like either a midget or a little kid, but because of the method in which it was painted - the background is made up of glazes over black and white streaks, but the trees and figures are full paint - I couldn't correct him. Acrylic on canvas, actual size 40" X 30"
I did this one just before the above one, with the most notable change being Ruka sporting a rigid, scorpion tail. By the way, I altered this painting since taking this photograph, and there's lava running down the volcano on the actual painting. Also, whenever I look at this image I get hot as hell, and you can only imagine how uncomfortable it was to actually paint. Acrylic on canvas, actual size 36" X 36".
Here's how the three "standing beast" paintings are supposed to be arranged, with each one aimed at the one they're strong against. I figured I'd put this here since the Manticore is last alphabetically, and doesn't have as many pictures as the other two.
