|Hailstone Mountain. Oil on MDF, 18 x 27.|
Above is the raw photo of the painting. Below is the painting after Photoshop manipulation by me and added text by Phil Wade as it is seen on Amazon. There are some differences I should point out for any fans of the book:
I adjusted skin color a little. The shield is red and black instead of red and green (which I based on a viking shield). Clothing is a bit desaturated in the final piece. The ax at the far right isn't so orange. In the photo I was using it appeared as a rather bright copper color. The most significant difference is in Erling's face at center. I changed his hair color and manipulated his facial features for the final picture.
Thanks for looking,
