When worlds collide by fantasio When worlds collide by fantasio
While its stylistic inspired by high fantasy, my intention was to put the fantasy cliche a bit into question.

Wherever possible I try to mix the common with the uncommon, in this case the impossible presence of the “Ninja-assassin” who breaks into the realms of fantasy. 

The most difficult part was to find the perfect balance; in terms of composition, to make it look like a surprise and equally dynamic but also to keep it serious and not look like parody. I love to give an entrance into a work similar to an architect, yet the fine artist in me strives for the happy accidents.

I´m happy when as result a story unfolds in the viewers mind. Experimenting with various compositions in the first place allowed me to later focus on the fancy parts like the symbols, coloring and so on. All in all it took around 10 hrs for the composite and another 15 hours for the painting / coloring process.

As for the stats, this piece is a mixed digital one, took me about 10 hours for the compositing and another 25 hours for the painting!
Dimensions are: 7000X8000 X 300dpi @ photoshop 7 and wacom graphire(damn i need a cintiq:P)

Der Meister hat mal wieder ein wunderbares Stück Kunst abgeliefert! Aber verdammt Olli, wieso muss der Heini seinen Wakizashi gerade auf der Höhe halten! Solche Spielverderber, diese Ninjas! ;)

Aber im Ernst, tolle Arbeit, wieder voll mit wunderbaren Details und unverkennbarem Stil - Respekt!

One suggestion I have (take it or leave it) is to slightly cool down or darken the samurai sword because it gets a little lost against the girl, it seems to be compressing the space a little. I LOVE the concept, it is always fun to see a piece of artwork that questions itself.

Awesome! I like the pink and purple palette, it's very warm. And the bird looks great!

Is that sort of purplish reddish color one of your favorites? Because I see it in almost all your work!
