Service with a smile!

This one took about two full days worth of work. Painted with PSCS2.



That is awesome. It's the only picture that stuck out on the page it was on. Awesome!

lol a masterpiece with a dash of humor!

Much like my other reviews I think this piece is so well done it looks as if it were made by a whole design team with speciallized equipment and stuff. The goblin on top was kinda random; I like that.
The whole scene seems epic, including the discoloration of the smoke. Where the explosion ignites, it is yellow, and as it spreads and dissipates, it turns orage, then to dark red. If one looks closely, on the hawk's left wing tip feathers, there are even tiny effect lines that blend the wing and make it seem in motion. EVERYTHING is legit, and the effects even go to the reflection of the light of the bomb explosion on the hawk's feathers, eyes, and the goblin's goggles. High level of work has gone into this, and anyone could, (OR SHOULD...) be able to tell.
lol other than that, I find this really funny. Goblin with nukes on a giant hawk on steroids bombing the general populace. lol RANDOMNESS!

Thank you for taking the time to notice all of that. I put a lot of thought into the details in my paintings, so it's always great when people notice them.

I decided to reply to each one of your reviews because they are all very good. =)


This is a really powerful and also beautiful artwork, it's clear to see that a lot of effort has gone into this.

The way that the giant bird "bursts" through the flames ( which are made and coloured to an exceptional standard.) is really well done. The bird's feathers are also constructed really nicely too.
The shadings are well placed ( with the reddish; purplish tinge ) and add to the chaos factor of the piece.
There's also the comedic element too, I almost start to laugh upon seeing the goblin grinning madly with a bomb in its hand. Yup, definitely "service with a smile"!

Great piece of work, colouring works, somewhat amusing and well detailed. 98/100 A*.

Thanks for the wonderful review! You picked up on everything I wanted people to pick up on.


I love this piece. I want to know what the story is behind it, what the goblin is going to do with the explosives etc. You sir, are a true genius of art. I'm sure someone is willing to pay good money for your skills. The use of colours and contrasting is excellent, and the detail is exceptional. Keep up the amazing work.
