William and Sly


This is my entry for NG Print Calendar 2011. All done in Photoshop.
It is based on the game William and Sly which is one of my favorite games on NG. I love the mystic atmosphere of the game, the characters and the artwork. I tried to capture this atmosphere on my picture. Hope I made it.

Thanks a lot. I´m really happy to be in the calendar. Thanks for all your comments.
Of course, I know that there is no spider in the game. But I didn´t want to copy the game one to one. It´s my own interpretation. Certainly the fox has experienced other adventures, and I didn´t want to show the end of the game, cause everbody should play it for himself first.

@ Kajenx: Will there be more adventures of William and Sly?

I'm not favoriting this just because William and Sly is one of my favorite games, although it helps. I'm favoriting this because it's completely brilliant! I don't even remember that spider dude from the game. I have beaten it. I can recall those stones. The wings are probably the most graceful part.

Everything is done in such a realistic manner. Well, as realistic as a game with this premise could be. I'm noticing new things, like the eyes in the darkness on the left. It must have taken forever to make every single snowflake. It's detail like that, which makes this a great picture. I hope you got in!


I like the game very much so i like that you did a photo of it.

Love it!

I love this game! and I love how you captured it with such talent! ! wish they make a new one. again love the art work.

Cute :3

A hurr hurrr...


First just let me say its one of my favorite works. I love how you have sly watching as this great evil presence watching from the gloom and darkness. I also like the smaller touches such as the slime monster, mushrooms, and stone. Please don't hate me, but I just don't like how sly's wings look. I know they should be ethereal in some way, but the style/color just seems too off. It gives me the impression its just not an organic part of the work. ~please don't hate me, it's an amazing work!
