Looking to hire artist for a feature film project.

Your body of work is amazing!

Hi, my names Wight Royce Goforth, i'm a producer and I'd love to speak with you further on hiring you to do a somewhat challenging illustration for a new feature film project I'm working on. It's a zombie comedy filled with loads of dark humor that calls for an breathtaking illustration that "A" explains everything the film is about in from on glance and "B" saids to viewers "YOU HAVE TO WATCH THIS!" in it's image. Which I'm sure your fully capable of completing! My email is (wightroycegoforth@yahoo.com) if your intrested have your agent or yourself shoot me an email with an attachment of this illustration and as many others in your gallery/portfolio as you'd like and will get started on this commission as soon as possible!

I love this, it really makes you think too. Not only is it a really really good piece of art but it wonders about the inspiration for this.
It makes me think, at least, are they going to battle or coming from? Are the victors or are they in shame? has it even started yet? Great job.

Xaltotun responds:

Great to know that it makes you wonder. Thank you.


This is a very well done Picture! I get the Grim feeling encompassed here, and going by the title, that feeling was intended. Shading and proportions were great, and the only thing i would like to bring up is the knight second to right that has his helmet open has no depth of a face. It looks believable, yet my eyes are drawn to it because of the blackness there. I understand the idea of it, to keep him annonymous to agree with the grim feeling/ but it looks like there's no face at all. Other than that, I like the way you made the two in front look like they know that something bad is coming due to their posture. Even the horses ears are laid back. I love it. 9/10. Favorited.

Xaltotun responds:

Thank you very much! Now that you mentioned it, the knight with open helm does look strange. A little silhouette there, hinting that someone is inside would have improved a lot.
Oh, well. At least the mood I managed to convey correctly, that was the important part.
