let the bodies hit the floor…

sacrifice [photoshop + wacom. 2009/11 ]

this is an image i did a few years back, for a challenge called ‘sacrifice’.  it was a little washed out, so i have fiddled with it somewhat, mainly pushing the high/lowlights to give a stronger 3D form to the whole piece.

the scene i had in my head at the time was from an old slaine comicstrip [pre-bisley], in which slaine stood atop a mountain of corpses. i don’t remember if i had the reference in front of me at the time, although i suspect not. but that image of whole swathes of cadavers creating their own landscape has stayed with me for many years.

really want to try drawing this again..
