The Shortcut by Mavrosh The Shortcut by Mavrosh
Royan is an adventurer. Raised by the Nomads of the desert he left his clan at a young age to discover the world and hunt for treasures. He has found many dark places and not always treasures can be found...

Thank you for looking! I had so much fun with this shot even though getting it lit was kind of something. I am happy with the result though. Yup, that is the new guy from my last portrait picture. :heart:

DAZ Studio 4 and photoshop painting.

Wondrously photo-real with lush depth-of-field layering.

It's your shadow-craft, though, which captivates my senses here.
A sweetly luscious scene to sit with a while.

Nicely done!

Looks really awesome! I like the texture of his clothing and that torch!

Is that a dragon or some kind of reptile stalking him from behind?

Jetzt bin ich aber wirklich neugierig ...

Mal abgesehen davon, dass das Spiel von Licht und Schatten, die Details und die Komposition mal wieder einfach hammermäßig sind.
