The Remnant by jcentracchio The Remnant by jcentracchio
Finally, I'm finished with this piece. I'm too embarrassed to say how long it took. But I'm very pleased with the results. This picture was inspired by my brother's book. They are Shæar Warders; protectors of truth and the Oracles of Elohim. For more detailed description of each, look at the individual images.
As I said from the beginning, now I will give all the credits where they are due.
MODELS:
•Clive Owens face on Alex / Aragorn on the pose.(Google)
•Laetitia Casta's face on Eliyah / [link] for her body.
•Kieth Urban's face on Edrik / Legolas on his body.(Google)
•Took me a while to find him, but here's reference for Donel.

Lastly, I hope you enjoy it.

You can tell that a vast amount of time has been invested in this piece, but its time well spent because the results are great. I particularly like the shading and high lighted work on the characters faces and the snow ground work, great stuff!

This work has amazing detail. In fact when I clicked on the thumbnail from someone's favs I thought I was clicking on a photograph and was surprised to see that it was painted. The snow and wood pile in the foreground are particularly 'realistic'. I can feel the cold and wind. Well done!

You don't really want to know the answer to that question. Honestly, I don't know how long it took. It took way longer than it should have. Thanks, though.

This is great! Can't claim exposing any critique cause I'm not doing airbrushing.

I'd would like to know if your brother published the book you're talking about. If he did, I'd like to read it ;)

Thanks. He hasn't published it yet. I'm not sure how long it will be before he does. It's actually going to be a trilogy. That's the plan right now, anyway. Luckily, I get to read it as he finishes each chapter.

Lucky one. It sounded interesting...the protectors of the oracle of Elohim. has it something to do with jewish history? God, I'm too curious...

It is an allegory(forgot how to spell) about the great controversy between Christ and Satan, between His followers and the followers of the wicked one down through history, through the dark ages and so on. He uses a lot of the original Hebrew and Greek words in the Bible to represent much of the symbology. All the names he uses for each character means something, and it usually symbolizes the kind of character they each possess. It is kind of like Paul Bonyon's book, "Pilgrim's Progress", written many years ago during the Dark Ages. It still can be purchased today, though.
SHADOW'S WAR CHRONICLES (name of my bro's book), focuses primarily on preparation for Jesus' coming, though they don't realize He tarried longer than expected. Kind of like Matthew 25: 1-13 where, "While the bridegroom tarried...." all the virgins fell asleep. I can't wait till it's finished. Though it is set up in fantasy genre, it has very clear symbolism. But not only that, not being partial because he's my brother, it is one of the best stories I've ever read. There's action, love, hate, conflict, suspense, and joy. It's loaded. simply awesome. I'll be posting more pictures from the story as I finish them.
Hope that helps. Thanks for the curiousity. I hope the paragraph I just wrote didn't waste too much of your time.

Didn't waste time at all! That sounds really great and it made even more curious.
I love books that got messages and deal with religious items.
I'll keep it in mind and hope your brother will finish the book and publish it. And I hope, it'll be available in Germany. But if not, I'm quit able to read it in English;)
