    Hardly a single memorable image among the collection. Just put Bugs Bunny or Mickey Mouse in the mix and you’ll understand what really makes character design effective. Having mastery over the medium is important, but individuality, attitude and an understanding of personality types is far more important.

    Really stunning fantasy art!
    My favorites are Arthas, Sorcerer, Asmodian Carnage, Behemoth and Blood Knight. Great Job!
    The others are, hm… looking low-poly and not touched up, just the rough 3d.
