Artist's Description

Medium: Digital
Description:

Created in Photoshop, June 2009, this piece started out as an acrylic painting on textured canvas paper. I felt I had painted myself into a corner with this piece, so I transferred it to the computer to finish it.

The Witch King came about, not from Tolkien’s creation of the same name, but more on the idea of a Burrow Wrights, Liches and Psychopomps. Whilst researching another painting, I found numerous articles on these types of ghostly beings and decided to create a character based loosely around these archetypes of the fantasy genre.

Ghosts, to me, represent a manifestation of the fear of the unknown, the almost unexplainable. Although I don’t personally believe in the existence of such entities, my non-belief doesn’t stop me from illustrating them.
