this is really a beautiful project, and I'm so happy and proud to be involved by the customer.
I hope the paint is close to the level of the sculpt.

unique piece sculpted by Valentin Zak, painted for a private collection.

inspired by an Adrian Smith artwork, an iconic masterpiece.

  • Rhiana, "Cyradis"

    Awesome piece! Is it just me, or does the dwarf seem to have a lil’ soup stain in his moustache and beard? In a deliberate sort of way - since the area around his mouth is yellow instead of white. I dig it. Adds character!

  • Gus

  • Alessandro Natale

    Just brilliant!

  • Rhett “Saint Toad” Jenkins

    Stupendous. Truly, it’s as if Adrian’s artwork walked off the page, killed an ogre, and sat down on his head for a smoke.

  • Roman LappatPLUS

    This is an amazing piece, Fabrizio! Great ambience, great colors, great details, lovely composition. Gold and Editor from my side.The only downside I see is that this is a small giant, but this might be because I recently played the game “God of War” and so far there was a dead giant who was sized like a mountain. Love the smoke dirty beard!

    Thank you all, you are too kind!
    It was a real pleasure to Paint It.
    Agree with you Roman, to me was an ork size, but maybe giant Is because for the “racist” dwarf it’s a big creature :)
