Commission: Red Atlas by Colourbrand Commission: Red Atlas by Colourbrand
This nightmarish picture is a commission done for :icons7alker117: who wanted me to visualize a piece he is writing called "Operation: Cobra".

It is the story of a young man who...well I could divulge a synopsis but that would be unfair on the creative writer who asked for this to come to pass. SO for further details, please pop by his page and have a ganders – from what I read, it’s a good read!

This image is part of a terrifying vision the hero has in his nightmares. The brief was part of the story but also I was allowed to be as free as I can on this. Most of the story fuelled the image; just a couple of tweaks were needed. The fire is dramatic effect, and hell without fire is like winter without snow.

What was a surprise to me was the hand – it looked more menacing than I imagined. So when you can peeps – have a wee ganders at his work – you will not be disappointed 

:icons7alker117: Cheers for this :D

Enjoy!

Ah yes, the terrifying Atlas! I think you did a wonderful job adding some menace and bite to this impressive monster! The red and black mix well to make it look like something out of a nightmare, and the one dead eye gives kind of a zombie-ish presence to it! Well done sir!

Well thank you sir :) One tries :D

The idea was all the creator's; me I just was allowed to conjour up my own vision of hell with this terrifying monstrosity. He wanted it zombie like as you have pointed out - and he is a very chuffed bunny for it :D

Thank you sir for your fantastic feedback and welcoming visit - most appreciated :D

Always!

I believe this is my favorite interpretation of the Atlas, alongside that old pic of one burying it's fist into a Warhawk's faceplate!
