Embers of Madness is a visualization of insanity. It may be considered that fire purifies evil, how ever animals trapped by fire go mad in panic. This is a creature who's mind is encircled by flame and revels in the chaos of his erratic mentality. This thing that was a man, and had been dead, had seen the edge of perception only to be pulled back to life by a sense of vengeance. To topple all living enemies in pillars of fire, to bring the inferno at the edge of all sight into view for all who have wronged him.
This comic book style artwork done in an attempt to capture this element of insanity which in truth is almost all that is left of this character.

This is a fantasy painting, based on a concept about an elf who wakes up believing that the war he was a soldier in, still continues. He discovers that both sides were the same and the means for a third party to gain power. When this elf discovers the political leader he fought for is part of this third party, he attempts assassination only to discover two others with as much reason as him to kill the political traitor: a dwarf and a halfbreed of super intelligent telepathic forest cat and domestic breed. This cats name is Wisdom and is the closest thing to being the last of the full breed forest cats. The elf becomes his Talon and the dwarf is dubbed The Teeth. Together they flee a failed assassination into the enchanted mushroom wilds, This is what I had hoped to capture with this acrylic painting. If you enjoy good fantasy art then I believe you will love my work, this is the first in a series acrylic paintings and Illustrations based on this concept.
