Nature's Plight by lexxercise Nature's Plight by lexxercise
Another recently completed piece! I haven\'t made a process post for this one yet, but I\'ll try to remember to link it when I do.

This was an assignment for one of my classes at SCAD this past spring. The prompt was to take a social, political, or environmental issue you felt strongly about and make an illustration representing it. The issue I chose was pollution, but the composition I ended up choosing better represents deforestation I think.

But at face value, it's a forest elf fighting an orc in a mech suit, WHATEVER!

e: I showed this alongside several other works from this past year at GenCon 2011, and this piece won Best Print at the international art show!!! There were SO MANY TALENTED ARTISTS there, I feel so tremendously honored.

I hope the Orc wins...
Mostly cause I'm rascist against elves, but whatever.

I do enjoy when we get the industrial in direct contradiction to the sylvan in art; a favorite theme of mine I like to play with, in fact. Well done! :D

Wow, this is ridiculously awesome and beautiful! I love all the instances of clashing, such as the character's designs (natural vs mechanical) and the contrasting colors. Not to mention the amazing dynamic poses. I love it!

I thought it was a League of legends thing and that was Nidalee fighting blitzcrank

Now now, who's to say the Mech-Orc is the villain here? Maybe it needs to clear the forests to feed its little orc children, pulling three jobs to try to cover the costs of rais- okay I'll shut up.

Ditto on all the Fern Gully comments. Nothing makes a stronger cause for environmental issues than two fantasy races beating the life out of each other.

First thing I thought of was a NElf getting the jump on a Goblin in a shredder.

Even if that's not the case, it still looks very well done. :)
