Rise of the Horde Sarnuk bloodsoul
KD Stanton on his favourite piece of art and why it was a game changer for the artist
Which of KD’s pieces does he feel most proud of? “That would be Rise of the Horde Sarnuk Bloodsoul,” he says. This was a personal piece depicting orcs on the rampage. It has its own little backstory, which you can read on his website.
“You could say that I started to progress a lot from this picture onwards,” KD says. “It was quite a big breakthrough for me. This was the piece where I realised the importance of the overall composition.
“With my work before, there was always something missing in the overall feel and it tended to lack adequate dynamics and atmosphere. In this piece, I think I finally captured just the right balance between dynamics and details, for the first time. And that has gone on to be a big feature of my current style.
“I’ll never tire of making more art in this style, because I always find something interesting in the process.”
