Fatal Ending - Front Cover by chibi-j Fatal Ending - Front Cover by chibi-j
This picture, I feel to date is the best LoK fanart I have ever produced. It came about during the time when I was becoming far more comfortable with action poses, and working with Painter. It is in fact the front cover for my short comic Fatal Ending which depicts my take on the events that would have ended SR1, if the game had taken that turn. Hence why Kain and Raziel are fighting each other. I love the imagery of them locked in combat, each holding the other`s incarnation of the Soul Reaver just at bay...

The style for the line work of this peice was heavily influenced by MARVEL artist Salvador Larocca, who`s work and style I really admire. This linework was never inked, being drawn and shaded intierly in pencil.

8/2003; pencil lines, Painter

chibi-j Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Freaky...! It's kinda weird seeing my work elsewhere.

I promise I will have a look. If I don't have the original, I'm pretty sure I took a colour photocopy of the picture before I send it off.

Looks great. I love the colours as well. My only concerns are the fact that Raziel seems to have more of a stomach in this then he actually has, and Kain looks a bit odd from the waist down. Otherwise though I really do like it and think it looks fantastic.

Scarred-Eye Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2006
This is great. I can feel the fighting rage Raziel has for Kain, for what he did to him. Two thumbs way, way up

Heh, I loved it the first time I saw it on your website long time ago. Time passes, I found it here and still love it just as much :).
Amazing colouring job, lighting and shading, the poses and's one of the greatest LoK fanarts I've ever seen.

Tee hee Razzy wants Kain! Razzy goes crazy and pouces! :giggle:

Absolutely astounding. I think you've got everything right here, the poses, the compostition, their expressions. Wonderful!
Asamarith Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2004
I love your lok-fanarts and this is the best of all, I like the action pose very much this gives the picture a great atmosphere, full of tension and the will not to let the other win. Your skills with painter are amazing I never got that level in digital painting. Keep up your wonderful work :) a :+fav: for you

:heart::love::heart: Wowee! This is so gorge... :clap: I love the lighting given off by Raziel's reaver. Ooh, feel the tension! RAH!
RandomReduX Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2004  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This is incredibly awesome. Sweeeeeeeeeeeet paintjob, this is definitely one of the finest LoK pieces out there. :)
Ludi-Price Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2004  Hobbyist General Artist
This is a seriously rocking piece of art and you've done some of best work here to be sure (along with the back cover). The digital colouring is simply amazing and makes me very jealous. I hope one day to be this talented with digital colouring. Spectacular work on the lighting especially. On crit I would make (and this you've heard before, I know) is that Kain has a woman's butt. ;) Other than that literally amazing work. You should definitely go pro, sis! ;)
Yurka Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2004
OH MY GOD!That is fantastic!I love the effects you made on raziel's sword

Wow. That is amazing! A really nice job on the shading, hilights, and shadows.
Nalfein Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2004
Yes! LOK Fanart! And really great too! I tried once but both Raziel and Kain are not in my way of drawing.. maybe im too lousy an Artist ( aritst haha ) to draw them ^^° but you really did a great Job with it. the only thing i dont like so much is razielīs um.. sixpack? I havent looked on your ID so i dont know if your a girl but.. kains Ass and then raziels body.. ahem ^^° Especially since raziel doesnt have much more then a Spine to hold his legs and the upper body together.. But still its really great! the coloring must have taken u some time..
Relentless- Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2004
Awesome job, although the guys ass is a bit too 'shiny' for my liking ;)
Ookami-Sama Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2004
This is just outstanding! The coloring is just right and the posework is so dynamic :D
