Warrior Smurf


A client wanted me to do a portrait of him as basically a warrior version of Papa Smurf. They also wanted their dog included in the piece and the words "Daemonium Interfectorem", which means Demon Slayer. Everything else was left up to my imagination. So after some careful thought I decided to paint him setting on a throne, in the middle of a mystical forest, with the words inscribed on it and being served by a faerie. Seemed an appropriate type scene for the kind of imagery he was wanting and in the end he was really pleased with the end results.
