New painting

by Petar Meseldzija

A few rough sketches and the final preliminary drawing for a new painting titled “Giant Velles Protecting the Holy Oak-Tree”. This is a private commission, however when finished it will be included in my upcoming book on Giants. There is a nice story (although a little sad) that goes with the painting.

  6. Looking really promising! I am very excited to see how this develops, and I really like the theme with the giants defending the old oak, very "Meseldzija-esque"!

  7. An incredible work of draftsmanship! I love how it all comes together. Who am I to criticize, but the giant's club looks a a bit too static to me, like it's resting on his shoulders.

  8. I am so excited for your new book. This drawing is stunning, as much as I admire your paintings I always get lost in how beautiful your line work in yours drawings are. A true master.

  9. Thank you all! The underpainting of this piece is under way. Once this is dry, the real battle will start. This poor giant has to deal with 12 fierce warriors… I, on the other hand, have to deal with him , and the 12 fierce warriors! :-)

  13. “Giant Velles Protecting the Holy Oak-Tree” - if the -Holy Oak Tree- represented as a symbol of PEACE ,Giant Velles is no more a monster like creature. Right ?
