Bloodshed: A Medieval Portrait of a Gothic Warrior

May 29, 2016





Medieval Gothic Fantasy Digital Portrait Painting and Photo Manipulation 

of a Beautiful and Mysterious Vampiric Warrior by Justin Gedak


Pale skin, dark thoughts, and exotic eyes;

An ancient warlord luring broken hearts.


Bloodshed marks yet another day,

An unbroken promise against the cold light of yesterday.


An unrelenting vengeance.


A wicked thirst.


She owns your future,

and shall devour your past.



This Gothic fantasy portrait of a beautiful and mysterious vampiric warrior was created with a combination of digital painting and photo manipulation using Corel Painter, Adobe Photoshop, and a Wacom Intuos Pro Tablet.


Based on the photography of Felicia Simion

Model: Raluca Ungureanu

For anyone wanting to sign up to my mailing list, I'm giving away a free full resolution digital download of "Born for Battle". It's a very large image, 9000 x 6750 300dpi, and I figured it would be interesting for people to be able to zoom right in to see the details and brushwork. Also, anyone with access to a good printer can print off their own print of it without having to order anything online.
