The Last Stand is an original digital art print. The image has been made entirely on the computer by French artist Arnaud Valette.
The Last Stand evokes classic scifi and fantasy compositions from artists such as Frank Frazetta in which a man fights untill his last breath in a hostile alien environment against his attackers. Usually to rescue a damsel in distress.
The Last Stand is painted using the saturated colors that are common in the art of Arnaud Valette. They help give this image so much energy.
French-born Arnaud Valette’s life has always been focused on creativity. He studied Arts (drawing, graphic design, painting) for three years at the university in Toulouse and after that he spend two years at Supinfocom-Arles, a French school focusing on CG movies.
