Urkis, the mad Tempest

In the world of Maj' Eyal the tempests are archmages, specialized in lightning magic. As the element is very fickle and unstable, so are they quite susceptible to insanity after years of (mal)practice :). Urkis is one such Tempest gone mad and one of the late early-game bosses in Tales of Maj' Eyal. Depicted here as he gleefully electrocutes some hapless player :). The idea for the piece was to have a monochrome feel to it.
