Seeker of Power by JakeMurray Seeker of Power by JakeMurray

Xenogears tribute painting featuring the mysterious and menacing, Grahf. One of my absolute favorite characters. I really wanted this piece to be almost a complete reversal of the painting I did of Fei. Whereas Fei is unsure, and overshadowed by the power of his gear (and his own potential), Grahf is the complete opposite – a figure that fully embraces the power he has attained and will utilize any means to see his ultimate goal realized.

Original 12”x18” oil painting. Whew! That only took, what, like 4 years to finally get around to?

Limited edition prints are available in the web store! Special bonus offered on the first 10 orders!

EDIT 12/11/2016:

Thanks so much to
cosmicbound and TsaoShin for giving this piece a DD!

Thanks! I've got some little sketches of ideas for Id, but I'm not totally sold on any of them yet. Of course at the rate I'm going it'll be another 5 years before I manage to get to it haha.

Everytime I hear xenogears's soundtrack and arrive at Grahp's song I still can hear that words on my mind..

I was absolutely delighted to find such awesome fanart of Xenogears, perhaps one of the greatest RPGs of the bygone era. I love everything you have done with this. The pose, the Zohar, the flow of lava. It really is a display of power, and a very fine one at that. Great job!

I've been waiting ages for your next Xenogears piece.  And it's Grahf of all characters...I honestly thought you'd cycle through all the playable characters first and was looking forward to Billy.  But this is even better, I love how this is more or less what I pictured the final showdown between him and Fei to look like, when Grahf sought redemption.  Excellent work.
