"Conflict of Interests"
A style I term "coming right at you". To exaggerate the foreshortening of a portrayed image would enhance the coming right at you style even more. But that is not always an easy thing to do when composing from one's imagination. Comic book artists are masters at foreshortening. Then there is also the nagging thought that most extreme foreshortening does not lend itself well to fine art. Even though there is always something in a representational painting that is usually foreshortened. Salvador Dali's "Christ of Saint John of the Cross" is a masterful example of foreshortening in a fine art piece.

For the area in the detail image below I studied one of my dogs drooling.

This piece with a castle, a dragon and a warrior could only be fantasy art.
