Song of Exile-Detail



A detail of Song of Exile.

In the forests of the Untamed Land, the Wolf wanders. He hums the tune to a song, words long forgotten, but feelings still remembered. Ramah dreams of the desert homeland where he can never return, where he was once a Prince among men.

Now he is only a Wolf chasing the spirits of the past.

This painting was almost singularly inspired by listening to the haunting song, Feraghi - Song of Exile by Niyaz. If anyone knows where I can find the translation of this song, or can translate it themselves, I will give you a free print from my shop. I really want to know what it says.

This piece represents a personal milestone for me. I haven't sat down to do something for myself in a long while, much less sat and asked myself at every phase of the image "Just how can I push this farther?" This was also the first time I feel I've gotten this character correct after failing to depict him close to the image I had of him in my mind's eye in past illustrations.

I hope to continue this pattern of pushing myself, which may mean less artwork in the meantime, as it will take me longer to produce higher quality images. I think this habit will be worth it in the long run.
