Another commissioned painting of Arwen Nightbreeze for one of my favourite clients! I designed Arwen back in last year, and this time I got to design a completely new character of my own from scratch too
Was very inspired by Kan Liu, Alan Lee and Ruan Jia!

It's also a funny coincidence that I've been staring at Ruan Jia's work pretty obsessively the past week, especially to see how he paints armor, and when I saw this dude here I thought there was certainly some resemblance to one of his paintings... You did a great job though, your textures and use of color are really inspiring and I love seeing how you create these pieces, it's really motivational and the speed paints are incredibly helpful too, so thank you!
fabulous work I'd say!
"Why did you put a knife in the map?"
"That's a hand drawn map. You put a hole in this perfectly good map."
"Well... I had to pin it down so it wouldn't roll back up."
"We are in a forest. Grab a stick or stone. Or just ask ME to hold it for you."
"... I think we are getting off topic."
"And I think YOU owe a mapmaker an apology."
And beautiful painting, by the way ^^
Thanks for sharing your works.
