The Price of Victory - when does it become too high? Ranger Captain Hawkwind has fought for centuries - slain trolls, orcs, undead, humans and countless more. The burden on the mind, heart and soul is growing heavier with every life taken.
Is redemption waiting somewhere ahead, or are we bound to be burrowed under the pile of the skulls of those we have slain? Have all those deaths, the waste of life, been justified? Could they have been avoided in one way or another?
Hawkwind keeps asking these questions more and more frequently these days, but no answers seems to be coming - nor from the silent trees in the elven forests nor from the bright sky above. The ranger is left alone with this burden, left alone with the skulls of fallen enemies, and all those who died under the troubled captain’s command.
The Price of Victory is one of my dream inspired pieces, that just tend to come to me once in a while and fill me with an odd form of inspiration. The actual character of Ranger Captain Hawkwind plays a minor role and is a member of the House Sharpleaf, an elven faction that has allied itself with The Brigade in the past. I have approached this piece in a bit of a different way - it practically painted itself thanks to the strong vision I had in my mind and drove me to finish it. I hope you enjoy the piece, despite its rather dark message.
Ranger Captain Hawkwind has no interest in the summer events. Some other Sharpleaf rangers might be willing to take part an donate, but it is unlikely their leader will take part. There are no Golden Key, Silver Key, Arcanite Key or Obsidian Key here.

The way you did the end of his robe reminds me of tree roots.
The colors work perfectly and fit his description too.
His description is really good, by the way.
Only his hands seem a bit too big. And you could work on the cloth because it looks quite stiff.
Still, that face looks so good. I could stare at it for hours.
rarely have issues with composition. I think I'm better at arting when asleep .
all my dreams vividly. It helps greatly when using dream inspired imagery to create art.
