The Warlord

Published:

Description

The stories of the Western realm speak of high warlord Sophine de Terengil and her last conference with her general before they led her army through the forests to desperately attack the city of Unotai directly. The council was held on a hill under a white feather-pine. Ever since the feather-pine is considered a sign of good fortune and is forever more a part of the crest of house Terengil ...

From a novel of mine, also related to a roleplaying world I've created, and so will be used for illustrating the rule booklet.

This was a play with texturing and to try a less saturated colour theme than my usual work. All done from scratch in GIMP over some 18 hours or so from beginning to end. I really recommend the large view for this, there are many details.

As always I'm trying new things to try to improve my work and there are many things that can go wrong in a large piece like this. So as usual, comments and especially critique is much appreciated.

UPDATE: Fixed arm finally, added some blurring to remove rescaling artefacts in the jpg image here on DA (The full print image didn't have them, but she looked a bit "cut-out" before)

There is also a detailed tutorial for this image. You can find it here: [link]
