One of several interior illustrations drawn for Terris: Wrought of Copper, the worldbook supplement to The Mistborn Adventure Game, out now from Crafty. This brings back some of the same characters seen in the core book, to act as examples in the adventure outlined within. The book itself is a breakdown on the Terris culture and its place in the Final Empire, and worth checking out not just for its game value but also as a resource that fills out the world of the Mistborn novels.

Here a group of heroes ride through a snowy canyon, fleeing from troops firing steel-tipped arrows... the central Mistborn uses her powers to Push the metal away before it can strike. I think I did all right with the sense of motion. Composition reads. Might work better flipped, so that the motion of the characters and the arrows follows the direction of the eyes.

©2014 Crafty Games, worked in Manga Studio EX v3 w/the Cintiq 21. Little less hatchified. Only a little.

really nice! i agree that the textures on the capes are very interesting, but even more than the hatching (which is very fun and looks great) is the sense of motion that they provide by billowing out realistically. i think that for me, the fellow on the right and his horse are the most convincing. i'm also digging the hatching and lack of detail on the background, it allows us to focus on the most important parts of the illustration. reminds me of the kind of work ernie chan, barry windsor smith and buscema were doing on those old saga and sword of conan books. in other words, good job!

The inky black surface of the whip-cape is the most appealing part of this piece. Did you use some sort of mask to work within its silhouette?
