Going a little more dark this time, this one was tons of fun actually. I was listening to this while making it [link]
and it really worked well inspiring me. I came to realize I LOVE doing dark gritty middle ages type stuff. Hope you guys like it, took
about 10-12 hours.


AND you can download the FULL HD wallpaper!

Looks more like the high middle ages rather than post-Rome Europe.

I am saddened that it took me this many years to find this!  I'm beyond impressed that this only took less than 12 hours to create! I love it so much!

Marvellous! Your style is deft and lovely detailed. The mood is strong in this one, great impression.

Please pardon me asking, but would you by any chance be interested in helping out the volunteer project known as the Ninth Age (T9A for short: www.the-ninth-age.com/ )? It is the spiritual successor of Warhammer Fantasy, run by 300+ volunteer contributors all tinkering in their spare time, and it aims to go even further than Warhammer did along the paths of historically based fantasy smörgåsbord setting: i.imgur.com/dlmQkB6.jpg

For one thing, T9A is the perfect way for what used to be Warhammer fantasy fanart to instead become official artwork for an emerging setting, and thus gain much more widespread exposure.

Moreover, T9A is always welcoming artists who want to join their art team, and your skill and distinctive designs would be great to have on board, should you ever be interested in joining and help develop this setting by putting your own distinctive mark upon its art pool. If you would by any chance be interested in donating old artworks of yours, then here is a quick guide for T9A gallery upload of art contributions: i.imgur.com/ORLCncV.jpg

I can get you in E-mail contact with the head of their art team, if you're interested.

At any rate, splendid artworks! Evocative to boot, and darkly coloured like a dream. Have a nice day. :)

Hey man, do you mind if I use this as the cover for a roguelike RPG ruleset?

Cheers!

Looks like something straight out of a horror game or a well done period piece horror film. I like it a lot!

Creepy. I like it. Seems to be end of October, as the weather is as shitty as it is exactly now.
