"Aus der 'Sage der Tapferen'
--und so stieg Gerrit entlang der Hänge gen Gipfel, den Banner der Königstadt geschultert, den Wind und Schnee im Rücken, das treue Streitross trittsicher mit sich, erreicht er die Spitze des Berges. Auf einem Vorsprung stehend reicht er dem Himmelsvolk die Flagge entgegen, kein Sturm kann sie beugen, kein Hindernis sie stoppen, denn dieses Zeichen währt ewig in den Herzen jener die er verließ... --"

English:

"From the 'Tale of the Brave'
--and finally Gerrit reaches the mountainside, the banner of the king's town resting on his shoulder, snow and storm against him, his loyal steed for him, he reaches the top of the mountain. He raises the flag up to the sky, nobody can defeat them, nothing can stop them, because this sign lasts forever in the hearts of those he left... --"

sounds A TON better in german... Anyway, most of you will remember this image from the sketches I posted here for help and crits ( [link] [link] [link] )
Describes a Scene from the 'Tale of the Brave' which is a required reading in Äladhal, a basic book telling the story of how the people of Ädras became free and got their first king of the new country etc. etc.

Anyway, I do hope you like the final outcome, was really fun working on this, I used a different style for the painting in the end, as I didn't want it to end up too 'polished' there are still some sketch lines visible in the final artwork, but that is intentional ;)

FULLVIEW = :heart:

PS.: there will be a step by step file of this just need to prepare and upload it, will add a link later ;)

Gosh, this turned out to be extremely awesome! :heart::XD: Makes you really appreciate a good, evolving sketch and feedback^^ :la:
That flag sure is massive and well- decorated^^ *Wants one! :dummy: Also, the horse's expression is something that really caught my attention, it's very dynamic and filled with emotion. ;)
The shading/coloring of the horse is most phenomenal and it has very soft feeling on it :) Hmmm, I would have expected Gerrit to have bit more clothing in such a cold weather, but since he's the flag bearer, he has to wear that ceremonial outfit and get flu while at it? :D

Marvellous work, I really love the final outcome Lizkay! :w00t::heart:

Stunning as always! I love that flag!

Oh on a side note I meet some girls from Germany on honeymoon. We were on a cruise in the Bahamas. They were on Holiday. I guess they had a special working Visa to work for a year for Disney World. They were very nice. I only got to talk to them for a minute though. They were a bit stunned when they heard me speak German (a little). They were talking to each other and saying how cold the water was. I said to them. "Nicht Kalt!" (not sure if I spelled it right").
