EDIT: Tiny small thing was bothering me, so I had to redo it and upload it AGAIN. Also decided to add in some final details as well. 

Contest Entry for :iconkelskora: 's Secret Legends contest. 

Originally, I wanted to do a piece with Storm, but then I had this landscape in my head and Raiden and Alistair seemed like a perfect fit to add to it. I intended to make the sky a little more red to make the piece darker and more ominous, but clearly that backfired into a really beautiful sunset/sunrise xD. Though I did end up going with it, and it added a nice twist against a barren, ruined landscape and solar eclipse. I really loved how the sky came out in general.

More practice with simple characters against detailed landscapes, this time, with less effort if you can tell. You cannot fathom how long it took to make this piece, and even then this is last second before the deadline of the contest entry. I also think I made the canvas unnecessarily larger than usual, so if it takes forever to load, I understand that. 

Although I struggled, I had a lot of fun drawing Raiden and Alistair and playing with their anatomy and designs. I added some simple lighting and shading here and there to complete the piece. I'd add more details, but not sure where to add it in particular.

Ah well, I'm happy with it. Hope you love it and that it still qualifies for the contest, Kelskora!

BLESS YOU

I'M SO HAPPY TO SEE SOMEONE ELSE DRAW ALISTAIR AND RAIDEN!!!! Hyped Rowlett 

There's literally not enough art of these two I need to get busy r.i.p.

The clouds are so damn beautiful, and the sky, and oh my goodness the eclipse! That's such a great touch!! I also like the idea of the barren battle grounds, it's so fitting to the story and song ;w;

Thanks so much for this contribution dude!!! Llama Emoji-46 (This and That)

Just try your best! 

But if it makes you feel any better, I was announced 3rd place on the DragonArtist's contest entry, only to find out that there was an error with the polls and I didn't make it in the top 3. xD

Oh god I hardly even remember that one.

I should really update it, because I now have like a dozen scarves. xD
