I wanted to draw an Orudel from the world of Eriu (medral-eriu.weebly.com/
) built by my dear friend Medral (www.deviantart.com/medral
This setting is so detailed that i could find easilly every reference I wanted for my drawing, even if I had to bounce from the main website to the dA gallery of the artist who made it.
For this drawing I could lean on the material for every element: for the setting (a specific part of the Numu coast looking to the Mide), for the character (you can find a lot of work for the races of Eriu) and since I wanted to be more precise on what to draw on the poncho (even if it couldn't be seen by the shadows... meh...) I've done some research on what kind of decorations could be found on mexican ponchos, and in many chases they are stilysed icons representing the elements of the local country (mountains, people and animals), and even there it could be easy to put there the "sun" of Eriu... a stylised icon of Faos, the god of sun
Hope you'll like it anyways ^^
