End of an Empire 2 by OperaGhost21 End of an Empire 2 by OperaGhost21
and...it's done! I have to admit, I kinda like how this turned out...I ended up putting a lot more effort into this than I had planned...

Alright, I said I'd do some more explaining...the other day, I just got this image of a torpal, broken down, defeated, with a swathe of destruction behind him. An event of catastrophic proportions has occurred, destroying the once-great and powerful torpalian empire, leaving a sole survivor, left to question his fate...anyway that vision ended up as these last three drawings, each retaining part of what I imagined...

as far as the end of the torpals go, they were originally going to ascend to a higher plane of existence, where they could indulge in combat for eternity. I like that ending. I also, however, like a devastating ending, something powerful enough to bring the great reign of the torpalian empire to an end. That being said, I don't exactly know what that is. I'm thinking, however, it would involve (at least), a homicidal campaign of conquest, as well as a bloody civil war...I haven't quite gotten it all figured out...I'm not 'killing off' the torpals anytime soon, but on the day they go, they'll go out with a bang.

Aw. Too bad they're on their way out, but I guess every great empire falls eventually. A cool concept nonetheless; this turned out really nicely.

I'm not necessarily sending them out anytime soon...I just like knowing that, when they do go, they're gonna be going down in a blaze of epic, almighty glory...die like they lived, over the top B-)
and thanks!
