Li Heng


Just how I imagined the night Storro and the gang started their defence of Li Heng. It was my favourite part of the Return of the Crimson Guard story.

I had some difficulty re-imagining the city as oriental. It was however really enjoyable to do. I'll have to revisit the idea more, as an architect I just HAVE to try reconceptualize the city.

This was done for the comp over at :iconmalazan-art-guild: Please leave a comment on what you think.

Like I know its not the only colour in the pick, but it just stands out so well against all the other mutedness! Just makes the whole scene that much more alive in my mind!
