About nine hours
Wait, what? ART?
Yes, yes, I'm actually posting something half-way decent for once. You guys, I'm REALLY sorry I've been taking some a ridiculously protracted hiatus. It's kind of insane. I promise I'll post more art soon. PROMISE. In the meantime, what do you guys really want to some me post more of? The comic? I just feel bad that I haven't been updating much recently, so I'll treat you guys.
But anyway, to this picture itself. ~SaxonwithAxe
and myself have been trying to help each other with our respective stories, and I decided I wanted to have a go drawing her characters, if only so she could see how I imagine them from the general impression I've gotten from reading her stuff. So...you guys will probably see more characters from her story.
Introducing: Cormath and Maikam! Who are the two primary antagonists from ~SaxonwithAxe
's story-in-the-making. Cormath is the guy on the left, on the throne, while Maikam is on the right. King Cormath usurped the throne supported by his followers, of which Maikam is the chief and foremost (so, pretty much Cormath's right-hand man).
Hah. Well...this started out being a simple little character sketch and then...well...the celtic knots were fun. And I got a little crazy. And then, well, the room needed some FURNISHINGS
, didn't it? So I did some more fun celtic knotting work on the tapestries and the rug and the throne. BECAUSE ITS FUN. I'm also actually rather happy with how the guys came out too.
Many thanks also to ~SaxonwithAxe
who was kind enough to acquiesce to my request and give this little picture the "=Gold-Seven
-parchment" treatment in Photoshop.
And as a bonus, I think she also added some shadows behind them.
There was also no inspiration from Skyrim. NONE AT ALL. Not even the Skyrim-Jarl slouch. [link]
