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. 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. :D

There was also no inspiration from Skyrim. NONE AT ALL. Not even the Skyrim-Jarl slouch. [link] and [link] Nope.

Hey! How've you been? I haven't heard from you in a while!
Lykex Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2012
I know right? >_<;;;

I've been horrendously busy, my latest journal entry has a brief summary. ^^;


Since you liked the last Elder Scrolls, I kinda figured you'd have something here related to Skyrim (even if it just reference. ;p) I was playing it for a while and could have continued if my old PC hadn't died. >_<;;;

I just read it! Congratulations on graduated and getting a job and all that! That's fantastic! :D

Yeah, I still haven't ended up beating Skyrim. I got to about level 74, installed a plug-in for mounted combat, and then found out that my main quest got all screwed up so I couldn't finish it. :XD:

Thanks! It's been tough. Heck right now, we're getting pretty understaffed and my job's threatening to get swamped. >.<;; I'm still thinking of what stuff I can put out here though (and I think I've got it but I need to find more time to try it out first...)

Oh and you're lucky to have reached 74! I was still about 20 the last time I played. XD

I'm surprised you haven't done any fanart featuring your char. Been busy too I guess? ;p

Oooh, sorry to hear that. :hmm: I hope your job is going better now!

I've done a little bit (two of those miniature portraits that I've been doing lately) but honestly, I seem to get more of an inspiration kick out of drawing my beloved little Templars than my own poor neglected characters. :XD:

This picture is pretty epic and makes me want to read the story! :D I swear, it's so hard to find good original stories here on dA.

Anyways, the details are amazing, the expressions on their faces are very antagonistic, and once again I am jealous of your ability to draw robes/cloaks/armour so well! :XD: Keep up the good work!

Thank you! ^^

Yeah, I like her characters a lot too. :D She's still in the process of world-building and plot-construction, so I don't know how long it'll be until she's done writing it, but i can pretty much guarantee it'll be awesome to read. :D

I like all of the details and the guy's expression on the throne. And the sepia tone is cool. :highfive:

By the way, I'm finally getting your pictures framed. It's my birthday present from my grandparents (because I didn't want a big fancy dinner or anything like they wanted to do for me). I'm excited to actually look at them on a regular basis. :D I hope they turn out nice.
