Herald of Twilight by BATTLEFAIRIES Herald of Twilight by BATTLEFAIRIES
Okay, so I made a little birthday-present for the abidingly amicable & amazing ~orogion... Took me a while, but here it is.
Many thanks to the wonderful boys and galls from ConceptArt.org who made me push my limits and pointed out the not unconsiderable amount of flaws my first drafts sported... Your frank opinions really took this thing to the next level!

Story: these are the original characters from our tabletop D&D game 'Herald of Twilight', with Khiara the fire genasi obviously stealing the show, flanked by Cha-Sui who is, going by the icebear cub, in druid mode, and Bran the cleric of Talos who doesn't know what to think of that Cara-woman they picked up halfway the trip, or that cleric of Lathander Toyan Swordhand (funnest counterpart ever).

Dungeons and Dragons and its campaign setting 'The Forgotten Realms' are the legal property of Wizards of the Coast.

This is absolutely amazing! I wish I could paint like this! I especially paid attention to the characters' armors, they look pefect! What's more the whole scene looks very natural, could be a professional poster for some game!

Aw that's very nice of you to say!
Well, using reference is the key here - with the outfits being the exception... Once you've seen enough it's just too much fun to start making your own...!

This size was the biggest I could manage on my computer (which is broken now, so hopefully that'll change) - I don't usually work that big, but this I wanted to be able to print on glossy paper to serve as a poster.
It was a tough job (I went through lots of iterations) but definitely worth it because I could add all the details I wanted.

Glad you like it so! And thank you for the kind words...!

It's at least HD size :D so for a wallpaper it's very suitable
I hope you can use it as a poster as well.
Is you PC now being fixed? or does it work but not as well as it should?
The result of your work is definately awesome though, so it was definately worth the trouble ^^

My pleasure!

Nah I'm looking for a new computer. Maybe a portable one so I can take it outside.

And yup, :iconorogion:, whose birthday present it was, used it as a wallpaper (and as a poster, because that was the idea). If you haven't already, check him out too! He's working as a professional in the Larian Studios games company, but his spare-time D&D stuff is gorgeous as well...!

Contrary to expectations, Sander manages to eat his frozen treats quite nicely.
That is, until we gave him a Smurfs popsicle. His mouth and lips were so blue he looked beyond frostbitten. More like a poisoned, undead goth in fact.
And then he insisted on perching on the side of the couch near the street-side window and duck his head under the curtain, so he could watch the traffic. So now everyone in town probably thinks my firstborn is a nightmarish freak of sorts.
Ah well.
