Around the Fire by Zephind Around the Fire by Zephind
After a loooong time, here it is: the Illustration I've been working on for... like a month, almost two?

Can't trully tell the time I've spent here, since I almost gave up: interiorism, perspective, lots of detail (or not), and pesky mistakes I've done in the piece and are at plain sight. XD

Mastering the light to know how to play with the colours, fire tutorials... brush pressures... wall textures (and wood textures for the shields), playing with perspective.... That's why I tend to draw simple characters and barely no background!

But what can I say? Finally it's done, and I must say that I'm quite proud of it, despite those mistakes.

Thank you friends who supported me in this piece, Aracadian Friends and Andorrans alike. ^^

My signature has an envolved Neptune symbol, and in the date, a Spring symbol.

I hope you to enjoy the piece as much I did enjoy it: my character Skellig the Bard (A DWARF, finally, a race that suits him!), playing the lyre in a dwarven-like tabern... Around the fire. Clues are scattered in the piece, both drawn and written. I'll let you decypher them.

Since the setting it's in a parallel Venice in a magic Earth (again XD), The Visconti-Sforza Tarot it's a must, and the shield of the St Marcus Lion represents it. The symbolism by itself it's quite explained here, on the [link] .

AND ONE NOTE: Oh ~mr-potato if it weren't you, SPECIALLY YOU, what could I do? Only the patiencie of this talented artist and his Mastery of Light made me achieve this piece. Thank you.

Cool background, you did a great job on the perspective! (Especially with all those details woah) It looks like the guy just dumped his entire inventory all over the room! XD

Thank you, glad you liked it! I had a hard time to try to get the perspective though, I have some difficulties to draw spaces/backgrounds with decent perspective. And yes! Since he's on a room, he's free to unpack the inventory just for the lulz! Chaotic alignements tend to do that. :D

I think the effort paid off, it looks great! And maybe he had to unpack his inventory because his lyre was at the bottom of all his stuff. :U
