Here's a new piece of art from me this week! This is Cynfan y Arth (the Bear), Breton Knight and all around badass. I actually made this piece to accompany a character I made for the Pendragon RPG, I'll post his character sheet below.
The pose is based on an Angus McBride illustration of a Breton Knight. I changed the shield, sword, face, added a beard and dagger. It was done in pen and ink on Bristol board and then scanned into Photoshop and colored. I struggled with the color profile, once I was done I tried to save it but the colors were wayyyyy off. I had to go back and change the color profile for my monitor to get things to gel.
More after the break!
Here are a couple of photos of the process:
