Since I started down the Fantasy Path, I thought I'd just do something I haven't really done in years - A full blown illustration. You can probably tell I am shameless, and have Borrowed from just about everybody! This is from scratch, ALL AR3 - using just about every tool, (except stickers & such).

And a fiery, quick tempered King he appears to be..
Excellent work!

Beautifully done; this certainly evokes swords and spells, castles and kings, dwarves and dragons, heroic quests and ancient prophecies... good stuff!

I, like many others in this forum, have a taste for Fantasy art and so I'm sure we'll gladly follow you down this particular "Fantasy Path."

Get the king some wine, he looks pretty irritated to me! Great illustration Skylar!:)

Lovely painting, I especially like the face of the king.

You can be shameless all you want, Skylar as long as you create just wonderful paintings! This is intense and so richly done - great job!

Hmm. it looks like one of those men who gets his way!!! His beard reminds me of a Canadian missionary when I was little. Even now I have a difficult time with bearded men, I think that fear was instilled in me since I was little, way back ladies and gentlemen!!! Funny that I have time to reflect the past (the sign of old age), but it is good to go back to the past at times.

A very fine piece, Skylar! Keep borrowing from everyone and using lots of the AR media--you certainly know how to put them all together!
