This is a fan illustration for the mod for Medieval 2 Total War called "Thera - Legacy of the Great Torment", which is one of the best fantasy mods out there.
Colouring of an older sketch: [link]
First in a series, I hope to draw more of them in similar manner until all of the leaders of Thera are portrayed in colour.
Done in Gimp 2.6, about 10-12 hours total, spanning from October 2011 till today.
