The First Emperor by JanBoruta The First Emperor by JanBoruta
A panorama of the city of Essen, the future capital of the Faustian Reich, and the portrait of the creator of the Reich: the first Kaiser, Karl Faust. On this day his rebellion against the tyrannical council of Otterbach-Anschluss saw the moment of its most decisive triumph.

- - -

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.

-Tom

superb lighting,. it's like how I've always imagined armored medieval soldiers would look like in the setting sun. Must be tiring under all that steel.

Bez wątpienia się inspirowałem, bo i postać na renesansie jest oparta. Ale sądziłem, że wytkniesz mi tyle błędów, ile się da, jak zwykłeś robić :D

Chodziło mi bardziej o jakieś babole w rysunku, chociaż o zgodność historyczną bym się nie obraził (inna sprawa że wierność historyczna w quasi-fantastycznym świecie to sprawa dyskusyjna :D )

Hm babole? nie no, na początku to wyłanianie się cesarskich wojaków wydało mi się trochę naiwnie zrobione, ale przypatrzyłem sie bardziej i jest w sumie ok, to nie czepiałem się na siłę...tylko może "spod szablonu" chopcy wyszli, bo każdy pod takim samym kątem trzyma swoje żelastwo ;) ale co to takiego jak się popatrzy na zbrójcę cysorza, na te dramatyczne chmury i dym i przebijające zza nich słońce :D

Neat.

What are your commission prices? I'd like to see you do some STALKER pencil art.

Thanks :)

Price depends on what you want to see (size, technique) and if you want the original to be shipped to you, though I know that sending things overseas can be quite expensive here. And you'll have to be patient for now, as I'm quite engulfed in work (but not to that extent that I couldn't draw a comission). PM me for details.

I have a friend in Portugal who goes to see his grandmother in Canada every Christmas. I think I could have you mail it to him, and him mail it to me while he's there.

We discussed a similar thing for getting past the tariffs on computer parts.

Bardzo fajne kolory. Wspaniałe oddanie zdobień na zbroi, na tle świetnego tła.

Ta stara zbroja wygląda jak pancerz wspomagany w stylu Warhammera 40000. :)

Wow, I think I might have to get my Med 2 sent to me and go find this mod. This sounds like fun!

It's a really good mod, it introduces a new fantasy map, and even though the factions are based on real-life historical countries, it adds enough changes that each faction is unique and has different play style. There are even Romans and pirates :D If you're interested, this is the mod's subforum on twcenter: [link]

Damn, that does sound cool.

I don't have my game with me (unless I get desperate and a digital copy on Steam) but I will certainly keep this in mind for later.
