The Imperial State by JanBoruta The Imperial State by JanBoruta
Fanart for the game Mount&Blade, or rather for its modification - The Eagle and the Radiant Cross. Here, Kaiser Frederick Wilhelm on the battlefield, observing the onslaught.

Tabletwork, about 7 hours in photoshop.
Regards,
Tom.

There is such a modification for mount and blade? That's one I have to look for ;)

The painting itself is great! I love those helmets, those "Pickelhauben". The lighting is great and the thought of such a line of battle with those soldiers shooting sends a chill of excitement down my spine :)

A wonderfully done scene...the light effects are drawn incredibly well, not to mention the sky...

The figures have a good sense of position and emotion to them.

If I were to complain about one thing, however, I'd say that the grass is sort of sub-par; it looks decent when looking at another object within the scene, but not so much when looked at directly.

generał jakby w dwóch płaszczyznach malowany głowa w profilu a ciało troszkę obrócone do nas ogólne wrażenie najbardziej jak dla mnie psuje trawa jakaś tak niechlujna w stosunku do reszty się wydaje no i na twarzy rzuca się bardzo używanie czarnego czy szarości do cieniowania szkoda ze nie znam się na kolorkach ;] to by było na tyle jak na razie ;] no cóż mam nadzieje ze coś pomogłem choć odrobinę i nie marudzę za dużo anyłej fajny obrazek choć na razie twojw ołówki szczególnie statków bardziej się podobaja :)

1. No, bo ta twarz mu taka wyszła.
2. Trawa nie ma odciągać wzroku od pierwszego planu. I mnie łapa bolała już.
3. Cieniowanie czernią na twarzy, zgodzę się, ale nie chciałem zanadto się na tym zatrzymywać. W innych miejscach nie przyznaję się do winy ;)

Pretty much like. Textures 90%, character.character shadow detail ~80%, but I disabled particle systems and set grass density to 20%, they do bugger a lot!

Oh and I use Graphical Enhancement mod :D

Ragerancher Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2009
I did use that but it buggered up another mod i had. Very nice work. I really hope they make Mount and Blade II. That game has so much potential that hasn't been released. The combat system is already one of the best.

Trawkę narysowałem na początku i kiedy chciałem ją polepszyć to już mnie łapa bolała po paru godzinach rysowania.. I tylko dodge toolem rozjaśniłem i dodałem gdzieniegdzie cienie, voila! ;)

A Kaiser nieporuszony, bo on niejedną bitwę widział i niejedną kulkę złapał! :D

Hmm, true about the lighting. Still, it's cool, I like it. :)

(for the maille, try making a custom brush, it makes painting maille much quicker and easier.)

But - for me - making custom brushes would take more than 5.. more than 20 :B ;)

jeez, you should try to speed up your painting process ;) efficiency and all. Making a custom maille brush takes about 3 minutes. (it would be just playing with regular round brush settings really.)

ah the Pikelhelm, strange idea, oddly effective...

I'm going to beat my lighting drum again, few minor suggestions:
0 - The face of the lieutenant would be cast in darker lines on its extremes because there is nothing to readily bounce light back at him
0 - The general/Oberst would have a line of light on the line of his jaw because of reflections from the mail

Otherwise, a very very nice piece of work. Not clear on the period though...

Thanks for those tips on lighting :) I did it using my intuition and I didn't have a model to base on.

This is a fanart for a game mod, where the world is based on the renaissance Europe, except for such absurd ideas like Prussians with pickelhaubes using arquebuses and fanatic papists wearing Warhammer high-elf-like armours ;)

Those helms would be far more useful in the Rennaisance, the point of them is that they stop downward chops from cavalry sabres

The strange outfits of WW1 suddenly make more sense...
