I wonder if it is a stylistic choice similar to the artistically frayed mantlings on an old English achievement of arms (what is modernly called a 'coat of arms'? As with things like the posture of animal designs on the shield, different patterns of tattering could suggest different status things: whether the armiger was a court knight or had seen combat, whether they had been to the Crusades and such like. It was meant to imply field and combat experience.

Also, lovely Emil, and good colour choice, Unlos. Suits him well!

afaik, there isn't any explicit lore about tattering levels among paladins, but it's also a pretty open world on class customs/cultures and if you think something's cool chances are you can just kinda do it and call it good
I'll do art-swaps and beta-reads, PM me!

I am more familiar with the conventions of our-world heraldry than I am with those of role-playing games, sadly. Always something new to learn.

Dunno about DnD either, but I know what I like - and fancy armor done well is one of them.  (But I'm puzzled - the frayed cape looks cool, but why is it tattered?  Is that a thing with a paladin?)

It's not a Thing with D&D paladins, no. The reference Unlos used also features a frayed cape, but it's hard to say the reason behind it without knowing that particular character's story. I'd say two likely explanations are 1. the cape is old and has some emotional value for the character, who wears it like that for a reason or 2. the artist just thought it looks cool. There are far more egregious things done in the name of Cool when it comes to fantasy art, so it wouldn't surprise me at all.

I can also see a 3rd reason: Emil spent all his money getting fancy gold-plated armor and had to resort to buying the cheapest 2nd 7th-hand cape he could find  >:D
ETA: that also explains his look-- he's not serious, he's mad at himself for having such a lousy cape (which actually looks great, though)

It looks great, Unlos! Of course Emil would pick the fancy gold armor  ;D
I subscribe to P_'s theory about the cape, lol.

..he used it to polish his armor, obviously. Hrm, I didn't put much thought into it except "I want to see if I can make the tatters look good", so any and all explanations are good, really. Also ee thank you everyone!

Ooh, beautiful work, Unlos! XoX Now I'm inclined to imagine Sigrun in similar armour, though I think she would pick a basic steel armour with a fur cloak, Skyrim-esque...

So I... tried an actual digital painting, rather than the doodles that I posted a little while ago. And I'm super proud of it, even considering it took me a week to finish (more if you count the lineart I based it on). But that said, I'm only just beginning, and I'd welcome concrit if you have any. ♥

Elleth, that's pretty. Made me smile. I don't know enough about art to offer much in the way of concrit, but I will be interested to see where you go from here.

Aw, thank you; I really appreciate the kind words! ♥ I'm very curious where this endeavour will go, too. (Learning to draw/paint, that is... if I had any hand in the comic from here on in, this is one development that would happen. Alas I don't, heh.)

Heyja People! I was not sure if this is the right thread, but I thought it could not do any harm. So people who like pocahontas:  Please view.

A bit late on the draw here (rl has been very time-consuming), but this is absolutely brilliant, and I just love it when we get video treats, especially something this funny  ;D I'm also getting some definite Amsterdam meetup flashbacks  :P

I got a tumblr ask do draw Emil as a character from a roleplaying game/DnD. I must admit I don't know all the classes too well, but the chance to draw Emil in fancy armor was irresistible, so I went for paladin:


(Ref)
XoX I am exceptionally glad you couldn't resist drawing Emil in fancy armour! That is gorgeous! It could be straight out of the players' handbook


Spoiler: show

Just beginning with digital painting huh, that is a very good start (especially Tuuri's hair, you've managed some great floof)! I don't really have any critique either, but I'm looking forwards to seeing more if it comes ^_^

I found an app where you get a daily arting-quest everyday and yesterday or something that quest was "Color a character using only these 5 colors" so... this happened:

Nice drawing! It's hard to use that few colors and create an interesting effect! (By the way, what is the name of this app? I would need some daily art-tasks for when I'm in an art-block...)

Canvas Tutor. It's supposed to teach you how to art, but I haven't manage to figure out exactly what the quest in the "learn to art"-area is so I just check the daily quest in hopes that I understand it xD
