'Hold your squalls...'

  “… I know these avians. Guests from Vitrey have arrived, and Myrddin would do well to welcome them properly.”   Ah, look: Armour! And it turned out pretty well; if I do say so myself, considering that this is the first time I have drawn realistic armour. ^_^ At first, I thought about doing a battle scene just so I could have an excuse for designing lots of fancy armour, but luckily, that streak of temporary insanity wore off quickly. Instead, I just drew Keelty in a breastplate that I at least thought fitted her royal status.   Anyway, this is Queen Keelty, scouting the ocean horizon from the walls of Myrddin (the stronghold of the royal family of Ciar Alan, not to mention the most impregnable fortress in the entire country) with a random stormrider at her side, getting ready to convey a rather unpleasant greeting to the little company of flying forms that they have spotted in the distance. Good thing that the Queen realized that they were gatekeepers, and not darklings, before her mage could send them all reeling back across the ocean to the shores of Hartyd.   A small, but very powerful unit of Queen Keelty’s army, the mages commonly known as ‘stormriders’ are capable of conjuring gales and fierce winds, which they can send to demolish enemy ships and/or, at times, even whole armies. The knowledge and ability to travel on these winds, which gave the stormriders their name in the first place, is, however, no longer at their disposal. I tried to make it look as if the wind was picking up around the Queen and her faithful mage, but I have to admit that I failed miserably, at least when it came to drawing the clouds in the background. *Curse you, blank area of white space that looms behind all of the characters that I draw!*
