This is a commission piece I made for a fellow EverQuest player. He is an Iksar Shadowknight. He wanted to have him looking contemplative as he watched the sun rise while standing on a cliff. This was the most challenging picture for me to draw to date. There were many things in this picture I had never tried before. Metal, clouds, grass, rocks... Just about everything in this picture presented a challenge to me. But in the end I am happy with the final results. The character was drawn by hand with pencil and then the outline inked in. After scanning, it was colored in Photoshop CS with a pen and tablet. The background was created entirely digitally, also using Photoshop CS and a pen and tablet.
