This picture is something like a milestone in my work. It is the first picture i done with a complex background - the tents and the green color in the back for a wood and a blue air - and it is the first i done without pre drawing it in pencil. I only done the forms of the tents and of Elissa in penciel and started to draw in color from the beginning. It shows Ellisa von Hohenhain. A female knight (the same like in the grey picture) of the World of Splittermond - a new german roleplaying system. She is a member of an old noble family - but nothing left - only a great old name. So she is a poor daughter of her father - with no change to get some heritage. (because there was nothing she can get). So she travels from tournament to tournament or from castle to castle to earn some money in knightly fighting and to get a better reputation - or maybe find a rich noble man. Her home is the street - but she has knightly and noble attitudes. To protected and to serve - and fight on a tournement for the hounor of a noble lady or a noble man, to protect the defencless and weak people or stay at a castle for a time to be on a side of a lady or lord when they need her sword.
