Moment of Peace by Tanathiel Moment of Peace by Tanathiel
Finally this piece is finished too ^^
This is an illustrations for Eden: The Deceit RPG core book.

So... I had some nice time with the amount of details and such as well as the composition, though in the end I left out some things (like the blood stain on various parts on the armour, scars on the shoulder armour, ect.) because it would just mess up the end result in my opinion.

As always, criticism and comments are welcome :aww:

Yup, I like how the helm turned out ^^ Not you common spartan/greek helm ;P
Since the nation resembles greeks a lot ^^ (as one can tell from first glance XD)

Thanks a lot for the compliment :D
I'm glad you like it :D

Actually I have a soft spot for this drawing's theme, since I love to draw armours, accessories and a like :)

I like to do it too, but I need to be more skilled!

Well if it makes the learning curve easier, it took me about 10 years on my own to learn to draw this way :) If you manage to get somebody to tell and show you how to do some things you can do it in much less time.
Hehh, with a tutor in a few month or a year you can get to this level :) Tho it depends on the tutor ^^;

Unfortunately I have no tutor and no time to attend art lessons :(

Actually you can learn a LOT if you take a look around in DA's gallery for tutorials. There are a bunch of them around, for different stuff and I learned a lot myself from these, still learning from them :3
