Ashes of Middenheim by maringouin Ashes of Middenheim by maringouin
Wow! thanks for the DD! :D


Inspired by a good old Warhammer table top rpg game :)
(The GM was making sure my dog was completly useless in combat XD)

I started this illustration quite some time ago and left it aside... And still, It's not finished XD. There are weird things going on here and there and I want to add more details to the costumes and foreground. My eyes are tired of it for now though so I'll update it later.

I only took an animal as a sidekick once, and we haven't even left the building during that session :)

here's a tip, when tackling long extensive projects, make sure you do another project off to the side, this way when you get bored of one you can work on the other some more.

don't fight those urges to drop one project and go to another, because the longer you work on a project the more blind you get from it and you have a high chance of error and making irreparable adjustments. so you have to refresh your creative energy with a pleasant distraction; in this case another art project that you'd rather be working on.

many of my mechs are incomplete, but that is because i feel that i need more experience and knowledge before i tackel the mountain ahead of me. and i have to say, it work great. but above all, make sure you do finish a project, it's easy to forget about projects you temporarily put off to the side.

hey :)
You are right, working on few projects at the same time and switch from one to an other makes it easier to have a "fresher" eye on them. I do it all the time but sometimes I can let some projects on the shelf for months XD

A dwarf, an elf and a kender walk into a bar....

Kidding... The fact that the dog is there with a ball wagging his tail just adds so much hilarity to this!

True, the foreground does need more detail, but the rest of it looks great.

I am not sure if the dog wants to play catch or is willing to fight. Either way that is my favorite part of this piece.
