Black Templar: Tickle me Pink


Hey folks,

Here’s an update on that Black Templar piece I’ve been working on.

I finally finished the line work and am now in the shading portion of the piece. As you can see, he’s a strangely disturbing shade of pink at the moment since I’ll be using warm shadows and cool lighting.  I also added a little helper dude (failed neophytes need love too) to carry around his immense thunder shield.

I’ll probably keep working on this for a bit longer today (I feel all gross from sitting here since 9:00 AM this morning (it’s 4:14 PM now) so once I refresh myself we’ll see about adding some highlights and color.

I don’t know whether I’m going to be adding a background to this piece… I was kind of hoping to show off this art as something you might find surrounded by text in a game rulebook, but I guess we’ll need to see how I’m feeling when the time comes.

Anyway, I hope you all like the piece and can see what I was talking about with the heavy gothic detailing.

Please feel free to leave comments, questions, and critiques below!
