The Raven Tide by ukitakumuki The Raven Tide by ukitakumuki
2 hours, PSCS, airbrush tool

Once again, inspired by the sea.

"Wyvern force approaching from the East! Deploy the Ravenous archers! These archers of legend are reputed to be able to fire volleys of up to 40 arrows a minute. A handful of them stood fast at the coast of Halarae, and took down the entire invasion force of wyverns, suffering only minor casualties fom rope burn."

this is actually really cool and it pains me to bring up the fact that the quiver is on the wrong side of the hip

I am no archer, but I imagine it is still plausible to reach down and get an arrow out? I guess i was going for something that felt functional -enough-. Do share your reason so I can understand better :) Thanks again!

archers just usually keep their quivers on the opposite side of the body as the bow. He absolutely could still reach down, and like I said this is a really cool picture, but keeping the quiver on the other side keeps it out of the way of the bowstring and can make it easier to reach the arrows with your free hand.

Rope burn i love IT! Are these stories and facts about your pieces from a real source? or like this one purely your creative and talented imagination?

It sounds like a description right out of a Forgotten Realms novel.

No they're just thought up as the piece is being done. Being the poor illustrator that I am I need to rely on even lousier copy to explain what it going on. :p On a more serious note though, I'm big on credit, and I don't use a source or extract without giving mention where due.

Damn thats pretty awsome, the design of the costume is pretty sleek. Now that I look at it closely it kinda reminds me of Dark Knight Cecil from FFIV. Good stuff man.
