First of all, *Novere
(why do I keep typing my own name on dA, EVERY TIME) helped me on this a whole lot.
Second of all, this is my first image with ~real~ background in ages, not to mention my constant attempts at different ways of doing characters, other than painting lately... Idk if it looks decent or not. I'll keep on trying though, just 'cause.
Anyway this image is not perfect but yay, I kind of want to expand on backgrounds in the future. Hopefully it'll get better.
For the image - this is Eirik trying to hide from kritian barbarians. His initial plan was to escape and alert other fortresses, but it kind of failed, because in the winter night he managed to lost his way and just walked around his own fortress until he got caught. Good job, Eirik. Well, he was young, you can forgive him that.
Pinewatch is the name of the last south kritian fortress that stands on the border dividing kritia in halves.
Bunch of words.
