Shadow of the Fallen King by Serrifth Shadow of the Fallen King by Serrifth
Yep, that's the official name of the game.

So this is finally finished, THANK THE GODS! I was really happy about working on this until i found out that a lot of the characters i designed and some that others had worked real hard on were cut from the game.. so... sadface. :(
But still, i like how this came out despite it being very misleading now. XD

My inspiration for this piece was the Richard Amsel version of the Raiders of the Lost Ark poster.

[link]

Of course i had to make it my own. :D The last team did a take on Star Wars so i naturally thought that Indy would fit quite well with this game, as well as it being done traditionally, instead of Photoshop... >_>" Traditional is where I'm a viking!

I hope you enjoy this piece, i had a blast drawing it!!!

Pencil, Dr. Ph. Martin's Bombay India ink (brown), nibs, Faber Castell PITT pen in sepia, watercolor pencils, Deleter white ink, and Copics on illustration board.

I may touch this up later... Not sure yet what needs fixing. This was scanned in four parts because it was 15x20!

EDIT: ADDED WHISKERS... LOFUCKINGL!!! XDD

Shadow of the Fallen King by =Serrifth is a great traditional piece with unique characters and a great play on an Egyptian mythological theme. ( Suggested by AsterMoody and Featured by Lyricanna )

Okay, now this is just awesome!!! I love the composition and all the details, but my favorite part is how the design of the gods is so unique--not like the typical Egyptian god look. :heart:

It's good, but, the only problem i detect, and you will hate me when you'll see it, it's that one eye of the leopard / snake is very "missplaced" in comparison of the other one, it's either waay too up, or too down, and when you see it, you can not unsee it, sorry for bringing it to your eyes too x)

No, you're right. XD I'm not going to make excuses for it because there's a lot of slip-ups I didn't catch until it was too late. Then when I look back on it, I feel that it can be improved upon. Better to realize it and learn then move on and make something better. :D Thanks for crit! And no, I don't hate you! Lol!!!

:O This is too epic for words but I'm going to try to describe it anyway! :love: I knew it looked familiar somehow--I'm glad you mentioned the Indiana Jones poster because it would have driven me crazy trying to figure out where I've seen this before.... :D But anyway--the details are so amazing and everything looks so beautiful! I love how Horus's (?) sword and chestplate look like wings, and the canopic jars are a nice addition. :) The cat-snake is really awesome too! :heart: You did a great job, keep up the good work! :clap: :+fav:
