The Last Gathering by tithendar The Last Gathering by tithendar
Here is a new illustration I did for a personal project. It's a band of mercenaries and they gathered around a stone grave to pay their fallen comrads respect.

Fantastic! You have a great attention to detail. Everything from the grass to the facial expressions of the characters to the armour is painted with great detail which enhances the feel of the painting. Nicely done!

I love this piece, the somber nature looks good on the cliffs of dover there (I know that's probably not what those are, but beautiful grey peaks and ocean always remind me of that.)
Good arms, good armour and great colours: very nice, very forlorn.

The muted color palette does an excellent job communicating the sombre character of this event in the lives of the characters portrayed in this piece.

The flowing veil of the lady placing the sword on the burial cairn is a subtle but powerful visual cue for the winds blowing high atop the cliff. I can hear the wind and feel the silence of these characters in their respectful remembrance of their friend. This is a moving work.

Thank you.

At first glance, this deviation somehow brought the For Honor video game's knight faction to my mind, but then after inspecting it further I realized there's a story of its own. Greetings 
I'm really impressed by the composition, the atmosphere, the emotions and reality of this piece. Nod I almost feel I'm standing there with these mercenaries, joining them in their sorrow. 
You've done fantastic work, fellow deviant, so congratulations on the Daily Deviation award! Clap Also, this deviation is totally +fav'd! w00t!

Highly atmospheric.  And your ability to weave and group the figures, in perspective, is excellent.

Very well done. I can only imagine the story behind the company, and how their respect from their fallen comrade was formed.
