Rest is good as well, but thrid from top is my favorite.

Really? I liked the others more. And the detail (backgrounds, etc) in the last one was spectacular. The last Ashviere portrait might it need some dark blouse under her corset to protect my not-so-innocent eyes. Just my opinion.

I had a couple of thoughts about the third frame: looks like the whiteout effect removes too much of your cool textures, and the cape seems to be out of synch with the sword-drawing motion.

Oh, and happy Valentine's. I love your art style!

I think it looks really cool, regardless

I wouldn't say that is necessary imo.

Very nice! My only quibble is that in the second one, Delfador seems to not have a right arm. :?

Hmmm, a closer look has revealed some things that could do with a touch-up.
The soldiers in the background of #2 are all the same. I know it's a minor detail, but some slight variations wouldn't go astray.
The posture of the Prince looks a little strange in #3, too submissive perhaps? He doesn't appear to really be fighting.

Oh hell. Not this debate, not again... :x

It's under his robe, surely. (I mean, where else is it going to get itself to?)

These are wonderful, though. Thanks, Johann.

I believe, as an interim solution towards having them at their native resolution of 1024x768, which requires some slight code work, I'm going to toss most of the old ones and replace them with what Johann has posted so far. If someone desperately needs them for their own campaign, they're in our SVN repository's history. I'll also be putting in Kestenvarn's map (finally) - which I'll try to size to line up with the old, so that scott doesn't have to redefine the XY points for the overlays.

Hello! Once again, thanks for the comments and crits. I have already addressed some of them: added a visible arm to Delf, and gave individual faces to the soldiers in the Delf+army pic, as well as the earlier King+army pic. As for the queen, I purposely tried to make her a bit youthful, considering Konrad is still a baby during this period, we don't want her looking like a 60 something hag with sagging breasts when he is all grown up- gotta keep that sexy tyrant factor right? :wink: Unless we do want to go the haggish route, that can be arranged.

Btw, Jetryl I have the 1024x768 format of these pics. I was planning on sending them to you in bulk upon completion, but if you need the hi-res now, just let me know.

I appreciate the feedback. Hoping to wrap this up soon. You all have a good one!
