So, a reminder to you all I'm alive - art from me! Was listening to Sonata Arctica on my headphones, folding laundry, and I finally got hit with a burst of inspiration when I can take advantage of it. And, three hours later, here's the result - Syranon trying on Johannes' armor for Halloween. Lord knows how the Death Knight convinced him to try that, probably promising to be good for a while if Syranon agreed. Not that he's the sort to keep that kind of promise for long.
This struck me as a good, fun project for several reasons. First off, I love drawing armor. I don't know why, but it just makes me happy. Second, I needed to draw. Badly. I also need to write, but I'm hoping to use NaNoWriMo for that, which means I'm trying to storyboard beforehand and come up with ideas for my various stories. This includes Heartcore Harem.
Last reason for this picture is because I'm honestly blown away at how well received Syranon's been and the use of him as a foil by
for his Death Knight, Johannes Svarstvard. Which I really hope I'm spelling right, because I've been sick with a cold and am quite tired right now. Personal details aside, I'm honestly flattered at the attention he's given my paladin, going so far as to include him in a short story (go read his stuff, The Invading Tomb, to see). So I wanted to do this as my way of saying 'thanks, I really didn't expect this'.
I had no idea what his arm runes look like, so I wrote RUNES? to look appropriate. Worked for me.
A bit early, but happy Halloween to all you who celebrate it. Hope you all have a good one.
