Yep. It's called (working title) "Oak and Thunder". I've set up a tumblr (what the cool kids use these days) for it here:

You can read my first blog post about how the idea for it developed on my blog:…
  • Mood: Optimism
  • Listening to: radio Paradise
  • Reading: 15 different books
  • Watching: Parks and Rec
  • Playing: Tiny Barbarian
  • Eating: müsli
  • Drinking: green tea

Battle of Dale (Revisited)
So I was reminded of an old painting I did as a concept for The Last Days, in 2007! It depicted the forces of Dale battling Easterlings. I decided to flex my battle-painting muscles and revisit the scene in between working on commercial stuff. It was surprisingly fun, painting this in Photoshop (which I don't generally do) and in such a monochrome color scheme.

Ive just diversified my group gallery folders and I can feature more of your art. Ietook a final assault and carefully check your gallery and found these items for hich Ive sent requests:……………………………………………………………

Ive found other little jewels which I would gladly feature only that they are too many  of them, mostly concept swords and helmets, not the most fictional/completely phantasmal ones but some very clever and elegant derived and build from some historical specimens which is exaclty my kind of fantasy warfare stuff.

It would be too frustrating for me not to feature them  in my group in some way so I have to ask you a favor. Instead of having them spred across your gallery would you consider doing some big collages/collections for your swords and respectively for your helmets? We have a large public for these kind of weapons/equipment studies be it historical or fantasy and will be even bigger who will simply engulf itself with these kind of art.

Here are the items that were the most appealing to me but iI guess you have many others not submited here on DA:

Hey Jan! I stumbled on your blog while researching for Silk and Gold when I found some of my art in a post about art inspiration for your project. That's incredibly flattering. We should be friends! 
Merlkir Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Hi! Alrighty then. :) I think I'm +watching you already. Yep. Good!

(Silk and Gold was part of what gave me the last push to write about OaT, a hope there might be people interested in seeing something like that. Plus the tumblr thing, of course, otherwise I probably would've stayed with blogger.)
