A character concept piece I've done for a portfolio I intend to send to CD Projekt RED. (the company that made The Witcher 1 and 2 computer games)
He's Liam Aep Muir Moss, a noble officer from Nilfgaard.
"Another promising officer, colonel Liam Aep Muir Moss from the Deithwen division, was thumbing through his pocket book of poetry."
(that's the only description we ever get of him in the Witcher books. It's from an army briefing before the battle of Brenna)
Painted in ArtRage as always.
------------------------ Concept info:
I knew Nilfgaard needs to be black, but I also added a lot of gold and dark "royal" colours, to show his noble status. He's wearing a brigantine (I didn't go for real heavy plate armour), plate legs and "splints" on his arms. The tag on his shoulder says "DEI" - "Deithwen". His sword is based on cinquedea, a late medieval sword worn by Italian nobles who wanted to be seen as akin to their ancient Roman ancestors.
