Pavis by Merlkir Pavis by Merlkir
This is a cover for the next MoonDesign Gloranthan book - describing in detail the wonderful city of Pavis.

The scene is some kind of ceremony where the ruler of the city and a couple of priests welcome the rising sun. (or is it the setting sun? Can't remember.)

There are hints of dragon worship (banners, smoke and the whole incencer) and also of the important Red Moon.

I painted this quite a while ago, it might be close to a year. All in ArtRage as usual. Not exactly as I wanted it to be, but it was the first colour piece after a long time and I'm reasonably happy with it.

I love the red light spilling down the large street down in the crowd, and the lighting on the ruler is amazing.

I tried to use light in the painting as a guide to the eye, to show what's important and what's happening. So, thank you! :D It seems to be a success.

Chodím kolem toho sem a tam a líbí se mi to čím dál víc. Pěkně si to dáváš ;) barevnost je dost dobrá. Jen to zápěstí na levé ruce vypadá trochu zvláštně. Starší díla by se ale kritizovat neměla... Obzlášt se mi líbí ten kousek kolem pásku hlavního kněžího, nebo ten kouř, který je tu a tam nasvícený. Ta barva mu dává úžasnou plasticitu.

good work and keep it up! :)
