Thanks guys. I'll probably go with that one.
DR, I started off lightly. I don't want to cramp the composition more than is needed. Although it may work with cards. I'd love it if I could include some hot chicks, but at the same time it seems a bit of a cheap move in this particular context, so I'll see how things develop.
Yeah I'll probably shift the horizon. I'm just really getting used to drawing horses (and people on horses -it's tricky, their position can ruin the character).
A horologium is basically a badass astronomical clock (you know, all the astronomy teaching stuff about Alloces):
Browsed through a volume on history of art. Now I've got so many impressions and directions I want to take this that I can't decide. I hope I'll find the right balance. I'd still like to stick to my usual high saturation style, but at the same time I think that a more realistic approach would look good. Not to mention that copying the medieval interpretations here and there would give it this interesting eerie look. Some of the early Christian badassery is just beautiful.
Like this Scythian one:
It makes me want to shed all realism and do one of these organic compact things for once.
Not to mention Irish South Park Jesus.
