Kingslayer by yangtianli Kingslayer by yangtianli
Finally! This painting took me FOREVER...around 2 weeks... I'm just too slow! :/ But I think this is also the most challenging painting I've ever, which is heaps of fun! :D

Recently I have been reading a lot of manga Berserk (it renews so slow...I saved for so long then I just went through them too quickly...) and also I'm a huge fan of Game of Throne! So I really wanted to do some armor and medieval stuff.

Then my friend Bob Baxter [link] and Patrick Brown [link] have selected a theme for their challenge on [link] , which is Kingslayer with a Medieval background. I was like 'Awesome! Exactly what I wanna do!!' And I did their last challenge too, which you can check out here:

Anyway this time I wanted to challenge myself to draw an illustration with several characters, and try to tell a story with it. Also it's pretty rare for me to draw guys (or at least show them), so I may as well put them in. :P YES I CAN DRAW UGLY GUYS, not only pretty girls (even though I love drawing pretty girls SO MUCHHHH) :P

Would anyone be keen to read a walkthrough of this painting at all? If I get more than 10 requests I'll do it. :XD: Otherwise I'm just too lazy...hahaha....

Now, onto next painting! :D

Wow I really like this one, it seems like they were all trying to assassinate him! With the one grabbing his head (Ouch...) and the girl behind the chair with the dagger and the guy with what seems to me poison!

Just awww! I'm so jealous! This is amazing!
