A Game of Thrones - Archmaester Ebrose

I just saw this guy up at the Fantasy Flight Games website. I did this guy a while ago and they must've liked it since they used it on the packaging. It's always a joy to see your art on the final product.

And here's the full art. Actually, I had started painting this soon after my sketch was approved when i got an email from the art director saying "George R. Martin told us that the maester's chain is supposed to be tight around his neck." So since I had already painted it, and I liked the long chain better, I just made the chain shorter digitally. So you can see in the final product how it ended up.

Grombrindal - The White Dwarf

I just saw my painting of this guy posted up as the wallpaper for the website of the up-coming Warhammer Invasion: Legends. He is Grombrindal, the elusive "White Dwarf." A historical icon for Games Workshop, and the reason for a magazine series of the same name. Apparently he is a very solitary figure who travels alone in obscurity under his great grey cloak. Then, during battle, when all hope seems lost for the dwarves, he appears pulling off his huge cloak leading the last charge to victory!
