Warrior's Way by UglyDucklingCustoms Warrior's Way by UglyDucklingCustoms
Illustration for Stripetail.

Syng, a linsang ancient noble warrior meditating and gathering strength for a very long and dangerous journey to reach the peak of a huge ancient mountain.

I really enjoyed drawing this illustration and spent here way too much time than I was supposed to... but the fun! It was a great experience and would love to draw more of such themes. Ancient noble warriors - always great to draw and need moarrrrr, haha.
The far mountain is supposed to be so overly huge and it's trees and rocks - it is supposed to show a contrast how great and ancient it really is, in comparison to those so much smaller mountain peaks, trees and forests. Syng, Stripetail's character is there thinking of a way to reach his journey's destination, an ancient temple perhaps?

The only reason he's up on that hill is because someone in town told him he needed a haircut. FIGHT THE POWER!!

I think is surprising how you can shade with black over saturated flat colours, and keep the palette classy…
Everything looks fantastic. The character and mountains are striking like a Dürer engraving and the contrasted sky, so soft! c:
