ravine- tarn reiyus by nebezial ravine- tarn reiyus by nebezial
only son of avanum reyus ruler of city state of wranthorn tarn has finaly came to age where he is to take over the crown of his father.

wranthorn rulers obey the tradition of handing oer their authority to their heirs while they live so they can serve to the new king and the people as the high royal guide and advisor. this tradition has led to proverbs that compare wise choices, and listening to good advise to wisdom of the wranthorn kings

wranthorn is one of few countries that respect the old and perfected traditionof coronation by dragonhorns. they use needlesized sliver of dragontears which are then nailed to the new kings head , these cause a crown of horns to grow on its own . after the coronation master smits usually create unique decorative plating which remain for life and beyond attached to kings horns


tarn is wearing the royal armor made of seventh rank tellas , sevenforged dragons are considered semidivine and their scales are nigh impenetrable so armors made from tellas that is created from those scales is light and immensely protective

it is worth mentioning that there are only five smitheries currently in the entire ravine continent who can actually work the rank seven tellas and anything made from it is priceless

also there is a characteristic to seventh rank tellas that makes it obvious from a far. seventh rank tellas is red in its natural form and it is a trait it keeps even after forging into armor or weaponry

This man... this man will be the hero of the day as he shall slay the evil of his land.

Though no one really knows what that evil is so he can sit back and relax for now.

Looks awesome, though im not realy big on the blond hair as im a real dark prefering person.
The red armor makes it very good and the back story is intresting and detailed.
I like it. :3

Very cool, one thing I may say though is that the Horn on the front of his helmit is impracticle, he'd have trouble seeing if he had to wear that in battle!

I plan to order your comic as soon as it is available, and the worldcyclopedia you will do later [link]
I have to ask : when I look at your armors I feel they are incredibly complex, yet you make thousands of them : does it get easy ? Do they now pop up inside your head already well imagined or do you have a basic idea and the rest comes after looking at a lot of references ?

:iconnebezial:
nebezial Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2011
they pop in, its an inevitable result of devoting last ten years of my life examining and drawing various types of armors so now im ready to do it all without any reference material which significantly speeds up the drawing process

I'm a huge fan of armor, fantasy, historical, and even things that would never be able to be used. Is like sculpture you can wear; and it always looks so awesome when done right; like here.

all these character studies will be part of the comic books right? that would be awesome!

i can see some changes in your painting style in some spots, which you did to achieve an awesome but fast result. i think you are the best in that!!!!

well, what could i expect from my favorite artist? :XD:

epicness!
