Artwork Description

A commissioned illustration for the collectable card game "Allegiance: War of Factions" by Lucid Raven Productions. The Blood Oath card calls another player to aid the card holder against the card holder's chosen opponent - it can represent an oath of allegiance to the card holder, or perhaps a vendetta against the enemy.

This is a bit of a departure from my usual portrait requests (working in an abstract idea as opposed to a specific person, place or thing) but we were very happy with how it turned out.

Pencil rendering, digital color.

Thank you Christine! I spent about 3 days of work trying to get the shading right on those skin tones - that pinky side in particular. As for Lucid Raven, I was contacted by their Creative Director, Lance Card, and asked to illustrate this as a sort of trial for future contract print work. Not my usual procedure, but I liked what they had to offer and the concept really intrigued me. Smile

Nifty, Amy! I particularly like the pinky, and the fact it seems to be a woman's hand and a man's hand. How did you get your foot in the door at Lucid Raven?

Art at its best.
