Legends of Anglerre by RalphHorsley Legends of Anglerre by RalphHorsley
Legends of Anglerre


Acrylic, approx 19" x 25"
original artwork for sale.
copyright Cubicle 7.

"The warrior's bloodlust expressed itself in a bloodcurdling yell, if all this island held was a few pesky Goblins then it would soon be hers..."

I was asked to create a dynamic image of a charging figure for this book's cover. In order to do this I combined a number of approaches, a low viewpoint, strong foreshortening on the key figure, a tiltled horizon, and contrasting palette; the red stands out boldly against the predominantly blues and greens of the rest of the painting.

I had great fun working on this image, and you can read all about the full process on my blog, where I have a complete walkthrough. [link]

The woman painted in wonderfully sharp detail, especially the armour; it looks so vivid! The background is rather gorgeous too, and the deep blue of the sky looks great paired with the rich plum/crimson of her cloak. :thumbsup:

Oh, yeah! Very dynamic, indeed! Really like how the clouds makes her "jet" traces :) Also these braids of her gives her really feral (not to say 'daemonic') appearance, and that's grrrreat :)
Did you use any references for the armor pieces? Or you already have an enormous metal-plate-armor-library in your head so you don't need ones? :)

Thanks very much. For the armour I refernced both my own collection of pieces, and books, but ultimately it is an amalgam created through my imagination.
