The knights battled fiercely, each striving for an upper hand in both their individual fight and endless civil war
To attempt to keep focus on the main protagonists I chose a strong spotlight behind them, in the form of the setting sun, which creates powerful rim lighting. Accompanying this the background recedes through atmospheric perspective and muted palette, whilst the fallen figures drop into deeper shadows.
The two sides in the battle are purposely similar, with only small differences in their heraldic devices, to add to the sense of intermingled confusion.
