at the gates by begemott at the gates by begemott
He traveled for years, fought and suffered, until he saw the walls of the city. He lied next to the walls and fell asleep; he decided not to get inside.

A bit cheesy? :) I had made a sketch years ago, but never got to paint it until now.

I'd ask more about his story, but I can tell its finished.

Love how the image does have some sort of tale to it already, and the comment you made had it stand out even more.
Also really like how he looks quite relaxed. :)
Beautiful work

It reminds me of an old Asian tale. About a Samurai who solemnly (but underhandedly forced) swore to protect the walls of China. And when the war was over he was offered a place back home, having served his purpose. But the end is much sadder, he lies next to the walls and sleeps for the last time. A great dragon god had been watching the entire time an turns his body into a Golem. So that he may ever fulfill his duty.

And swords will be made into ploughshares. Nice thought but with humans being the selfish greedy creatures that most of us are deep down but here is hoping it's all that keeps a lot of us going.

Wonderful details; I particularly like the botanicals and the lighting effect.

Reminding me of some of M. Lackey's stories (which I am now rereading.)

Here via that motivational poster that used your art of Teddy bear defending against the monsters... Ted was *heroic*...
