Some New stuff

I am still pretty busy working on the large painting for Demolay International. I will post an updated image shortly when I get a better shot of the painting. I am very close to getting the first one done, though it feels like I could easily spend another year on this if I had the time- which I don't.
I have a few articles for Harn done that are waiting to be released- honestly they are waiting for me to finish the art. As I said, I have been busy. One such article is Herpa the Mace, the Agrikan religious order. I decided a few cool visuals for this article, and while I don't want to give away too much and let it be a surprise I have been thinking a lot about the symbolism and ritual associated with religion- real or fantasy.
I have been trying to sneak in hand symbols- sort of that secret handshake kind of thing. For me it is a fun way to do some writing, expanding the universe of Harn, but with the pictures and the stories associated with them. Hopefully too, the are vague enough for individual interpretation.
Below is a cropped portion of an illustration from Herpa the Mace article- you didn't think I was going to show you the entire image did you? It shows one such hand position. Comment below to let me know what you think and if you have some idea of what this symbols is.

  1. I like the idea of having the images relating to the character's religion or convocation, nice work!

  2. Thank you sir. I will post the full image shortly.
