While Njorstinn was known as great fighter amongst his fellow Makht warriors, and once had shared their desire for reputation and wealth, he had in recent years gotten other values in life. After the passing of his wife, his young daughter was now the only thing of true value to him, and he brought her with him wherever he went. Aside from protecting her fiercely, he also made sure that she learnt how to defend herself, as to not suffer the same fate as her mother. Whatever his colleagues thought of him, he didn’t care about. He only wished for Miruna to smile and enjoy her life.
I have added the WIP process of this painting, for those who are interested, showing how I started with a simple 3D setup as a base for sketching and painting. I haven't tried the 3D method much before, but I think I quite like it :)
