Ballaw of the Rambling Rosehip Players! by nicholaskole Ballaw of the Rambling Rosehip Players! by nicholaskole
The Redwall series- especially the book Martin The Warrior- were my favorite as a kid. So as an experiment in style and because the characters won't leave my head all these years later, I decided to take another pass at some of them :)

Ahhh, Ballaw de Quincewold! The traveling troupe of actors and performers from Martin have always stuck with me- so many times I've designed or thought up new characters based on these old ones. The mad theatrical energy of Ballaw, his courage and willingness to fight alongside Martin...what a chap. Bally good egg wot wot ;)

I see some Rise of the Guardians inspiration? (It's a good thing, either way!)

This is my favorite of the bunch, I love how much character these is in this piece. I especially like what you did with his mask.

It was really fun seeing you release all these on Twitter, I'll cross my fingers that you decide to do some more Redwall down the road!

Really great! The colors and design are wonderful. From the pose you can see Ballaw is a dramatic actor, really getting into the role.

Wow! Between the pose, the expression, and the gorgeous colors, you really brought the character to life. It's amazing how you're able to emulate the look of traditional media. Especially the way the colors overlap and interact--how on earth are you able to do that? Lots of brushstrokes at low opacity?
