Latest Update: Final Image: Rescuing Princess Yanna


The rescue of Princess Yanna

For those of you who have some spare time, here is the story behind the picture.

This illustration shows one of the key moments in the history of the world of Trez: the rescuing of young princess Yanna from certain and dramatic size reduction. The backstory is important to understand the full scope of what is at stake in this representation.
The alliance of the sacred centaur-warriors, the human-frogs and the humans has lasted now for more than two centuries. But to perpetuate an expansion tradition, necessary for the comfort of a growing population, new venues of trade had to be seeked.
On their way to the far east of this world for a delicate diplomatic mission, a small group of representatives of these different species (Mister Todd, a captain of the Human-frogs race and Sheerazertiki, a mighty warrior/centaur, are part of it) was attacked by the pirates of the dark forest. The scareless Princess Yanna was among this front group and after a fierce fight during which all were killed she managed to survive but had to flee in the forest. Exhausted by hours of walk she was then captured by the head shrinkers also called the Bleeders. They generally don't attack group of humans but found in Yanna an idealy isolated and tired prey. Alerted by the rumors of the fight the rest of the group, (belated by some urgent personal business of Mister Todd...) arrived too late on the spot of the attack but succeeded in scaring the pirates away. They followed the tracks of the princess through the forest until they arrived on the edge of the Blue corridor, an old desolated ruin, built by some long forgotten natives. This magical place is known for its eternal blue light, coming from the stones themselves and is now exclusively inhabited by the dreadful Bleeders. Anyone attempting to cross that corridor, which is a shortcut through the eastern mountains, is sure to be killed and have his/her head reduced to the size of a Borgond egg. The danger of rescuing the princess is very high for the small group, but this duty is more important than their own lives. The future alliances are depending on her.
Mister Todd, despite his natural cold blood, is gradually getting worried by the situation. The fight that followed was short and terrible at the same time. The advantage was given by the new weapons developed by the alliance, the powder guns. The number of Bleeders almost overwhelmed them but they managed to rescue the princess and were able to continue their road to the east. The diplomatic mission was a success and a new alliance was established between the two regions, thanks to the princess's diplomatic qualities and the courage of her servants that saved her life. The world of Trez has since then lived a golden age of prosperity from the opening of new roads of commerce and trade.

I hope this story helped you understand my vision of a Master/servant relationship. A strong story always helps to bring out more emotion, but I do hope the picture is showing this on its own. I also tried to bring originality in the design of the characters, in the use of colors and in the composition.

I was delighted to take part to this challenge. Many thanks for those of you who commented all along and my best of luck for your entries.

Line Art: change in the hand



Decided to change the hand of the froggy human. It was removing too much of his humanity.

Coloring WIP: foreground elements added



the new version with some elements in foreground.
Placing elements in front of characters might interfere too much with the composition.
