A friend on instagram commissioned this drawing. It’s the city of Ishgard from FFXIV.
For this commission, I focused on creating a rustic, battle scarred looking keep. Ishgard is known for dragon attacks, so it needed to look the part (rusting and charred). While coloring, I used multiple layers on Photoshop to create a soot/charred and rust covered look. For fun, I also added a dragon soaring nearby, as if its looking to start a fight with the city and its defenders.
Also, I ended up making to versions of this drawing: a less battle scarred one and a rustic one.
Overall, I love both versions, and I had a blast designing and coloring these drawings.
Ishgard belongs to Final Fantasy 14 and Square Enix
