    Hi all, I'm looking for a specific image in a fantasy setting and thought we all could share art in a forum thread. I have tons of art so I'm sure there are some others here with the same. My current specific need is for a painting of a king's assassination or near-assassination. Even a king dead in front of a bunch of people would work great. This is to personalize a game experience of mine, and would really add a lot.

    Cheers,
    Grape

    Thanks these are really close. Maybe someone can help me out with famous events in fiction where kings have been assassinated? Then I can look up paintings in artstation and deviantart. I might use that bottom or top one from Mustawd if I have to, so thanks tremendously.

    So far I have:
    Renly Baratheon of Game of Thrones
    F named king in Witcher 2

    Also found this:

    Thanks, I got something good enough. An anonymous looking hero in an empty throne room looking around like something just happened. Is it me or should there be more king assassination paintings by now? In the age of Game of Thrones, our artists have failed imho.

    Edit: Seriously thanks a ton though, I was looking for hours.

    both stiff and not dynamic works. AKA boring.


    But classics for sure. Thanks for sharing! :D


    EDIT: The composition in the second one is f'in awful.

    Ok, I could still really use some better pics for Avadon 3 (paintings only please):

    -Charismatic redbearded male, best if stocky like a dwarf

    -Red dragon that is looking at the camera with its mouth closed, maybe intelligent looking
    (This is incredibly hard to find)

    -Beautiful long black haired lady smiling at the camera

    and for these pics I need a relatively blank background with a full body shot:

    (The more human, the better)

    - Young male rogue/assassin without mask/hood on

    - Female rogue/assassin without mask/hood on

    - Female knight with face visible

    - Shaman or Druid male, but pretty civilized and without leaves all over him

    - Female battle mage or chemist or slightly steampunky (engineer type gal)

    I'll probably need more as I play along the game and see descriptions of characters that conflict with the ones I immediately replaced.

    Here are some of these types of images I already have:

    Dunno how you define Charismatic, but I gave it a shot.

    That second one is badass although the contrast is extreme
