The Sleeping Goblin Guard by mdlillustration The Sleeping Goblin Guard by mdlillustration
Acrylic paint on A5 paper

Here's a little painting I did this week of a goblin guard who fell asleep on his watch. I like the general atmosphere and I don't feel too many weird errors have crept in. The rats are my favourite( as always) not only because I like rats but because it was so easy. Didn't even do a sketch or something I just painted it on. Not something I would do normally but after having had rats for several years I feel pretty comfortable with them. The lantern is another matter. At one point it looked more like a medieval disco or a lowtech Tardis or something. It's not that bad anymore but still..... I left the background pretty simple and I'm happy with that decision. One thing I didn't do but might add later on are the ropes holding the wood of the pallisade together.

Very well done! This is a very interesting and very out of the box concept. I included it in my blog. [link]
