I think the hardest thing for me has been trying to get some ideas when so much bad luck has been thrown at me again. Moved house, computer trouble again. Lack of happiness. I should draw more monsters.
From left to right: Basic iron blade, Steel blade, Damascus Steel blade, Ceremonial blade, Royal (Kyror's) blade, Jaded blade, Golden Treasure blade, Guardian blade, Naranbaatar /Sun blade and Gala-wan-tengeri (Rahu's) blade.
Majority of my characters in Wastelands use a bow arrow because it is quick, silent and is really hard to draw. I needed reference and practice on how to draw them and the arrows. Most are inspired from 15th-17th century Tibetan and Mongolian armory. And some are purely fantasy/story inspired.
Rahu's "Demon God" bow. Composite Foot bow. Long Turish bow.
Pale Archery Scout bow. Royal Guard bow. Treasure Temple bow
The Yak's of the Wastelands desert. Their coats are actually very thin and provide reflective fibers like that of polar bears. Translucent hairs. But keep the heat in during the cold nights.
The yak's provide milk, meat and materials to the tribes. Their hair spun into clothes, rugs and rope to sell. their milk to cheese and when the times comes, their meat to store and bones for tools and weapons.
It's actually hard to find good shots of colour and landscape rather than screenshots of builds. I should probably go explore more in my own game. Also doing them on a single layer is pretty good for practice too.
