He crawls through swamps,
alone yet in companionship with thousands of rats.
His legs broken,
his breathe heavy,
his honour vanished.
Vunsvagh is one of my most favourite characters that will appear in teh story of Myre and which will play a very distinctive role. Accompanied by thousands of rats that announce his arrival, he is a banned soul that got thrown into the deep swamps of the very last and dead forest.
Dragging the old branches and sticky mud with him, his burden to dwell in this neverending slough won't come to rest.
He is a great advisor to Myre yet his story has a very deep and sad connection to her.
This was the last big painting I completed in 2011 but I decided to upload it now, with some more changes about the painting. I declare it therefore as my first painting of 2012 as a great, albeit not with the most optimistic picture. ;]
I always wanted to express Vunsvagh's lonliness and sorrow this way.
More is yet to come!
Thanks a lot for looking, and Happy New Year! Vunsvagh and characters of Myre belong to AlectorFencer & Kebi. All rights reserved.
