Taggerung by KaiserFlames Taggerung by KaiserFlames
Another piece for Fantasy Painting. It seems like that's the only class I'm doing work I actually enjoy in. Oh weeellll.

This project was to paint a new cover for a fantasy book of our choice, so I chose Brian Jacques' "Taggerung" because I am a huge Redwall fan and the otters are my absolute favorite of the critters in those books. Naturally, Taggerung is one of my favorite books in the series.

Enjoy!
Photoshop CS5, Wacom Intuos3, approx. 20 hours.

Edit (11.14.2012): Some small adjustments/additions to the lighting and shadows of the piece as per instructor critique!

EDIT (11.25.2012): Aww geez! A DD! Thanks everyone! ;3;

Great lighting! I suppose that's Rabbad there with the knife? He's the only Juskarath male fox that appears in the story after Nimbalo shows up (Felch is dead by then).

Nice to see one of my favourite teams in action there - Deyna Taggerung and good ol' Nimbalo! Always loved the obvious difference in size between those guys!
