Xin Zhao, "Jarvan IV's Departure" by Penator Xin Zhao, "Jarvan IV's Departure" by Penator
Okay, so this painting proved a bigger challenge because I'm portraying a scene in the lore of League of Legends. The total painting time is 9 hours. The description of the scene is written below so I would be really honored if you guys would take the time to read it:). aside from champion posters/ wallpapers, I will be creating more scenes in the future based on the various champion's background stories so i really hope you guys will enjoy.

Cheers!

This scene is set 2 years before the formation of the league, when the prince of Demacia, Jarvan IV, was badly wounded in his self esteem due to his crushing defeat at the hands of noxus commander Jericho Swain, and subsequent torture by Urgot the butcher. After his rescue, Jarvan, bitterly sought to attain greater power so that he no longer has to be a hindrance to his countrymen. He left the castle at in the dark of night. The steadfast and ever vigilant Xin Zhao, was the first to discover Jarvan's disappearance and rode after him. At dawn, Xin Zhao solemnly stood guard at the city gates as Jarvan, now clad in full commoner's robes, appeared before him.
Xin Zhao knelt before his future liege, and begged for Jarvan to take him along. The prince helped the warrior to his feet and wrapped the flag upon his spear around his right hand. "I envy you, Xin." "Few men ever live up to people's expectations, you are one of them because you have the power to protect everyone you cherish." "As for me, I need to find my own strength, by myself". And with that, the Prince left.

The look on Xin's face makes me want to cry. :3 Very few pieces have made me want to do that. This is one of the most exceptional pieces I've laid eyes on. Well done.
