Bards will sing by Kyena Bards will sing by Kyena
This is a completely different style for me - somehow.
Some of you know me..I don't like stagnation and I am trying to develope as many different techniques as possible..so don't be disappointed ;)
Also since it will get sized down drastically there is not as much detail as I normally add to my pieces.

Anyway, this is for LRP and their new expansion of Allegiance - War of factions ([link]) and fully copyrighted. If I see someone use this I am going to send my killer cats your way!

This card grants a character heroic power that is the reason she doesn't look frightened or stressed at all..but rather chanting or praying.

This is amazing. I love this style. Is it all digital or did you scan a line drawing at first?

This had a more heavy line drawing as base (since I had to send the sketch to the publisher).
Since it was used for a trading card I tried a different approach too.

Thanks - makes me really happy to get some positive feedback on this - I was and still am extremely unsure about that style. :)

Nice, though got some thought I would I like to share.


1. She look very relaxed - maybe a bit too relaxed? Or she is a warrior in both spirit and body.

2. Woa! Where did your usual style go? :P Well, Like this piece! Though I like the other style more.

3. Maybe is her right arm a bit short or is it just my tireness that dull my mind? ;)

Anyway great piece - even if this piece is made for exprementing with your techniques you should post it as a devotion, not a scrap.. Keep up :D

I like the human's style, hair and pose. She looks so peaceful in the grip of danger. :) I don't know what, but there's something I really like about the picture.

That is beautiful...
I've rarely seen such good artwork on cards-- I may have to check the game out =)
I admire your ability to switch between different styles... however it still has the same grace and attention to detail as some of your other work. :clap:

That's an amazing compliment - thank you very much :)
The card game sounds indeed very interesting. MtG gets a bit old within time to be honest and my friends and myself ordered Allegiance to check it out. The concept sounds very interesting.

Style experimentation is good - I think it helps an artist grow, though I'm already in awe of your skills, that I can't imagine what else you could grow into! lol. I love this piece - what a story pops into my head! It's stunning!

Damn another nice picture finished when i didn't even manage to complete one :D
Where the hand vanishes into the fog it looks a bit flat though.
The girl looks ver good. i also like her hair.

Kyena Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2004  Professional Digital Artist
that's right - about the flatness..I was going for that asian type of look - but I probably overused it a bit :)
Well you are forgiven..that bookcover sure is a lot of work :)

Danke für das Feedback!
