Wandering Warrior

Illustration by Matt Walker of a female knight in golden armour wandering through desert ruins

This piece was originally made in response to a character design competition, but I found out about it too late in the day and only managed to produce a quick rough sketch. It got forgotten until I found the sketch a few days ago and thought it had potential, though granted it was little more than a stick figure walking over a sand dune (see below).

I did a little more work on the character and had a play around with the background, trying sand dunes of varying shapes and sizes. Nothing seemed to look right. At some point I must’ve had the brain-wave that she needed to be walking through something a little more interesting than just sand, so I threw in some ruined pillars and everything snowballed from there! Anyway, hope you like it.
