The Blue Beards by alarie-tano The Blue Beards by alarie-tano
One of several illustrations for Morbidus War Game Project of Sophian Epic.

They are an elite guard. when i doodled a bit for them i got the idea that they could protect the entry to an important hall which reminded me at an epic painting by John Howe. Inspired by that I searched the web for medieval carvings which led me to pictures of the Urnes Stave church, Sogn, Norway, on which the carvings on the doors in this painting are based.

Hope you like it.
