Mouse-drawn and -pixelled.
The lineart took a long time and so did the texturing, everything on and off over the last 3 weeks, I've been working on it very hard in the last couple of days. Well it took a long time summoning the army, getting the troops together, you can imagine.
Reference: I was paging through a book of Adrian Smith's warhammer drawings when I saw a pic called the 'Skaven Battle Line - Warhammer Armies 2001'. I thought it would look cool in pixel art, so I tried to make the same battle line, but in a different more cartoony style. Notice the oversized heads and giant upper bodies. Also I changed a lot of the details since my proportions made some stuff different. A lot had to be improvised and changed. The image was in greyscale and for the duration of this piece the book was on my lap for reference :).
Inspiration: The B.O.B.'s war picture titled 'the Massacre'. And Big Brother since and I am inspired by his work and games, he also informed me about the existence of pixel joint.
