"The dice came up two and one. Three years ago today, Sajaam bought Friendly’s freedom from Safety. Three years he had been homeless. He had followed three people, two men and one woman, all across Styria and back. In that time, the place he had hated least was the Thousand Swords, and not just because it had a number in its name, though that was, of course, a good start."


I had zero time for the BG so sorry about that guys. Believe it or not I found the dice harder to do than the hand; getting those damn angles correct! Hands are something I'm typically pretty decent at but I will admit with my pallet choice I found this rather difficult but I believe it turned out alright. I doubt I'll win (in fact if I get more than one comment for this entry I'll be happy) but meh. All good practise.

Ha ha that is cool and yet the idea of a round die seems a touch... redundant. Unless the weighted ball causes it to stop. relatively quickly. Still I might be able to draw a non-isometric version of those. =D

Nice one! Ultimaodin, here's a dice for you: Moreover inside those dices is dug an octahedron (6 vertices and a ball falling inside them) , quite similar to a diamond...

Hmmm so maybe I should lessen the shadow?

Haha I can actually see the whole crucifiction thing. That honestly was not intended, although amusingly fitting. =D

the heavy shadow makes the blood feel a bit thick, like jelly. nice piece though, reminds me of christ's crucifixion for some reason (pierced hand, looks like his side wound, casting lots).

Damn Dice! I don't know why box like objects haunt me so but for some reason if you give me a straight edged object I just fail. I see that corner now, how the hell did I miss that sharp evil looking jaggy? O_o

Friendly is a hitman and he has a tonne of blood on his hands so I wanted to communicate that with literal blood. =)

The hand is, indeed, well done (i especially like the thumb nail haha how weird). A few pixels on the dice could be corrected, for instance on the down right corner of the bottom one.

Global composing is well-balanced.

I love the palette, but why exactly is his hand bleeding?
