Working in two dimensions

It's not often, but every once in a while I get the urge to do some drawing. This time, the catalyst was a work called Lands of Red and Gold, over at, which imagines a world where Australia developed agriculture and native urbanized civilizations of its own. After reading through all this, I got to imagining what some of the people might look like, particularly the soldiers of the various cultures. (Well, I am a wargamer, after all. (That reminds me, I should look around and see if anyone has sketched out DBA army lists for the Aururian civilizations yet...))

Anyway, this is the resulting product--I drew the people by hand, then scanned the drawings and colored them in using GIMP.

(And now, with that out of my system, I can get back to painting chariots...)


  1. Great work! Why do I prefer 'imagi-native' warriors ans soldiers over historical ones? Probably because each such creation is *unique*: it's like the discovery a new endemic species of insect or flower.
