Heroes of the Fallen Lands - part 4

The last of the paintings for Heroes of the Fallen Lands.  This was my favorite of the four paintings, for a few reasons, but mostly because it has my father in it.  I exaggerated his features, added the beard, tattoos, changed the hair, but it is my dad under there.  I am a sucker for painting details so filling it up with jars and books and scrolls was a lot of fun.

I neglected to mention that Kate Irwin was the Art Director for the Heroes pieces.  Thanks Kate!
