Crusader approaching Westmarch Chapel by lucas-reiner Crusader approaching Westmarch Chapel by lucas-reiner
The Crusader is charging towards battle in Westmarch.

Having not yet played any of Act V, it took me a few moments to collect some ideas on which character/scene I wanted to depict. I chose the Crusader mainly because of his ability 'Steed Charge', since I've always wanted to make a painting containing equine anatomy. Perfect opportunity.

My main concern was to capture the overall gloomy, cold mood of Westmarch. Even after adding some blue shading, I decided to leave it black + white. The contrast of the dark outside rim created by the pillars and the crusader against the light face of the chapel came across a lot more powerful this way.

I am hoping to be admitted into the semi-finals, though it will be difficult holding up against some of the other amazing entries.
