Two Sides Of the Same Coin by AlexandarCho Two Sides Of the Same Coin by AlexandarCho
(Inspired by one of my fav artists - Mucha)

The idea of “making an delicate, elegant and epic-like Merthur illustration” has been haunting me for a quite long while. I didn't set out to do it until earlier this month. The funniest thing is...my tablet broke down completely during the process, still I managed to get it done anyway.(Lord where did I get this strength???) So literally this is one of the toughest digital art that I've ever done. CURSE YOU! And it's by no means epic- like I know!! But I hope you enjoy it!

This is awesome! I love the 'faded tapestry' feel to it while at the same time making their features so distinct.
