The Patriarchy had always ruled from the winged throne. The people said that condemned prisoners disappeared mysteriously after being left alone in the throne room. Called Azroth. and Belmoth the two sides of the great throne had never been seen to move, but somehow the throne was always in the sunbeams that bath the throne room. The evil Patriarch necromancer, curtained all the windows to preserve a more mysterious Darkness, somehow he disappeared too.
The coronation of new Patriarchs (and they say the Patriarch Petrov was a woman) was always begun by bowing deeply and respectfully to Azroth and Belmoth in turn. It is said that during the vigil of the Coronation the two rise from the throne room and fly through out the kingdom with the new ruler. None has ever denied this tale.

Can the throne room be based on a book/novel? In this case I caught a bit of inspiration from an old favourite of mine (Silverwing) in which there is a rat kingdom and the prince sits high up on his throne surrounded by garbage, or something along those lines. It's been a while since I read it. Or does it have to be completely your own idea? The book itself gives a rather general description. No pictures or any of that. If not, I think I've got another idea. I just like this one better.

I don't see why not, as long as its not based on someone elses visual depiction. But Im not the rule maker. Inspiration is where you find it.
I save whole files of descriptions just for dry idea days
May 11th, 2006, 11:17 AM
what chaos rocks said, jes make sure you clearly state the description is based off a story that is not your own.
May 11th, 2006, 11:21 AM
Ok, thanks for clearing that up for me. Time to get busy :)
May 12th, 2006, 01:25 PM

doing enviroments is something new to me so it has been a learning experience so far :)
May 12th, 2006, 05:32 PM

*where is that shin-y filter anyhow*

Not finished but work is taking up time.
When monarch and church combine they become all powerful. This is what King Larain believed early in the 16th century eastern European country of Chavarki and it was more than successful for over fifty years of peaceful prosperity. His plan to shock and awe his subjects both by dramatic backlighting and loud claps of thunderous noise behind the scenes worked well. Unfortunately it also fostered such an aura of secrecy that when the secret of his mortality was finally leaked, the backlash by the populace was equally as shocking and awe inspiring.

heres mine :)
its kinda meh, but i didnt have much time.
During a time of strife the Drakerise becomes the official seat of the king, with his war council he can command his legions and protect his people within its walls. It's said to be impenetrable and it has never fallen under siege, while most of the keep is simple and strongly fortified the throne room is said to be incredibly ornate, the skill of stone and metal working at that level long lost to its current owners.

nifty. Mr rook
May 16th, 2006, 11:16 AM
nice one ben.
May 16th, 2006, 11:22 AM
hah, cool stuff in here.
J.Mac - great colours, nice tie in with the CHOW. I'd just suggest skewing the picture of Vlad into perspective - it's currently a bit too front on. Also, the left chair arm should be slightly higher (look at the angle of the cushion - it should be about on approx the same line as where the wall meets tiles)
Red Rook - that's awesome. Great design and rendering.
May 16th, 2006, 11:33 AM
Damnit Rook that looks awesome. great stuff man really, im always impressed by ue improvments when u post :)
Gonna post mine later... even though my arse might get kicked :(.
Gonna make some changes - hopefully for the better.
May 16th, 2006, 12:14 PM
yo, here is mine!
Damnit, my designs all look alike...
Tuxania’s Golden Throne Room has turned into a museum since the last king –Xavier XI -died and monarchy came to an end. With its rich ornamentary work and the eye-catching violet light rings this room has become well known in the world of the kings in the 22nd century.
Red Rook: that's fantastic!
Mr. Blonde: love the blood, great one!
J.Mac: cool idea, great rendering!
speculart: the angle rocks!
May 16th, 2006, 12:41 PM
Very kool Hideyoshi!
May 16th, 2006, 12:54 PM
Red Rook - Thats awesome! I love the lighting and colors, although I would add a few highlights to the dude sitting down, I didn't see him at first. Maybe add a few blues or purples towards the back.
Hideyoshi - very cool, I don't see why you think all your designs look alike, plz explain.
I don't have time for this one but maybe next time. :wink:
May 16th, 2006, 01:09 PM
Hideyoshi-I am told that consistancy is a good thing. It's beautiful.
May 16th, 2006, 05:58 PM
J.Mac That is a creepy room! I dig it! If you polish it up some, it could be a winner!
Red_Rook That is nice! Funny that you also have serpent like creatures... I drew a throne a week ago, that uses serpents too! I like yours the best so far!
Hideyoshi Yours is looking good, very presentable! It just doesn't say Throne Room, when I look at it...
MrBlonde I think yours could turn out wonderfully sad and creepy! Looks like a good start!
May 16th, 2006, 06:37 PM
phew that was close..almost forgot the description... uupdate and done...again
May 17th, 2006, 03:14 AM
Hi everyone, guess im a little late. I was supposed to post it when i left work yesterday but i forgot of course. anyway heres the enviroment anyways :)
This is the throne where the evil king of old sat (lets call him king petey III). Ruling the people from within his palace with an iron fist. Although at the time of this painting was done, he was out for a bathroom break. But anyways he mostly just sat in his throne being evil. EEVIIILLL!
May 17th, 2006, 03:23 AM
oo nice red & hideyoshi
May 17th, 2006, 03:32 AM
Thats great Red Rook! Love that claw grasping the wall.
Hideyoshi your environments are fantastic no need to sweat it!!
May 17th, 2006, 06:41 AM
Awesome stuff all round. Not too bad from me (my thoughts) - a bit of an achievment for me.
Love the work here though - Hideyoshi, it might be the same but it still looks damn cool. Love it ;)

Here Andy-- you can use this one.....hehehe (actually I suspect thats cheating but It was what I thought of when I looked at your throne room. nice one
The throne room of the God-king of (fill in the name here) was so hi in the mountains that his followers could barely breathe and often froze to death during ceremonies. The god-king himself was unaffected. This may have been a sign of his divinity, or it may have been the seat heaters in the throne.
May 17th, 2006, 10:08 AM
Stewart: I like your use of lighting. Kool back story too ;)
Andy: Nice use of brushes :)
May 17th, 2006, 11:18 AM
Tyranx: Thank you. I think it's something about the design of my lines, they are getting a lil generic. I am not bringing any creativity into my 3rd-rate design elements- i.e. the small details.
Ah well, it's not a finished piece so I am being nit-picky I guess...
Chaosrocks: yeah, I agree. Consistency is a good thing! Thx! :-)
Kenny Fuller, Dragon4lunch, bumskee, Speculart - thanks guys!
