The “Red Night” celebration is the anniversary of the White Council dethroning the “False King” of Vaal’lin. Every year citizens dress in white and dip their hands and fore-arms in red ink. In later years the Vaal’lin ladies would have their hands and arms intricately painted in red ink. The red is to symbolize the the literal “blood on the hands”, reminding all of those who lost their lives in the civil conflict. The white of course represents the White Council.

A darker piece of Vaal’lin concept art which aptly reflects the darker tone that this project has.
The Blight spread quickly throughout the Qumar province. It crumbled kingdoms and from the ruins it carved out a new one for itself. Blighthunters went from door to door tearing families apart, carting off the infected to the city of Anteal and disposing of those who died from the sickness.
A new plague is hard to fight, but a plague that is sentient can be almost impossible to defeat.
The war against the Blight lasted for years. Only the Vaal’lin remained untouched as all others fell to the Blight. But when the war was over, and there was no life left to infect within the Qumar province…not even the Vaal’lin could be found.

I apologize for the lack of updates lately. I started a new job about three months back now and my free time has been scarce to non existent. However today I finally found some time to start something new and figured I would post a work in progress shot with a small update on why there have been no updates lately.
Unfortunately by the time my weekend comes around (which falls in the center of the week for me) I find myself fatigued and all I want to do is sit and play Team Fortress 2 or Skyrim. But I have been trying to break out of that routine for the last couple of weeks and try getting back into doing something creative.

45 minute painting in Photoshop with the base done in Al.chemy. Was also trying out some new brushes.

Books are still the core to the Vaal’lin Linking technology, but they also took it a step further. Each inhabitant of Vaal’lin is equipped with a personal Linking stone that is worn on the chest. Such an item is so common place within society that fashion has evolved to include said stones within the design.
At the core of the device is an extremely small linking book that is connected to the rock interface allowing for a Link to be made upon contact. Similar technology was used with the Vaal’lin Public Link Service.
