We finally finished this piece! Was a happy collab between me and :iconnina-the-tiny: and I loved all the fun we had mixing and matching ideas. Had some great crits from :iconzorm: whom I think really helped us sort out the bugs. I enjoyed working on it. I always learn alot working with fellow malazans.

Myself and Nina liked the idea of Rake taking on multiple Seguleh but we were aware it may not be 100% cannon considering Seguleh traditions. We reduced our original intention of a horde to three or so fighters. with higher ranked Seguleh waiting to jump in. That aside we really wanted the picture to scream dynamic movement and agility so we have the seguleh dodging and diving as rake rushes forward. Nina covered the clean lines and worked out the original colour schemes I kinda went over it and detailed everything, (my main focus was working up Rakes armor and the BG). We tried several arrangements with advise and decided to stick with this.

Thanks, We enjoyed the process. Always fun to collab, the results themselves proved I had a grasp on things I didn't think I could manage.

Planning a few more Collabs with friends and fans of the series. :)

Awesome stuff man, I think staggering the distance between the characters in the composition really helped to add to the believability of the environment, which is also really cool.

You two did a great job with this! I like how this picture 'lives' and how you depicted the 'depth' of the fighting area.
