  • Another for Steel & Tooth
And to contrast the fleshy Harken might here is their steel clad Atti counterpart, the Royal Queensguard.
Disciplined and brave, loyal to the death, The Royals of the Atti take great pride in their battle and command skills, honed through a lifetime of training, but some sturdy plate doesn't hurt.
Thanks for looking!

  • "Land of a Thousand fables"
And another one for Gwent released with the Crinsom curse expansion 
Basically a magical world created by a wizard for his royal nieces of Touissant, accessed through a magic book.
I was very hyped to do this card since I the associated quest in The Witcher 3 is one of my favorite in-game moments of all time, and I'm pretty happy with how it came out 
Hope you like it! C:

  • A Naked molerat warrior of the Harken Clan, as nature intended and in full battle gear.
Lore hint: the Harken "great ones" are all female, for they are potential Queen Mothers of their clan.
Their counterpart are the Atti Royals, and they hate each other bitterly
Hope you like it! :D

  • The Crinsom Curse expansion for Gwent is out! And thus I got a lot of stuff to post!

This is a card I did long ago for the game, I made the concepts for the design and everything, it was my first official concept art job ever :D even if it was just for an illustration at the time, later it would become an actual faction leader
He's supposed to be the first Berserker and the god of their cult in Skellige, an ancient warrior stuck in the transitive state between bear and man.
Hope you like it!

  • And anotha sketch for the mole rat project
A side to side comparison of two elite warriors from each clan.
The fierce, primal might of the Harken to contrast the brave, stoic discipline of the Atti, and the difference in gear and size.
Thanks for looking! I'm very excited to share more about this personal project with you guys soon! :D

  • Another Molerat!
This time one of fierce the Harken warriors, the rival clan to the armored and valiant Atti we've seen so far, they might not be as well equipped or disciplined but they make up for it greatly in numbers and sheer physical size and ferocity
Hope you enjoy it! more to come soon
Cheers!
