Shaped by the Winter by Aldriann Shaped by the Winter by Aldriann
Another of my....sort of concept art? Here we have a Grey Warden with capital W, because she's from the great, feared and distant Weisshaupt Fortress. Not much of a cosy or charming place, if you remember the few words Riordan said on the matter, and this is not quite the lady with whom you would like to drink your afternoon tea. Veera Dellean is the name, by the way, and I hope you'll have a chance to see her again.....in a year or two....:B

Doing this was a long long long fun (booo, speedpainting is a distant dream of mine). I wanted to make the armour visually similar to the GW uniforms from DAII - with that amazing breast plate with (YAY!) griffons! xD

Notes: I finally discovered that custom brushes are the biggest fun. And the Snow White and the Huntsman OST I was listening to during the work was a great inspiration either!

Also I tried to learn from my mistakes and so I was very cautious not to over-shadow, over-lighten or over-saturate it. The result is not perfect but at least it won't burn up your eyes as the other things I've done sofar. And that's a huge step to better tomorrows, heee! :woohoo:


The world of Dragon Age belongs to BioWare.

I love the armor! It'd be awesome to have pieces like that in the game.

Thank you! I am a dummy! 
Hell yeah....not that I'd like to celebrate this particular design of mine, but some armour in game (especially DA: O) is just totally illogical. Hope stays there will be more realistic gear in DA:I.  :stinkeye:

I know. There should be warmer gear for snowy climates and lighter gear for warmer climates. I really do love it though.

Exactly. And above all, no oh-so-huge-cleavage-armour type for women. (:
Thanks again. (:

Nice piece!
It blends a practical armor design, not showing any skin or having any boobplate with a character that is clearly hardened by the ages and is still feminine to a long stretch

Heee, thank you very much! :aww: Yeah - one thing I'll never understand is the popular concept of fantasy female armour - "the less it covers, the higher defense it has". xD I'm afraid I'll never be able to design something so.....strange... (:
