Guardian of the Realm by WesTalbott Guardian of the Realm by WesTalbott
It's been awhile since I did a legit illustration of Alan and not just a concept idea. So here's His most recent iteration fully rendered and placed in a world.

Don't steal it.

I don't think I can express how impressed I am with your art. I did a search looking for people's art that was reminiscent of Justin Gerard's. I hope you'll be as complemented as I intend when I say... I found some. This especially is fantastic. I've spent the last 3 hrs perusing your art. Maybe someday we can do a project together.

Thanks! That is quite the complement, Justin is a friend and also probably the artist I look up to most.

I don't have the pleasure of actually calling him my friend, but he has been very kind and helpful to me the two times I've interacted with him. And at this point in my life he is one of the artist I respect most as well. You are in good company, Wes :-) If you get a chance, check out my blog: genowrites.blogspot.com I've recently started posting some story bits from a series I'm working on that you might enjoy. Either way, thanks for sharing your gift with the world. And... if I may say, I give you super props for item one on your influence map. I share the same first influence. Have a grand evening, man.

Gah!!!! I made this my wallpaper I'm so in love with it!!! Is this an illustration for a book, or something? I noticed that 'Alan' floats around in your gallery, but what he's from I've not figured out yet.

Haha he's just a personal character of mine. This was originally designed to resemble a magazine cover spread although I never did a mock up of a magazine so it's pretty much just a wallpaper.

Oh too bad! :D It certainly is intriguing. If you ever do more with this world, let me know! It screams Epic, and I love me some epic! ^.^

oh wow! this character has such a presence and an air to him, no matter what setting you put him in! i love all the textures in this piece and the attention to all the fine details; all the things we don't notice unless we're looking, but would notice right away if they weren't there. once again, your work is just awesome!

Sir you have outdone your self. The nicks in the armor and sword make such a big difference from the past ones, and nice birds in the background ;). I am impressed.

haha thanks, I used to not put nicks in stuff in his gear cus he was a fairly new knight that hadn't been in many battles, but then I realized they make everything more epic.

I can't wait to crack a pack and see your name or meet you at a tourney. I met Jeremy Jarvis during the Darksteel prerelease and now he's running their art dept now I think.
