Ravage of the Blight | Dragon Age by Urbanator Ravage of the Blight | Dragon Age by Urbanator
Wow, this took a long time to do! Admittedly, building scenebuilds usually does take a lot more effort.
Having played Dragon Age: Origins for the first time recently, I just had to make a scene with those ruthless Darkspawn.

I wanted to portary this scene not so much as a battle, but a slaughter, with the
settlement in flames and the few defenders left being completely overrun by the horde.

if you want my opinion, the disciples are the best type of darkspawn to admire, as in terms of the player vision, they have way more details in their design(like chainmail and pieces of soft clothing strapeds to the fonded metal plates of the armor), facial expression and they are overall more menacing looking because of the more worked out design, now as in inside the lore and narrative, they are sentient darkspawn, with fully developed speech capability(the speech itself its raw and flawed but that just ad the realism of creatures that just came to regain consiousness in a small time), capable of choice and free will, they feel, some of them even choose when they should kill or spare, to decide to go to war with the rest of thedas or to look for an end to the bloodshed

i know that the purpuse of that beautifull work it's to show how fucking awesome and brutal are the darkspawn raids, but i couldn't help but to notice the diciple giving orders tho the horde, very good work indead

In all honesty, I would have used the regular Hurlocks instead of the
Disciples but I did not have the resources at the time when I was
making the image (I do now though :V). I would have still had at least
one Disciple acting as a leader unit, unlike here were I just had to
spam loads of them.

Thanks though! :D

now that you mention, your drawn was based off the darkspawn raids at the time of urthemiel's blight, so your right, having the hurlocks would make more sense HEHEHEHEHEHE
and you welcome, you deserve all praises for this work

very powerful and realistic, it gives you the right feeling of what an attack of a darkspawn horde should be, a sensation you don't easily get while ingame :wow:

later. Very fun!

Do my eyes deceive me, or do I spot a few Skyrim swords in this picture? Steel swords, to be exact? If so, well done on using available resources. They work well with Dragon Age.

This is an awesome picture, in both senses of the word. You've captured the sense of terror and chaos the Blight would invoke extremely well. The only question I have is why are all the Hurlocks Disciples?
Reply
:iconurbanator:
Urbanator Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah, that was simply cause of model constraints - at the time I did not have access
to the regular Hurlock soldiers or the other variations. I do now though. So instead
I had to opt to using the Disciples in this scene heh.
But thanks! :D
