Concept artwork for the "modern" Kalshodar of the upcoming Hegemony Trilogy. More specifically, this helmet belongs to one of The Hundred, survivors of a horrible tragedy who painted their normally black and silver armour white as a sign of mourning.
This concept aims to capture both the ancient origins of the Kalshodar and their evolution into modern times. Dwarves are a practical race and, I think, the idea of improving the old when there's no need to throw it out, would appeal to their nature.
The menacing air of the Kalshodar faceplate took work and I didn't want to overdo it because these are, afterall, the good guys.
More to come soon, I promise, because The Hegemony series has been seriously ignored of late.
