A Ravenking is Crowned, Ascension of Harfengel

After such an exceptionally perilous and wearisome adventure, Corvus and the others would naturally have wanted to rest; however, the fulfilment of the prophecy only laid the groundwork for the rest of the journey.

Retrieving the Crown of Crows was the important part that needed to be done in order for the Corvids to be saved from the coming Darkness, but that alone wouldn’t be enough. A Ravenking needed to be crowned, all of the Corvids rallied together as one Colony, and to get to the Treehold Keep and battle the Rattus Rodentius hordes; the long-sworn enemies of Corvids.

All those that had already arrived in Crowshaven and those that has been living there already, gathered together at the Divine Slab of Forefather to see the Ravenking crowned.

Fittingly, Alwyn the White Raven conducted the ceremony and crowned Harfengel making him Ravenking and Chief of all Corvid Colonies, thus giving him the power and authority to bring them all into one Colony.

The glory of this occasion took everyone’s minds away from one thing.

War was coming…

The Stone Circle and Mirror Pond at Mistglen

There are a vast number of scary things to be happened upon within the confines of an ancient forest, especially one with a reputation such as that held by the Grimwood. One of those scary things is a sudden clearing, such as the clearing in the centre of the Grimwood known as Mistglen.

The open circle of land set within the confines of the Grimwood is a fair few leagues of open space, with a scattering of trees, ponds and meadows. True it its name, there is also a lot of mist in the area of Mistglen and this gives what could be a place of beauty, an eerie and otherworldly atmosphere.

After battling their way through the rough forest terrain, the Corvids wind up in Mistglen, their attention immediately drawn to the Stone Circle that surrounds the Mirror Pond; they decide to head towards it to take rest and recuperate by the water.

They know now from the map that Alwyn gave them that they are about halfway through the Grimwood and this gives the group a sense of relief.

The problem being that it can soon turn to complacency…

A Mysterious Calling from the Entrance to the Graveland

Reaching the end of the Burntwood, the group find the entrance to the Graveland; several Corvid skulls decorate the desolation surrounding the entrance which is a hole in the rocky outcrop that surrounds the entirety of the land they’re heading towards.

Corvid warriors often wear the skulls of their ancestors into battle but seeing the skulls of their kinfolk used in this manner strikes the Conspiracy of Corvids with both fear, and intense anger. The Rattus Rodentius had desecrated the remains of the fallen Corvidae soldiers and the remains have been left in place ever since.

Corvus swore that once the quest was over with and the Darkness passed, if he was still alive he would lead an expedition to retrieve all of the remains of the 6th Corvidae Legion and give them a proper funeral. All those that perished in the Burtnwood would have been reduced to ashes but those who fought their last stand in the Graveland needed to be taken elsewhere.

Suddenly, a strange calling could be heard coming from the entrance to the Graveland; suspicious of a trap set by their enemies; if indeed any remained in this land but intrigued as to the source of the calling, the group decided to push on without stopping to rest.

Reaching the entrance and seeing through to the Graveland, the Corvids brace themselves to discover the source of the strange calling…

Munin & Hugin Arrive with Grim Tidings

Just as Alwyn finished explaining the properties of the Starshade herb, the other two Corvids that had been seen in the distance arrived. Straight into the Watchtower they entered, looking panicked, flustered and exhausted.

The two Corvids introduced themselves as Munin and Hugin from the Colony of Dimhallow in the Northern Rayvik Kingdom. They had traveled a great distance across the open ocean on the North Sea to find the White Raven and bring him a vital warning.

“Our Sages and Wisebirds insisted that we brought the information to you and that you would know what to do with it and how to save us all!”

Munin done the majority of the speaking, with the occasional affirmative coming from Hugin; Munin’s crazed look and spiked hair certainly suited the message that he carried.

“There is a Darkness spreading throughout the world and it is killing our kind rapidly, it seems to be coming from the Far North; we recently lost contact with all Colonies north to Dimhallow and this is what incited the Sages to send us here. A warning must be giving to all of our Kinsfolk!”

Alwyn had been listening intently and as soon as Munin finished talking his posture changed, his eyes seemed to glow, and he began to relate a prophecy from the Dawn of Corvids.

Nocturnal Sun – Oil on Canvas – 11.75″ x 15.75″

For quite some time, I have say here and typed out several lines of poetry, then deleted them. Several short, two sentence storylines, then deleted them. I can’t settle on a singe idea for this painting and have therefore decided to leave any story or meaning down to the viewer’s discretion and imagination.

This painting was a total step out of my comfort zone, I used palette knives as my weapons of choice, and painted solely from imagination, this is a painting that I felt my way around as opposed to hours of studying reference photography.

Once I had it completed, I posted it to a few groups on Facebook to garner some feedback and ideas for a title. I had a lot of different titles to choose from before settling on ‘Nocturnal Sun’ – as chosen by Panagiotis Zacharatos (who won a free print in the process of giving me the title I chose).

So pretty much every stage of this painting has been a totally alien experience and process in comparison to my normal methodical approach to my artwork.

This original artwork is available to buy!
