150 strong by Gido 150 strong by Gido
Took the time to revisit and old piece and update the art a bit --> gido.deviantart.com/art/Bregan…

From left-to-right, for the uninitiated:
Entreri, Rai-guy, Jarlaxle, Berg'inyon, Kimmuriel

One of the main changes i did here was i wanted to try and render Jarlaxle's cape.... not to mention depict the rest of Bregan D'aerthe.... also, i gave him Crenshinibon to play with.

Daily Deviation

Given 2015-04-02
150 strong by Gido is an epic painting with such a tense atmosphere unlike any other! Using the limited color palette gives it a malicious and corrupting beauty. ( Suggested by DragonflyAndromeda and Featured by TheCreativeJenn )

Spine tingling.

Gods damn it, they need to make a Drizzt live-action movie or an anime already. In fact, I can so see this scene as part of an anime intro!

I absolutely love this piece Jarlaxle and Entreri are two characters I never thought I'd like, and I now LOVE whenever they're part of the scene. Beautiful work :o

I can't believe I almost missed this one! Jarlaxle looks so good here, honestly the posing for each of the characters holds true to their personalities. I really like that although Entreri looks a bit out of place among the rest, he still holds his ground. He iiis arguable the best assassin on the surface.

After seeing you mindflayer pic today I browsed back through your gallery,  your FR art always makes me ache to fly my geek flag high,  I especially like the Orta Request,  the mind flayer, but most especially this piece which so wonderfully captures what I imagine the personality of Breagan'dearth to be like. 
Keep doin what you do!

I have always loved the dynamic of Bregan D'aerthe... so as much as possible I always try to make sure to let each of their personalities come through.

Thank you so much.

I came across your art thanks to a person on facebook imitating Jarlaxle to promote the book series. 
I've been a long-time fan before that but I've always loved these guys the most. 
Thank you so much for such a wonderful portrayal you really nailed it. :hug:

A well deserved DD (now that I'm late to the party) and I'm soooo damn glad to see you having redone this (I know I faved it ages ago but now I get to comment and ogle and ramble about how amazing it is....). I always love to see how artists have grown and HOT DAMN HAVE YOU EVER :D  Excellent work, my friend, excellent :D  Love Kimmys (I'd be dangled over a drider pit for that if he knew LOL) expression, serious with a hint of sarcastic smirk. Also the way you portray Artemis is spot on. That expression of 'yeah i'm here but i don't really want to be" came across perfectly :D  How long did it take you to get the gradients in the cape juuuuuuuust  right?? LOL Just freaking amazing :iconclapplz:

oh man.... that cape.... had to figure out a way to render it without it looking too tacky...
in the end, instead of going all-out rainbow on that thing i just stuck with a few warm colors...
i'm actually really glad with how it turned out myself.

I love me some Jarlaxle! He and Drizzt are unique compared to the rest of the drow society, which I love! Though Drizzt is hated, Jarlaxle is tolerated, and both are respected for their skills.

Entreri's dagger makes an appearance. That weapon was bad ass.

Well deserved DD, and nice to see the link to your older version of this scene. You have developed your art and style a great deal since then.

I love this. So few make pictures of these badass! 

It takes me sometime to get used that Kimmuriel is man. So feminine name makes me believe that he is she actually.  I have read books in Finnish and we have only one pronomine meaning she/he, so you can't se characters sex right away. 
Anyway. Kimmuriel is maybe best one in this pic. He is so so lovely!

that's actually really interesting... i guess with the way salvatore defines kimmuriel's mannerisms i can see why he could be perceived as female.
