Anders 8.5″x11″ Dragon Age Print
I created this illustration to visualize the progression of the Dragon Age character, Anders, from his lighthearted beginnings to the darkness of his later years. I worked to include a lot of detail from the buildings in the background, to the details of his two outfits and the two mage staffs.
Anders, a mage we first meet in Awakening, starts off as a happy-go-lucky refugee escaped from the Circle of Magi, the tower in the background on the left of the illustration. He brightens the party atmosphere with his jokes and observations, and at one point, you can even gift him with a little orange cat which he promptly names Ser Pounce-a-lot.
Over time, he befriends a wayward spirit of Justice trapped outside of the Fade, who urges him to look around at the injustices happening to mages everywhere. When we meet Anders again in Dragon Age 2, his outlook is much more serious as he has turned his attention toward freeing his fellow mages from the Templars' iron grip, at any cost. As the story progresses, his actions end up shaking the very foundations of the city of Kirkwall – and the whole of the world of Thedas.
