The Long Knives of Alyn Shir - Wides by Gorrem The Long Knives of Alyn Shir - Wides by Gorrem
One of my tasks was to illustrate short stories based on important characters from the Amalur IP. These stories were never published and doubtfully will be.

The first and only one I was able to do before the studio closed was Alyn Shir's. These were very fun and I learned a lot from doing them.

These are some of the smaller illustrations to support certain scenes. Doesn't make much sense without the context, but a big part the story was conspiracies if that's any hint. Lots of Gnomish treachery and backstabbing, that sort of thing.

Pointy Dwarf: I knew it! I knew it was you!
Other Dwarf: Me? What'd I do?
Pointy Dwarf: You killed the human queen of the realm!
Other Dwarf: The who of the what now?


Dark Elf: *grunt* Okay, I hope you appreciate how far forward I'm leaning to whisper this into your ear. This knife is, like, eighty times longer than it needs to be.
Human Queen: *gasps* I thought I felt a twinge in my back an hour ago!
Dark Elf: ... and you didn't think to turn around while a thin piece of metal skewered your... entire abdominal cavity?
Human Queen: A lady keeps her deportment in all situations.
Dark Elf: *sigh* I guess it's okay this thing is cursed to blame it's every kill on someone random. Also I'm surprised you're not yet dead.
Human Queen: I told you. Deportment. *dies*
