My take on Vortigern- a king of the Britons, later to be defeated by Uther Pendragon, father of King Arthur. Shown here as a Romano-British Warlord with his white dragon banner.
I didn’t think outside the box and just went with King Arthur himself, but I did at least try and make it interesting to look at. Things like a heroic pose, color palate, shading, etc. It’s always fun to push my creativity with the HeroMachine tools at hand.
Challenge closed. Results posted shortly.
