Imperivm by JonHodgson Imperivm by JonHodgson

An image for a promotional banner for the card game Imperivm.

This was a huge undertaking, the original painting is 13500 pixels across, and each figure and pillar is on a seperate layer to the city, so each element is usable in its own right - and the city detail exists behind the figures!

Each figure represents a faction in the game.

The characters are well done, as is the city. None of the collumns are quite right in proportion or detail for the classical orders, which spoils it from a pedantic standpoint.

Thanks! :)
Those guys in there are 4 faction heads from the game, and each represents (as far as I know) a faction you can play, each with different strengths and strategies.

I really liked how to coloured the background, esp!! since they are so small...haha. Are they titans??

Not titans per say, though the dude in armour is related to a god, in the mythology of the game, I beleive.

A faction is a group of people that hold a similar belief.

I guess the pillars in some way also represents the different factions, right? Really nice picture!

They do indeed - they are on seperate layers too so that they can be pulled out and used individually. Thanks!

Hmmm I'm not entirely sure. The city did take a long time to paint though. Proabably a week or maybe 10 days. It was earlier this year and I'm prone to forget that kind of stuff!

What are the factions?

Lets see, from left to right, and as I understand it:
Cunning politician, down to earth man of the people/mercantile, warrior, priestess, and they each represent a faction featuring similar attributes.
