Ultima by SirTiefling Ultima by SirTiefling
Here's The True Avatar, the real protagonist of the legendary Ultima Saga, looking sooo virtuous. With the Avatar, her girly companions: Raven, Shamino, Desbet and Mariah. (100 percent girly indeed: Shamino the Ranger likes crossdressing so he's automatically girly, and Desbet the Gargoyle is a genderless creature and thus 50-50.)

The Lady Avatar knows what "a paladin" is. Everyone does except the canonical Avatar, the retarded one we saw in Ultima IX: Ascension. This picture is based on "the original plot" that was scrapped and replaced with... a piece of scrap.

Tools: Mouse, Paint Shop Pro 7

PS. Composition reference: [link]

I was thinking "Ultima X: That's A Paladin"...

Tool : mouse?! *whistles in sheer amazement* That's... impressive, to say the least.
Also, this piece is absolutely gorgeous. You've got the 'quietly epic' composition nailed up. Mind if I favorite it?

Pretty nice line-up of characters I must say. I like the paladin's flaming sword in particular.

A huge disappointment. If a developer is going to make a video game sequel, they should know the original(s) and the publisher should give them enough time and money. :(

The Avatar is the false prophet of an immortal tyrant's self imposed philosophy. Praise the Great Cosmic Serpents! Death to Lord British!

Now that that's out of the way, really nice work here! If Lord British was really as progressive and original as he claimed to be, he would have made the Avatar canonically female.

The real Avatar used to be a woman but something very evil happened between SI and U8... The Guardian Curse also reduced her/his IQ.

No, it was a being far more evil than the Guardian that did that.

Awesome work. Sucks that you couldn't make a female avatar in both Ultima 8 and Ultima 9.

Great work. I miss these games so much. I`m Hoping Shroud of the Avatar will be decent but it seems like a more multiplayer focused game.

Where is Sherry the mouse? She never showed up in Ultima IX: Ascension

SirTiefling Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2013
I rescued Sherry the mouse from the doomed Britannia right before U9 started. That's why she wasn't there.

Did you know? She is a painter! Does digital art these days. She is also very grateful that I rescued her and gives me full credit. :)

There's like, what - 4 or five pieces of Wizardry fan-art I've seen here? By comparison, Ultima has a lot of fan art.

If you have the original Dungeon Siege anywhere, try out Ultima: Lazarus if you haven't already... excellent take on Ultima V!

Unfortunately what I have is the Steam version of DS, which includes and allows no mods since it's not a "real" version of the game. I can't run the Broken World expansion on the Steam version of DS2 for instance because it says I don't have DS2 installed. I'll have to keep this in mind though if I ever get a real copy. :)

If you can get a physical media copy of DS1, you won't regret it.

I've tested every Ultima game except the "Worlds of Ultima" and "Online". Fully completed everything from VII to IX. I still consider Serpent Isle one of the bestest games ever. :)

And IX one of the worst. :(

Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar drove me crazy. I spent hundreds of hours on it and finally got so lost I gave up. I remember stumbling down into the dungeons and accidentally finding the key level before I had the 8 stones, and then after I found the last stone I couldn't find the level ever again. Lol. :D

I did eventually come up with a plot involving the realm and eight characters representing the eight classes. I even did renders of my characters. [link]
