In Knightly Valor, we see the same knight pictured in the token card from the last post. Here he is escorting an elderly woman through a the neighborhood he patrols. She is appreciative of the safety he provides in what is probably a rough neighborhood. Beware Ravnican purse-snatchers!
I rarely do complete character designs for two dimensional images. Rather, the design is tailored to work within the a specific abstract composition. So it was a little odd to be constrained by making the knight exactly the same, but work in two different compositions.
An early attempt. Notice the conical helmet. This was deemed too medieval looking and changed.
Although this is a depiction of a chivalry, it couldn't come off as too sentimental. I didn't want this guy to look too much like a Boy Scout. This was is the flaw in the sketch above.
