The town of Derth

"Tales of Maj' Eyal" (ToME) splash screen and Steam trading card. Final revision and process stages.
Derth is a small starting town and trading post for the most adventurers in ToME, populated primarily by Halflings and Humans. Hence the two aspiring halfling heroes - a rogue and an archmage. The idea for the image came from me trying to figure a believable way for handling the lamps in the gameworld, when usually both pc hands are quite full :)

Last revision. More shadows & lights. Corrected the characters' proportions and other tweaks
