Don Quixote de La Mancha by randis Don Quixote de La Mancha by randis
I finished a new Illustration. I am sure everyone knows Don Quixote, so no need for a big introduction.
I very much enjoyed reading about his his legendary adventures when i was young and this is the way i picture him.

Image was Painted in Photoshop with Wacom I3 in about 8-9 hours.

Hope you like it
Cheers
Randis

Rocinante looks so badass here. I bet this is how he pictures himself, since he seems just as delusional as his owner in the books.

I am interested in your artwork of Don Quixote. I work for a small college and I would like to use your artwork as part of my program poster. However, before they let me use it I must get written permission from you. Would you be willing to provide me permission to use this artwork? The use would be limited to my program posters and publicity. Credit for your work would be displayed as you prefer. Please email me at dm46s@yahoo.com for further discussion.
Thanks for you time and the nice artwork.
Daniel Sherry

Дон Кихот это последний борец за справедливость за правду ну а рисовать его убогим это высмеивание это плохо

Great work, but the mills in the background are not Spanish mills, are similar to Netherlands mills.
The mills of 'La Mancha' are like this: [link]
