Ramesses II and all his bling! This was so tedious but also a lot of fun, Thanks Haku for all the help (and moral support :D)!
Like ancient Rome, most of the ruins we see today of ancient Egypt lost all their paint, it’s easy to ignore what colours may have been present. I was a bit hesitant to put down all these crazy saturated colours!

Slowly getting these done one at a time, but still going!
Finally a background that doesn’t take forever! It was quite interesting to try to incorporate the CIV V colour scheme into the context of the drawing, which is the Great St. Bernard Pass.

My liking for this character has went up and down, but as of now all feels are still inappropriate hehehe.
After laying out my itinerary for my visit to the Netherlands, I might not have time to check out Delft, where Stedelijk Museum Het Prinsenhof (where Willem van Oranje lived and was assassinated) and Nieuwe Kerk (where his mausoleum is) are, but at least I can definitely do the fangirl dance around his monument in Den Haag.

I was hoping CIV V’s expansions will eventually add Portugal…but just like Hetalia canon it’s not happening, so off he goes with CIV IV’s Leader, João II. Inspired by Intro of Beyond the Sword expansion.
It also happened to be dear Tatewaki’s birthday yesterday! I’m never good with birthday pics so please forgive me to dedicate this particular sketch to you!

Gustavus Adolphus and his fab beard. I got to use a lot of custom brushes for this one and it was fun! Sweden though. What are you doing what exactly are you aiming at.

Wu Zetian chosen as China’s leader in CIV V is an odd one, since there are other more iconic emperors to choose from in my opinion. Regardless, Empress Wu’s life is very interesting, and she was the main protagonist of the first historical drama 一代女皇 I’ve ever watched. It’s nice if the game helped to spread her name a little bit more.
Tempted to change her headpiece though what is that that is so tame.

By popular demand! I’ll start with the most votes and then by order of mention…
Washington has some of the most interesting VGMs in CIV IV and V, in IV “Washingtons Artillery Retreat” and in V two different arrangements of “America the Beautiful”. Looping these three songs made painting this picture a joy!

Elizabeth and England pic revamped! In case anyone missed the survey, cast a vote for which CIV leader sketch you would like to see coloured first, because while these are really fun to do I can’t paint that fast.

“The Lady of the Wendish Mark welcomes your eminence to - Oh let’s just get this over with. I have a luncheon at 4.” lol I love her intro.
It’s a bit weird to draw a historical figure with a canon design but so very differently. We can just assume this is an older Maria Theresa yes?

I felt like drawing some CIV today…
One of the new leaders added in G&K expansion, Boudica~The concept artist probably took a lot of artistic license when designing her (tartans…yeah idk), but I gotta say it looks much better than the CIV IV version.

Catherine and Russia, coloured.
A long time ago an anon asked me how I did the backgrounds of the Spain and Isabella picture, so I took screencaps of the process of this one (will post at a later time!).

The reason why Sweden is called “Lion of the North”, Gustavus Adolphus. A powerful and rare monarch who had support in all classes of society, founder of Swedish Empire and initiator of a Golden Age.
I sneak peeked on some of the released screenshots and arts of CIV V: Gods and Kings, and was more than excited to find this leader being added to the line up!

“—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
He just has the best face ever, it’s so enjoyable to draw! I don’t think I’ve done this famous historical scene justice though, but uploading it anyways!

I took a stab at colouring the CIV leader sketches. I didn’t thought it would work since the canvas is kind of small, but gladly I absolutely loved the process! I try to follow the background and scheme from CIV V, if suitable. Isabella’s background was The Alhambra I believe.
Please be patient with me with the other ones though, they might not come around so quickly (so many things I want to draw! and perhaps I want to upload them in batches)
