I made these shields to the challenge site Polycount called "noob 2d challenge - November!" The rules were:
Starts November 2nd and ends on November 16th
It can be fantasy, sci-fi, steam punk, whatever genre you can think of.
It has to be something usable for a single human sized character
It needs to be finished to your digital but starting / designing steps can be traditional.
Then I thought about making these shields. The first sketch is based on a simple shield made by humans. The second is a magic shield designed by dwarves. It will light your way and you protect.
Thank you all.
