Astarion and His Majesty

This oil portrait is my homage to Baldur’s Gate 3‘s iconic Vampire Elf, Astarion.

Painted in Oil on wood panel, I have portrayed Astarion holding His Majesty. I wanted to paint him in the style of a Flemish Renaissance portrait, one of my favourite styles of art.

 

The idea behind the painting:

After investing over 700 hours in playing Baldur’s Gate 3, and developing a burgeoning obsession with the character Astarion Ancunin, a vampire spawn, I resolved to merge my two passions by creating a portrait.

I researched the paintings from one of my favourite periods of art, Flemish Renaissance, drawing inspiration from its aesthetics to guide the look I wanted to achieve for Astarion’s portrait.
