Redwall - The Warrior by Realms-Master Redwall - The Warrior by Realms-Master
"I stand here in this world alone,
no kin of mine to take the sword,
no son or daughter of my own,
a bitter and a sad reward,

but Redwall in its hour of need,
will bring forth one to follow me,
to that one, valiant in deed,
I leave a warrior's legacy..."

~Legend of Luke



Thank you to all who helped me with critiques and suggestions, I'm actually happy with how this has turned out.

Martin the Warrior is my all-time favorite Redwall hero, and he's an inspiration to me. I wanted to draw something that does justice to him, not sure if I pulled it off or not, but I leave it to you to determine the meaning of the picture.

Martin the Warrior/Redwall (c) Brian Jacques

Gorgeous atmosphere and realistic landscape design, I like the perspective of the Abbey from the edge of Mossflower. I think this is such a wonderful interpretation of Martin and the inclusion of that passage from Legend of Luke was so suiting

I was speechless when I first saw this, and stunned when I read the poem. This is an amazing piece of artwork. I love it so much. Martin is my all-time favorite Redwall character. Rose is my second. I wish she could have lived.... I have the Legend of Luke book and it's one of my favorites (my favorite being High Rhulain). This is really my favorite piece of Redwall artwork I've seen all year :D

Bless you, your comment is so sweet. I'm very glad you like the piece, and I'm with you about Martin - he's my favorite Redwall character of all, and probably one of my top fav literary characters of all time!

If you enjoy great Redwall art, look up Chichapie on here too, he inspires my Redwall art too! :D

If I were ever to make a movie off this, I'd make so after that martin states his legacy, the movie would show a montage of His father and mother in love followed by Martin in love with Laterose as sad music plays, then the montage fades out showing old aged martin as he falls asleep under a tree on a hill. Like the end of Godfather part III.

Aye, but it's kind of neat to think that it's also talking about all of us, who in spirit take up Martin's sword to guard and carry on Redwall's legacy. :)
