THE EMPEROR'S COURT

To read the Khan Chronicles from the beginning, go to the November archives of the Trowbridge Chronicles.

Keno felt overwhelmed by the gravity of the situation at the Giloh outpost, but he was briefly distracted by the splendor that surrounded him in Emperor Nang's court. How would the emperor respond to Keno's request for help? Our story continues...

He looks so tiny and vulnerable standing there all alone in the big hall. But he is a tough little guy! You always amaze me the detail you get in such a small space! I just love his feet and his stance!

Great job!

That floor indeed! This image is different from the rest, it's all about simple lines and shapes, I like it very much, it's very suitable for the action taking place. Keno looks so small and at the mercy of the emperor.

you are an amazing artist, I just love the reflections of the marble columns in the floor.

What a marvelous point of view. I would be feeling small too, in that marble columned court walking down that oh so long red carpet. I love the reflections in the polished surface of the floor. And to think I am intimidated by something that is only 36 inches high! You are amazing!
