I like Senior Warden Alistair and Older Alistair (presumably on his Calling) the best. They all look amazing, though!
Yurei-Hanatsuki Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
If you're referring to the picture at the bottom-right, that's his outfit from the comics. The one in the center on the bottom is him as a Senior-Warden, and the bottom-right is when he's getting drunker than Oghren at the Hanged Man.
chocomax45 Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013
Alistair does not need to go through the calling his mother was a warden he is born with the taint.
Garchompisbeast Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
hold on

you mean Alistair won't die in his mid 40's like the other Wardens?

I knew his mother was a Warden, but I didn't know that meant he didn't have to go through his calling. :o

Old Alistair .... Rawr 8D

I love it!
"why he look so awesome on every panel?" [2]
anesor Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012
Senior Warden always was my favorite future for him. He and my Wardens left the headaches for Anora to enjoy. That and responsible intrigues with a spot of whimsy keep them busy behind the scenes, so they might pop up anywhere looking out for Warden interests... :D

Mine too!
ItalianEmpress1985 Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
I write him as maturing into a King Arthur-esque type, and he really does look like King Arthur in your bottom right panel.

This is great, I love artwork that features characters at different stages in their life. It's very rare to see old Alistair too and that's a rare treat.

This makes me miss Alistair so much. Especially the middle panel on the bottom row.

I now feel like playing through Dragon Age all over again ... :iconalistairplz::heart:

It's a little bit sad to see all these...Just want the best for him.
hawkeerkul Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2012  Student General Artist
amazing yet again aimo. you draw the best Alistair there is. but tell me.. the last pic... what scenario is that taken from? i can understand King Alistair, drunk Alistair and senior warden Alistair but the last pic.. is he king Alistair from DA2 or is it DA3 related O.o???
Lurockia Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That last drawing is from the Dragon Age comic series called The Silent Grove. He's the King of Ferelden in that scenario and the plot concerns searching for the whereabouts of his father King Maric.
DelphiRose Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2012
Such amazing cards and to put them all together... I want to cheer and cry and snuggle him all at the same time.
jancola Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2012

Amazing, amazing work. The center aims and hits the heart right away as does the drunk Alistair. And I love the last panel where in his old face you can see years of experience and wisdom.:clap:

The center frame made me tear up a little bit...

As usual, your artwork is just so lovely to look at.
RedRacoon09 Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Frame 1: "Damn swaddling blanket..."
Frame 2: "You tricky bastard..."[cat]
Frame 3: "Damn books..."
Frame 4: "Damn darkspawn..."
Frame 5: "My greatest aspiration...was RedRacoon09--![cough, die]"
Frame 6: "Damned Warden, 'royal duty this, royal duty that'..."
Frame 7: "Ffffffakin' Grey Basterds, more like..."
Frame 8: "Fuck y'all, I do what I waunt!"
Frame 9: "Hail Alistair, bitch!"

I stick by my choice to let Loghain live. Just wanted to say, "You need to lock it up! Be a man here!" Yes, I am quoting the Walking Dead, it works.
Istriel Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2012

question! I RP Alsitair on Tumblr [link]

I was wondering if I could make these into Icons? I love them!
LittleBlackDragon Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
In a lot of ways, I think Alistair and I have a lot of common in terms of our beliefs, opinions, and to some extent, personality (though I tend to think for the most part I'm more like hardened Alistair than unhardened, with a couple of exceptions).

I can never bring myself to let him die though. Seeing the panel with Dead Alistair really makes me shiver inside. Or as a drunk. I really think he deserves much for being my Warden's best friend (or love interest, in several cases) who was there with them until the end. The least my Warden could do was protect him and give him a show of honor and gratitude. So, I almost always make him king, though having him remain a Grey Warden would be a future I would be happy for him to pursue as well.

He's one of the character's I relate to the most, and when I'm having a terrible day, I know there's someone like me who went through worse. (Ok, he's fictional, but...I can't help it.)

Thank you so much. I think this does a great deal of justice for him. The Grey Warden one on the bottom middle and the one diagonally up right from it are my favorites, as well as the one where he's playing with the cat.
