This is a villain in my current RPG.

Done on 11" by 14" sketchbook paper while listening to Iron Maiden's The Trooper.

    Done well. I like the detail on the armour, fist and the sword. The expression on his face is effective and barbaric, and it's not hard to tell he's a bad guy.
    My little bit of constructive criticism: the tattoo on his face may be a little bit overpowering to the rest of the picture. You find yourself more drawn towards that and miss out on the finer details. To counter this, I'd make the main outlines (armour, hands, sword) thicker or darker. The way they are at the moment, everything almost seems to be blending together because the lines are quite light, almost faded.
    Great work Smile

      Thank you, I remember drawing this one and thinking the tattoo was way too dark and that I had gone too far when I tried to make the tattoo the focus point.

    Ohhh thats nifty!! Suggestion: not sure if you want to mess with it now, but I think it you added a little darker contrast into his hand then on the left side, between the cape and him, it would give it stronger presence

      I see what you mean. That's a good idea and I wish I could of had it sooner especialy when I was drawing it.
      Oh well, live and learn.

    • Jul 8, 2005

      Thank you, I was realy trying to make this guy look evil and dangerous.
  • May 28, 2005
    eeeeeeeeeeeekkkkkkkk. He's just so scary!
    • May 28, 2005
      If he's scary then I did this one correctly, thank you for the compliment.
      • May 28, 2005
        *laughs* (my aunt taught me that) I like that picture. It's very cool. I like the tattoo on his face.
        • May 29, 2005
          Thanks, the idea of the tattoo was one of the reasons I drew this one.
  • May 27, 2005
    Stupid me... I meant Barakah from MK. Such is the life of me. I can be so scatter-brained sometimes. Just thought I'd correct myself before people started pelting me with stones saying," It's Barakah, you idiot!" *smiles*

    He's pretty scary, Dennis. The sort of thing nightmares are made of. I love the 3-dimensional aspect of it. It looks like he wants to jump out and slit your throat. Fantastic!
    • May 26, 2005
      Thank you, I had originaly designed him with hair but he didn't quite look as menacing for some reason with long hair.
      • May 27, 2005
        Yes, he's alot more fearsome with his bald head. He reminds me a little of Bakah from the Mortal Combat games. Only, Therin has his volume turned way, way up!
        • May 28, 2005
          Hehehehehe...Thanks Kristy, i'll have to check out Bakah. which MK game is he in?
          • May 28, 2005
            Um, all of them, I think. He's in the most recent one. I think it's called Mortal Kombat Deception or Deadly Alliance or something. I don't really remember the name, actually. My son played it most of the time. I think he's in all of them. But don't quote me on that. *smiles*
  • May 21, 2005
    AHHHH! He is one scary-ass looking dude. He looks like he needs a hug... If I had to fight him I would be like, okay I'll give you whatever you want...just don't hurt me...

    Anyway, this is really cool. He looks extremely evil, the shading is great, and I especially like his hand and sword...great job!
    • May 23, 2005
      Thank you for the great comment and he probably does need a hug.
  • Mar 20, 2005
    I like this pic too. And love the tats
    • Mar 21, 2005
      I'm glad you like the tattoo. I wasn't sure if I did it correctly.
  • Mar 20, 2005
    Holy shite this pic is awesome!
    • Mar 20, 2005
      Thank you, I was hoping someone would like it.
    • Mar 22, 2005
      Thank you for saying so. Did I reply to this already? Oh well, if I did thank you again.
      • Mar 23, 2005
        yes, you did but it's all good. I also wanted to mention that you can tell you spent a long time on that girl's armor, it really looks shiny and realiztic! ;-)
