"They stood proud, husband and wife, up, on the last free cliff. Beneath them, the orchish hordes of Lum'Zadul were ready for the final assault.
-May we meet again down the great halls of Valhalla, wife, said Gunthar.
-May you stand at the right of Thorr, husband, wispered Gritta.
And as the orcs attacked, hurling along the narrow path to their abode, they kissed for a last time".

wow- what a pic.
the musculature is awesome except for one part that kinda grossed me out....his right calf- its too big...looks swollen. that sword is one of the best drawings of a sword i have ever seen....awesome.

This is a nice pic. I am going to move it to the concept thread as you have a nice concept behind the characters
Bad cropping is my only comment...you shouldn't crop the femal off at the bottom...it would look better if there was a little space there

Tempest811 - first of all, great name. Second, he has to be big and swollen, that's how I intended 'cause, whatever you may say, he looks awfull strong and determined. I gues you don't wanna upset someone like him. The swords, well... hers or his?
Dan, nice to hear of you again. Sorry for the bad croping, but when I start drawing is not like I think before what I wanna do. In fact, the girl was the first and then the man. First there was intended for a dragon to sit behind her, wings spread, roaring, but I kinda change my mind.

but when I start drawing is not like I think before what I wanna do.
Ya I don't always think of what I am going to draw until I start, but I still map it out before adding details so my composition looks good.
another awesome drawing :)
what is the size of the paper you draw on.? Do you only use a pencil, what kind?

awesome details, really well done. although in my opinion, the man looks a lot better than the woman, who is in a very strange pose, and just doesnt look as good as teh male character.
This is definately a good sketch/drawing...It wasnt done in Photoshop was it ?
Also, the Male bears a striking resemblance to Conan :)

After many years of Schwarzenegger domination on the Conan character it's no wonder you find resemblances. But no, my barbarian is no cimerian in origins, but a nordsman. Maybe I was influenced by the movie when I was drawing this, I don't realy remember. And, no, it was not realised in Photoshop. Just some paper and a pencil.

Avatar, your 2D is amazing! are you going to color this at all? or is it done?
09-06-2003, 09:11 PM
I never thought to try to color them, it seems to me there would be a great risk to tuin them. They look cooler in black and white. But I think your ideea deserves consideration.
hi Avatar, Your nickname is Avatar and you donít have an Avatar :D why? :hmm: :p :)

In the begining it was because I didn't know how to make one (I still don't know), but then I thought is better that I don't have one . Think at the paradox it would create: an Avatar having his own avatar:roll:

Avatar - awesome drawing.
Please let me apologize before you see my next post, I usually do not alter others artwork but I was inspired by your drawing. I'm sorry but this is not intended to offend you at all.

please dont hurt me.

Well, I don't kill mortals at their first mistake. But pay heed, Damocles's sword lies upon you:D
Seriously, you've done a nice job there. The colors seam too strong but I gues this is because you had to cover the pencil shading. Maybe I can see something of your own. Visit your site perhaps.
