DrDII : Hrun the Barbarian by Merlkir DrDII : Hrun the Barbarian by Merlkir
The first illustration I did for a czech RPG called Dračí Doupě 2 (Dragon's Lair 2).

It depicts an iconic character of the brand - it was my pleasure to design how he actually looks! He's featured in many "how to" example texts, but afaik he's never been illustrated.

And I hope it's not to anyone's (ok, to many people's) disappointment - the DrD sequel is trying to go in a slightly more serious and historical looking style. So he's no oiled naked barbarian, more like a late bronze/early iron age warrior.

------------------

Done in ArtRage using the pencil and watercolor tools. I friggin' love this software!

I know that you're already illustration guru, Merlkir, but are you content with his left arm?

I'm sure you can do better. (Sorry.)

And because I am an idiot who doesn't value his free time on weekends, I did some touch ups on the bloody arm. ;)

I'm not saying I won't be fixing anything ever. More like that I don't have the time now and may get to it before the book is done.

1) I'm not a guru. Don't insult me.
2) I'm content with it. I have only so much time to spend on a single illustration and I've already spent enough on this one.

I don't know who chose the name of this not so barbarian warrior, but it really has nothing to do with the Hrun the barbarian from the discworld series written by Terry Pratchett.
Will there be more names like that, quoted from different fantazy sources?
