Alarik felt a twinge of terror crawl down his neck and into his spine....the orc must have stood eight feet tall and was nearly twice as wide as he. Numerous times during the first onslaught of the horde he attempted to fill it's cursed hide with arrows but to no avail. Was it magic? Perhaps his armor.... maybe his axe...it's difficult to be sure. One thing for certain, he had slain Thomas Bravesword, the mightiest of the remaining defenders. This did not bode well for East Keep. Thomas was a great hero and his presence and that of his sword 'Fiend Slayer', which now lay smashed, was a great morale lifter for the soldiers that guarded this border land. What will come of us....what will come of our families if the horde sweeps through this gate like a river...as it is clearly poised to do? Wait...what's this.....he dares touch 'Fiend Slayer'?!!

Comment, people, comment! Why has no one said anything yet? *cough cough* Anyway, you did a very nice job with the coloring! Looks like you've still got all the detail in the armor...always a plus. What did you color it with? Anyway, I'm impressed. Hope to see more soon!

That's a great pic. But I makes me depressed because your pictures are sooooooo good and mine are just plain CRAP!! I like how his sword is all broken at the top.

This whole gallery is stunning but this pic caught my eye in particular. A great "snapshot" of a larger battle.

:-) Allen R Palmer replies: "Thanks....is a little darker then I wanted....will probably end up redoing it someday. Thanks again 2"

Hmm, broken sword, wont do much in battle lol, but... A very good-looking touch.

:-) Allen R Palmer replies: "you are absolutley correct....its not his though (at least it wasnt his)....he's just killed the previous owner and is taunting the defenders of a keep with it...his weapon is hanging at his hip"

Wow. For some reason, I actually like the colored version better. You did a very nice job; the character really seems to come to life here.
