I had two days to draw this, at the time, for my next game session. I know it looks rushed but I realy tried to make it look like I took my time. This is what Roth's look was when I first introduced him to my players. The concept look of the sword (BLACK RAZOR) was made by one of my players (Alvin J Balajadia)Check out his gallery. He's a realy good artist who inspired me to add detail to my drawings. Several comments have showed interest in the story behind this piece so here a quick summary. Fighting a war against the King of Arbaulin his... son. Roth is confronted by the only woman he has ever loved after the death of his wife. 'The boy is evil Kirsten', Roth attempts to explain but one look upon her tear laden face and he knows that although she loves him she will not turn against their son. 'He is our son Roth, and I will let you bring no harm to him!' she replies. That was all she had to say and Roth knew that this would be their last embrace together. Well there it is. It's kinda lame but then again i'm not a writer. I leave that to my friend.  And as though this description couldn't be any longer, here's a poem for Roth, to help him cheer up! Song of Roth When the heart becomes cold, a forge unlit When the soul becomes dark, though just a bit When the cry for war, is heard from within It becomes hard, so very hard to win When ebon'd steel stirs about at your side When reason seems no longer to abide When dark forces tell you of their needs It becomes hard, so hard to succeed When the pillar of life begins to fall When dark wings cast a shadow upon all When you have given all that is possible to give It becomes hard, so hard to live.

                      The sword is an evil and sentient magical sword and the runes on it do say something if you look at it sideways. It says, 'Forgive me my love but at least your war is over'.

I think this is my most favorite out of all of the pieces in your gallery.

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Thank you, i'm currently working on a few more like this one. A lot of blood and gore!"

God that man he is a complete and utter B******d! Couldn't he just kind of tie her up in a corner somewhere or something?
Anyway, this is exellent concidering that you've done it in only two days because there is a lot of detail in this picture. I bet you were working flat out though, cos I know whenever I do a picture within one day. Once I get started I can't stop and I don't even eat! Yes so this is fantastic in my opinion and the splattered blood is a very good touch.

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Thank you Nadia (I hope you don't mind I called you Nadia). I took a quick peek at your gallery, definately expect me there soon."

p.s. I LOVE the name Roth, I always draw this elf called Prince Rothlin, and i think anyone who calls their characters Roth aree the coolest people in the world!!!

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "I've never thought myself as cool but thank you."

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "LOL! I guess he is single now. I'm sure he'll be up for another relationship once he gets back on his feet of course. Thanks!!!"

Not bad at all for something you consider rushed.
The shading definitly adds to the lineart.

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Thanks, I think I could do a better job if I did this now but its hard to recapture the sadistic mood I had when I did this."

Dude. Brutal.
I beg you. Teach me the way of the warrior.

12 Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Hehe... No need to teach you there my friend. I just took another look at you gallery and your at the same level if not better the only difference is some of our subject matter. I tend to draw a lot of medieval fantasy as yours is a definate high fantasy style."

Masterfull pose/perspective. wicked sword and superb lineart Lloyd. You bring it all to the table

:-) Lloyd Dennis Zacarias replies: "Thank you but I think your giving me way too much credit. The sword was designed by a friend of mine and as for the perspective well that came purely by accident. Hope I didn't just ruin anyones opinion of me."

Love the way you created depth in this one! the focus is on the lady and that scary dude is "blurry" in the background. I’ve never managed to do that effect without ruining the entire drawing 10

(Norwegian, sorry for the bad english)
