Barbarian JakobA request by Khatoblepas.  This is his character Jakob, a portly behemoth, as a loinclothed barbarian leaping through the air with one of those gradient effects flying off his sword; I suppose he’s not high-level enough to produce a lens flare.

It came out very pastel because of some effect of the light; the character’s normally a much darker purple.   This picture took about seven and a half hours to complete, the last two being coloring.  I had to redraw it entirely once, as the first sketch became untenable about halfway through.
