The Barbarian by BenMaier The Barbarian by BenMaier
Blood, guts and filthy flesh is what he needs,
as a Barbarian requires no deeds.
The battlefields of Norroth are his home,
fighting mercilessly with a jaw full of foam.

Hey!  Awesome rendition!  I'm a super-mod at an active writing forum, writingforums.org (I'm Wreybies, please feel free to PM me there for verification) and we are doing some internal ads pointing members to different areas of the forum.  We have an RPG room and this guy would make a great visual.  Would you be willing to give permission to use your art as a banner pointing to our RPG room?  Again, we're pretty active, so it would be plenty of exposure.  The banner refreshes every time a member refreshes the screen so your work would be part of a rotating series of such banners.  We're all aspiring writers there, so we would NEVER consider using someone else's work without permission.  We would never want someone to do that to us.  Anyway, if you're willing, it would mean I would do a crop of an area, probably the upper right since his face, hair and beard are really dramatic and in motion, and text would be added pointing to our RPG room.  I would include, of course, a credit to the artist in the lower right.  What do you say?

Ah, understood.  Thank you for getting back with me, Melanie.  Very kind of you.  Are any of the works I see on your page yours alone.  There are several others that would make great banners for the forum, if you are willing.  :)

I was wondering for a while now, has Norroth anything to do with Everquest? Norrath?

Thank you Eva :hug:
No, it hasn't. Norroth is a dutch browser game from an indipendent publisher. The beta will soon start, so you will be able to have a look at it in some days :)

Barbarians : they charge into battle, and hope like hell that you will only try to hit them in their arms or kneecaps. This guy is taking it to a new level by not even protecting himself against a kick in the nuts.

the best thing would be long, step-by-step presentation of drawing one of your works. You know, just screenshots of every little step, no commentary needed, I'd just like to see the way you're working. I think many people would find it helpful :)
