The Educated Barbarian by zazB The Educated Barbarian by zazB
This was drawn on paper and inked with a brushpen. I decided to keep the rough underneath because I like how it looks.

this is badass and my irrational hatred of swords that are impossible to get out of their sheath shall be put aside to enjoy just how awesome it is to see this. I myself have a particular love of barbarian elves and that you used my fav color for the outfit, which i love by the way.(obviously not for me but i still love it, and seeing so much of it in the rest of your work rocks-that style of blue just makes me happy) Ill just imagine she left her cloak at the door and that she has absolutly no intention of paying for that book while sitting over in my little corner.

I like how you handled the sword. Looks more brutal and intimidating than the average, run-of-the-mill fantasy sword.

I always found that the guard was a bit too squarish though =P

This looks great - I love her character design and clothing, and also her relatively calm and cool expression. And of course the lines! Brushpeeeeens. They're quite amazing. :D

Yay! I love it when you update! :D

And when you update with a character READING (I'm a book addict, what can I say) and with a lovely sword.. bliss. :)

I think you like blue as much as I do... :)

Anyway. Like the rough ground.. kinda reminds me of the texture of the beginning of drywalling... Her overall look is just plain fun. Does her headband chime in the wind perchance?

I'm all about blue and yellow =P
and I think her headband does chime in the wind... or when she is running or slaying people. She's a barbarian after all!

I really like this. :) Both the concept and the execution - there's something about the line-quality you get when inking with brushpens that really appeals to me, and you picked some really nice colours for this. I also like that kind of smug look on her face. :D "Haha, I am both smarter and stronger than you!"

I want to spend less time in front of a monitor and I found the brush pens to be a good way to do that :) They are fun to work with and I'm learning a lot :)
