Barbarian

One of the characters for my MFA thesis project. As a huge fan of The Diablo games, I wanted to create a couple dark fantasy characters inspired by the series. My goal was to create a physical strength based character with more natural, leather and cloth armor and small metal accents.

If I were to revisit the character I would like to further work on his weapon. His sword feels a little rushed and I feel he’d even be better off with a more barbarian-esque weapon like a battle axe. I’d also like to push his proportions in some areas to help accentuate his large stature as well as redesigning his tattoo. It ended up feeling a little too hard edged and geometric for the setting.
