Some Dwarf Fortress fan art I did, based on the story "The Hamlet of Tyranny": [link]

Daneken, the captain of the guard, makes his final stand against the fire demon Ashmalice. He wields the sword called Endless Death of Tears and prepares to plunge it into the demon's heart, avenging his fallen comrades.

EDIT: Made some small tweaks to the piece (mostly to the demon's legs, which were uneven).

Don't want to sound mean, but the pieces of blood/flesh on the demons right knee look like they're 'floating'. Other than that, it's wonderful and I am very envious :)

the instant i saw this, even before i clicked i knew. Just somehow i knew it was DF related. maybe it was the missing arm, and the dwarf's face of, perhaps, expected determination.

Oh my god, I love this. The tale of the Hamlet of Tyranny is one of the main reasons why I downloaded Dwarf Fortress.

Doesn't really give the sense that they could fall into a chasm, though. Considering how the fight ended, you know, I always pictured the bridge they were on as being longer and the chasm bigger. But that minor quibble aside, this piece is EPIC. Truly, this gives Daneken and the dwarves of the Hamlet of Tyranny the respect they deserve.
