That is a gorgeous subtle use of color with wonderful composition and contrast.  The strong poignant energy of the piece is delightful.  Thank you for paining it.

Awesome! Just finished the first book, Elric of Melniboné, and it was lots of fun (though philosophically several points poked at me)! Excellent rendition of the Emperor of Melniboné!

I'm a really old guy...I mean really old. I was in my teens when D&D first arrived on the scene and everyone at that time went absolutely nuts over that game.

This has been and will always be the greatest of all the characters in the D&D world to me. The books are amazing to say the least. You have rendered what I have always imaged Elric and Stormbringer would look like.

THANK YOU for sharing this incredible image with us...I for one am truly grateful...where were you in the 80's hahahaha.

You rock IsraLlona....Clap Clap Clap

Thank you very much. Your words have reached me, really. Sometimes I have doubts about the path I'm following, I was directed in other direction, but people like you make me feel that I've chosen the right way.

And about where I was in the 80's, I have to say that I was probably in the same place as you, I'm older than you think....

I like this one very much, and seems to be from a period of wandering in the southern regions. You have captured his brooding and self loathing well.

I love it. Fantastic depiction of Elric.

I like your version of Elric. He has neither the overly frail, feminine look some people give him nor the berserking lunatic feel that others do. He just looks tired and unhappy, which is a lot closer to how Moorcock portrayed him.
lordcleric Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Absolutely agree with you...have all the books and starting reading them way back in the 80's during the height of the D&D craze...the only times he really ever lapsed into madness were due to Stormbringer's insatiable appetite for souls.....hard to be happy when the very thing that keeps you alive is also the thing the took away the only one you ever loved...

Such a wonderful series of books that's way of due to be made into a great movie...

Interesting interpretation of Elric. I like it. He has the tormented look in his face that I would expect.

I've read the Elric series, magnificent works, and this is an awesome rendition of a classic character, you are to be congratulated.

Casually listening to Domine (an italian heavy metal band whose many songs are about Elric himself) and stumbled on your masterpiece... Perfect combination!

Michael Moorcock, was among the earliest authors I read when at the wee age of 10 or so I fell in love with Sci-Fi, Barbarians and other worldly creatures...Thanks for the memory..

Beautiful painting of Elric and Stormbringer, just I think the sword is a bit minimalist and can be stranger or more jewels ...
But it's just a suggestion of my personal vision of demonic rune sword.
Anyway good work!

Very impressive!
dubatuluk Featured By Owner May 17, 2012
Magnificently rendered! I am quite impressed, to say the least. I like the original stock photo well enough, but your taking that and putting it into a context quite obviously not the same as the stock has made this piece quite original.

And, as I've said only once before on this site, it's nice to see Elric not looking like an albino Conan the Barbarian. :D

Well done!

looks like Sorin Markov
Aasharu Featured By Owner May 16, 2012
Other way around, actually; Sorin, as well as Arthas of Warcraft fame, are based off of Elric, although Arthas has more in common with Elric, back story and motivation wise.

The best pic of Elric on this site. Period. Great job.

Really good representation of how I think Elric would look like. Too many others show him all muscle bound and Stormbringer being this HUGE man sized sword but I think your version is more true to life.

Love the composition ... the armor looks fantastic ... his face is very noble and the catches the wind perfectly!
