2016: amazing year for "berserk" fans. the new manga will finally be out in just a few days after three f. years of waiting, miura confirmed that it'll be a monthly release again, there's a new anime series out (which i already truly love but also quite hate for a couple of reasons) aaand there'll be a new game out later this year... (still own the dreamcast game and the ps2 game, especially love that one). you see, it's a good time for doin' a new berserk fan art - this one is called "the black swordsman", cause that's who he is. hope you like guts.

for the WIP gif animation and the analog sketch please visit my >blog.

Wanted to let you know I colored this fantastic piece of work you did. I hope to get a chance to color in Griffith as well. Your artwork is incredible!

I never had a favorite art before.
But I am completely in love with this art.
It seems this can communicate with me. It's talking about my inner.

Thank you.

This gives you an idea what a live action Berserk adaptation could look like. But i don't count on that ever happening because you would need an enormous budget, talented actors willing to go all the way into crazy ville and a hard NC 17 rating.

thank you man! and yeah, totally on your side here. won't
happen i guess... and if, it'll be either a awkward japanese
live action with low budget cgi and bad wigs, or a white-washed
"hollywood" big budget fail-cast disaster...
we should be happy we got the 90's anime (that music... <3)
and the (imho) very good studio 4°C movies. the two complete
cgi seasons are an insult, nothing more, nothing less.

I hope they cancel the 2016/17 series in favor for a better adaption maybe with 2d animation if they can, or at least a better director. Great artwork by the way.

Kentaro Miura should look at your actualisations of Gutz & Griffiths! These would look great on a movie adaptation in a Beowulf 3d sytle. Great job man!!
