Minotaur by PabloFernandezArtwrk Minotaur by PabloFernandezArtwrk
Just wanted to draw a minotaur. It was one of my favourite mythological creatures and i realized ive never drawn one before so there you go. Still experimenting with brushes btw. Wanted to give the background and most of the drawing a more pictorical look with a loose brush. Hope you like it.

And to think, the Minotaur was just on his way to the grocery store when this happened. XD

Holy shit, that's an amazing composition. Just so dramatic and fearsome.

Wow! Amazing work! Love it!

I was wondering if you could let me us this image for an Android game called "Kingdoms of Myth", it's turn based strategy game based on a fantasy World. You can find a little bit more info in this rough website made by my colleges… (Sorry for the bad English). Of course you will have full credits of your work and link to your webpage if you want :)

Lot of thanks for your time ;)

P.D: By the way we just created now a Facebook with more recent pictures:…

The size difference was the most appealing aspect of the picture, well done.

Snow looks like it would be a pain to paint. I don't think I could ever do something like this. Thus, I shall look at awesome people's representations of awesome things.

The setting appears formidable and foreboding!!  The knights are sizing up their enemy.  They are assessing how to best defeat this beast that has already brought death to one of their comrades.  They'll take him down; I'm sure of it!

You put your talents to good work!!  Your efforts were well-applied.  The blending of colors provide an ambiance of mythical proportions in a battle that will see one side or the other fall!  This is a genuinely manly piece of art!  This is a side of life that those whom know not of it cannot even fathom.  How noble to go out and stand for that which is noble and good in this world against the fierce forces that would expunge them without remorse!!!  Thus creating a dimmer and darker realm for all involved.

Genuinely well-done!! Nod  :o (Eek)  Nod

Hi there! My name is Rob and I have been creating a card game (still very much in progress!). I am planning on using this goblin image for one of my card images (under a creative commons license) and credited you on the card at the bottom left. I uploaded what the card image would most likely look like and put it here:…. If you have any objection to this use of your image, please let me know as I'll definitely change the picture to something else. Please email me at, I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you!! --Rob

This is a fantastic picture, my good sir. So much so that I made a little drabble based on it. If you have a high tolerance for pretensions of quality, you might be interested.

This is one of my personal favorite minotaur pictures, and I had to favorite the thing not only for the design of the creature itself, but the mood. The creature is both menacing and tragically innocent in his challenge to the knights.

Well, guys, you're there... he's there... he's killed one of your company... You just gonna bail from what could be one the best fantasy fights I'm seeing building up? Meh, guess I won't find out. Continue with your staring contest. =P (Razz)Either way, I love this picture. You've honored the Minotaur myth very well with this blurry, grainy, tense scene featuring two opposing powers in the mountains, my friend. Very well done here. Clap

Love the feel of terror in the scene, with that realistic, oblivious creature menacing each one of them...

I've always had a thing with the Minotaur too.. thinkin of doing a series one of these days.. THIS one is niiiiice.. I'm loving the treatment, and the way you can tell the soldiers don't really wanna tangle with this mofo but they're probably working up the nerve..

Only an encounter with a minotaur can seperate those who will grow old and those that are bold.

The icey environment also adds a great level of bleakness to the situation in the way that the soldiers may only pass when the minotaur has been slain.

Nice job! It really is imposing on the mind.
Berserkhan Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012
I'm back again !!!!

It's been such a long time, hope you've kept fine since then ;)

THIS is what a Minotaur should look ; a peaceful Guardian ready to crush skulls when War is coming at him.

The character is even more sympathetic to me, because you didn't draw him in the classical way (in a maze, underground, with too few lights, ...) ; Really "attractive" Minotaur, in the light & on a frozen ground ...

Finally, the pose of the human soldiers is excellent, because even without seeing their face you can tell they DO feel scary :p
Thanks to the excellent balance with Minotaur (left), corpse (middle-down), and humans (right).

One again thank you for sharing (^__^).
I'm going back to work, but i'll try to find some time this evening & the days coming to comment your latest deviations.

See you very soon @++ !! :)
