The Rage of the Barbarian by reiq The Rage of the Barbarian by reiq
Born in the dark, raised in the misery, no side to fight or defend...
Only his own desires of destruction drive his will.


The Barbarian was a character I paint about 3 years ago, and it was something different from the rest of my work, it was just the desire to go further and see how far I could push my skills at that moment. I had that feeling through these years that I should do a new piece featuring this character and do something different from my usual pin up girls and this is the result. it took me 2 days to finish it as I went through a lot of sketches and changes. :d hope you like it! Thanks!

OK... Before I start let me just say that is AMAZING artwork. Now onto what I am here to ask of you. I am the proud leader of a game making team. We are making a 3D PC MMO game for Windows and Macintosh computers. We have a storyline and a team of 23 people here. You can find some of our work on Http://www.vxtream.com/ . Here is a little about us. We are called VisionXtream established as of this year. We are a serious gaming team aiming to achieve a large Massively-Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game. The storyline and the name will only be given to those whom sign our contract. The contract gets sent after your Recruitment Form(found on our website) is filled out and approved. Anyhow thats a little about us and the Barbarian is going to be a class in the game instead of a race(as some people believe they were) We would appreciate if all 3D Modelers, Animators, Coders, Writers, Concept Artists, 2D Graphical Artists ect would come along and help us with our project.

Kind Regards,
Mendi Meyer
The VisionXtreamŽ Team Leader

My boyfriend and I are having a debate on how we read this picture.

I see it as being on the verge of action, your Barbarian horseman raising his arm to swing, and the man below him is pulling back to strike with his lance.

The boyfriend sees it as just post-action, because he thinks that a third character, the skull / breastplate figure in the middle, has just been cloven in half. I think this is just the Barbarian's greave and quisse, modified from a previously slewn enemy.

So I had to come and ask you, because he doesn't believe me and I'm not too proud to be proven wrong. This is an amazing piece which I used to show a very good action sequence that didn't apparently overuse (or use at all?) the smudge tool.

It looks great but i don't think a barbarian that is a rage could ride a horse but thats just D&D stuff. Again it looks really good.
