Don't mess with peasants with pitchforks! Why can't anybody ever learn this...

Great drawing!

Beautiful artwork! This guy really means business! :P

Was this done digitally, or did you do it by hand?

Thanks Remyth and Lamanda for the kudos.

Lamanda it was drawn the old fashioned way. As you know, the orginal looks so much better than the digital version. My scanner is still on the brink so I had to take a digital pic of them, and they also lose so much clarity when I do it that way. I used pencil, then inked, and I used copic sketch markers to render it. Here is the second drawing of the night. I'm in one of those moods where if I didn't have to work tomorrow I could just draw all night! :D

By the way Lamanda, I remember your customs figs from the minifigure network a year ago when I was trolling around there, you do great work! :lol:

Another great piece!
While the first one is still my fave (It's so greatly detailed and all), this is still very excellent!
Better than I could ever freehand that's for sure.

That peasant just slaughtered some trolls and he's covered in blood- and now he's posing! And smiling! :shock:

Enjoy!

I like it lots. :wink: I hope to see more from you in the future. Great choice for the orc hair. The splattering effect on the first pictures' torso is tops.

I agree! I like this super-peasant!

And the fact that he is the classic super-peasant is even better!

Very good idea, and very good drawing too - you really have some skill with both the illustration and the coloring part of this...

Super pesants! I absoluetly love your style of drawing, but what is the pesant's name? After all, if he is so violent and stops orcs from terrorizing the countryside he must be renown throughout the land.

Many thanks!

Hob Took, I am surprised you have never heard of the legend of Victor Von Vandershodden. They say he alone was the turning point in the battle against evil. The orc hordes were decending upon the castle, devouring every village and town in their path, untill they burned down the wrong farmer's house with his minifig children in it. Upon returning to his scorched home and buring the charred remains, Victor vowed to not rest untill every Orc and Troll had paid for their sins by tasting the dull point of his wooden pitchfork. He stopped the Orc advances and tales say that he is off somewhere at this very moment chasing down the remaining bands of Orcs and Trolls, searching for vengeance to make him whole again.
