Unlike many aspiring dark lords, Balbaroth is a brilliant tactician with a horde of loyal followers. Unfortunately he suffers from a severe speech impediment and his favourite helmet makes him almost unintelligible. In the heat of battle his plans rapidly deteriorate, leaving him gesticulating and yelling ineffectually while his subordinates cause chaos.
That's the most adorable dark lord.
I really like the colours and the design, man. Looks really cool.
This pic was a lot of fun. The design's a bit super-deformed Frazetta and I looked at one of his Death Dealer paintings to get a feel for the colour. Most of my traditional work doesn't scan very well but this one turned out better than most.
I'll bet if he started chopping off a few heads people would start listening a whole lot more carefully.
"You mufft awl bowel befaww lawd baobawoffth!!"
for a dark lord ... he looks like one snuggly bastard 8D
Very cute He reminds me some old chaos dwarves from the 80's / Realm of Chaos. Good job !
