Hehe, fantastic! I don't know if you know anything about Dungeons and Dragons, but I have a dwarf character JUST like the fighter in your picture..!
Thanks! -- Yes, I used to play (not so much these days). That was part of the inspiration; also Frank Frazetta. =)
Yes, I can definitely see the D&D influence. I like your style! Thanks for the comment on my blog :)
This is soooo cool! Just love it!
