Warlords by MisterMech Warlords by MisterMech
Commissioned by :iconfuzzyveevee:

Two characters from his story Murky Number Seven. [link] Both with clear opposite modus operandi. Brimstone Blitz, decked out in his old Raider armor is a nigh unstoppable juggernaut. Barb meanwhile, is at home in the shadows, letting his knife speak for him (when not being a twisted showman)

did NOT spot barb until read a comment but he makes this pic all the better. The sheer savagery of brim is amazing but adding the shadowry barb with his trademark grin is amazing!

I looked at this for a few seconds, noting how badass Brimstone looks, then I noticed Barb and accidentally knocked over my monitor. The contrast between the thick outline of Brimstone and the smoother gradient of the shadow and Barb just makes him feel so vague, yet lifelike. It's very cool and worked out quite well in this case.

Okay, Barb literally hiding in the shadows like that? That's just damn cool. I think I need to add this story to my backlog.

I just cant get into Murky Number Seven. It's a pity party that has a reason for it but is just too pitiful.

My Gawd this pic manages to capture both of them just perfectly! I particularly like the contrast between Brim and Barb here:

Brim looks awesome in his armor, and true to the role he plays on the story itself, he apears larger than life and about "two fries short of a Happy Meal", if you catch my drift.

Barb on the other hand is pretty easy to miss at first glance, but impossible to ignore once you realize he's there, just like how he is in the story. (As an aside, am I the only one who took one look at Barb in this pic and was immediately reminded of Tahno [link] of "Legend of Korra" fame?)

All in all, I'd say this is definitely one of Mech's better works!

I don't know what's scarier, Brimstone's raw power, or the fact that Barb could be in my room with me right now and I'd have no idea.

Oh gosh, this is EPIC, It really does show both characters perfectly. Brim being pure uncontrollable rage and Barb being this sneaky asshole!

And yet still, you and Fuzzy have now made me conflicted. I dont know if I want to punch Barb or hug him. :I So THANKS for that one.
Up until now I was basicly screaming insults at my DS [where I read MN7] but now... *FLAIL*

The armour design looks realy cool! Looks like a wastelandish version of the kind of armour old Japanese warriors used to have! :) i like how you decided to put the other character in the shadow. I almost didnt notice him! :D Great job as always mech!

Does the Great Warlord so much justice! Absolutely love how enormous and bestial he appears here, that one glaring eye of his just looks absolutely insane. A really great showing of just what kind of beast lies beneath the Brim everyone thinks they know...

Of course, that all goes without even mentioning Barb there. When I saw your concept idea of him just simply lurking -in- a shadow with no 3D presence at all, I just knew it had to be that. It works so well for him and nails that creepy nature to just be -anywhere- at all. Lots of lovely double meaning about Barb's place 'behind' Brim going on there.

Also, publically, I'd just like to thank Mech for such a wonderful commission, it really is something! Great prices and a brilliant attitude to concepting and discussion, I would highly recommend anyone wanting something give him due consideration. Would commission again, so to speak! :p

I think I might be suffering Artistic overload, especially because you've posted awesome artwork, over the last three days. First of all WOW! Brimstone really does look intimidating, that armor just makes him look so different from regular old Brimstone Blitz. Not to mention the armour look deadly, you'd need to be insane to get within Brim the dragon's hoof reach. I like the eye on brim too, has a sort of crazed almost possessed look, which is pretty accurate, considering how he acts when wearing the armor. You get a real sense of power, size and strength in this image, he just looks like he could plow through a dozen brick walls and still keep going.

As for Barb, it's really accurate. He's the shadow on the wall, the monster under the bed, the creep lurking in a dark alley. I love how you only see his face, sort've a 'I am one with the shadows/I was born in darkness' kinda thing. Anyway Mech, fantastic artwork, I look forward to see the next two commissions you did before mine ^_^, they'll be just as amazing looking, I'm sure of it.
