Sador - Alpha (1991)


This was another early image, and the only one to show his weapon in full view. The blade was supposed to be pitch black, like polished obsidian. I originally wanted it to "drink souls" as well, but it sounded like an obvious rip off of StormBringer from the Elric novels (which it was), so I dropped the idea.

His feet were supposed to be cloven hooves, but they ended up looking like horse hooves...which still came out looking kinda cool, but not nearly as "satannic", which was what I was aiming for at the time. Like all my early drawings, I never retouched it because I though it looked too cartoony.

These images are the only ones I did without the horns.
