Brutolph the Butcher

Although meeting the business end of this hoofed monstrosity's sinister chained hook is a terrifying thought, it is his curved executioner's axe that victims truly fear. A tremendous force of horrifying presence and sadism, Brutolph relishes in the fear brought on by the dangling roped trophies of critters that could not escape his brutal judgement.

A primary goal of mine was to showcase a lumbering beast with a deep understanding of torture and rage through visual communication, both in it's gnarling posture and overbearing hunch as a result of a large upper body. The long partially tamed beard juxtaposes the creatures persona, order and chaos.
