This character looks a lot different from the one in the game as in that this is a lot more realistic looking.
What do you think about the transition? Did they do it justice? Are you happy with what they did with your design?

For the most part that is always going to happen because the game tech has limitations, paintings have no limitations in that regard. I still think he turned out great.

I agree! I'd find it awesome if one of my designs made it into a game. That's really cool in itself! :)

This character's name is Agarth, not Argath (as your title says).
Quibbles aside, this picture is awesome.

When I created the illustration and posted it, Big Huge had named the character Argath. They changed it later on close to launch, much after my post.

I use an Intuos 4 Large. Intuos tablets are definitely the best. If they are out of your price range, you might want to look into the Bamboo.

see I think one of the bones in the thumb clutching the belt might be just abit lenghty... but as I wrote to daarken I may be wrong.
