2016: amazing year for "berserk" fans. the new manga will finally be out in just a few days after three f. years of waiting, miura confirmed that it'll be a monthly release again, there's a new anime series out (which i already truly love but also quite hate for a couple of reasons) aaand there'll be a new game out later this year... (still own the dreamcast game and the ps2 game, especially love that one). you see, it's a good time for doin' a new berserk fan art - this one is called "the black swordsman", cause that's who he is. hope you like guts.

for the WIP gif animation and the analog sketch please visit my >blog.

I hope they cancel the 2016/17 series in favor for a better adaption maybe with 2d animation if they can, or at least a better director. Great artwork by the way.

Kentaro Miura should look at your actualisations of Gutz & Griffiths! These would look great on a movie adaptation in a Beowulf 3d sytle. Great job man!!

thanks for the praise, man! glad you like my interpretations
so much! :) kinda hurts that they did not manage to get any
likeness into the 2016 guts at all. :/

You're welcome! Yes, no likeness in 2016. Imo opinion, yours are perfect in likeness. Beserk animes are yet to get it correctly to the manga.

thanks! well, i really enjoyed the studio 4°c movies... they
look different, but i liked their interpretation too. the cgi stuff
in the first two movies was not so good, but they toned it
down already in the second one, and there's even less in the
tihrd and final one. damn, i really think the golden age movies
are underestimated. the eclipse and also the overall ost have
amazing imo. :)

It's definitely the best Guts fan art ever. You have some incredible skills.
(I'm curious how you would draw Griffith, it could be interesting).

Wow, what an amazing portrait! You really captured Guts' appearance but as if he was a real person. Yet you maintained the feel and characterisics of the manga version. Im terrible with words but this is incredible. Props to you!
