And now...Zarak!

Those of you of a certain age may remember the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons toyline line and a certain half-orc assassin by the name of Zarak. I found a nice image of Zarak from 1983's Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Characters coloring book that had a bit of a Jack Kirby-esque vibe about it. I believe the artist is actually Jim Mooney.

I thought it would be cool to color and give him a logo:

I might do a few more of the characters in a similar style, if I get the time.

Zarak almost seems like a title, with that suit as a "uniform" of the Zarak group of assassins.

Loved Zarak as a kid (though I always pronounced it with the stress on the first syllable). Made me want to run a half-orc assassin.

@seaofstarsrpg - That's a good thought!
@JB - That's how I pronounce it, too: ZAR-ak.

I thought the whole book was illustrated by the legendary Greg Irons. In any case, great illo and great coloring. :)

Horn did the AD&D Coloring Book from 1979. This is from AD&D Characters Coloring Book from 1983.
