White Prince by Hbruton White Prince by Hbruton
My version of Michael Moorcock's melancholy albino, Elric. If you're my age and a fantasy artist, it's almost required that you have painted this character at least once in your life. Like many, I've choosen not to portray him in the described yellow plaid (Yikes!) but choose the much cooler black and silver. Acrylic on illustration baord. Prints available.

Anyway, this picture is very well done, I like the detail. The black armor suits him much better; yellow plaid is simply too cheerful a color for Elric.
It is nice to see some artwork of Elric for a change.

Very Nice, great to see someone do an Elric piece...seems to be less and less people that know who the character is.

Don't talk like that. You make me feel old considering I do know who this characters is. I read Moorcock's Elric Saga and I own most of it. Amazing story. Very dark, an excellent turn on doomsday fantasy.

I can never picture Elric in the plaid either, even when the books describe his clothing he's at least wearing a black jerkin,if not the full on black armor!

I think this is probably the most awesome pic on here that I have seen of Elric. I do agree he looks better in black, the yellow is just a little too "happy shiny people"ish for him. I love this character. Your art is amazing please keep it up.

Wow this is amazing! You portrayed Elric very well and Stormbringer looks great! And I don't blame you for the lack of yellow plaid ;)

Would you ever think of doing more of the Eternal Champion line?

Yup, the yellow plaid is the colour of the royal house that Elric is the head of. It makes me wince to think of an albino dressed in those colours:P
