Battle with the Varag
Digital, 11x14”, 2017.
The Story of the Art
Delving deeper into the swamp, more and more things had begun to look rotten. Elistair said it was unnatural, and all got their weapons ready. As if on cue, the Varag emerged from the swamp, wielding a whole tree stump as a club.
Varags are twisted ogres who can ravage the nature around them to draw magical power, leaving behind a twisted and decaying world. They are just as powerful and savage in hand to hand combat as well.
