Vault of the Warrior by DanSyron Vault of the Warrior by DanSyron
Holy Hell it's about time I did some Borderlands Fanart. Anyway, MAJOR SPOILER! This is the warrior from the end of borderlands 2, which Gearbox did a freaking kickass job at designing. I decided to take a stab at it using a digital paintjob. No lineart, no anything, just painting like mad. Started this last night at midnight and went to finish it in a LS today.

I love this game. It's probably my favorite at the moment and I cannot put it down. Zer0 is the most comical of the game because CMON, a ninja that speaks in haiku and has emotes over his head depending on his mood (in this case FML) :D.

This was so much fun to do and I hit a level of quality I did not think I could do before this. Not only that, I finished this pretty much in one day. WOOO.

Thanks Gearbox for making an awesome game :D.

This is just so beautiful, dude. I love how small Zer0 looks in comparison to the Warrior, although I'm not sure of the perspective here... Seems a bit wonky, but that's just me.

Finally got to the final boss about 20 minutes ago... f*ck my life. It if it wasn't the stomping sending me into the lava, it was the fire breath absolutely demolishing my shields, if it wasn't the fire breath than it was the sudden lack of Crystalisks, if it wasn't the lack of Crystalisks it was the fact that I couldn't get to the arena because The Warrior kept on killing me as I tried to go across the bridge back to the arena.

Ha ha. My 1st time i stood one one of the islands to the side and unloaded all my ammo as he ignored me and attacked the center of the arena.

TnT Thing is on my second attempt (basically after dying 5 times I went to bed and started the next day) it seemed a though he decided to go easy on me after seeing my frustration. His fire breath didn't obliterate my shield anymore, even if I stood right inside it. He didn't stomp a lot and usually when he did it didn't send me to the lava. The one time he did throw me into the lava it was just barely into it and I could jump out with a single jump. So I ended up coming to the conclusion that he decided to go easy on me. I'm thankful but at the same time angry.

I don't understand this and I won't stare at it too long so I do (it may take me a loong time to get there...), but damn that's some amazingly detailed work! I love all this variety you've been doing, and it's always great to see fanart of games, especially favourites, wish I had the skill to do some of mine!
Keep it up Danny, and I hope Gearbox really digs this. If they don't there's something wrong with them!

Definitely the coolest looking enemy in the game in my opinion. Shame there doesn't appear to be much art of him floating around, though I guess he's pretty complex to draw.

Never played borderlands but this monster guy is really neat! Is he supposed to be rocky like? He's aweosme looking! I love the colours you've used and how the highlights work really well ;u; and the little zero? guy looks amazing! It's got so much detail! I'd love to see it up close. nice work (:

I think I will have to get this game now cause of this XD

But in all seriousness mate, you've outdone yourself again. I had to look up the final boss to gain a better perspective of this. You've done an excellent job of capturing the exact image of both The Warrior and Zero, especially The Warrior. You really depicted almost every crack and marking on it's body which gives him that earthy feel of skin. Having the energy charging up for attack was a nice touch up too and with the purple static coming off his body. Looking at the light bright orb, very nice with how you added in the brightness effects coming off it. That extra glare on it really shows off how strong the energy is IMO. I really love the moon in the background. Really nice way of showing the scarred surface.
Now looking at some improvements for the pic, I think you could have done more with the scenery such as having some lava dripping off his body or from his mouth since it seems the final boss battle took place at a volcano. For The Warrior, looking at the video, it looks like he has some claws on his mouth that spread out when he roars so I think that would have been a good add on to the body. For Zero, I think a better body expression could have been used. It seems that he's not phased at all by the giant monster in front of him more like "Bring it on!". Maybe having him dropping his sword would've given that indication that he got a little phased by the creature in front of him.
All in all, well done dude. I'd really love to see more game related artwork from you in the future. Keep on trucking mate.

Hot diggity damn, this is bloody awesome, dood :O The lighting n' lava coursing through the boss beast, Zer0 standin' 'round with his sword and rocky on his back, the big Hyperion base on the moon...every detail's great and it's a brilliant job overall; fantastic work dood, well done :thumbsup::D

Impressive work :D (even though the Warrior is the easiest boss of the whole game, his design itself make him awesome. still pretty weak next to the Invicible cast)

I agree with the easy part. I was very dissapointed at how little a challenge was. Sure when you first play it, you don't know his pattern and it's hard to avoid, but after a few times fighting him you learn where to head to, what shoot etc.
