Dragon Age: Blackwall by olivegbg Dragon Age: Blackwall by olivegbg
The game isn't out yet and here's my first Blackwall fan-image. I've lost hope that he'll be a romance, but at least (unlike Duncan and Riordan :() I can drag him all over the place as a companion. 
As a reference I used one of the few screenshots. I'd say half the time spent on this was getting his helmet off.

I just stumbled across this. It's fantastic and, aren't you glad he turned out to be a romance option?

I was ecstatic TBT. :D But I've actually never romanced him. Liars are on my bad list, whatever the cause.

I never commented on this!  I'm looking forward to Blackwall also. He looks great here, all masculine and serious. Again, love the expression in his eyes. Can't' wait to meet him! Especially if looks like this.  :)

Gah, I love Blackwall, but also Dorian. I can seriously not decide if I should make an M or F inquisitor...eh, first. ;)

As a guy I was really hoping to get Vivienne but it wasn't meant to be :P Gratz to the girls who got Blackwall, the pic is amazing :)

Gosh, that's so Grand of you, thank you ever so much! I admit I was rooting for Blackwall but I would have loved to have Vivienne as an Li as well, she's gorgeous and I can already imagine her snarky comments when you drag her into a swamp. Which I do...frequently... I have a very poor sense of direction.

Hehe, well the Inquisitor will get a chance to test the famous Warden's endurance and for Vivienne, well she could be a companion with "benefits". On a more serious note I really like her style, and don't worry about the swamps I bet she has tons of reserve clothes and she's a mage, instant cleaning! :D

The only flaw with Blackwall is that he seems to have a smallish nose, far from Duncan's magnificence. :D

I want Blackwall as a romance too! He reminds me so much of Duncan. He must have Rivaini heritage. He looks tragic here, but strong just like Duncan and Riordan. A real Warden. Let me love you, Blackwall!!!!

Seconded. I fail to see what's wrong in wanting to romance sane, experienced men who actually seems to know what they are doing (OK, and are hot) :D
