Dragon Age II: I Make My Own Destiny by Berserker79 Dragon Age II: I Make My Own Destiny by Berserker79
Carver Hawke from Dragon Age II.

A companion piece to my earlier Bethany work "Embrace Your Destiny": [link]

The idea here is to show what potential destinies are open for Carver if he can stop being merely Hawke's ranting little brother (Spoiled Brat):
- a Templar who joined the order to escape his elder sibling's shadow (Out of the Shadow);
- a Grey Warden looking to avenge his fallen twin sister (Ogre Killer); or
- a brother of the Andrastian Chantry who decided to lay down his weapons (Chantry Boy).
Of course, this latter option is not from the game and just part an AU idea of mine.

Thanks to :icondorianpavus: for constructive criticism and feedback!

:lol: I'm pretty sure you're not the first to mention that! ;) No idea if that's because of the Warden armor, that beard on his face or a combination of both maybe! :)

Thank you! :) Judging from the feedback it really looks like Warden Carver is the most appreciated one!

Well, Chantry Carver was designed to be in contrast with Carver's warrior image as seen in the other three panels, so it's pretty understandable he doesn't look too intriguing there! ;)

Thanks for letting me know, I'm glad you like this concept! :)

I'm curious: do you have a favorite "fate" among the four shown here?

Woohoo!  You did the second contribution to the "fate-meme"!!!
And it's so damn good again!!! w00t! I really like the "Ogre Killer"-version of Carver! The beard is just too awesome! :giggle:
I have to get started with my meme-theme! :P
And hopefully Dorian will feel better soon... :(

Thank you for your comment and for the :+fav: Panchima! :woohoo: I really couldn't pass the chance of making one for Carver after the one for Bethany! ;)

Looking forward to seeing your meme! :D

Awesome work! :) Interesting idea of Carver as a Chantry brother.

Thank you! :)

The idea of a Chantry Brother Carver was suggested by DorianGray and I liked that very much since I thought it was a very appropriate counterpart to the Blood Mage Bethany from my previous work! :D

I have say, I like how the fourth one becomes an Bizarro comparsion of the character.

Glad to hear you think so! The idea was indeed for the Chantry Boy panel to look somewhat funny and in contrast with the more serious tone of the Warden and Templar panels. :)

And thank you for :+fav:ing this work! :happybounce:

Amazing work. I especially like the pose he's in as the Templar.

Berserker79 Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2014
I'm happy you like this work! :) The Templar panel is one of my two favorites here: the pose was intended to make Carver look proud of being a Templar and at the same time pleased of being no longer hidden in the shadow of his elder sibling.

Nice to hear you like this and thank you so much for the :+fav:! :w00t:

And no worries about the Chantry Boy panel making you laugh... :roll: Actually, that's good to hear because my intention was for that specific destiny to look funny! ;)

Perhaps is the Wardens charm or the beard.. maybe both! Definitely Carver the Ogre killer (a little too young for the moment but great potential! ;))
The Chantry boy.. oh my! Carver De Launcet noooooooooooooo :rofl: (I know I know it's not exactly the same but still..)
Reply
:iconberserker79:
Berserker79 Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2014
Maybe it's both, but you're not the first to notice that beard seems to make Carver more charming! :D

And you're right that's the same hairstyle used by Emile De Launcet! I thought it would be fitting for the Chantry Boy fate and I'll admit the idea was to give this appearance a somewhat funny look. :)

:iconwaratahts:
waratahts Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2014
yes, definitely he should grow a beard! Great part of the charm lies on the "badass" expression you gave him (something reminds me his bigger brother):)
and that monk tonsure is perfect for the chantry boy (I just need to separate the image of Emile from him :lol:)!

Looks fantastic, the Chantry Boy hair cut is a little disturbing though hehe, love the Warden, he looks sexy with a beard~ Rose blush

:lol: Lol, I didn't expect the Chantry Boy hairstyle to be somewhat disturbing... :) I hope the good looks of Warden Carver are enough to forgive the disturbing hairstyle! :D

Carver makes a bad-ass Warden! Templar second I think.

Thanks olive! I also like best the Warden and Templar panels here! :)

BTW, all in all I always thought the Warden fate to be a more fitting choice for Carver than Bethany.
