“Brotherhood of the Wolf” is a horror / action film that came out back in 2001. Directed by Christophe Gans and based off the book by David Farland, it is loosely based off real-life series of killings in France back in the 18th century.
The story centers around the infamous legend of the “Beast of Gévaudan,” a powerful, intelligent wolf that is hunted by French Knight Grégoire de Fronsac and his Iroquois counterpart, Mani. “In a rural province of France, a mysterious creature is laying waste to the countryside, savagely killing scores of women and children. Unseen, possessed of enormous strength and a human intelligence, the beast has eluded capture for years. King Louis sends in a renowned scientist and his Iroquois blood brother, an unconventional team whose combined methods and capabilities may bring the beast down. But the true nature of the beast is not what anyone could have anticipated.” Packed with martial arts and awesome swashbuckling fight scenes, “Brotherhood of the Wolf” is still well worth the watch.
The Dark Inker has just finished a private commission for the film and we LOVE it. Here is a look at some initial concept images along with some words from The Dark Inker and his final version of the print.
