Another concept sketch of a Malazan Empire character.
The Claw is an organization of elite assassins in the Malazan Empire. These highly trained ruthless killers are feared throughout the entire territory of the Empire. As the events unfold in the first book of the series it becomes apparent that the current Empress Laseen rose through the ranks of the Claw and took over the throne through assassination of the former ruler.
This is a rather simple sketch, it took very little time to make, approx 2 hours. I used a completely different workflow than usual, and dare say that I learned something in the process.
