The creature below is straight out of the Malazan Empire book series by Steven Erikson. I picked these books up by accident and have been reading them over the last year. Even though the reading is very difficult at times, because of the complexity of the story and the author’s style, it’s become one of my favorite book series ever. As far as fantasy goes, the Book of the Fallen, is the most epic story I’ve ever read both in size and complexity. I honestly hope to do more art associated with these books as some of the most memorable characters in fantasy literature come from them.
Note: Currently reading the Crippled God, the 10th and last book of the series.
This is a pencil drawing which took about 4 hours to make. One of the better drawings I’ve made recently imo.
