Some experimental art. I wanted to focus on the mood instead of the details.
I might do more of these in the future, it was quite relaxing.

this is by far the best Anomander Rake I've seen. You can almost feel Kurald Galhain emanating from him.

If it's digital, can I ask what types of brushes you used?

well, you've pictured him exactly as he is: more atmosphere and less details :) I really like it!

This looks awesome:)

I would maybe have shaped the shadows behind him to look like wings, or emphasized the darkness that bleeds from Dragnipur more, but that's just me :P

Cool, not enough Malazan art out there. I think you really did the Dragnipurake justice.

More like when he kills the demon on the roof in GotM

I like it lots lol. I was going to describe what and why I did but my brain isn't working so hot right now so I gave up. I just like this. A whole lot.

Done. Just done.
That's it.
There he is.
It's fucking Anomander Rake.
I don't believe anyone can argue with this interpretation.

This is really cool with an edge of impressionistic, giving you the feeling of dread as he marches forward.

Niiice. Has an edge to it where the setting is implied over the details. Same thing where a writer suggests and the individual fills in the details. I know not why he is about but I know what he's going to do. GG.

It's always nice to spend a couple of minutes on a drawing at a time. By the end of the day, you usually end up with quite a lot of interesting sketches.

I took a look through my favorites to see if any of them had good examples of mood-filled art, but nothing in particular stood out to me, sadly.
