                ‘And have you that singular will?’

That is one epic sword. Everything in this picture is epic. Epicness overload!

There's a great background story about that sword. When your time come for "Malazan Book of the Fallen", I'm sure you'll enjoy in it. :)
ElvinGearMaster's avatar
Ooh, I shall keep an eye out for the book. I'm really intrigued about that sword.
dejan-delic's avatar
You won't regret, trust me. And, there's a lot of other swords in Malazan saga that will sure get your attention. ;)

Tnx a lot, mate! :) It's a great honor to hear that from such a great Malazan artist as you are.

Im actually really fond of your work Dejan! Its very unique. Im a big fan of the unique look. You catch the persona really really well while maintaining your own unique approach. I know how difficult that is and I respect that. Here you nail everything about Andarist. I really look forward to seeing more of this😁

Well, that's just made my day! Many tnx, really glad you think so! :) :beer: :ahoy:
And, sure, you can expect more Malazan art from me soon. Saga is just unbelievable inspiring. :)

Yay, a new Malazan one!!!! Thanks, Dejan :)

It will be inserted on Andarist's page asap! If you fancy doing another image for the advent calendar... I'd love to see another fantastic action scene like this one :)

dejan-delic's avatar
Not at all, Egwene. ;)

Sure, I always have a lot images and action scenes on my mind when it's about Malazan...only time could ba a problem, cause I'm bit busy at the moment. But, if I don't catch time for advent calendar, I'm surely submit something here on deviant. :)

And, tnx a lot for posting Andarist on wiki page. It looks great along with the description. :)

Glad you like it. Have inserted it on the page for Crokus and Apsalar as well. Once the relevant House of Chains chapter is ready it will go there as well :) Your gallery on the Wiki looks pretty impressive!…

Very cool and powerful scene. Does it seem to you your action works are getting a little more stylized? I like it a lot. I also like Apsalar's "dead eyes" look, even though Cotillion in gone. Keep up the great work, man!
dejan-delic's avatar
Tnx a lot, man! :) :ahoy:
Yes, action works and scenes are going through little evolution process...I'm trying to be free, as much is possible in my expression. Glad you like it. ;)

Fantastic Style, but the sword is off. *Free Icon/Emote* Surprised Pusheen

Tnx! :) The sword is very much ON, completely done on book description. If you've read the book, you would know. ;)
