Sword in the Storm



I am a ridiculously huge fan of the author David Gemmel, And my all time favorite book is Sword in the Storm. Having finished reading it for the umteenth time over the weekend, I decided the character of Connovar was to fantastic to not have a crack at!

For those of you that haven't had the pleasure of reading the book, Connovar is a Rigante clansman (Just 7th century scotland!) Who rises through the ranks to defend his home and culture from the invading armies of stone (rome)

I wanted to capture not only Connovars physical attributes, But I look on his face and the land behind to portray his nobility of spirit coupled with his barely controlled savagery, and connection to the land.

this was more of a drawing/painting practice then anything, but am pleased with the result, so any comments/advice is more then welcome-especially from Gemmel fans!!
