Patrician

Lord Havelock Vetinari is the Patrician of Ankh-Morpork, City state in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series.
--------
"...The current Patrician, head of the extremely rich and powerful Vetinari family, was thin, tall and apparently as cold-blooded as a dead penguin. Just by looking at him you could tell he was the sort of man you'd expect to keep a white cat, and caress it idly while sentencing people to death in a piranha tank; and you'd hazard for good measure that he probably collected rare thin porcelain, turning it over and over in his blue-white fingers while distant screams echoed from the depths of the dungeons. You wouldn't put it past him to use the word 'exquisite' and have thin lips. He looked the kind of person who, when they blink, you mark it off on the calendar.
Practically none of this was in fact the case... "
---------
inscription around the portal is the Ankh-Morpork motto: QUANTI CANICULA ILLE IN FENESTRA
(Latatian: How much is that small dog in the window)

ok. there was not my intention to make a copy of Paul Kidby's version of Patrician. yes, it is very, VERy similar. I find Paul's illustrations in the net and i saw it too...
what can I say... Snape from HP is almost always the same on different artists illustrations too ;)

This is awesome!
Exactly how I imagined him :3
You have some killer coloring skills!
pica-ae's avatar
awesome! :wow:
but i think that it look similar to pauls is just that we all imagine him in the same way somehow… when i saw the first drawing of him, i thought 'yes, how i thought he looks' ;)
and snape… well, just looks like alan rickman in the movies, i guess :D

Quite a wondrful piece of work you've done! It looks fantastic, and lives up to everything I thought the Patrician would look like.

Kudos!

Vetinari! O, matko, kocham tego faceta! Głównie jego teksty i lodowatość, która nawet piekło jest zdolna zamrozić! :love:
I ogółem jego charakter. :D

A Pratchetta za to, ze potrafi stworzyć takie mnóstwo tak różnych charakterów, które są dla siebie często kompletnymi przeciwieństwami... jak na przykład Vetinari i Marchewa, żeby już było w jednym mieście. :D

A Twoją pracę za to, że potrafiłeś tak dobrze oddać istotę Vetinariowości. :clap: Genialne. :drool:
Faktycznie widać wpływy Kidby'ego, też mi to przyszło na myśl, zanim przeczytałam komenty. :)
I ja też go sobie wyobrażałam jako blondyna. Z półdługimi, gęstymi włosami do ramion. I też za diabła nie wiem, czemu.
Twoja wersja lepsza od mojej. :D

Chyba najlepszy Vetinari jaki widziałem (poza tym Kidby'ego) :D

A very recognizable Patrician - though I wouldn't say it's a copy of Paul Kidby's. After all, Pratchett made it pretty clear what the man looks like.

Great portrait!
:clap:
