There is no so many portraits of Akkarin out there but this is without a doubt the best i've seen so far. The Black Magician Trilogy was really great I don't understand why there is no more people making fan arts about these books.

Wow! Great! This is how i imagine him! Especially since i found a fanfiction with a better ending! So the Story goes on for me, because this ending is as long as the original trilogy ! I'm looking forward for many more hours with Akkarin and Sonea and your great portrait!!! Thank you so much!!

What? THAT SKETCH IS FANTASTIC. HOW CAN YOU EVEN SAY THAT HE'S TOO OLD> I LOVE IT!
And this pic is just a masterpiece. I read the books only for Akkarin, and when the author made him good and in love I just wanted to cry and never finished the third book. He's my fave character ever, so intimidating, cold and reasonable. And how he scares our beautiful little girl...
And this fanart does give him justice just for once.

This is, honestly, the best picture of Akkarin that will ever exist.
One might say he looks a tad too young and "soft", but every doubt ceases when I look at those eyes. This. Is. Akkarin. The shadows around his eyes. The darkness in his gaze. I read the books for the first time back in 2008 and am rereading them now out of a flash ob nostalgia. For the past week, I've been staring at this picture countless times. For minutes, sometimes, and in the end, I have tears in my eyes. Looking closely, one can even see hints of da dark sadness in his eyes.
I can't even begin to describe the emotions this wakes in me.
This is a masterpiece and I will never, ever need to look at another picture of him.
Thank you.

As a fan of the Canavan books, I congratulate you on representing such a complex character so well. He is very much as I pictured him in my head as I read the books. Well done.

So, um, any chance of selling prints of this? Asking for a friend. Who is me.

I really adore this picture of Akkarin *__*
Over the years I've been looking now and then for a decent pic but never found one that came close to my idea of Akkarin, but yours is just perfect.
The BMT are among my favourite books and you'd make me very very happy if one day you did another pic like that o.o If you don't I'll seriously have to consider paying you for it...

Хи, я практически такого же нарисовала в свое время, как прочитала. Надо же. В смысле, по строению лица, а не по технике и качеству картинки ).

Brilliant.  Even down to the details of the "Modern Hairstyle" adopted by Lorlen & Akkarin where the Hairs "naped" at the neck.  Now i know when I'll be delving into Kyralia I'll be picturing Akkarin as this
