I love seeing people's different interpretations when it comes to Covenant. I never quite imagined the ur-Viles to be as animalistic or muscular as you've drawn them, but I really dig this. I can definitely see the flaring nostrils on this guy!

Thanks! When I read the books I didn't have these image either, It was only when I went back to the descriptions in Lord Foul's Bane did I rethink my image of them for my Art Project in High School.
Really pleased to hear you like them :)
The nostrils and face is a favourite of mine also,
perhaps I will re-paint this to make them more detailed as I am now older and more experienced (or so I think!)

For a moment, I thought this was Vain. I guess he is an ur-Vile though.

could be, but i'm sure in the books he is described as having a human sort of face, cause he has eyes doesnt he

I get the feeling he should be wearing an iPod. Too many adverts? Either way, it's pretty cool for a quick thing. I'm guessing photoshop?

I dunno, seems quick for me, but I'm a well practised hand. But you seem capable enough in PS.
