Gormenghast: Rottcodd by PhillyBoyWonder Gormenghast: Rottcodd by PhillyBoyWonder
This is Rottcodd, the curator of the Hall of Bright Carvings from the Gormenghast books (or more accurately, the first book).

If you haven't read the books, he's a old recluse who resides in a dusty attic/hall and dusts the carvings therein.

very characterful, especially the stooping posture... Good to see someone drawing the minor characters - it's funny, the way the books are littered with these evocatively written, obsessively-detailed characters that we only meet once.
I think my favourite of them would have to be Pentecost the gardener.

Thank you for all your comments :) You're very kind.

Yeah, there is a beautiful description of Pentecost with flowers smoldering in his arms (can't remember the exact line).
I'm not sure what form the final pieces will take so I don't know if these will be used.
