Oh man, this is so boss! 

Though I always pictured gargants as Giant Ground Sloths/Megatherium, the beauty of this piece well overcomes that personal hurdle.

Gladto see your work getting the recognition it deserves. If his series had your pics for cover art, I believe the series would be even more well known, no disrepect to the artist that got that honor though. Just though I'd add my two-cents.^^;

I like the maturity of this image.

hopefully that comes out right, and doesn't sound pretentious but this is just really epic and great.

That is awesome! Just finished reading the first book, and was looking for fan art. This tops anything I've seen so far.

So awesome! You inspired the crap out of me with this one. I did a study which got out of hand a bit and posted it. If you want me to take it down please just say so, no problem. It's here; [link]

I've got a lot to learn ;)

I just recently got into the Codex of Alera series and my favorite characters are Daroga and Bernard. I love it and I love how Mr. Butcher portrays the different cultures. I am up to Book 3 and was introduced to the Canim and Book 2 I look forward to seeing how their people are like. I always pictured the gargants to be like giant bison with tusks and large rhino like mole feet. xD Your portrayal is awesome! Aso Daroga has a pretty sexy back XD

Excellent! Just how I imagined them to look. I also like Garados in the distance, very well done.

I always kind of pictured gargants as gigantic cows (walker as white with coffee colored spots)... but this way is muuuuuch better.
