been far too long since I visited Karsa in my head, it's good to see him again.
Just a quick sketch before bed

I totally agree with Kalgoras!! Your bedtime sketch would have taken me days ...and mine would have been shit!!! I also love the other one where he meets the Edur..Nasty! I love his expression and at the risk of sounding camp..I love what you've done with his hair!!!
Brutal! And so on and so on...

It's really amazing the work that you do.. and as judicator said.. someone has finally depicted essentially the way that I see Karsa... the first thing I thought was "hey, it's Karsa.. I guess I thought he'd be taller" .. :phew:

At last! Someone has finally depicted Karsa the way I imagined him! Excellent work. This is the best rendition of the Teblor warrior I've seen yet.

Hahha, this is nuts. Of course, Karsa is the craziest character in the entire series XD.

I think you should make him look a little more bestial/primitive in the face, though. I really like your representation of him here [link]
:D

Great stuff :) How come your quick sketches are better than most masterpieces? :) I swear there should be a law against it... :P Excellent as usual! :D
