Hey man.  Just joined specifically to say amazing work!  Scanning your work since last night and have to say its the best representation of the characters in the book as I myself picture them.  I am no artist and though I draw some amazing work in my mind, you've actually put it to paper and I thank you.

Thank YOU flashcamel, I'm really glad you like the malazan stuff, it's been a while since I was able to get any erickson stuff done but there's always a nagging want to draw one of a host of awesome characters, so I'm not done with the Malazan universe yet.

<3 I am currently on Deadhouse Gates, and this is pretty much how I imagined Kalam, though in my mind's eye, his skin is a bit darker <3

really cool sketch, although it's a bit difficult to see what's going on below the swords...

what kind of swords are those? I think Kalam uses longknives, but not sure...


keep up the awesome work:)

they're kinda machette/kitana's there supposed to look like they're coming out of the picture rather than just big, but it was a quick sketch and I didn't pay much attention to depth (much to my shame s an illustrator...sob) and yeah he used knives all right, I picture them being a little bit bigger than a pretty meaty kitchen knife, I could be wrong though, aaaaanyway thanks for checkin' it out I'll keep em' comin'

Awesome pic of an awesome character; nicely done. Only crit I would add would be to agree with Morgalahan: Kalam, like Quick Ben, is black by virtue of coming from Seven Cities.

In honesty, I would love to see what you can do with a character like Anomander Rake or a K'Chain Chemalle.

Wicked! Aside from that fact that his skin should maybe be a little darker, this rocks! He's an awesone character.
