Dark elf + Massive sword that traps creatures in a torturous realm = I need new undies

Edit #1- Darkened his skin.
Edit #2- Made Draginpur (his sword) black instead of grey. Added runes.

As always, let me know what you think! And feel free to check out some of the other steez I've made for the series!

I think Rake always reminds me of Elric of Melnibone with dark skin. I rather like this depiction, though Dragnipur could use a bit more work perhaps? :)

If I can find the time I'd like to revisit the hilt and handle. They're definitely pretty plain at the moment ;)

And the face, please. Seems to pinched in, almost skeletal. As someone else said, a starved Mads Mikkelson. :D

Love the armour and general depiction, however I beleive he is described to have jet black skin

Is it just me or is this drawing based on the facial features of Mads Mikkelsen?

Haha nope, but now that you mention it.. I see where you're coming from

You forgot he is also a dragon, flies a giant pyramid, leads an army of magic-resistant ravens, and can swallow the world in darkness.  In heard he plays angry birds in his spare time.

It's a mountain, not a pyramid (sorry, I'm the fact checking geek police for Malazan *flashes badge*)

Haha I guess those things slipped my mind. And I thought it was Candy Crush no?

Oh I think you're right!  Wink/Razz

Is this some injoke I'm missing out on, or just you taking the piss out of him always being so serious and noble (unlike everyone else. EVERYONE else.)?

It's a funny image, you gotta admit.
