Charade's End ROUGH WIP 1

Egads, why do I start such megalomaniac projects on the whim of a moment, when I have about three other unfinished drawings sitting on my hard disk?? :roll:

This is only a part of a larger picture. Has bzillions of errors, needs crits big time. I'm hideously struggling with the composition right now, and have no idea how many characters I'll end up adding or if I chuck someone away entirely. Needs a foe to the foreground, at least in the form of a silhouette, otherwise it won't make any sense.

Essentially, more fanart from Stephen R. Donaldson's Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant: The One Tree [link] . I was debating between this and a rather poignant scene from the end of White Gold Wielder [link] and this one won. This is from the chapter Charade's End, where the 'gang' tries to escape from Kasreyn's Sandhold.

Characters, starting from the Giants:
In the right grins Grimmand Honninscrave, Captain of Starfare's Gem. His brother Cable Seadreamer, who's a kind of a seer, rendered mute due to the intensity of his Earth-Sight, looms behind everyone. Swordmain First of the Search (stern Valkyrie-ish lady) and Pitch (the deformed hunchback) are a married couple.

Humans and whatnot: Probably have to draw Thomas somewhere, even though he's in a catatonic state at this point. Chick in the very front's Linden Avery, the second main character. Debating whether to add any of the Haruchai. The very faint figure that's so sketchy it doesn't even resemble a proper human's the Elohim Findail (the bastard doesn't ever fight); no inkling whether I'll actually keep him in the picture.

WHY did I start this? Because I'm really, really saddened by the lack of TC fanart here at DA. The 2nd chronicles belongs to one of the best series I've ever read, albeit horribly dark, tragic, and an intense psychological rollercoaster (then again, I like also George R. R. Martin...). Cue the realization that Lord Foul, no matter how stupid a name he carries, makes villains like Sauron look like part-time lollipop thieves...


Gah, what a wall of text. Does anyone even read these? XDD
