8000 pages into the series, about time I got around drawing something...:roll:

A couple of (T'lan) Imass, Neandethal-type creatures some of whom are undead warriors
Samar Dev (seriously my favorite female character of the lot), an inventor and a witch, Karsa's companion
Sad Mappo Trell who is sad
Karsa Orlong, a 8-9ft tall Toblakai barbarian (NO YOU WILL NEVER GET RID OF THESE IN MY GALLERY :noes:); he's about 90-100 years old, but only in his mid-to-late teens for his species (serious Stephen R Donaldson influence here...), also has something like two hearts and two sets of lungs... One of the most complex anti-heroes of the series, goes through some great character development.

Wow super detailled, especially the segmented armor.

I just love how you got Samar Dev and Karsa, I imagined them just like that too ! The only one I can't really say I like is Mappo, because I always imagined him as a rather "skinny" ( as much as a Trell can be skinny, that is ) guy, although the facial expression is just great, it makes me think of the many times he "mourns" for Icarium.

Interestingly, OP's depiction of mappo matches almost exactly with my mental image of him.

Thanks. :D Yeah that would be one of those grieving moments for Mappo (I'm reading Toll the Hounds atm). Don't have any quotes at hand, but I got the impression that he's almost as wide as Karsa, albeit shorter. But, I guess it depends on the reader.
