Final version of The Last Dark cartoon (promo-ish), started as something light-hearted but gradually turned into possibly the most complex piece I've drawn in years.

Just finished reading the Last Book(s) and can now enjoy this piece of fantastic (& fun) artwork even more! Well done :-) I love all the different expressions you've integrated into the Giants and the care and detail you've brought to all the other characters. Impressive and lovely. Would love a poster of this <3 Cheers!!

Heh, thanks. I drew this well before the book had come out, so it has a couple of mistakes (Kastenessen...). Hope you like the book! :-D

I think the next edition of the _The Last Dark_ should use this is its cover. I am off to write SRD to see if he will give his blessing or ask the publisher. 

(How long did this take???)

Also, I want a Feroce plushie. With flame. Not sure how that will happen but I want one.

Methinks that the Ranyhyn has had a bit too much amanibhavan. Maybe it shared some with Lostson too, and all those tales of brain damage and elohim were just excuses.

Wonderful stuff! Counting down the days till The Last Dark is published and found this - yayyy! There's too little Thomas Covenant stuff on DA and this pic just makes me so happy, I love your take on the different characters, there's so much humour here - Lostson's expression cracks me up, I'd love to see your takes on Berek, Loric, Elena, Esmer etc as well.  Beautiful work and wonderful colours, thanks for sharing. <3

Haha, thanks! ^_^
Yeah, unfortunately it's REALLY rare (and I would also love seeing other people's versions of the characters). I've perused half the internet for it, and 3rd chronicles art in particular seems nonexistent. :/

I read the actual book months ago (an ARC) and this one contains some small errors/differences. It was drawn a year ago, after all.

I think I'm gonna have to come back to this pic once I've finished reading the entire series, haha! I've only completed the First Chronicles so far, but this picture looks absolutely amazing.

You're so right - I thought I was somewhat 'well read'; but the 2nd Chronicles in particular had me w dictionaries and my phone in both hands.. thankfully my list of new words kept growing as I jotted them down and some were reused *phew*.
