Like Zombie, when I opened Tomp's thread I thought it would be something different. So, because I like to make things I like, here's a new sketch thread.

I made this in about 10 minutes on MS Paint. I could do more (and better) sketches with the iPad, which I may attempt tonight.

See if you can guess what it is. ;)

(BTW, I was partially inspired by the art thread at Malazanempire.com, which is populated by far better artists than me.)

Blame it on my poor language and inability to make myself clesr.

hehe...no worries. You were clear, but "sketch" has different meanings especially if one of the meanings was already on one's mind.

Not sure if he posts here anymore, but Tigraine's homage to Graendal.

Looks like he also did one of Tuon (http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs24/i/2007/313/9/9/Tuon_Aetham_Kore_Paendrag_by_StarOfAstaroth.jpg).

And all stippling - I remember him posting about it. Took him like a billion hours of work.

nice. I remember seeing those before but had forgotten.

I always pictured Graendal in my head as a bit...chubbier...I guess. Curvier = a bit of pleasing plump

Maybe Tigraine just doesn't find curves to be sexy.

There's always room for interpratation, but...


CHAPTER: Graendal
The most flashy and decadent of all the Forsaken was the woman Graendal. Though not as beautiful as Lanfear, she was quite stunning in her own way. Blond and somewhat fleshy when compared with her dark-haired rival, she sheathed her voluptuous body in clinging gowns that left little to the imagination, styling her red-gold hair in elaborate bejeweled ringlets, and surrounding herself with gorgeous half-naked servants who doted on her every whim. This would seem to indicate Graendal was a little more curvy than not, although Tigraine's pic is basically a bust, so it's tough to say for sure.

Let's call it a little Darryl K influence?
Still a pretty amazing pic. I'm guessing Tigraine's a graphic designer of some sort, then?

Maybe Lanfear looks like Twiggy:

Do you still think Tigraine's picture has to be wrong? :p
