I've been getting these guys together for sooooooo long it's insane because of the amount of times I've drawn, re-drawn, found out something else and drawn them again but I finally managed to get a pretty good number of them down on paper, I got them as accurate as I could but at the end of the day they're still my interpretations(and whats possible to do in pencil) so without further introduction........THE INTRODUCTIONS!!

in my minds eye, tattersail is a bit fatter, paran looks younger, just thinking sorry looks good and so does quick ben and kalam, don't know about tool, i like what you have done with oponn although they both look like girls and i thought they were brother and sister? kruppe looks totally different to how i view him.. what are your comments?

These are all great! You've done a really good job of distinguishing the characters from one another and reflecting their personalities. Kruppe looks very similar to how I pictured him (sorry to disagree Tattersail :p). Would it be possible to put the names under each character? Because it is pretty difficult to look at the list and then back, then back again and so on. The only character I can see off-hand that I think could be changed is Laseen, because she is stated as having very short hair. The length of her jaw also makes her a little masculine, and her skin is quite dark (she is Napan, after all). Oh, and just spotted Kallor - he looks a little frail and not quite as menacing/cynical as he is in the books. Anyway, nit-picking over; kudos to you!

I epecially think you got Crokus, Tays, Coll and Challice just perfect, though they are all great and it's hard to pick just a few. Mammot looks absolutely hilarious, but I always found him a bit goofy so it fits tremendously to me. I can easily imagine that face talking sarcastically to a flying monkey. Great work Onrack!

Fantastic pictures! You can pick them out without the list! Really good stuff, even Picker looks accurate to me, even though she's hardly described physically in the books as far as I remember. I think Kalam should be a bit more bulky, but hey.

I'd switch Lorn and Laseen, and I agree on a few of the comments already made [mostly on Kalam, Kallor and Paran], but mostly I could pick them out without the list, so great job :D

Thank you for the links! I have used the search (and yes, including the Advanced option) and it is not so intuitive to me. Anyway... thanks! I think Karsa can teach Mel Gibson a thing or two about anger management.

They're all great, even if I imagine a few of them differently (Shadowthrone for example.), but the one that really cracked me up is Hedge, spot on and hilarious! Also loving Fiddler, he looks quite friendly the way you drew him. :)

Agreed. You should pick up the comic project where the Dabel Brothers left off. :thumbsup:

cheers for the feedback, to give my own reasoning behind some of them I looked at Tattersail a different way for this, I did intent to go a lot bulkier first off but then I noticed she is described as round faced and plump, and while there are pointers to her being fat they are usually descriptions of herself by herself, which most thin girls I know do let alone anyone 'plump'. That said she does have a plump body, you just cant see it is all! as for Paran it was only after I drew him like he is here that I found out he must be in his early twenties (or something like that) in the book, but I think I've been influenced by what I think he looks like throughout the series, so just imagine a younger version of this guy. Oponn looks like girls because hes/shes twins.....which totally makes sense hmmmm. its all interpretation and everybody's got a different one

thanks Max much obliged,
I would have put the names or numbers with the characters except I kinda look at this as a picture itself and didn't want to graffiti all over it but a couple of people have asked so I'll get on made up
LASEEEEEEN what is up with that chick man, I read this comment yesterday and was like 'whats this? short hair?' as one of the characters that I had such a solid image of in my head I didn't bother to do any research and when I did I found out she had mousy brown short hair and was a bloody smurf!!!! imagine my surprise. good call dude.
Kallor on the other hand I did do a bit of research for and found this....

'his longevity probably came from alchemies, and was anything but perfect, for his face and body were as ravaged as those of a mortal man who was nearing a century of life.'

though I think I would get his menacing appearance through a lot better if he wasn't a floating head.

Agreed. You should pick up the comic project where the Dabel Brothers left off. :thumbsup:


man an erikson comic would be the hardest thing in the world to do I think I would end up a mental wreck trying visualize whats going on ,I think it would go something along the lines of... what the hell does a warren look like anyway? how the bloody hell can she be 'slightly' blue, whats all this about a floating rock? how in buggery am I supposed to make that fat chick attractive enough for that twenty year old to do.......waaaaiiiit a sec, THAT'S THE GUY THAT JUST GOT NAILED IN AN ALLEY.
I can see why the Dabel brothers left off

Awesome as always - you just get better and better Onrack. Now try the shi'gall assassin? ;)

interesting though - that guy you said has the body of kalam and the head of quick ben - I think is actually a ringer for quick - the body isn't big enough for kalam who is bearish and much bigger, or rather wider.
