Hey man! Im just getting into digital art and loved this soo much after reading The Blade Itself, I used it as a reference when doing a painting of Glokta and Frost - I hope you don't mind? Let me know if you want me to credit you somehow - Im not exactly sure what im doing on this site - only been here a month or so! Thanks! :)

Damn, he's hell of a lot creepier than what I imagined. Great job with the details! I love the bloody paper especially. Super!

Thankyou LadyMechanikx. I also enjoyed these books and the way the gritty characters jumped from the page.

This is the most accurate drawing of Glokta I've seen. Almost exactly as I pictured him.

Thanks Sideways. Great character to do, although the alternate missing teeth were interesting to achieve.

This is wicked!

I find the DA representations of him very interesting, both in their variety and the difficulties I have forming a picture of him in my mind, which is pretty strange for me.

This looks realistic, though for some reason I pictured him with hair. Sometimes he seems like some emaciated walking scar... but he walks up mountains of steps, and look what he does for a living?!

Glokta is my favourite character from the trilogy and this portrayal of him is simply stunning.

Well done :)

Thanks all. Yes I wanted to get across his torture but still try to convey that in his past he was fit and not disfigured, not sure if I succeeded but it was fun trying.
