This is absolutely amazing. I'm reading them now (the US cover is shit), and she's one of my favorite characters of all time. You did a fantastic job of rendering the character, and adding her pipe in is a lovely touch.

Amazing attention to details! Your picture captures her in every way-
the husk- her addiction.
the ring- the last thing her brother gave her and her reason for revenge
the hood- what she hides herself behind
the pinky and the glove- wounds that will never heal
the gold and flags- what made her who she was.
THis is truely amazing. i love the art you do for The Abercrombie books. You bring the characters to life on a whole new dimension.

Brilliant. I love how you kept the pinky finger straight! I am almost halfway through this book. I love it! So far though, my favorite character of Abercrombie's has to be The Bloody Nine.

Thanks for the feedback ~Jallen02, wait untill you read the rest of his books, your in for a treat! As to your note, I have done a very small quick sketch of the "Nine" here [link] and if I ever get the time I would love to do my own interpretation of Logen.

I LOVE the illustration of Logen. Just as how I imagined him, though with a bit shorter hair than I pictured!
