Gladto see your work getting the recognition it deserves. If his series had your pics for cover art, I believe the series would be even more well known, no disrepect to the artist that got that honor though. Just though I'd add my two-cents.
I just recently got into the Codex of Alera series and my favorite characters are Daroga and Bernard. I love it and I love how Mr. Butcher portrays the different cultures. I am up to Book 3 and was introduced to the Canim and Book 2 I look forward to seeing how their people are like. I always pictured the gargants to be like giant bison with tusks and large rhino like mole feet. xD Your portrayal is awesome! Aso Daroga has a pretty sexy back XD
