I've always had such a super hard crush on Bernard and among all the (studly) men of Alera, he stands out because of his character and general hunkiness. Amara is a lucky bi-...chick :) Really love all your Codex Alera artwork, your Canim look exactly how I imagined when reading!

I think the composer Adrian Von Ziegler decided to use your amazing picture for one of his musical works. ^-^ I'm actually listening to it right now. :D

Because Horo turned into a badass wolf and did the same exact thing, but (whatshisname) turns out to be a coward and screams like a little girl.

I LOVE Jim Bitcher's book, and i think so many people focus on his Dresden series that they skip over his first work, Codex Alera, which is also pretty good when you read more than just one chapter. Thank you for this awesome art!!!! ^_^

I've no idea what the Codex Alera series is, but this is a good piece. I may have too read it.

Bernard:: *Raises Fist* "Brutus! HOLD!"

Brutus: *Crashes through Wall* "IMMA CRASHIN' THROUGH YO FLOOR!"

Bernard:: "Dammit, not again!"

Sorry, I've been doing these things with the good pieces of art I've stumbled upon this morning, and while I blame the insomnia, I'm really just bored.

Still, this is an awesome piece, so keep up the good work!

The General

I fav'd this ages ago but only just realised IT'S FROM MAY FAVOURITE SERIES OF ALL TIME!! Love how you have interpreted his fury, i always saw it much the same, maybe smaller and thinner, but rock hewn none the less, but if possible do more furies (mainly because i love this series :3) haha but i think seeing the fury of Alera with sextus would be pretty cool (ofc... this is my late night ramblings so feel no need to pay any heed... however that did rhyme... which is kinda awesome XD haha) anyways, i have rambled on too long. Bottom line - awesome drawing.

Just started the 2nd book today. Finished the other a day ago and bought almost the entire set afterward. This is great! Same goes for Amara! Are you eventually going to do any others?

First thought: "Holy Sh*t, that's bigger than a horse" I love the attention to details and how HUGE brutus looks. As in the series he is compared to a small horse/pony. But I think this suits him much better.
