Amazing, I love Gyir so much, too sad... ( I don't want to spoil :) )

It's a great series, I'm reading Shadowrise now. In English! That's a big thing to me, since my mother language is Hungarian :)

Your art really captured him :)

I think that armour would look epic on a human. I can't say I like the whole concept of the character but the kickass armour makes up for any misgivings I may have :D

This is an AMAZING work of art. I tried to paint him once, but just didn't capture it. This is perfect. He's my favorite character from the books. Good on you!

just reading it the 2nd time...

great book and your picture fits perfectly to it!
How about doing more for this theme?

(The first described attack by the 'monsters' is something I'd like to see drawn...)

nice pic.

I imagined him quite different, with a softer face and maybe a bit slender...
But I got used to this one very quickly^^

However I thought the flesh benath his skin-mask was red and strange, without or with a different type of skin, not just as if he had some more skin over his ordinary face O_o

yay, reading Shadowplay now, so I had to come back and check out your painting of Gyir again. I pictured him a little different, but that's artistic license for you :D

I'm really enjoying it, about halfway through at the moment, and I might do some art myself. I think Yassamez might deserve a painting, or Barrick and Briony perhaps...hmmm

A well-drawn interpretation of Gyir. I like this image a lot. I've had Gyir on my mind lately (I love the concept and have been meaning to draw him, or another encauled).

I've recently picked this this title again. I need to reread the first and second again before the third comes out again . . .
