Gyir the Storm Lantern fanart

Gyir's my favourite character in the shadowmarch series, and i can't find any art on this totally badass and cute fairy... so i decided to draw him :)
there's a small spoiler in the pic, be warned.. if you havent finished Shadowplay.

Howdy Sandara. Welcome to the board!

Awesome picture! I envisaged him as being alot paler and thinner. It's good to see what other's imaginations can come up with from the same words :D

*wishes he could draw*

I didn't mean it like that, it's great the way it is. I was just noting how two people's visions of the same thing can be different ;)

Re: Gyir the Storm Lantern fanart

I can only repeat what the others have said, Sandara - great picture!


(Completely off-topic, as is our habit: When I clicked on the link, the advertisement at the top said something about a Laptopakku (laptop battery). It took my heat-damaged brain several minutes to understand that this was not a Finnish word.)

Re: Gyir the Storm Lantern fanart

This is awesome :D  I added you on DA.   Nice to see some Tad fanart.  Been meaning to do some myself at some point =)

Re: Gyir the Storm Lantern fanart

I ran across this pic on DA when you posted it and loved it. I was just grabbing the link to make sure it had been posted here. I'll have my fingers crossed for some more fanart from you.

Re: Gyir the Storm Lantern fanart

gorgeous work!  Your eye for detail is incredible.   :)   I should probably do some fanart pics too, for fun and practice.

Re: Gyir the Storm Lantern fanart

I was browsing around deviantArt recently and ran across your work, Sandara, and I ended up setting a Watch on your profile, and I just now realized that you were the same person that drew this pic.

Goodness, my mind is slow these days.

Anyways, I don't really expect you to be impressed with my artwork, but I'm floating around out there. I'd appreciate a casual glance, maybe...
