The 5th Elephant - Colored by JesIdres The 5th Elephant - Colored by JesIdres
Since I'm reluctant to start reading Harry Potter, I managed to finish my submission for 's contest for our own versions of our favorite discworld book.

I guess the reason I like this book so much is that once the main characters I love so much are taken out of Ankh-Morpork, their characters suddenly become so much more focused and realized. From Sam's development as political and human figure, to Carrot's humanizing and actualizing emotion. And once you go to those levels, you can't go back.

This piece took about 2-3 hours sketching wise, then 15-20 hours coloring with a Wacom tablet and Photoshop 7.

Carrot Ironfoundersson, Angua von Uberwald, Samuel Vimes, Cheery Littlebottom, Gavin and Discworld (c) Terry Pratchett (PTerry).

Beautiful work! :clap: Your drawings of all these characters fit my mental images of them almost perfectly! I love their eyes here especially. The big shines make them seem innocent and kind, even though they are still tough.

Love the Vimes. Not many people can draw him this good - especially his hair getting grey gives him fine look.

And , of course, great job on others.
