My goodness, you are GOOD, Nadia! Those are excellent! Please, when you get the time, see my daughter's work in http://arwenart.com . Only one drawing from Thomas Covenant so far, but she does a lot of animae. Again, super work, Nadia!

Since you guys are deep in the "art" of The Land discussion Wink
I'm taking the oportunity to ask you how you guys visualize some of the
creatures in the novels.
I'm asking because I'm running an RPG game based on the first chronicle
and I would like to show up some pictures to my players to help them
imagine what the land and its creatures looks like...

Bloodguard: I was thinking about using some sort of a Yeti/Bigfoot kind
of picture. I can't recall where in the 1st book the haruchai
are described but I always saw them Ape-man like...

Ur-Viles: Shadow, kind of dark foggy creature

Demondim: Devil like creature. Fangs. Look a little bit like Diablo from the
Computer game

Wayhim: No eyes!! I can't think of anything similar to look for (i.e. using
a picture taken from the web)... Any ideas??

Cavewigths: For those of you who ever saw the Earthdawn RPG book,
there's a creature called Kreescra (couldn't find the picture on the web...)
It's a misshapen kind of creature with big feets/hands and a long face with
deep eyes sockets

Any comments?? How do you guys see those creatures?? And others...

Bloodguard as Yeti. Well, that's a new one.

If you look at Bannor's avatar, you will have a very good idea of what I think a Bloodguard looks like. Initially, I associated them with the Romulans from Star Trek...but now I am not sure why.

I probably won't have time to do this for a few days, but at some point I (or other fans here) could double check the descriptions (in the books) of the creatures you listed and let you know how hot or cold you are.

Check back in with us. Cool avatar BTW.

I have always associated the bloodguard with the Klingon race from Star Trek .. with a kind of vulcan language .. like someone on the other forum protrayed them in a fan-fic ..

I only read this last page .. did anyone bring the fan-art from the old forum over here?? I am sure Hearthcoal has already attended to that .. but I will scan the first page and see .. The art that umm ... that amazing young artist did on the other forum was outstanding .. now what was her name?? Far out .. I wrote to her and all ... damn this memory .. anyway she knows who she is and her work is brilliant!

I will come back when I recall her name .. Embarassed

Well, I must admit the yeti picture might be stretching it. My point was
that I always portrait the haruchai to be more "savage"/beastlike that
bannor actual avatar... The Klingon avenue is one I like too...
I don't know, just looking at where the race came from and what
kind of mentality they have, I just can't associate them to be human like...

What about the cavewights??? How do you guys seem them? They are
probably the race from the Land that got the least attention/details about
there apperance...

I definitely do not agree with mixing Star Trek characters into TCTC; I think the Haruchai are very much human, with a flat face, slanted eyes and an accent - a very Far-Oriental picture, I think. If I close my eyes, I see the face and figure of Chow Yun Fat the actor, as a perfect Bannor.

as for the Ur-Viles, I don't think they are "foggy" at all; actually, SRD gives quite a godd description of them: smooth black skin (like Vain), long thin but powerful limbs, and a Martian-like face with gaping nostrils and no eyes and two slits on the sides for ears

I've changed name from that odd singhalese name "priyangika" to nadia. Felt it was a bit too exotic for me....But I'm still me.

As for the haruchai I still picture them as maoris (but without the facial tatoos that is).

Not all Maoris have tattoos Smile But no, the Maori have eyes that are too bright for the Bloodguard.

I also don't see them as an alien race, possibly Mongolian.

Yep, I've noticed your pictures on the Fan Art page. They are all very good. The Forestal is my favorite of the three. The detail in the vegetation is amazing. But what really got my attention was the Forestal's face. Is it meant to be Hile Troy?

I think the third picture is mis-captioned. Can you tell us what it depicts? And when do we get to see a fourth submission??? Don't keep us waiting too long.

For anyone who hasn't seen the Fan Art, now you have no excuse. Get out of the galley and go check out the gallery. Smile

Great pic, Off Center, but I always pictured Revelstone on the ground (but like the picture otherwise). If it were as the pic relates it, almost no one could even try to attack Revelstone. What do you think?

Very cool! I didn't realize there was a bridge crossing in that location--however there is more than 1 way 2 access Revelstone. I'm kind particular about including the watch tower in my drawings, but if that bridge symbolizes the 1 crossing Furl Falls I could live w/that. I imagined the Falls in a completely dif location--but that doesn't matter--PLEASE use that, if u can, it is tottaly awesome!!! If I can find a scanner somewhere I'll send u some stuff!

nice pics; Coercri is not so polished in my imagination, but what the heck; it's good to see that someone has drawn at least some illustrations of my favourite world
