This one is an unofficial WIP.
That means I might work on it further, might not.
For the fans of the character here is my sketch of Terry Pratchett's Cohen The Barbarian !!

@SCP, thanks, of course the character credit goes to Mr.Pratchett :) btw, i missed seeing the painting you have in your avatar, is it there in any thread/gallery? It looks great and deserves to be looked at in detail..:)
@Robert, Thanks so much & totally agree with you on TP :)

You snuck this one by me today Fly! (to busy painting today I guess!) Fantastic sketch! I would call this done but I love sketches! You have a wonderful technique as well. I like the way you line your shadows instead of blend them with a tool. Almost a pen and ink technique with the pencil. That's real sketching my friend and not easy to do!!! Awesome post and great concept!

Hey Sketch,

You snuck this one by me today Fly! (to busy painting today I guess!) Great painting that turned out to be I must say!!!

Thanks a lot man! I love sketching too, I guess it's my education in architecture that does it! I love the pen&ink sketching and I suppose it manifests itself in any medium I use. LOL. Probably that's why I have such a hard time with oils :) in fact I've never even painted with oils or acrylic in real media.
& yes for the time being this is done, I'm trying to do more of the characters from the TP books. maybe it'll get revived at some later date :)

thanks again for checking this out!

I'm not sure that it needs much more work... sometimes less is more. This is a fantastic piece.
