Codex Alera Character Portraits
« on: March 07, 2019, 01:09:42 AM »
Hey all!  Long story short, I got my sister into the Codex Alera series, and she got her work friends into a 'book club' to read through the series as well.  My sister happens to work at a large video game developer, and her book club included artists.  One of her coworkers decided to draw some portraits of several characters from the book series in their sketchbook.  I asked if I could have pictures of them all because I thought they were incredible and I thought you all might like to see some of them!

The first portrait is of Tavi and Fade circa The Furies of Calderon.

I have a few more excellent ones, but will wait to see if anyone even cares to see more.. not sure how active this forum is.  Regardless, enjoy!

Didn't like the one with Tavi and Fade much, but the rest are fantastic! Doroga in particular is a masterpiece.

I know I'm late to the party, but WOW, these are awesome.  Though that's totally Countess Amara there with the horse.

I definitely care to see more pictures! They are great, especially the one of Varg. I also really like your version of Isana, its close to my imagination of her.
Id love to see more pics ;D

Your pictures as always are fantastic mate, keep up the gook work! :)
As for nudity, I personally don't mind, but lets wait for a mod to post.

Thank you!  Just for clarity, I did not draw these.  A co-worker of my sister's drew them.  Don't want to claim credit!   They are definitely incredible though.

Oh yes, I re-read the OP now, I'd forgotten. Still, excellent work from your sister's friend, although I did imagine Bernard a bit bigger. And thanks anyway for posting (Y)

Of course!  and actually.. now that you mention it...  Do you think that might be Fidelius?
