Hey.  Been a while since we "chatted".  How's it going?  Since you mentioned it below.  Any interest in drawing Yarvi and co. (admittedly not the most unusual bunch).

Also, I'd love to see your take on the Dagger and Coin cast- not only is there really no fan art for the books but I struggle to get a picture of what the different "races" look like.

Indeed. Actually I don't find many of the different races of man all that interesting in the Dagger and the Coin. I just like Basrahip haha. Basrahip is my favorite.

And yes, I do have a lot of interest in drawing a lot from Half a King. I'm way into that story. However I'm pretty swamped lately and I don't have as much time to draw for fun anymore. When I do though, those two series are top of my list.

Thanks for the reply.  Take your time.

Yeah, Basrahip is cool (makes me think of Melisandre if she had a sense of humor).  Kit's great too.  It's not so much finding them interesting as trying to picture them.  Come to think of it, the main characters are all human or close to it (Cithrin probably looks a bit elfin and Yardem is probably pretty human looking; just a bit furry and with dog ears).

well I guess that's what I mean. Like there aren't many characters who aren't human that really inspire me. Yardem is really cool. This series just hasn't hit me as well as some of his other stuff though.

Do you mind if i use the Caraxes/Daemon vs Vhagar/Aemond duel as a cover for a fanfiction?
Sir-Heartsalot Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2015
yeah go nuts, thanks for asking!

Hi! I've been looking through your gallery and I'm totally in love with all your fanart for some of my fave books. You really bring the characters to life with your quirky style! I love 'em. Anyway, I have a weird question. You seem to have exactly the same taste in books as me and I was wondering if you have any recommendations on what I can buy next. I've just gone through the Joe Abercrombie books, and have already read Scott Lynch and Patrick Rothfuss. Are there any other similar authors you could recommend? 
Sir-Heartsalot Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2015
You finished Joe Abercrombie's new series, Half a King and Half the World, which just came out? If you haven't I'd start there.

Also I assume you've read George R. R. Martin, you didn't mention it but I had to ask haha. All three Hedge Knights and everything? Even his short stories are better than most fantasy novels out there. If you're interested I could recommend some of my favorites.

After Abercrombie, Rothfuss and Lynch you are definitely coming into some slightly fishier territory. I would say the next best series would be Daniel Abraham's Long Price quartet, which is finished, and then his other series uhhhh the Dagger and the Coin I think? Either way Daniel Abraham is a name that should perk your ears up a little.

Brent Weeks is also pretty good, a little underrated he's a lot better (and gets better with each book) the Lightbringer series is what he's currently on. I'm actually pretty into his Lightbringer series, although it's very different from Scott Lynch, Abercrombie or Rothfuss.

Thank you so much for asking, I love books and talking about them is like my favorite thing so if you have any other things you want to discuss feel free to ask.

Also thank you for your kind words about my scribblings!

Ah, actually I was referring to Abercrombie's old series, the one with Ninefingers, Bayaz, Luther etc. Anyway I've read Half A King, but I had no idea it was part of a series! Will definitely pick up the second one. 

I keep trying with Sam Sykes' series, the Aeon's Gate, but I just can't get through them. There's not enough substance to the plot imo. I might try his new series though... hopefully he'll flesh that out a bit more. 

Anyway, going back to your recommendations! I actually haven't read George R. R. Martin's books for a number of reasons, primarily that I don't tend to like books that have too many character perspectives going on. So many names, so many places, so much politics. I sound lame, I know. I may give them a look one day but for now I'm quite happy following the TV series. 

I will definitely give Daniel Abraham and Brent Weeks a look! I feel like it's so hard finding fantasy novels that don't fall into the old boring genre traps. Anything dark and different suits me just fine. Thank you for taking the time to reply! I love books too, so if you come across any cool books in your reading travels please drop me a line :)
