Sparrowhawk by FreShPAiNt Sparrowhawk by FreShPAiNt
Sparrowhawk! (From A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula LeGuin)
One side of me felt like I should keep this more realistic and down-to-earth, and the other side of me is wondering why I didn't just going insane with it- so maybe I'll explore that path too.
I figure this is probably him at some point later on in the first book

This is really nice. I appreciate that you remembered Ged's "red-brown" skin, unlike many illustrators.

Beautiful! I've loved A Wizard of Earthsea ever since I read it as a young teen, and this is just how I pictured Ged. Thanks so much!

One of my favorite characters! It's refreshing to see him without white skin (as in the horrible SciFi channel version or bad cover art). Perfect. I love the way you picture him.

I love this design - it's different and unique when compared to the others I've seen ( most seem to go with the design presented in the movie ), yet it's exactly what I'll think when I think about Sparrowhawk in the future. Wonderful, well-done design indeed!

Awesome! I think you found a nice balance between over the top WIZARD and the somewhat nondescript way Le Guinn describes wizards in her books. Where's Little Otak?

Well, I figured since he's got a fur cloak, this is probably after the little guy passed away. =(  I'll do another with the Otak though!
