Inspired by Mervyn Peake's gothic novel, Titus Groan, here's Swelter the Cook drawn in Photoshop with the airbrush tool...

Wow that's disturbing :)

You've really captured the effect of gravity on his ....uh.....excess flesh. Great likeness, in comparison to how I'd imagined him.

One of my favourite sequences of all the novels I've read is the battle between him and Mr Flay. Are you planning to draw Flay at all? Would be a nice compliment to this.

Nice work.

:) Cheers, guys, I appreciate your comments. I usually work in Lightwave, but there's a lot of fun to be had with the Photoshop airbrush tool which is great for achieving almost 3D effects. Nightwing, cool to meet a fellow admirer of Peake... he's a very visual writer and was an artist in his own right. There are some other gothic characters inspired by Titus Groan I'll post here... Rottcod is one of them...
