Slow ass speedpaint_3: Sha'ik by slaine69 Slow ass speedpaint_3: Sha'ik by slaine69
I thought I'd try some subject matter with this one namely Sha'ik the whirlwind from the Malazan series which I haven't drawn in aaaaaages. The foreground elements are a bit shit but I've knocked the process down to 4 hours so that's a small win. 

Hope you guys dig the pic, crit and pointers welcome.

I love how this scene is at the same time furiously dynamic (with a giant whirlwind and all) and also eerily serene, with its ghostly figures, and the fact that you can see through the Whirlwind a bit.  Very cool interpretation.

You bet, most welcome. Enjoying the updates from :iconmalazan-art-guild:
:iconyoyomagnifyplz:Dude, looking at the "More from :iconslaine69:" here on the right you've got some stunning works(:wow:) in your gallery. I'm looking forward to visiting in the future after I'm further along in the series. :eager:

:iconshadaan:/:iconaraiwein:/:iconluktarig:/:icontattersail::iconderkhanblue:/:iconzsoszy:/:icongenesischant: are on my list of must visit galleries! Having walked into a couple spoiler images when first joining the club (i.e. Karsa V. Icarium :icononionfacepalmplz:) I now view with a mixture of trepidation/enthusiasm/ and awe. Sorta like doing yard work for Lady Envy:iconpervmonkeyplz: or collecting loose Peaks scattered on a floor..that happens to be lined with Cussers:iconyoyosearchplz:.

 Glad such creative folks are inspired by the wonderful story of Mr. Erikson & Mr. Esslemont to make such kewl works :iconyoyocurtnodplz:(Oddly enough I picked up the series after seeing a page of sketched faces for G.O.t.M  back when I joined DevArt. I recall the Raest illustration and was like I should check this story out.):iconseriousnod:Good decision.

No problem! 
Thanks for the tip, but I've seen all of the episodes. In fact, Feng Zhu is basically the reason I'm painting in the first place! I just started painting a little over a year or so ago, and Feng got me into concept art. 
Anyway, I looked through your art and you're kicking some serious ass over there. Keep doing what you're doing :)
