Got to get back on the horse...



Or goat, I guess. This is Pallas, the goat-like leader of the mythological race called the Gigantes. I'm trying to make up for some lost time, posting-wise, but I haven't had a chance to scan in all that much recent stuff, so this is a somewhat older sketch done in preparation for Grey-Eyed Goddess. There's a nice solidity to the figure, I suppose, though I'm not sure if the head-on portrayal really adequately conveys his size (with a name like Gigante, you know they're big). In the sketches for the book he's always pictured with extreme foreshortening- this was kind of just a little doodle for my own reference. And now yours.
