Fanart and zombies

Sorry for the late update – things have been crazy at home: we had bed bug alarm in the building. No bed bugs in my room, thankfully so far, but I have been terribly paranoid fort he past two weeks. Additionally, my laptop refused to power up after a DELL technician “repaired” – so no laptop for almost a week and no replacement by the company (seriously, baaad costumer service – except that one lady, she was awesome). Then, after being an extra at a zombie shoot for a documentary (title to be announced) I caught a bad summer cold (no kidding, I got an INFECTION after being at a zombie shoot, hilarious).

Anyways, my art has suffered under the stress of the last weeks, but I’m trying to get back on track. I decided to do a piece of fanart for a book I’m reading. Seriously: Fanart is great because it’s something to be passionate about. The book I’m talking about is “The Lies of Locke Lamora” by Scott Lynch, a newcomer in the fantasy sector. The book features a gang of honorable thieves in a very interesting fantasy city based on middle age and Victorian Venice plus pirates, magic and other awesome stuff.
I made a picture showing the two main characters, Locke and his friend Jean.

I'm pretty sure that's Benjamin Carre, who does great stuff for Bragelonne, my publisher in France.
