Shanka!


A quick drawing of a the Shanka while waiting for scenes. The thing I remember most in the descriptions of them (When we eventually got one two books in) was that they had wide flat heads, long hairy arms and teeth so deformed their lips couldn't close over them. I guess long hairy arms doesn't necessarily mean long hair on their arms but I had kind of pictured them as a feral orcy orangutang race. I would have drawn the arm hair way long but it looks weird when I do that.

Oh cool.

Fucking flatheads. There's never just one, is there?

Sean Covernton said...

Yeah there is. See! Just one!

True enough. But you know more of his stinking, gibbering brethren are nearby just waiting to put the next northman they see back in the mud.
