Steerpike by Gemedette Steerpike by Gemedette
Well well well...My first submission. Sort of a test to see how this site works. ^_^
Never put any of my stuff on the web before....
Anyway, this is a a sort of concept pic from Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast. (Fantastic story!!!) The character's name is Steerpike.

Oo, Really nice portrayal of Steerpike! It captures his bitter cunning very well.

I refuse to believe that's your first submission. My first submission was a stick-figure waving a flag or something. But that speaks for itself.

Gorgeous!

Wow. His expression and posture are just perfect, and the background architecture reminds me of Mervyn Peake's own sketches.

I love this! Non-Jonathan Rhys Meyers Steerpike! The narrow shoulders, the high forehead...the look like he's calculating how best to skin you alive. It's perfect.
And the colours are absolutely beautiful. Fantastic job!
If only there was more Gormenghast fanart like this out there...

Good ol' Steerpike, featured in most of my dreams during the time when I was first reading the trilogy.

Stunning and elegant. Got a real 'power behind the throne' vibe, which of course sums up Steerpike perfectly.

Very nice stuff! I just started Titus Groan the other day, I'm only up to his christening, so Steerpike has not been very key yet, but I love the pic! Very moody and stylistic, just like the book. :D

That's wonderful!!
Your depiction of him is one of the best I've ever seen.He's just as Peake describes him. And his face is...just perfect!!!

Woo, you draw a very fine-looking Steerpike, and for the love of God he is done in the creepy book style and not as bloody JRM! :glomp:

I would love to be in that chair. :drool:

I like the fact that he is leaning on a seat perhaps even a throan? The backdrop is very nice, dark, wet just how it should be. Steerpike looks full of malice. Nice work :thumbsup:

Yay! Steerpike! I love him. I love that it's not Jonathan Rhys-Meyers! (Even though he's pretty good looking....) I like the way his arms are crossed. I'm impressed. Really impressed. REALLY impressed. *fave*

Wow. I really dig the color use. Very interesting. As well as the sort of sketchy walls...

np! :D Um, sometimes the pictures don't go when you click on it the first time, they usually come up if you go back and click on it again, though. :P
