His name is Tool with the meaning of "tool"? it got translated to hungarian as "Túl" which would mean too far. But that makes no sense so I thought that his name has no meaning.

'Tool' is short for Onos T'Oolan, which I think means 'shorn' or 'unbound' (i.e. from his clan).

This is pretty much far and away more awesome than I ever imagined him. I'm taking this image with me, in my mind, while I finish Memories of Ice. Great job :).

There's no limit to the amount of things I could find to compliment about this drawing. Probably the best one I could think of is that it's almost identical to the image of him that his first appearance in the book put into my head.

Love the motion around Tool's cape and sword. I just read the first Malazan Book of the Fallen and Tool is still fresh in my memory, so it really caught my eye how accurately you portrayed him!

Cool design, there's a gritty feel about it that I like :3

Personally I think you could've increased the contrast a bit :)
Reply
:iconjeanfverreault:
jeanfverreault Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
you mean the scan or the in the drawing itself..more contrast between black and white maybe? :confused:
Reply
:iconnezim:
Nezim Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2010
I'm not entirely sure - either the scan doesn't do justice to the darkest shadows, or you could've added darker shadows to the drawing. I think it could be solved by increasing the contrast a tad in PS or something (or going over the drawing with a soft pencil to get out the darkest shadows).
