I know I am late, but seeing my novel's cover here on DA (yes, I'm the author!) is wonderful!
Jason, keep it up, you're a genius!

reminds me of Drizzt - white hair, dark skin, scimitar

never liked completely how they drew him in comics, but that one is very close to how i picture him :)

For italian guys: the title is "L'abbraccio delle Ombre", I've seen it a couple of days ago in a Library in Rome! It will be a "self christmas gift", I suppose! :-)

I have a guess at which novel this is and which author wrote it....

One of the Drizzt Do'Urden books by R. A. Salvatore.

The Wither anyone?
outfit is more or less comparable. Also white hair and background look like that in the game a little bit.

He's an elf! So Drizzt? Oriental weapon just like the one of our beloved drow.

Technically amazing work whatsoever. Keep it up!
