So a couple weeks ago I finished reading Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo, which is a really awesome heist story that exists in a fantasy world filled with magic, murder, and mayhem. It's about a team of thieves, murderers, and criminals who get recruited to pull off the most impossible jail break and get paid in millions for the job.
It was a really great book, and I enjoyed it enough to get the sequel and am reading that currently.
The leader of the team is Kaz Brekker, a master thief who is unafraid to get his hands dirty, hence his notorious nickname, Dirtyhands. I decided for last month's Patreon rewards to create a fanart of Kaz for the PDF tutorial, and honestly really loved how he turned out.
And so did fans of the book! The author, Leigh Bardugo, happened to see the art after I posted it on Twitter and retweeted it to her fans, and it was received really well. I think one of the best responses to it was that several fans complimented the fact that I actually made Kaz look the age he is described as in the book, as opposed to some other fan art that's around that makes him look much older (not at all bashing on those artists, they are really beautiful fanarts, it's just that Kaz doesn't look 17 in them). You guys are so sweet and kind!
In any case, some fans asked about whether or not there would be prints available of Kaz, so I have put them up on both my Redbubble and Society6 stores for purchase.
Thank you everyone for being supportive of my art! ❤️
