I really don't understand why this game series isn't more popular. <3

I really love this. I think what I like most however is that his face is so accurate...in a lot of fanart, his face is debated and his expressions aren't quite right. This really depicts his personality.

Wow, what an incredible angle. Picture all in dark tones, but you show our favourite, main character. Especially good with with fire, show a bit light

Cool Garrett. And the Rope Arrow! :la:

Very nice and accurate work. And you even got his mech eye exactly right, unlike 95% of everyone. :D One thing that his bow looks more like a longbow than the short one he always has. And shoulder pads? Really? :D

The perspective is cool and almost perfect, but when you look at it a bit more closely, his head looks a bit big. I'm not saying that I could do any better, I suck at wide-angle perspectives. Just pointing it out. :)

YEAH the rope arrow ^^

Anyhow, I'm sure you're right >_< This picture is so old, I'm surprised how well it holds up. On the other hand I had much more patience back then. Today I would probably use my new-learned 3D-skills to pose a character and set up a scene for reference. If I had the original resolution .PSD I would retouch this.

Garrett's got shoulder pads (but no cape :S) in Thief: DS, so I figured it would be ok :p they're kind of leatherly and stuff. Thansk for the crit tho!

I try to ignore the dumb ingame outfit Garrett has in TDS. You can only see it in 3rd person while playing anyway. In the pre-rendered cutscenes he has an entirely different outfit, and in the painted silhouette cutscenes he wears his cloak. Ergo, the ingame outfit was changed as an afterthought, so I view it as non-canon. Plus it's ridiculous.

Like I pointed out in my latest Garrett pic, I think the original outfit of Deadly Shadows (When it was still Thief III) Looks better and makes more sense for a thief.

These are some very old screenshots of Thief III beta. They show the cheap brown layered leather armor, the short-sleeved shirt, the fully clothed arms, and the quite nice leather bracers on his arms. The bracers in the final game look more ornamental than practical. It's supposed to protect your bow-hand from damage by the arrows you shoot right past your wrist.

Although I have read scientific studies that have stated that dark blue/green/red are better colors for stealth outfits because black cuts away too much from surroundings in dark environments. So I would say that's the one thing that the final outfit did better. In Thief 1 Garrett actually had a full dark blue cloak so he knew what he was doing. ;)

Garrett's the MAN, he could probably sneak around in hockey gear if he had to :p

I had a look at your gallery btw. I love pixelart, and your stuff is insane O_o

The perspective is awesome and the lightning is plainly epic. He is so focused on his task and still, there is something in his face showing that he is highly aware of the two guards (?) below who could still spot him.

aw man, now I want to devote another 40 + hours of my life to the Thief series again!

You captured the tone of the games wonderfully! I especially like the little smirk that he has, it's exactly the way you picture him when you play - he's so smug about outwitting people sometimes.

Wow, this is just epic, I love how you drew the face, it looks soawesome! I really like Garrett, he's so cool :heart: And his voice, too - smexy! :giggle:
The perpective is really good, and the colors, too. You can see everything important although if there just dark colors. Also the shading is so super.
All in all, I :love: it!
