I was looking at your Malfoy drawings (I've been re-obsessing over HP for about a week) and as your stuff's so good, I go looking for more in your gallery and then, I found this. At first I was like "hey this person has WoT fan art ! Cool cool cool !" And then I had to facepalm because I realized I know your work (I even have some of your WoT stuff stocked in my computer with hundred of others for when I need the "look at what those people do, now get to work") and I totally missed it :D

Awesome! Read this chapter (again) just a few days ago. Terrific novel and a great series as a whole! Your piece is very well done. Hope you'll do more as you continue along your journey that is the Wheel of Time!

I am just getting started on my reread and I just read this chapter. You did a great job with this and I always love it when artists portray scenes we've only read before. Great work!

:O I am amazed! Simply amazed! I've started the Wheel of Time books recently, and I finished the third book these past two days.

I love all the three main protagonists ^_^ Maybe Mat more than the others... kekekeke. Or maybe all equally. Anyhoo, really great picture. It really captures the moment!

AH! I love your art style, and the way you choose to use it. 8'D The Wheel of Time needs more support... too few people read it. =/

After twelve more, it's a bit hard to remember exact scenes. Still, I love your depiction, it's very well done.
Yeah, I should probobly go back to re-read. I discovered it January of last year, went through all tweve in two months, and spent the next months in agony waiting for ToM. Now that I'm done with that-
Anyway, enough of my rambling. I'm off to see if there are any others as good as yours.
I love that icon...

I've read all the books so far, and I still think the first one was my favorite, before the whole storyline gets bogged down with so many sub-plots you need the wiki to keep it all straight. Back in the days when these characters were still fresh to the adventuring world, totally out of their element, and even living from day to day outside the safe haven of Two Rivers was a real struggle for them.

And, in my favorite book, this was probably one of my favorite scenes (rather, I really enjoyed the Rand and Mat segments of book one, because Rand still wasn't aware of his abilities yet, and still seemed young and innocent, and Mat was still a joker without the weight of hundreds of memories, and both could barely take care of themselves let alone thousands of people).

You've depicted the raw terror, the exhaustion, and the struggle to survive greatly here, and I really enjoy it :) The sense of camaraderie is so strong here, especially with Rand leading the blinded Mat out of the inn after they nearly lost their lives. I can practically hear Mat's quote from that event, when he panicked and begged Rand not to leave him behind because he couldn't see. The later books are great, but Rand, Mat and Perrin never interact anymore, so you really don't see that camaraderie that they had in the earlier books.

Great job :) You make me want to dig out my old copy of Eye of the World and give it another spin, haha!

It's good to see them portrayed accurately at that time in the story. Very nice. (:

I was a rampaging psychotic WoT fangirl back in high school... God help me, I'm rereading the series now, ten years later in light of the final books coming out at last.

It's amazing the things one remembers and the things one looks at the second time around and makes one go "How did I not think this was AWESOME the first time?" or "Why did I ever like THAT character?"

I remember there being a lot of fanart for the series out there ten years ago, but I can imagine how much of it's been taken down over the years. Just finished EotW and am reading New Spring while I wait for the bookstore to get book 2 back in stock, and I have to say that compared to most of that old fan art from ten years back.... Your stuff is made of epicness and win. Thanks for sharing it!

sounds like an interesting book, i shall look it up :)
Whitestar101 Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2010
I love the interaction between Mat and Rand in this series, especially how they took care of each other after Whitebridge, and it was during this part of the story that I Rand became my favorite character. You can almost hear him say, "I won't leave you, I won't leave you no matter what."

And, you even got Mat's size in proportion to Rand's correct (which so many artists do not). You can imagine how hard it must have been for Mat when Rand was hanging off of HIM.

Great Job!! :)

This is great, I love Mat's stance and his facial expression, it exudes pain and suffering to me. I love your Wheel of Time artwork. :D

Mat = :heart:

Hrm.. could've sworn I had favorited this and commented apparently not! Well, I absolutely love this piece. The urgency of the situation is really well conveyed and being the die-hard Wheel of Time fan I am, I love to see other people's depictions of the characters. I think you really got Mat spot on and Rand looks fantastic as well. You did an awesome job on the clothing too. Really really great job!
GlassGlobeFlower Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2009
Aww, poor Mat! Looks like drowned rat lol. And Rand is suitably courageous-looking. :D

Who knows if this has all ready been said, but I love how you portrayed their AGE correctly. All the fanart I've seen (few and far between) the boys always look like they're in their thirties.

They're 17 guyz kthnx!!!

This picture got me to start reading the series, and I really really really (5 min. later) really like it A LOT! I have only just reached the second book, so by the time I reach the end I will most likely be totally in love with it :love:. I love your versions of the characters better than the cover art of the paperbacks.
vaoni-adolpha Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2008
Oh man, this part of the book made me cry. I don't know why but the thought of how desperate but loyal they were to each other was so beautiful!! I loved this part of the book!
Great picture, it really is!!

I don't usually like fanarts of the main characters of the wheel of time, but these are the first I find really fantastic!! you should be doing the graphic version^^ :love:

I am just starting to read this series(almost done with book one) and this part really got to me. I was freaking out because of what happened with Thom and then my favorite character ends up blind. I almost started crying at how helpless he was. D': Great job on this I love it!
