Shepherd by Forbis Shepherd by Forbis
Rand al'Thor is just a shepherd.... :( it's all rather tragic really

based on a memory shared in conversation with Egwene, he apparently saves a lamb from a wolf when he was younger.... AWWWWW! lol

Awwwwwwww......This is so precious. And the look on his face - he just looks so happy and proud. This is a really good picture, in a happy/cute/sad way. Makes you think on Rand's character.

Aw, he's adorable.

I haven't finished the series yet (i'm on knife of dreams) but just seeing this makes me sad because i know who he used to be, and who he becomes. Definitely tragic. It's amazing how Jordan can make my heart ache the way it does for these characters.

Awww...little Rand and baby sheep are so cute...

I LOVE this! I wish there was more WoT art on here...but you capture it so well.

'Rand is just shepherd..' So damn true, and the fact that he has the whole world on his shoulders freaks out... he's so misunderstood...
jupiterinleo Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2011
Oh my god. This is so adorable. I love how lanky he looks.
The-WheelofTime Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2011
So... cute. Rand is not my favorite character, not by far. (especially in the later books) But now he has moved up the ranks.

Awww! Adorable!

This is so sad... it makes knowing what he will become so much worse. Poor little sheperd Rand. I want to pat him on the head.

Poor Rand, his story is really a tragic one! This was a great memory that was shared, another wonderful WoT piece that I just have to leave my comment on. ;)
nalakafernando Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2010
now this is the Rand I used to love....too bad he grew up to be a 'woolhead of a man'

great job, I really like the way you do expressions on the characters.

Am hoping you haven't given up on WOT art...will we see more?

Super cute!
greenevans Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2009
you captured the lanky, young, carefree teenager prefectly =)
joelieastell Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2009
Awww!!!! I'm reading WoT at the moment and the innocence of Rand at the start of the series compared to his seriousness and constant pain towards the end is, as you say, tragic... Love this pic :)
Istriel Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2009
Just like the character and your fanart is very nice ^^
swiftadic Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2009
Aw, this is so close to how I pictured Rand with the little lamb! Well done :)
GlassGlobeFlower Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2009
This is too cute! :love:
Anxa-Rose Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2009
<3 Finally someone to get his hair color the same as how I see it in my head. And awww!

The lamb is so cute. <3
MaRina731 Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I've never seen him before nor heard of him - but I like him a lot :) His smile, how he cares about this lamb ... great :) The style is also very cool and the colours, too

I'd love to see you draw a the non-shepherd Rand, for comparison's sake ;)
Plus, he's too sexy for his shirt .. :) I've totally drawn him bare chested just for fun lmao!
I'd be curious to see Perri on his own too!
ScythePunkette Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
I love the sheepish grin on his face. He looks so proud somehow at the same time... adorable.
Phantom-Jaselin Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2009  Student Traditional Artist
awww, sweet. Kind of sad how much he changes. . . :(
googoolini Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2009
this scene is soo cute! I remember that memory... poor Rand, makes me sad really, he was so innocent at the beginning of the series... I feel so sad for all he's been through!
hobbeshugs812 Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2008
Ahhhh Rand is so cute!!
littledigits Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2008  Professional Filmographer
This pic kind of restores the character in my mind. Im listing to the books on tape currently ( although i've read the books ) and him as a shephard is tons more appealing then him as a ...well , angst character lol.

the expression is wicked , his stance and bodylanguage really suits whats going on . You've hit the mark on all of your WOT fanart.

Have you every read george r.r martins series a song of fire and ice ? If you like robert jordan its pretty much a guarantee you'll love those books as well .

Awww, that is just adorable and i love his expression...i see why egwene fell in love with him...*cough cough* ;) :date:
FallingIntoInfinity Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2008   Digital Artist
Aw, yes. :) A far simpler and more innocent time for Rand. I love how you convey how innocent he was at this time in his life. Heh...he's constantly called a shepherd in the books, but you never actually SEE him in that role. Makes this picture all the better. :)
Lorrain Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
The lamb is cute and it's good it was saved ;-)
aireeuh Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2008
I keep squealing at how innocent and cute you made his face. it's the first time I've seen anyone draw him how I thought he should look.
aireeuh Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2008
aaaaaawwwwwww :love:
ZAK333 Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2008
Aww...this picture makes Rand seem so beautifully tragic. I <3 him so much!!
ReddEra Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
:jawdrop: I love it. Except His face looks a little like the way you draw Mat.
Grey-Gryphon Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2008
I think you really captured how Rand used to be before he got all...crazy/angry/angsty...reminds me of why I liked him to begin with!
hfischb1 Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
i remember that exact scene... shadow rising? super cute, and really does remind me of rand!
SayaValentine Featured By Owner May 21, 2008
rand is actually just a lovely teddy bear in heart!! =))
Snezhinka Featured By Owner May 21, 2008
aw, such innocence! :D
juli-chan Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
*cries* Back when he was so innocent and unhurt and *loves Rand* MIiinuh.
FlameoftheWest7 Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2008
This is adorable! I love the expressions and the pose.
tinuon Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
How is it that you're able to portray all the WoT characters so perfectly?

...'tis a sweet picture...
ErinSovenya Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2008
I had forgotten how adorable Rand could be since he's all crazy and hard now (woolhead). He has the best expression, like Egwene is telling him how foolish he is or something.
Brangienne Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2008
i find it quite frankly amusing that his story was so long that he died before he could finish it...and now we'll never know the end until the copywrite wears off cause he's said not too.
Parkerjademerce Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2008
YEAH! Rand isn't a psycho yet!
night-ciris Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2008
This is a great rendition of younger Rand...I forgot about the memory that was brought up, as things like that seem to get buried under the task that rests on his shoulders. He was such a goofy kid, with large hands and feet as Egwene mentions in the first book. :)
centaurfreak Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2007
the lamb looks very cute, and I like his expression
Rakiah Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2007
