Wheel of Time characters by Forbis Wheel of Time characters by Forbis
okay, since the last post got a far better reception than i was excpecting (..i was expecting next to nothing) i thought i'd indulge further... :)

from left to right; Matrim Cauthon, Rand al'Thor and Perrin Aybara, main characters from the 'Wheel of Time'

selfishly last time i said i want more people to read it, or draw from it, it seems hardly any fanart exists for it! i want to see more! :P

I will create the fan art base all by myself if i have to!! lol

I think you have to be one of the only people who doesn't color Rand's hair as REALLY red. It's supposed to be a dark brownish-red, but everyone just makes it a nice fiery shade! Thank you for coloring it correctly! (And I am super envious of your hand-drawing skill!)

I would be perfectly fine with you creating all the fan art in this style. My only, only teeny tiny critique, is that they almost look like they should be from LOTR, particularly Mat....but who am I to say cause I can't draw.

I love it!Forbis>I agree there should be way more work about that fabulous series-what did  you think of  tarmon gai'don?Wish Jordan could have finished it hsself.

I love your fanart !!! I'm actually reading tome 3 of the new edition, since I discovered the series this year, and I just love it and it lacks some fanart !! Yours is awesome !! ;)

Mat is especially awesome !! :la:

I love the way you portray Mat and Perrin, they are spot on in my opinion.

this is genuinely my favourite picture of Perrin Aybara- my favourite fantasy character hell even my favourite character ever. i thought it really conveyed his own brand of resigned resolution he gains early on to the path he is set on!
BioStormX Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2013
It's some nice artwork and I appreciate that artists get to take a bit of liberty but I can't help but cringe from the completely wrong hair colors ahhh >_>

I just started reading Wheel of Time, it's great!
Your drawings are very good, but I must say in my head these three ta'veren are somewhat prettier... (Nevermind, just fangirling...)
Lord-Luca-the-Third Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2012
Ehehehe, Mat, why you so awesome and charming.
EchoCharlieNiner Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012

I love your renderings of them!! is awesome... am also a fan of the books, ... and have been wanting to draw some characters out of it for ages... just can never decide on who to draw... any suggestions??? xx
Lometari Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2012
You got Mat's mischievous smile amazingly right.
PrestonH Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I love the way you pictured Perrin and mat but for some reason I think Rand looks a little too scrawny in this picture still love it though XD
cookiekins40 Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2011
Very nice pics, sir, and I will diligently try to finish the series! Hahahahaha I'm a long time WOT fan, and although I haven't been able to read them for as long a time as I would like, I have managed to get to book 11 with a flourish. I will try my hand at characters soon, since I am also an aspiring artist!!!

I agree there are far too few fansites for such a great series!!!!
cookiekins40 Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2011
Maybe Perrin could use a beard...
PrestonH Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Also I believe he used a hand axe the one he has in this pic looks more like a battleaxe...
Darkest-Concubine Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
I agree, there should be so much more fanart for this series!!!
Lixbit Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2011
I love them! Personally I think Mat's a little Blonder, Rand's a bit redder and Perrin... well, he's pretty darn good.
robchristianson Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2011  Professional Interface Designer
Those are great. Mat's my fav. Great expressions.
xXNoraMarieXx Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This is brilliant! :D
Dragonbreader Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2011
Cool but Rand has short redish hair and Perrin's hair is short.

Chixiepea Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2011
I like this, the only criticism I would have is that Rand should have lighter hair. But I love the different character in each of their faces!
The-WheelofTime Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2011
Go Matrim! I'm guessing you based it off of the beginning books. Great Job! We do need more WoT pictures.... Um...
Lims-Kraghma Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2011  Hobbyist
I like this too... Rand doesn't have the tattoos yet , but still cool :) Mat is my second favorite with his smile and "great luck".... and most favorite Perin - i kinda have a thing for wolves and axes :D Love them!!!
IBlodyXI Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Epic drawing I love those books but haven't Perrin blond hair :? anyway epic drawing
cloclo959 Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2011  Hobbyist

PERIN!!!! :D :D :D :D
zwaard-drager Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
this is probably my favorite fanpic for this book! the characters are spot on
Reading the second book (somewhere in the middle) and I am in love with Perrin :lol: - and your version is really great I must say :)
yorishi Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2011

hey, I didn't want to know that! :)
V357Cephei Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2011
This looks like it's prior to a lot of their hardships. Perrin needs a beard! :P

Why does Mat look so much like a girl?
Alsdale Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Just joined deviantART and realized I should actually go back and comment on all those amazing art pieces I fell in love with years ago. Absolutely beautiful; I've had this piece on my computer for years. I'd love to see your interpretation of these characters later in the series, if you kept reading.
