Scenes you'd like illustrated.

Recommended Posts

I was discussing this with a friend the other day and thought I'd put it to the forum. What scenes from the books would you like to see illustrated, either as fan art or perhaps professionally done when Tor starts releasing the new covers?

almost any.  does that count?

 

but seriously...so many...ill start with mat meeting the aeil on the roof tops of tear.

 

and any random everyday scene of city and village life.....thats what really makes the series for me....the ordinary scenes.

I would want to see the either the part in TSR when Perrin sees the mortally wounded man who tells him "we're coming!"

 

The Battle of Falme and the part with the Heroes of the Horn and Rand's fight with Ba'alzamon.

Rand vs Rahvin, I'd like a shot of just before Rahvin is struck with the balefire. With the massive slab of balefire in the drawing.

 

Rand almost killing Bashere and his army with Callandor, with lightening shooting in all directions like in Mins viewing

When Sevanna sees the Dragon Banner rise over the slaughter at Dumai's Wells.

 

I attempted drawing it one time, just because of how epic a scene that is, but I didn't like the drawing at all.

All the above plus; Far Dareis Mai kicking ass and taking names, guardswomen kicking ass and taking names, Aes sedai kicking ass and...Actually, Aes sedai getting smashed by Asha'man. 

 

Besides those...

Far Dareis Mai training, Far Dareis Mai getting p*ssed on Oosquai, Far Dareis Mai walking around, Far Dareis Mai eating food, Far Dareis Mai saying stuff, Far Dareis Mai... Far Dareis Mai-ing...

Ha, same. Well not the same scene but like the whole drawing thing. since college started back though, I haven’t really been able to do anything.

 

College assignments are bloody crap.

Maybe not the most epic scene but the classic "...The wind rose..."

 

Its special, whenever I read the first paragraph of the first chapter its always chills, I would like to see it pictured. What would be really amazing if there was a recording of Jordan reading the first paragraph or five of EotW, and it being attached to the first scene of rand when the wind blows his cloak.

 

That would bring back sooooo many memories whenever you looked at that.

Yes, illustrating wind blowing past random backgrounds would be remarkably time-saving for RJ and his illustrator.  :)

The cleansing

and finally I wanna see The Heron Unfolds The Fan into The Waterfall Runs Down The Cliff into The Cat Crouches In The Grass with blood and everything :)

Why is it that so many scenes of similar quality in ASOIAF have been illustrated, along with some pretty amazing art work of characters, but we're reduced to asking what scenes we'd like to see, and the bulk of WOT art I've found has been crappy in the extreme?

I wonder if has something to do with copywrites. Is there possibly some issue about using this material in a rendering for profit or something.

 

You would think artisits that have read the dragonlance series like Larry Elmore, Kieth Parkinson, and Jeff Easly could come up with some good stuff for WOT.

What an AWESOME Question Kathana!!! :)

 

Hmmm...Images *I* Think would be Cool...

 

1 Lan hanging onto Rand's wrist to keep from falling off that roof at that one place in ACOS!

 

 

2 The rows of AS Kneeling at the end of LOC - DUH!!! LOL - How many will list THIS lol???

 

 

3 The Goblet falling from Mat's hand and crashing to the ground - and the look of shock on his face - as they realize Mordeth doesn't have a shadow in Shadar Logoth in TEOTW!

 

 

4 Moraine Damodred and Lanfear falling into the Doorway TTer-Angreal in Rhudean in TSR!!!

 

 

5 Demandred, Messana, Graendal, Moghidien, Cyndane, Arangar, Semirahge and Moridin (did I miss anyone?) when they were all sitting around in their Thrones in The Gardens during The Forsaken Social in KOD!

 

 

Well, those would be my Top 5 Picks! :)

I would love seeing Rand do the Little Fish, Big Fish, CARDBOARD BOX dance.

 

In all seriousness, I would like it to become a TV series with films or something as well, or maybe a movie in the beginning showing that book that came before (sorry, I have forgotten much) and start the series with book one. If anyone has seen the Stargate movie and then the series you'll understand what I'm talking about.
