Fan Art Friday: A Deeper Look into Jieroque's Gallery


michellem

<!-- isHtml:1 --><!-- isHtml:1 --><p>Happy Friday, fan art fans!</p>

<p></p>

<p>Last week, I posted my own personal favorites, and amongst them was a painting of Egwene by the artist Jieroque. His real name is Benjamin Roque, and he is from the Philippines. Well, I wanted to show you guys the rest of this amazing artists' gallery! So no use waiting, let's dig in shall we?</p>

<p></p>

<p><a data-ipb='nomediaparse' data-ipb='nomediaparse' data-ipb='nomediaparse' href=' Cadsuane Melaidhrin Meladhrin</a><br><br>

Say what you will about Cadsuane, there is no denying she is bad-ass, and this is a great painting of her. This is set during the cleansing of the taint, when she is protecting Rand and Nynaeve. The bright light in the background is the huge beacon of <em>saidar</em>. I like that the artist hasn’t tried to make her look pretty; she looks strong and capable, and a little bit mean, just like Cadsuane should. The way he’s painted her hair ornaments is very interesting, especially that one of them glows, to show that it’s activated. The details of the embroidery on her belt and the texture on her cloak adds so much to her otherwise simple clothes. A painting I could stare at for hours!</p>

From the scene in <a data-ipb='nomediaparse' data-ipb='nomediaparse' data-ipb='nomediaparse' href='http://www.dragonmount.com/Books/Great_Hunt'><em>The Great Hunt</em></a>, where Siuan gives Egwene and Nynaeve a lesson in <em>saidar</em>. Tear, where Siuan is from, is highly influenced by 15-1600ish Spain, and the artist has incorporated that into the image beautifully, giving Siuan a slight Hispanic cast to her features, and in the details of the clothes (the lace, the high neck). A compelling portrait of a very interesting moment.</p>

An action scene from Dumai’s Wells, depicting the two Greens Kiruna and Bera together. I think this picture does such a great job at showing the chaos of the battle; it’s an unusual composition, with Kiruna almost a bit out of focus, the <em>saidar</em>-streams going everywhere, the fire, and the blurry Aiel in the background. And I love the Shienaran warrior!</p>

<p><a data-ipb='nomediaparse' data-ipb='nomediaparse' data-ipb='nomediaparse' href=' Entrapment

A study of a small scene in <a data-ipb='nomediaparse' data-ipb='nomediaparse' data-ipb='nomediaparse' href='http://www.dragonmount.com/Books/Towers_of_Midnight'><em>Towers of Midnight</em></a>; Egwene conferring with Seaine, Yukiri and Saerin on top of the White Tower. This is a high-impact image for me personally. Egwene, looking so young, and with the whole weight of the world on her shoulders. And some of the very, very few women she knows she can trust. The details are amazing; all three women have earrings that showns their nationality (eagle wings for Egwene for Manetheren), the three Aes Sedai in the background all have their serpent ring on different fingers, and the clothes…! I really like the sense of impending drama the blowing banners and the gathering clouds give.</p>

This one has been featured here on FAF before, but I wanted to include it so you could see the full span of this amazing artist’s work. And there is never enough Verin artwork! It’s so nice to see Verin’s kickass-side. This is the artists first digital painting after ten years of not painting, can you believe it? The details in it is amazing. The Trollocs are amongst the scariest I’ve seen, and I really like the little glimpse of Emond’s Field in the background, looking quite peaceful against the action-filled foreground.</p>

<p>Check out the artist's <a data-ipb='nomediaparse' data-ipb='nomediaparse' data-ipb='nomediaparse' href='http://jieroque.blogspot.no/'>blog</a> for works in progress and to get to know this talented artist better!<br>

 </p>

<p>That's it for this week! Use that commentary field to let me know what you think, and if you have a DeviantArt account, maybe stop by and give the artist a favorite and a follow?</p>

<p></p>

<p>Have a nice weekend everyone!</p>

Though I normally don't like the style of these computer-generated works, these ones are pretty good. The Verin one is my favorite.

My favourite is...hard to pick. They are all very close to how the characters look in my mind. Brilliant stuff!

Yeah the Verin one is amazing isn't it?

Yeah I don't think I'd be able to pick a favourite out of these! The Flame of Tar Valon that I featured last week wins by a narrow margin, but the rest here is so close!

I didn't see your comment before now, Minnie! So sorry about that. I'm totally excited about Jieroque and I can't wait to see what he does in the future :D
