Yesterday on Facebook and Twitter I asked for suggestions for future Fan Art Fridays. I got lots great ideas (and some ridiculous) that I'll be using in the future. One suggestion I saw repeated several times was seeing depictions of some of the locations described in the books.
First up is this digital painting by Shenku-Netsou This is Rand's dream of Tar Valon from near the beginning of The Eye of the World. (Is anyone else amused that most of the plot of the first book was "Let's go to Tar Valon!" and Rand doesn't make it there until Towers of Midnight? Just me? Okay.) Tar Valon is always described as a very beautiful, very clean city.
Richard Boyetook his inspiration for this pencil sketch of the White Tower from the Vatican. Which makes sense, because the medieval Church was one of the inspirations Robert Jordan used when creating the Aes Sedai and their culture.
