Fan Art Friday: Shadowspawn


Well here we are again with another ediotion of "Fan Art Friday". There's been requests for Shawdowspawn artwork this week, so that's what we'll do. Remember, if you have requests or want to point me at something to use, just email me: Jennifer@dragonmount.com


First up is this great action shot of Rand filching the Horn of Valere from the trolloc camp in The Great Hunt.




Liruichen has done a great job of depicting the trollocs with animal faces, but human eyes. They look scary. (And really, when was the last time we were scared when our heroes encountered trollocs?) It's a great picture.




Behold the true terror that is Chibi Myrddraal!And those aren't eyes, those are eyebrows according the artist, Jonmkl.




Here's an actually scary one from Qoo42 I picture them as not quite so ghostly, but I'm not going to quibble.




Here's a fantastically creepy digital render of a Draghkar attacking a woman by karibous-boutique That's hella creepy.




And I don't know if he really counts as shadowpawn, but here's Padan Fain. Apparently Mandersen did this on an iPod Touch. I had no idea that was even a thing you could do. This version of Fain is suitably creepy though.


And that's it from me this week. Feel free to share your own favorites in the comments.

those r pretty good Jennifer. ty for the post. I agreee with RyanG that ya dont see many attempts at shadowspawn.... the trolloc post Skald linked is prolly the best rendition ive ever seen. The way the human bits and animal are mixed is really well done.

The ghostly-looking Myrrdral doesn't do it for me, nor does the cartoon-y one, but I REALLY like the Padan Fain pic. I always envisioned Padan Fain like this, sort of like what Steve Buscemi would look like after a 5-day cocaine and meth binge.


As for the creepy one, well, I hope this isn't an unpopular opinion, but I LOVE it! Drakhar SHOULD be creepy. I think they're intended to be creepy in the books. So this is a very tasteful creepy that I like. It reminds a little of HR Giger, only less abstract and with fewer random body parts surgically attached to alien machinery.

The Draghkar pic features the scene resulting in the death of Seana. Note the white hair and the speartip at the base of the picture.
