Fan Art Friday: That's All, Folks!


peregrine

Hey, guys! I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this will be my final Fan Art Friday blog post. I've loved sharing all my favorite Wheel of Time art with you, plus I'm going to miss all the perks of being Dragonmount staff. (No, they didn't let me read an advance copy of A Memory of Light, but they did let me interview a personal hero...but more on this later. You haven't quite seen the end of me yet.) Most importantly, I had the honor of getting to know our incomparable Front Page Admin, Dwyn, and all our other awesome front page bloggers.

 

The engineer in me couldn't resist doing a bit of statistical analysis before waving goodbye, so I'm afraid we'll be ending on a very mathematical note.

 

It's been a good run, with a total of 30 posts, 191 featured artworks, and 241 comments. Interestingly, there is no correlation between the number of works featured in a given week and the number of comments received (correlation coefficient = 0.056). The average number of works featured has been increasing with time (see trendline in figure below) such that, if I were to keep posting, I could expect to be featuring 26 posts per week by week 100 (though the R2 value is only 0.34, so I would not call time a strong predictor...). In case you missed it, this was my most popular post.

 

Here's a figure mapping comments and works featured over time. As a point of curiosity, the lull in July coincides with Tynaal leaving her post as Rotating Features Blogger and Mashi, Ire, and EP coming on board to fill the void. I guess we're better together!

Now that we're beyond that little bit of silliness, I wanted to wrap up with a shout-out to the Wheel of Time group on deviantART and its awesome founder ~Gorgaidon. If you're craving more Wheel of Time fan art, her group is THE place to go.

 

And, of course, it wouldn't be Fan Art Friday without some fan art. Here are a whole bunch of artworks that I've collected over the years which, in spite of being awesome, never found their way into a previous post.

Yep, I will definitely miss these FAF. This post drew me here every week and I really enjoyed going through it each and every time. Thank you for the images you gave me to rely on while reading. Your work has really been appreciated!

 

P.S.: Really like the Siuan Sanche on Bela one... Fish guts!

Thank you so much peregrine! If you could let me know (PM?) if you finish any other WoT piece, I'd really like to see the work you do.

Thanks, everyone!

 

gwenifer, I'll PM you :P If you get a deviantART account you can "watch" me, and it will send you an alert whenever I post a new painting. I don't know if you want another site to keep an eye on, just thought I'd mention!

I'll really miss working with you, Peregrine. It's too bad graduate school is taking you away from me.

 

Everyone, I'll start looking for a new Fan Art Friday blogger after the signing reports from the AMOL release are all done. We'll be putting the regular front page features on hiatus while we cover the signings.

Thanks for all the work you have done in presenting the gems you've found (and for the flashback to statistics class) I've thoroughly enjoyed every post in your Fan Art Fridays, and I will miss it as well.

You've done a GREAT job and I'll really miss your posts. Good selection of art here to end it on a bang. Several of them are personal favorites but a number of them were new to me too (now I have to go find that "Escape the Dancing Cartman" piece by ~Forbis, since I just reread that chapter).

 

"The Wheel turns...." This isn't THE end, but it is an end.

I've been coming back to Dragonmount weekly just to see the art. You will definitely be missed, especially by me.

 

Thank you for taking the time to share everything.
