"He scared me," Rand said faintly. "He just looked at me, and…" He shivered.
"No need for shame, sheepherder. They scare me, too. I've seen men who have been soldiers all their lives freeze like a bird facing a snake when they confronted a Halfman. In the north, in the Borderlands along the Great Blight, there is a saying. The look of the Eyeless is fear."
~Chapter 8 ("A Place of Safety"), The Eye of the World
Oh, for the days when Rand was still afraid of things. But that's a topic for another day. Today, the Fan Art Friday spotlight is on the eyeless, soulless captains of the Dark One's army known alternatively as Myrddraal, Lurks, Fades, Halfmen, or Ringwraiths (Whoops, wrong series!). These spine-chilling, slithery monster-men are my favorite Wheel of Time minions.
...Or should I say "mini-ons?"
This daunting beastie sends soldiers running with a single toss of his carefully arranged emo hairstyle.
Even Myrddraal need downtime sometimes. I mean, it's not like they're going to cook the soldier stew themselves. That's what trollocs are for.
Apparently the deviantArt mascot (Fella) is a fan of The Wheel of Time. He'd better be, since I'm always featuring work from his site!
Nothing says "sinister" like Sculpey®!
This Australian fan artist's playful style is pitch-perfect, as always.
