Fan Art Friday: Warbreaker


michellem

It's Friday, and that means fan art! We've hit May, and the experiment of a Brandon Sanderson-themed fan art Friday continues! Today, I have brought you art from Warbreaker. It's a stand alone novel, about Siri, who is sold as a bride for the God King, her sister Vivenna, the mercenary Vasher, and the god Lightsong. It has a very exciting magic system, where people's Breath can give life to things. The story had some twists that took me completely by surprise! As always, I'll try to keep it as spoiler-free as possible, so my comments might be a bit short, but small spoilers might occur. Let's dive into this week's goodies, shall we?

 

Unfortunately it's a bit hard to find fan art of Warbreaker! But I'm pretty happy with the selection I got.

Warbreaker by DelusionInABox

 

This is a mock book cover, and although of course no one can ever compete with Don Dos Santos' amazing original cover, this one is really cool. It would make me stop and look at the book if I saw it in a bookstore! I think the composition is so cool, it took me a few seconds of studying it to realize the profile of the caped man! That's Vivenna in front, Siri in the middle, Lightsong behind them, and Vasher in the background. And of course, Nightblood the sword. I really like this!

Vasher with Nightblood by Castaguer93

 

This image is a bit dark, that's my only complaint with it. Here you see Vasher using his Breath to animate tassels on his clothing; they'll wrap around his hand and fingers and strengthen his grip. Interesting, yes? I really like this version of Nightblood. Properly sheathed, as it should be. You shouldn't unsheathe Nightblood.

A story for the God king by punker--rocker

 

A quiet moment between Siri and Susebron, the God King. I'm not going say a lot about this, as that will reveal spoilers! But it's a very sweet scene in the books, and I think the artist has captured it very well.

Breath by Emerald-Depths

 

It is rare that I feature photo manipulations, but this one caught my eye. It's a more abstract capture of the concept of Breath and BioChroma. Very beautiful! My favorite picture in the bunch.

 

 

I have a small added bonus today, too! When I had the Mistborn-feature, Occams Whiskey Bottle lamented that there was so little good artwork of Kelsier. So I've gone digging, and I found this and fell in love with it, so here it is, for Occam, and the rest of you to enjoy too.

Kelsier and Mare by LadyRoxanne7

 

This picture just hits all my emotional strings.

 

 

That's it for this week! Thank you all for reading, and as always, tell me your favorite in the comments! I hope everyone has a lovely weekend. Next week we're back to Wheel of Time fan art, and I'd like you to suggest which character you want me to do an in-depth feature of!

How about artwork that focuses on channelers using saidin/saidar?  This is one of the aspects of the series that is hardest for me to visualize in my head, especially the weaving together of different powers.  It would be great to see how artists come up with ideas for how it might look.

I was planning a character feature, but I'll keep this in mind! That's a good idea :)
