I had so much fun last week finding pictures of Moiraine and Lan, I thought I'd do another character themed entry. So here's some art depicting Egwene in the various stages of her development. This is a nice sketch I found on DeviantArt by *fee-absinthe. I'm assuming that this is meant to be from the beginning of the series, as this looks like the sort of outfit an innkeeper's daughter might wear. There's no hint yet of what's in store for her. This is a great water color by Helena Zeegers. Helena used to have a very large amount of fan art available online, but it went down with Geocities. I found this on a site that had archived some of her work. Anyone have working contact info for Helena so we can ask her to put her WoT stuff online somewhere? I like this piece because it shows Egwene pretty early in her story. We know she's headed to the Amyrlin Seat someday, but right now she couldn't be further. And Min is with her. You don't see much of Min and Egwene together in the later books, so it's nice to see this reminder of how deep their friendship goes. Another picture from DeviantART. This one is by Vulcan82. This one is the closest to how I picture Egwene when I read. It's the stubborn jaw, I think. I love the look of oil pastels that was achieved here. It looks like something that might actually exist in Egwene's world. Another of Egwene, the Amyrlin. This one is by Richard Boye. Richard was one of the first people to start posting Wheel of Time fan art online and for a long time was considered the gold standard for fan artists. I actually used this as an avatar here at one point, back before I knew you needed permission for that. And one last piece... This is by RoseMuse. It needs no commentary. Are there any depictions of Egwene that I missed? Post em in the comments for everyone to enjoy.
Hi folks, We're launching a new feature on Dragonmount today: Fan Art Friday. Jason and I have always wanted to do more to showcase the wonderful creativity of the Wheel of Time community and this seems like a good way to do that. Some weeks I'll showcase a particular artist. Other weeks I'll focus on different interpretations of characters or scenes. If a post will have Towers of Midnight spoilers, I'll be sure to say so. This week, since we're running the New Spring giveaway, I thought I'd pick out a few portraits of Moiraine & Lan. This piece is by Cicely Combs. Long time fans of Dragonmount will recognize a portion of this piece. It was one of the rotating corner icons we used in the previous site design. One of the things I've always liked about this Cicely's art is the way she uses lines. The thick, dark lines give it the feel of a stained glass window to me. Your eye follows them, and it gives a sense of movement. You can almost see the cloaks flapping in the wind. It's a great piece. This one I found on DeviantART by an artist who goes by "Manweri". This is a really nice, classic interpretation of the two. With Moiraine wielding saidar and Lan hefting that big sword, you get a sense of how dangerous these two are. Here's a really nice pencil sketch of Lan by himself. The proportions are a bit off, but I really like the way the artist did the color shifting Warder's cloak. You can just barely see the outline of it surrounding Lan. This one was found on Elfwood. It's by Greg Scott. Check out this stunning portrait of Moiraine by DeviantART user "Westling". One of the nice details I notice is that she has thin stripes of red, white and green, the Damodred House colors in the trim of her bodice. It's a detail that you don't usually see in fan art. The dark blue over gown has an incredible richness to it. The texture looks like velvet. And the lighter colored underskirt looks patterned, like lace. It's an incredibly textured painting and it adds to the realism for me. This looks like a costume you might see at JordanCon or Dragon*Con. Well, that's all for this week. Did I miss your favorite version of Moiraine and Lan? Feel free to post links in the comments section.
