A commission for the front page of Dragonmount.com [link]. I've been dying to share this one for weeks, but I had to wait until it went up on the site! A million thanks to DM for the commission and feedback. Any mistakes are entirely my own.

Moiraine, Perrin, Rand, Egwene, and Elayne (left to right) at the Field of Merrilor (well, thematically speaking … Thakan'dar and Shayol Ghul are obviously elsewhere …)

Download to see it full-size! It's actually pretty large.

This is freakin cool... on many levels. I love all the symbolism in it. But where's Mat?! Is he hiding?

Thanks so much! I don't know if Mat is going to show up at the Field of Merrilor or not ... he wasn't planning to at the end of the last book. I haven't had the chance to buy the new one yet (I will tomorrow!!!). Anyway, that's why I left him out :)

I seem to remember Mat saying he had something to retrieve that belongs to him, before he goes off to the Last Battle ;)

But anyway I love this!

OHAI Moiraine. Haven't seen you in a while.

Really cool!

np! This looks like it should be a on a tapestry or a wall hanging with, like, animal skins and celtic knots winding around it... I'm going to get right on that.

haha that would be something to see :D
I knew this was your's as soon as I saw it on DM. I love it! I think your WoT paintings are some of my all time favorite art. Thanks so much for your paintings and best of luck on the qualifiers!

Oh my gosh, that's awesome. I would have screamed a lot and key smashed, but that doesn't really come across well. :)

Can't wait for the book either, but it'll be a while till I can get a copy.

Good luck on your quals!

haha, I recently figured out key smashing ... I would have gotten it :P

Thanks much! Hope you don't have to wait too long to get a copy of AMoL!
