This is fantastic! It looks like you are making a running comic or artbook series, which I would totally buy. That is amazing.

I know this is selfish, but I have a question. I am just about to launch my own YouTube series based in Brandon Sanderson's Cosmere. It's a project that I have proposed to Brandon and he gave me permission as well as giving me some incites in order to pull it off. I have been looking for art and artists who wish to be featured in my video. Obviously I would reference your work and website in the video, and I will not use any of your art without your express permission.

I hope you will consider this, and keep up the great work! I seriously love the style!

Jorden

PS If you want Brandon to see your work, I would send him an E-mail and link to your page through his website. brandonsanderson.com/contact/
You also should look for him when he does his book tours, he might appear closer to home than you think.

Thank you so much! I'll send you a link to the first video. I am planning on doing a long series, probably making episodes until the last Brandon Sanderson book. Is there a specific link to your art or a website that you would prefer I share? Thank you so much, just having art to showcase will make this project better and I hope mutually beneficial.

It's finally here! The first of many to come :) Here is the link: youtu.be/9T5Aw5rJ8nQ

Now I haven't used your work yet, I couldn't find a good place for it in this episode, but I will need it for sure so I'll link you the episode it appears in. For now though, I want you to see what this project is about and how it works. If you have any suggestions I would love hear them. Thank you once again, and I hope you continue to feel that these videos will be a good place to showcase your art!

Looking forward to your future works!

Ah this episode is awesome =) And may I ask for the permission to translate the content and make a subtitle? 'Cause I'm the admin of a Chinese Cosmere fan site and we'd like to present your videos on our site since they are so enlightening. We'll definitely add credits and link back to the original youtube page. If the answer is yes, do you happen to have a text version of your introduction? I figure that it'll be easier to translate =)

*SPOILER WARNING: DO NOT READ IF YOU DON'T WANT MILD TO SEVERE STORY SPOILAGE OF BOOKS 1 AND 2 OF "THE STORMLIGHT ARCHIVE SERIES." CONTINUE READING AT YOUR OWN RISK, I AM DEAD SERIOUS ABOUT THE SPOILAGE, IT WILL TURN ALL THE MILK IN YOUR REFRIGERATOR INTO COTTAGE CHEESE, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED*

I just finished listening to both of the current books on Audible. I love your take on the characters, very close to how I imagined most of them. I especially like your take on Dalinar and Navani, has to be the most cutest "Older couple" in literary history. Would also like to see your take on Jasnah as she was described at the end of book 2 Words of Radiance

P.S. I hope the warning was enough if someone runs across the post. I REALLY like the series thus far (Almost as much as Mistborn! Vin Rocks!), and really don't like spoiling things.

I look forward to you doing Words of Radiance, its good solid work, and the outfits are awesome, the only constructive feedback I have is the Dalinar is silver/gray at the temples.

You can win a leatherbound copy of The Way of Kings!

I have been a huge fan of Brandon Sanderson's for years and you have some of the best fan art from all his series. I particularly like your Stormlight Archive fan arts (Your drawings of Jasnah are great as I can never quite picture her well enough in my head despite being one of my favorite Sanderson characters, Kaladin is exactly how I pictured him, and I love how the uniforms resemble those from the anime and manga series Fullmetal Alchemist/Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. If you haven't seen/read it, you should-I already recommended it to Sanderson at a signing as I figured he'd love it.) Anyways, keep up the great work, hope to see more from you in the future, wish I had the same sort of talent! :)

Wow thank you so much!!! Yeah I love most of Sanderson's books, too, and Stormlight Archive is my favourite! (So this may explain why some of my SA fanarts look a bit better than others...) I'm so glad that you like my dipiction of Jasnah & Kaladin! Oh whoa yes I'm a big fan of Fullmetal Alchemist! I watched 03 & 09 versions of the anime series and enjoyed them, but I haven't read the comics yet. Right the uniforms are awesome! I got some inspirations from them when designing Kholin uniforms. Since my drawing skill is still far from the satisfying standard, I'll keep learning and practicing!

Yeah, I'm also very fond of Sanderson's books! Read Mistborn before TWoK, and it is wonderful and breath-taking!

Oh wow. They're all amazing! Szeth looks exactly as world-weary as I always imagined him.

Ugh the Way of Kings is so super amazing but all of my rants about it are spoilers :)

:iconbotanicaxu:
BotanicaXu Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah, drawing Szeth is the most interesting part of this!
Ah, spoilers...during reading I was washed away by spoilers when I checked something I didn't quite get it...but still the book itself is amazing!
