A lot of people have made requests for more Wheel of Time fan art, so I thought I do some more. If you haven't read the books, they are great, read them!

This is not a scene described in any of the books, I just felt like drawing the ta'veren ready for the last battle.

A big thanks to all of you in :iconthe-wheel-of-time: who helped me with getting the details right!

Hope you like it!


Wow! My first DD! Thank you! :D

The suggester says: "In my opinion, this artist has done an amazing job portraying the characters from Robert Jordan's much loved, Wheel of Time series. They clearly went to great effort to capture every little detail, making this one of the best and most accurate depictions I've seen yet." ( Suggested by SweetYuya and Featured by alexandrasalas )

Hey, can you make this into print/a poster? I need me one of them
Caramoore Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2017
This is such a well done piece! I'm so glad you are still getting hits on it 7 years or so later! I know I've even seen it on a few Tee shirts.

I love this so much more than any of the art they put on the books.

Rand's sword is so well done. I really love the banners too. :) (Smile) Heart

Wow! Just amazing! This is exactly how I picture them!

For some reason, this picture reminds me of the Ebonheart Pact from Bethesda's Elder Scrolls series. Is that weird?
GenericMastermindAnt Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2015
This is awesome, however IIRC Rand is taller than that, to the extent that most everyone but the Aiel are up to shoulder height on him.

This is just.... words cannot capture it. Extremely well done. I wish this was available as a print.

I have to say it.. Robert Jordan would have been proud! Simply epic. Wish I could have seen this image before reading the book!

I have been looking for a Wheel of time Weapon Mod for skyrim... I couldnt find one so I am attempting to make one, I would like to use your versions of Callendor, Mah'alleinir and Ashandarei. Is there any chance you could re make them so I could use them as textures/ blueprints. If you are willing I need a side and front shot of each and a top for Mah'alleinir.

Topefr Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2013
I love it! Did you do the playlist up on Youtube? I neeeeeed them! XD
Zeneus Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2013
Your depiction of Rand is just... perfect! Mat and Perrin look amazing too, but Rand! Just... wow!
silwyth77 Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2013
this is amazing should be official without a single doubt

i also would like to get a version of the girls... pretty please ? ^^
HarleyWing Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2013
I'm am ridiculously impressed with this piece of art! Its the most accurate representation of Rand, Mat, and Perrin that I've seen yet! Now, whenever I picture them, they look like this. 
Omega21487 Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2013
Damn shame that this isn't just a little bit bigger (doesn't stretch well unfortunately), or i'd happily make it my desktop wallpaper and show it off to friends. A very nice work regardless
Rabbiteen Featured By Owner May 1, 2013
Seriously one the best WoT fanarts I've ever seen!, 1000 praises

I love this picture, and I can't believe it never occured to me before how all three have their own banner. Derp. :D
RTShields Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I love this! I sadly found a version with a 4th man in leather chaps holding a rainbow banner, but I'm grateful to have found the original! I would like to ask if I could use to this piece for the cover for the audiobook edition I'm currently compiling, it just fits!

This is the most amazing piece of art I've seen of the characters of the books I love so much. You've done a great job!
Azophel Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2012  Hobbyist
By far the most accurate depictions of those three characters I've found on the Internet. You captured their costumes, weapons, and personalities so well, it's hard to imagine them looking any different. Rand's face is quite possibly the highlight for me, since so few images depict him the way I imagine him looking.

Now we need a decent image of the girls to go with this...

Is there a way to vote this for WoT AMoL cover? Because this is plain awesome!
Jeff2beyoung Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2012
You should contact Brandon Sanderson and see if you can't get this made into a Ebook cover. Your more then worthy to have your art featured as Memory Of Light Book Cover.
DeborahBeeuwkes Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Wow. Seriously very much cool! I adore the hammer and the sword and the spear, and the characters are very well drawn!:D Totally conveys their different personalities <3.
