Howdy!  I'm giving a panel at Phoenix Comicon this year, and I was wondering if I could include this image in my prezi?  I would be happy to list your name or links for reference.  Let me know if this is okay :)  Here's a link to the presentation: prezi.com/vdujhku22-gb/?utm_ca…

I just finished up "The Way of Kings," and this is spot on incredible.  I think you really captured the place where Kaladin was in his life simply by his facial expression, and it is a wonderful interpretation of Syl as well.  I absolutely love this, can't say enough how awesome it really is.

They are so beautiful, I love how ethereal and childlike Syl is, compared to Kaladin's virile profile <3

I was looking at this again, and out of curiosity - were you channeling Jake Gyllenhaal for Kaladin?

Honor born from the wind. Is the dark cvapor meant to represent the storms.

Still Kaladin is the hightlight her. The detail the expression. The way he looks at her says a lot about either his character or the world. Though it looks like hehas blue eyes at first glance.

I imagined her more as a tiny being made of light, and so not really having any normal sort of coloring... But this is actually really good :) a lot better than the other ones I've seen of Syl and Kaladin...

I just finished reading The Way of Kings, and loved it! This picture is pretty much exactly how I pictured Syl and Kaladin! I'm simply blown away by the skill displayed within this image. This is amazing.
