This is amazing! I love when book fan art is this similar to what I was imagining myself.

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:…

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?
Westeros11 Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2013
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.
originalninjajesus Featured By Owner May 28, 2013
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.
ArcaneMonkey Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013
this is a great piece, but I have to ask, where's his brand?
JaimieK Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2013  Hobbyist
Oh, this is perfect. Kaladin looks spot-on how I imagine him. Syl is beautiful and intriguing!

This epic moment from the epic story deserves an epic picture like this! I'm totaly in love with your version of this scene!
BigJDL Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013
Exactly how I picture Kaladin. the man needs a beard

Fantastic. The Man himself linked you on his Facebook page.

Aw, I love these guys. They have such a quirky relationship.

F**** Brilliant!
mooseman222 Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012
I feel like Kaladin's sort of thinking "Welp, this windspren can talk. Guess I'm nuts now."
Bnofreeride Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012
No words to explain how good this is... Amazing? Awesome? Stunning? I can't come up with a good adjective.
Nambread Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012  Student Digital Artist
You've just been shared by Mr. Sanderson himself on FB, amazing painting though, I can see why.
Sabriel782 Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012
Amazing!!! This is just perfect.
GinaLTurner Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2012  Professional General Artist
I am an artist and I cannot even find the words to describe just how FANTASTICALLY STUNNING your artwork is!!! I am just drooling over how you've brought these characters to life!! By far, some of the best art I've ever seen.
iliveforapples Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2012
this is such an awesome interpretation! i imagined kaladin younger but syl looks absolutely mystical and steals my attention :D
thuvia Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I love this! Syl look awesome!
balearic Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2012
awesome interpretation of Kaladin and Syl. He looks determined just like he does in the book. She's always turning in to a woman's form when she appears near his shoulders. Thank you for this. My favorite book as well.
Nozomi-Yuri-Tenchi Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Epic. Simply epic.

Excellent! but isn't Syl supposed to be a being of light
Sylkyn Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2012
i've read the book twice already, can't wait for the next one, this is an awesome rendition of Kal and syl i love it.
Diennea Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2012
Awesome art for an awesome book! So hard to find something good about a new series :(
Keep up the great work!
Lifeless-ordinary Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2012
great job! kaladin and syl are two of my favorite characters (i'm only half way through the first book so far )
SpectorKnight Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2012
Awesome work on this. Kaladin looks a little older then I pictured him, but he's a very mature guy despite his age, so I guess this works. Syl looks great. I love the colours too. Excellent work on the whole piece! :)
hisdarkdesire Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2012
YES. Finally someone has done this idea. I loved this scene and you portrayed it perfected. Syl looks perfect and Kaladin looks so rugged and confused and angry, its perfect!

THis is beautiful, I don't know the book, but the concept could be applied to so many things, it really stands alone as an artwork. Love the watercolour effect you've achieved with digital art, and the way the shape/figure of the fairy compliments the curves of the man's face.
sariahsue Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2011
This makes me want to read the book. Again. (I've read it twice already, and I have other things to do!) Hands down the best fan art I've seen for Way of Kings, or Sanderson in general. He needs more fan art.
BeibhinnC Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Umm...Can I just say that this is my favorite fanart for WoK EEEVVVEEEERRR!!!!


Kaladin looks JUST like I'd always imagined him...Oh, this has made me so happy! Mind if I use it as a wallpaper on my laptop? I just wanna look at it more!
Elvive Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2011
Awesome stuff, I just finished the book and went on a hunt for some fan art. The mood is lovely here :)
joppe33 Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2011
im enjoying this book atm and i love this one!
Hisakata-Tsubasa Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2011
Very nice. I really like the look on Kaladin's face. It's kind of a mix between "What the heck?!" and "Hmm... interesting."
EilisAngelos Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2011
There is a lack of beautiful fan art for Brandon Sanderson's work. This is now my desktop at work. Thank you for this!
