Wheel of Time, Lan by dragoninstall Wheel of Time, Lan by dragoninstall
'Dem Power-wrought blades.
He's one of those characters that I think up multiple ways of how he could come off so here's one tangent of that.


he's like....Aragorn meets... Stephen Seagal ..meets ...
Predator...

....


-AND I NEVER SLEPT AGAIN.

This is just PERFECT. :D
I'm currently mastering a D&D campaign with my friends, setted in Ranland during WoT events and I was looking for some pictures to use as miniatures for the main NPGs. Your Lan is just perfect, I hope you don't mind if I use him. :D (Big Grin)

This is REALLY REALLY CLOSE to how I envision Lan [ al' Lan Mandragoran, Last Lord of the Seven Towers, the Uncrowned (King) of Malkier ] 
It's 'DAMN 'DAMN WELL DONE!!!!!!
Headbang! Headbang! "Bravo!!!!!" [ or "Brava!!!!" if you're female ]
"Encore!!!!!"Headbang! Headbang!

Great rendition of the color-shifting cloak, you managed to avoid classic army camouflage, which the mind snaps to all too easily

And he makes Aragon and all those other warrior fellows look like kids with sticks for swords.

Best Lan I've seen, although if I have to be picky he would never have the cloak resting on his sword-arm like that ;)

Lan is my favorite character in the whole time wheel books besides Nynaeve =) I like the way you have portrayed on Lan (working with drawing characters from the book) but could you tried to draw him in pencil? Whether you can or can not continue
PS I know people advise me to read something for my age (I'm 10) but I highly advise everyone to read the books!!!!!!

Sorry if anything is spelled wrong!

Thanks Yous

actually if you view it as a seperate image/in another window type right-click deal, depending on the color of your bg, the cloak is partially transparent !! SCIENCE! I wonder if anyone noticed that though, [;-;] ...

I like the Warder cloak. It's very much like I imagined it. Most people say it's a camouflage type cloak, but I disagree. How would they blend into stone walls?

It's pretty much described like the way the Predator's cloaking device worked if I remember.

Blood and Bloody ashes, man! That is exactly how I pictured him!

Now we just need to find the right voice for the film adaption.

What do you think of Keith David (the voice Golyath from Gargoyals) as Lan?
Reply
:icondragoninstall:
dragoninstall Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2012
Ah yeah That's pretty much him isn't it huh.

But Lan's voice could only be the one and only Steven Seagal, after meditating
for 4 years under a waterfall in the Himalayas. That's Lan.

...IMHO
Reply
:iconbusterread:
busterread Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2012
I have to disagree. Seagal dosn't have the pain of loss that Lan needs, along with that hint of bearly controled rage that Wrarders seem to have.
