Cinder from Patrick Rothfuss’ Kingkiller Chronicles.

I’ve been wanting to paint this character and others from these books for a while. If you haven’t read them yet you are doing a serious disservice to yourself.

Only way to top this is to include the sword of winter ice. Fantastic.

Hey man this is the most amazing Kingkiller fanart I have seen out there, I really really really want to see your other interpretations of some of the characters from the Books (Kvothe, Haliax, Elodin, Auri, Bast) too many to chose from. I really hope you take the time to actually deliver more epic art (again, this is mindboglingly perfect) and I am seriously looking forward to seeing your versions (this is literally how I imagine Cinder now btw xD )

Still one of my favorite artworks ever since I saw it on that blue tinted platform of misery. The fact that it´s a fanart for the Kingkiller Chronicles is extra brownie points... Or do you want brownies? fuck points XP

I haven't read Kingkiller chronicles yet, but from the look on his face i can tell he is a genius who takes pleasure in seeing the world burn before him, and messing shit up from behind the scenes.

I don't know who Cinder is, but this painting is fabulously creepy.
