Thank you, this started out as just an experiment in combining the clothing, and it started to remind me of Rand. I was inspired to try it because of your great WOT artwork.  I love the books and have been wanting to do an epic "Battle of Dumai's Wells" scene ever since I read it.  I started doing these experiments to see if I could increase my skill level enough to pull it off.  This has me thinking I might be able to do it now.

Very cool effects. I will need to finish the series some day. Kind of lost steam during those slow bowl of winds books.

Thank you, this started out as just an experiment in combining the clothing, and it started to remind me of Rand.  I had the same problem with the books and skipped to the last two a few years ago.  I loved it so much I started a re-read(listen?) using the free audio books from my local library.  They bring a lot of life to the slog that the series seems to get in the later books.

It will be interesting to see what they do with the TV show in the works at Amazon. ;) (Wink)

What? No Mat or Perrin? :D I read the entire series. Got sad that Jordan passed before finishing. I wonder how the story would have altered. I know he outlined the very last chapter, but MAN! That guy could describe a spec & take 3 interesting paragraphs. LOL

LOVE the dragon effect on the sword & his hand. Great job on the character. Do you plan to do any more?

WOW! Did not know about the Amazon show. Makes me think about getting Prime. ;) Thanks for the info.

Was that the battle where the Reds were coming for Rand? I recall it, but it's been a long time & I gave my books to my sis-in-law to read.

Everything aside, your skill level has been here for awhile & you pulled it off spectacularly! :D

Thank you for your kind words of encouragement. I just re-read it about a month ago thinking about finally trying to create the image I always pictured in my head when I first read it.

It's the battle where the Aes Sedai have captured Rand and locked him in a box and are transporting him back to the tower.  Perrin leads the Two Rivers men, Cairhienin, Aiel spears and Winged Guards to charge down into the valley at the back of the Shaido forces coinciding with attack by wolves.  They start loosing and Mazrim Taim and a bunch of Asha'man show up and start laying waist to everything.  [ wot.wikia.com/wiki/Battle_of_D… ]

It's my favorite series, though it's very long and has some slow spots. I just started re-reading the series by listening to the audio books online from my local library.

Never read those, so at first I thought it was that wizard from earlier and his power along with youth had been restored along with magic as a new dragon was born :) Oh yeah, fantastic image! :D
