Vin by lhazar Vin by lhazar
Vin, from the Mistborn Series, by Brandon Sanderson.

I simply love this character. A great example of a wonderful fantasy tale with a brilliant main character, challenging many dusty archetypes in the genre. She kicks ass!

Hope you like!

Nice work! Some details are off, but I think you're in the right place.

One thing threw me though, Vin appears to only have three fingers on each hand? The right hand could get a pass 'cause the little finger might be hidden around the curve, but the left hand is pretty egregious.

Oh, and personally I think this art style would look really good for a Kandra. I don't know why, I think because it has a slight cartoon look but not quite? Or maybe it's the movement. .. Anyways, I like it.

Thanks for the suggestion! That "cartoon but not quite" is exactly what I went for, so if at least someone noticed it, I feel accomplished. I felt the story was very energetic, and could welcome a change of art direction from what I had seen before (I think almost all covers of the book feature very realistic illustrations)

Only one objection, she has metal buckles on her legs, and she never wears metal. Other than that, this is the most accurate depiction of her I ever saw. Great work!

When I read this comment, all I could say was "D'oh!"

It's so, so very true. Let's say.. it was very polished.. plastic? Haha. It's too late to make a correction now :/

Thank you very much!

Polished plastic it is :). Or lacquered wood. It's a great piece of art nevertheless.

Love the mist cloak, haven't seen any fan arts that truly depicted the cloak correctly before this.

This is gorgeous. The best Vin I've ever seen, and the closest to my mental image of her. Amazing work.

Brandon just posted this on his Facebook page, by the way. Congrats!

The sad reality of deviantART is that fan art will nearly always get more comments and favorites than original pieces. I've been here ten years, and it's never changed in that respect.

Your work is stunning, and you deserve all the attention you get. I hope some of it spreads to your other creations.

You should do more! If possible, branch into some of his other works too. Love the detail in this, great job!

Elantris is a really great novel of his, and I'd definitely recommend it when you have the time. I have a couple of his other books, but I haven't gotten around to reading them yet. Mistborn is by far my favorite.

You should do a picture of TenSoon. We don't have enough art with him around.

Kandras are amazing! Or lhazar could draw Breeze and/or Allrianne they are my favourite couple right behind Vin and Elend.

HimeFlye Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2014
Really? Allrianne annoyed me a little in book two, but I got to like her in book three. We really don't have that much fanart of anyone outside Elend, Vin and Kell. Occasionally I see a Sazed or Spook that I like, but that's about it. Fanfiction . net is eve worse, most of the characters don't even have their own categories.

Yes, really. :D

It's a shame but every fanart is appreaciated even if it is fanart of the main character. :)
