Lews Therin by Daystar-Art Lews Therin by Daystar-Art
My work is not to be downloaded, copied, uploaded on other sites, changed and/or used in any way without my explicit written permission!

"A Memory of Light" is going out in twelve days, on Januar 8th. For those who don't know, this will be the fourteenth and last book of the HUGE fantasy series "The Wheel of Time" - a series I love.

This piece is inspired by the prologue of the very first book, read it here (don't be afraid to download, I'm the author of this document and the file stash is safe :) )

Quite different than the majority of my works, and I do like the outcome, a lot!


AWESOME STOCK:

I really love the pose in this, i think it really brings out exactly how Lews Therin must have been feeling. However, i think the light should be whiter, and his clothes should be different. Looks too modern. Otherwise, really great!

It's a heart-wrenching image, and I can definitely imagine LTT dropping to his knees in this posture after exiting the Gateway. You can feel the grief and agony pouring out from him.

Now for the nit-picky: it states, very specifically, that he shouted to the sky "Light forgive me" as he pulled the bolt of Saidin upon himself. So this could be a precursor to that moment: he collapsed, then got up and screamed at the sky...

Yes, that irks me the most. I couldn't find a stock image, though :(
But once I get to know my new tablet I intend to draw Lews. Totally love his character, and I have this feeling I didn't capture his grief well enough here.

Thanks a lot for the feedback :huggle:
