Kaladin Stormblessed by Chillalord Kaladin Stormblessed by Chillalord
This took long... Longer than ever before, actually ;D

Stupid figures, I suck at them. Turns out I can still make them look decent if I spend enough time on them.

Anyways, was inspired by the book "The Way of Kings". Go read it, now ;P

"Kaladin spun into them, a living storm of steel, wood, and determination."

Wow this is incredible! Can you imagine trying to fight someone like Kaladin? I mean that would be one of the most terrifying things to see coming at you...

I hope you don't mind if I ask you a question. I am a YouTuber and a big fan of Brandon Sanderson. I actually sat down with him recently and worked out an idea to make a YouTube series based on his books where I break down the elements of the different worlds and how they are connected. I am looking for art to feature in the episodes including landscapes and scenes from the books. This is a fantastic example and your other works are amazing as well. I would like to seek your permission to use your art in the video. I will naturally credit you and direct anyone who views the video to a website of your preference. I won't use this unless you approve. 

This is so cool, and I look forward to see what else you put together!

So I have to thank you, more than any other artist I have worked with. Thank you so much for letting me use your art in my project. As you will see, I leaned on you more than I thought I would. But your fantastic landscapes were so perfect for many of the depicted scenes. Without your works I don't think the continuity of the episode would have worked. Here is the link so you can see the episode: youtu.be/9T5Aw5rJ8nQ

I hope this is okay, I really was impressed with all the fantastic works you have made. This particular work (the one that I'm posting in) Is amazing, and has a place in a coming episode. I hope this project is to your liking, and that you are excited to see your art featured in many future episodes. If you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to tell me what you think. I am so grateful for your support for this project. 

Hope to hear from you soon!

I believe Kaladin does glow, as it states on the book, but slight less light emanates from him, from my point of view, because on his final battle of the book no one seems to notice the stormlight, spieling over

I agree with you the storm light's brightness seems to be a little exaggerated compared to the book, but it still looks great :3

I'm in awe with this image. In The Way of Kings, I always imagined the leaking storm light as rather slight and subdued in presence, but now looking at this image and rethinking the times when Kaladin and Szeth were using their abilities, I see this as much more apt portrayal than I have here to for previously imagined and like it all the more.

All in all, fantastic work. Additionally, even if only on this one particular point, I feel as if you have increased the level of enjoyment I have gotten and will continue to get from the Stormlight Archive series; which has already been fairly significant for me. So, as such, I greatly thank you for your effort in making this, and your willingness to share it.

Yeah, I actually forgot ;D I always go on autopilot when I paint so sometimes I forget to do things I had in mind.

Can't wait till fall though. I hope the next book's gonna be as good...

You should check out The Departure by Neal Asher if you ever run out of books to read. By the way I like the glow. Would be awesome to see it reflect off of the surrounding crowds armor.

Thanks for the tip, gotta keep that in mind.

And yes, I thought of that too but as I'm so incompetent at human figures, it was really hard to pull off. Ended up scrapping it :(

Someday, when I don't suck as much ;D

I know how you feel, anatomy books are great for reference if you don't already have one. And at least you can draw a figure, all you gotta do now is get faster right? :)

True ;) Just have to keep at it if I want to improve. I already got a book on anatomy but the whole subject has felt so daunting, and so i kept pushing it off :S
