Dragon Reborn - Rand Al'thor ( Work in Progress) by endave Dragon Reborn - Rand Al'thor ( Work in Progress) by endave
Update: I finally got some time this weekend to work on this painting. I think I am done with the base painting....just need to color it. Let me know if there something you guys want to be different or fixed. No references were used for any part of the painting...I kept working on the faces until they looked like how I imagined the characters. I think Meryl Streep as Cadsuane is a really good character pick, however I always pictured her a little more older and sterner looking.

Characters: Min Farshaw, Rand Al'thor and Cadsuane

Another Wheel of Time fan art. Took a little break since I have been so busy with work. Anyways...sneak peak for my watchers. I will be periodically updating this deviation with my progression.

Thank you very much! I actually think it is one of the worst paintings I have come up with this year, but I guess it can be salvaged in the future. Just lost interest in it now :(

Good job again! I like how you colored the monochrome painting, somehow I always screw this step when I start with grayscale :D

Thanks a lot! I lost my values during the process and ended up messing it up :( I don't like the way it turned out...especially with their faces seeming too thin. Oh well...guess I need to start learning how to paint directly in color.

Really nice! Love the crown! Looking forward to the finished piece. Min and Rand are two of my favourites, next to Nyneave and Mat. :D

Interesting, so you start in grayscale as well and then use overlay to color?

I go both color and gray scale, but I prefer starting in grayscale because I have more control over values and don't have to worry about colors until later. I usually use a bunch of different layers to add colors. I use the soft light layer initially for a dull base and then I create another softlight layer to enrich the colors some more. After that it is a mix of overlay, multiple and normal layers depending on what I want.

I started Winters Heart and so far I have been pretty engrossed. Hope it stays at the current pace and interest. Book 8 was a chore to get through even though I was listening on audio :(

book 9 is good, book 10 is - in terms of pacing and development - the worst of all and after that...it gets REALLY good! ;)
