These drawings are based on characters created by Robert Jordan, George R.R. Martin, and other storytellers.
I've attempted to capture the personality of each character while remaining true to their literary description.

As the Dragon Reborn
, he is doomed to go mad and kill a lot of people. Also, he has
cool markings on his arms, and he keeps in shape by fighting six opponents at once.
The only problem is that he has to pay people to fight him.

The Battle at Falme

Rand and his arch-enemy, Ishamael

war-torn coastal penninsula known as Toman Head
(the quarterstaff and a few other things are drawn inaccurately).
General Bashere, to Rand: "I guess being ta'veren
isn't all cheese and ale."
Lews Therin Telamon
is the original Dragon, and is now a disembodied voice inside Rand's head.
Because he's been dead for three thousand years, and he was, after all, a political leader, I picture
him as looking sort of like an ancient Roman.

Moiraine: "Tonight you will eat fish. Tomorrow, you may die."
Elayne Trakand is the Daughter-Heir of
Andor, and something of a spoiled brat, although she shows
promise as an Aes Sedai. She is also deeply in love with Rand.
Elayne: "Sisters don't bond the same man because of custom,
Rand, because they don't want to share him, not because it can't be done."

Nynaeve: "I do not have to make sense."
