WoT Girls by dem888 WoT Girls by dem888
Characters from The Wheel of Time series of books by Robert Jordan.

Left-right: Min, Birgitte, Moiraine, Tuon, Egwene, Nynaeve, Aviendha, Faile, Elayne


I started this one a long time ago. It's one of those pieces I couldn't seem to finish. I guess the sketch had too many flaws.
I have mixed feelings about it to say the least. After so many hours, I have a hard time staying objective, but I hope you guys like it more than I do! :)

Edit
For those of you who feel that the fashion choices of some of the characters seem a bit strange. - You are right. I took a lot of artistic liberties painting the dresses. Giving too many of them dresses like Disney princesses didn't appeal to me. Instead I tried, like in Egwene's case, to capture some of her wildness and fury and give her a dress that I felt suited her personality more.

It would be a perfect work, if it wasn't for Tuon, Aviendha and Elayne's faces imho.

My only complaint would be that Tuon is too tall. Apart from that I LOVE it!! The chracters really do shine through and I think you've done justice to them. Got to say that I think you've captured Birgitte perfectly. :D

I love this, but Egwene looks a bit more like a marvel superhero than I expected, though that said it fits her.

Lovely as usual!  My only complaint is the height on most of them.  Birgitte and Aviendha are supposed to be much taller, Elayne and Faile are average.  The others are ALL short, though Min's heels make up for her height.  Moiraine, Tuon, Egwene and Nynaeve have had it pointed out often how small they are.  Not fond of Egwene getting all the attention paid to her "wildness and fury"; Nynaeve was far more than Egwene ever was until the death of Gawyn and her battle with M'hael.

Still, it is a lovely piece.

What fun! I appreciate the artistic license you took with the outfits, so for once felt no need to nitpick as it was fairly obviously intentional :) It was some of the heights that my pickiness noticed - such as Moiraine and Eg appear too tall as they're both shorter than Ny in the books - but I can imagine such ridiculous attention to detail is irritating when you've clearly put a lot of work into it! I'd say the only fashion changes I dislike would be Elayne's Disney princess dress and how much pain Min's behind must be in ;)
Anyway, I love Eg's attitude, and the fall of Ny's dress. The surroundings are good too, very atmospheric and exciting. Also, how no one is wearing the same shade. Lastly, I'd like to congratulate you on the delicacy of Elayne's right hand placement - I remember hands being incredibly difficult, getting the proportions correct, so that impressed me.

I guessed them all but Egwene and Faile!  I thought Egwene was Lanfear to be honest, and never really visualized Faile in red.  But that's just me, I think you did an excellent job!

I will admit. I do have problems with this pic. Which you mostly talked about above so no need to really mention it. I do love this pic though, Egwene looks more badass in this pic then she actually was in the books(Not much of a egwene fan) You did her justice! I also love Brigitte! Your interpretation of her hit the mark right on in my opinion, She's 100% pure badass and she knows it! Okay. The other characters though.. Fashion meh.. Faces meh... I'm sure it's partly the fanboy/Book lover in me that has the issues but you know what you think is not quite with it because you drew it! And I AM glad you did btw.. I would hope one day you'd redo or make another like this.

Love this picture! Egwene looks awesome. (I totally thought Min wasn't wearing pants for a minute...)

You've obviously put a lot of work into this, and it shows. Though yeah, I do agree with those who are going ??? about the fashion choices. Some of the styles really don't work well in that they don't fit the practicality of the characters - You don't really want to work in the clothing, and a little of it feels too modernized? Like I could see someone dressed like Aviendha if I went outside when it was very warm and not bat an eyelash. 

I do applaud what you've done with Birgitte, though

Beautiful composition, even though I find the girls/women in WoT largely to be insufferable. :(

Otherwise very cool - like someone said, I can't even begin to imagine the amount of work that went into this - but I'm curious as to what Egwene's outfit is based on. It doesn't look like anything I remember reading about, and it's showing a scandalous amount of leg for Randland standards.

A most interesting and, in my opinion, well done piece of work.    They do not all match my mental pictures of the characters perfectly, but everyones mind differs on such things.
