That is beyond way freaking awesome!  I love it!
"The custom of royalty in referring to oneself is to naturally employ the royal 'we'.  We are very happy, we are very sad, we are bored and suffer from ennui.  For a royal prince there's no such word as 'me', It's always 'we'.  So rightfully I should be two or three, don't you agree?"

Nice indeed.  Well done!  I like the creepy look of it.

Did you ever see the 'fan art' piece I did of an Inquisitor.  (Can an author do fan art of his own work?)  I was trying to mock up something that would work as a nice wallpaper, but I was never satisfied with it.  Posted it here once, with an added "Warning, this didn't come out quite right."



In case you missed it, here's the wallpaper which actually DID turn out kind of cool:

I like the wheel that shows the Allomantic metals. If only it was in 1440x900... then I'd actually use it.

And it also reveals the 15th and 16th metals, so thanks for that Brandon. :D

Is it the hood?  I always envisioned the mistcloak to look somewhat like a cross between a trench coat, Tuxedo, and the robe worn by the main character in the game Assassins Creed.  The hood is a little Jedi-esque I might admit.
I thought that the mist-cloaks were silvery white... To blend into the mist. (I haven't read Mistborn 2 yet, perhaps brown ones come in later)

I really like all this fan art, it's all amazing!  The Kelsier blond thing through me for a loop, all of a sudden I realized that I was picturing everyone but ham with black hair, and I was all, that's odd, they all have black hair, then I realized Kelsier and Marsh have blond hair, and Yeden isn't completel bald, like he was in my head, it's funny how you ened up picturing things even if they aren't what you are told they look like.

I love looking at fanart. It always helps the character more real to have something to look at instead of what is just in your head. I wish I could draw like you people but its not one of my talents.Keep up the great work.

On a side note does any one know when Mr.Sanderson served in korea because my brother was there in 93-95 and went back to teach english .He met his wife there too.

I believe it was around 1996-1998.

This isn't the thread for off topic stuff.  If you want to discuess Brandon's time in Korea (which was '95-'97) please make a new thread.
Screw it, I'm buying crayons and paper. I can imagineer my own adventures! Wheeee!

Ooooooh.  Nice.  I always pictured the tatoos at red for some reason tho.  Blue just seems too nice, red is much more menacing.

I imagined them like the faded elaborate tattoos of a biker guy except more... pretty seems like a completely wrong word for it but... pretty.
So blues, reds, blacks, yellows, a whole bunch.

ummmmmmm ??? whats with the criticism? this is only MY interpretation of an obligator. If you feel he should look differently then perhaps  you should make your own.

Anubis, please don't react like this. They are only presenting their own interpretation and I don't see that they are against yours in no way. If you cannot take a little comment and you feel attack in your hability, maybe you should revise your judgment. Maybe You are not able to accept their interpretation.

In all cases, without any criticism, here is Brandon's description and that should conclude all interpretation.

Quote from: MB2, page 48
Like all Inquisitors, he wore intricate eye tatoos - mostly black, with one stark red line - that marked him as a high-ranking member of the Canton of Inquisition.

So, I guess colors indicate from which Canton your Inquisitor is. Black and red for the Canton of Inquisition... maybe red for the Canton of Finance or blue for the Canton of History.  ;D

Smile ! I love you all ! And by the way, Anubis, your intricate design is just perfect for me ! I love it ! Such fluidity and precision ! Remarquable !
