I stand corrected about japan. however one morning where I live there was a lot of smoke in the air because of bushfires and the sun turned red so I stand by my statement

Yep, the sun in the Mistborn books is indeed red, a product of the ash.

The reason the sun on many Japanese articles is red is because it is "the land of the rising sun"  when the sun is rising it can look red no matter where you are.

As my friends and I are creating a Mistborn online community, I had decided to try my hand at a Steel Inquisitor, eventually using it for something within our site.

I wish people would stop drawing Inquisitors with their mouths open and teeth bared.  I mean, it has been suggested that they are cannibals who draw their strength from other people's flesh, but until this idea is proven, I don't see why they're always pictured like ravening beasts.

Probably because if someone is making that picture as a portrait, there is no real "action".  I happen to like pictures of heroes and villains with teeth barred, ready for something to happen.  That is just my personal observation.

I guess I'd say, if you want action, do the whole body in an action scene.  Portraits are like still life - they're not supposed to be active.  Anyway, I don't picture heros or villains going into battle looking like they're trying to bite each other.

I picture Inquisitors as being more sinister  in a quiet, controlled way that makes you shudder when you look at them.  I don't think they go into battle yelling and screaming; they just casually deal with the opponent while maintaining their composure.  They're like Myrdraal, completely terrifying because of their enormous power which everyone knows is hidden beneath their calm exterior.  I picture Inquisitors pretty much the way Inkthinker portrays them (replies #183, 238, 243, 244 in this thread).

Koloss, on the other hand, are more like Trollocs; they're savage beasts with low intelligence, a low degree of civilization, and very low controlability.  They kill for the joy of killing with no planning or strategy or consideration of the consequences.  You can draw their teeth all you want and I won't object.

Anyway, my opinion is by no means definitive, but there it is if you want it.

Funny, I always pictured Inquisitors as perpetually enraged.

Agreed, for some reason I pictured them as pissed off all the time. But thats just what I thought.

I always imagined them as more uptight and drone-like.
