Wow, thanks for all the kind words! I hope to find more time to paint this week, but work is getting pretty crazy (the speedpainting may have to get speedier). I'm thinking about doing another character piece, just to take another crack at drawing a face. I'm still disappointed at how Kelsier's likeness worked out, so I've been picking my work apart trying to figure out what to do differently on the next character.

Those are amazing MKing.  That really is all there is to say about them.  I would definitely like to see more.

MKing, those PS painting are gorgeous. You have inspired me to try my hand at a mistborn drawing.

Uhh... I freehanded this on my friend's face on Halloween morning. He wasn't willing to shave off his hairs, though, so I apologize for slight inaccuracies plot-wise. (Does this even count as fan art? I'm too lazy to create a thread for fan anti-art, so you'd better make room. Or I will cry.)

I am aware that mking puts my work to shame, but I just wanted to share. If I ever get around to taking pictures of my mistcloak, I'll upload them as well.

*shrug* This is where I've been posting my cos-plays, so I think it counts.

And those are pretty cool looking.  I'd love to see your mistcloak.

mking, that's flipping amazing.

BTW, if you're having trouble drawing Kels face, perhaps painting him from behind, looking over the wall of Luthadel would do.  I have a really bad sketch of one of my characters from behind and I think it looks pretty cool.  (He doesn't have a Mistcloak, though...)

I enjoy seeing everyone's art, costumes, tattoos -- you name it. We've all been inspired by the characters, settings, and stories enough to want to create something. I think it's really cool to see all the different ways to express ourselves.

Ok. Here's a painting of Vin that I knocked out in a couple of hours. Actually I probably spent more like 10 hours total, but I scrapped almost the entire thing because it was getting overworked and Vin was starting to look too old and too much like a man. Sigh. Sometimes paintings can get away from me and I get lost in the details instead of looking at the overall image.

Anyway, so I basically started over after lunch today and laid down a much stronger foundation. In order to save some time, I cheated and re-used my Luthadel painting for the background. This originally started as a picture of Vin in her white gown from the ball at Keep Lekal from the first book. I originally had a simple colored background, but then I decided to put her high above the city to make it a little more dramatic.

Amazing as usual! The face is great, although something about the neck and back proportions seems off.

And yes the placement of her above the city is very dramatic.

 your work is just. so. beautiful.

Thanks. You know, the more I look at it, the more her head looks too big for her body.

Doh.

Yet another thing to watch out for on the next painting.

Amazing as usual! The face is great, although something about the neck and back proportions seems off.

Gorgeous! I think the background works really well. I like how you included the infamous earring.

Wow, that's amazing.  I think you pretty much captured the way I pictured Vin.  I would just make the earing a bit bigger, and a bit more bronze in color.  (Just my two cents)

mking get out of my head. Not only did you capture Luthandel exactly as I picyured it but now you have done the same with Vin. Really well done. I agree thet her head is slightly too large but over all this is a great painting.

Amazing picture.   The face looks recognizable though and it took me a bit to figure out who it reminds me of.   Ashley Judd.   Unfortunately Ashley's eyebrows are a bit bigger and she tends to smile a heck of a lot so its hard to get a good comparitive.   Here is one of my more favorites that I did find.   The angle is just about right too.

I don't think her head is too big at all. I think her body/back is just a little bit too small.  ;)

Shadowkiller - you are right. There is definitely a resemblance to that picture of Ashley Judd. Now that the association is in my head it will probably stick. I wouldn't be surprised if I think of a grown up Vin every time I see Ashley Judd from now on.  ;D
