I liked how you worked the metal symbols into the lettering.  Very cool.

That's really good. Kudos.

P.S. What's your real name? I posted your work on my fan group and I would like to give credit where it's due.

Couple roughs for a Terris steward, based on Sazed in particular.



I try, as always to use the passages from the book as the basis. In my paperback edition (2nd MM, I believe) that I'm currently marking up with visual reference notes, Vin meets Sazed on pgs 154/155.

"Sazed had a long, flat face and a willowy body. He was even taller than Kelsier -tall enough to be a bit abnormal- and his arms were unusually long".

 "His earlobes had been stretched out, and the ears themselves contained studs that ran around their perimeter. He wore the lavish, colorful robes of a Terris steward -the garments were made of embroidered, overlapping V shapes, alternating among the three colors of his master's house".

I'm punking out on the embroidery for the moment 'case this is a rough. Someone in the main forum reminded me that  Sazed, at least,  shaves his head. I'm fairly certain I remember references to sandals. I put a lot of metal on him, in the form of various bracelets, bands, torcs and rings. I think I might have made up the spectacles and the hood on the robes. Anything else I'm missing out on?

Great job as always Ink!

I think this is the first time I'm seeing a visual of a Terrisman and I'm liking it.  :)

Two thumbs up.

Hey, nice! I definitely remember Sazed wearing glasses when he was storing up sight in a tinmind, but I don't think he normally wears them.

Very nice!

I seem to recall that the robes were studded with metal as well, which I don't see in your drawings. Also, I recall from reading an annotation that parts of Sazed's appearance, such as the unnaturally long limbs, are characteristics common to all eunuchs. So, keep that in mind when drawing terriswomen. ;)

Also–I think Sazed had "bracers" on his upper arms.

Thanks, all!

I didn't do anything with upper arm bracers because the robes here conceal them. I didn't read anything in the passages I've marked so far about metal on his robes, but I'll keep an eye out for it. Of course, he changes outfits during the course of the story a few times.

There's racial characteristics and their fashion characteristics... long arms, stretched lobes and abnormal height are the racial characteristics common to all Terris (I think). Everything else is specific to being a steward and a Feruchemist.

Feel free to help me with my reference research. I've got a thread running for just that, and I've got a lot of Mistborn stuff to find reference for.

Unfortunately, I loaned all my Mistborn books to my sister, and I think I've just about exhausted the well of my memory for details on Sazed's appearance. :(
