Nice! something about the face reminds me of the actress who played Lucy in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
Your right. I really like the painitng though. It takes real skill to do things like that.
Nature's first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Really great, mking. I like her expression. But…is that lace around the ends of her sleeves?

Oh absolutely! It's nice to see someone's idea of Vin when she's not in the middle of a fight. It's very peaceful, almost sad.

Um, yeah. I didn't have it originally, but I wanted to put in a little nod to how she started to like wearing dresses after a while. And without it her shirt reminded me too much of a modern tank top.

Nice work! I feel like her outfit is a little lacking in accessories, though. A belt, a coinpouch, glass daggers in sheathes, or the stud earring that ultimately serves as a major plot point would all fit.

The shape of her feet is a little off, too. Check it against an anatomy reference to see how the top of the foot leads from the ankle into the toes. It's an easy fix in paint, you just need to carve in a little.

I really like her face and her blouse. The wing motif of the mistcloak works with the composition, though her hair could be a little more tousled to reflect her motion (she seems to be hovering, right now).

Do another!  ;D

I'm thinking you should use this as a study and do a 24x30 oil of the same image.  That would give you the oportunity to do the refining you mention without retracing the same ground.
You can always get what you want if you never count the cost.

That's the one thing that jarred for me [the lace]. And I also agree with Ink about the lack of accessories and stuff.

Otherwise, amazing job!  ;D

Alright, so I got bored and decided to make these.  If you want to use them, please save them (no hotlinking, pretty please.)  Also, if anyone asks, please give me credit.  They might not be that good, but I did work hard on them.

Also, if you want a specific quote, just pm me and I'll get to it.  I do plan on doing another set for Warbreaker that's some more complex quotes (read: animated gifs), as well as a set for the rest of the books.


Yes, I realize they're not that great, but really, I don't have a lot of skills.

Are those all from Sanderson books? I never realized that  Brandon was such a  quotable author.

I like those, but I think you might be trying too hard in the graphic design department. Keep it simple, minimize the use of different fonts, and don't allow the color schemes or textures to interfere with readability. Remember, the design is there to support the quote, not to steal the show.

You know, some of those would make pretty good T-shirts... I especially like numbers 4, 7, 8, 9, 10, 13 and 15. Put 'em in white text on a black shirt and I'd wear any one of 'em.

Pretty sweet, but I wish A) she didn't look slightly boyish in the face and II) he hadn't gone with the "mist-skirt" design. I swear, that's gonna haunt us for a while. Might as well start looking for a way to canonize it as a variant or something.

Thanks for the advise Ink!  And all of those except the first one are actually from Warbreaker.

I actually think those Vin pics look a bit, um . . . well basically I think her face (minus the hair) looks like a man's.  :-\

I have been working on a 3d version of Vin for a while its not complete yet still have a lot of things to fix (eyes, hair, hand etc) and I am doing a palace/fortress for the background but I thought I would share what I was up to. I was pretty peeved when I found out somebody else had already done one (but I started before his was posted so im not copying)

Get ready im about to highjack this thread ;D
So I have 'finished' my Mistborn project (still open to critiques) The images are the composite of Vin in front of a fortress/palace, Vin by herself and the palace by itself.







Thanks for looking
