    That's a pretty cool picture of, I presume, Moiraine and Lan, with Ishy in the background. Nicer than the current cover :rolleyes:

    Thanks! I kinda want a tattoo a bit like that, without the glowey stuff obviously ;)

    I'm glad that there wasn't already a thread :) Oh and the artist is Luis Royo...

    Lan's helm is way wrong. ^_^ Sorry I'm picky about things like that. Heh about 100 times better than the normal wot covers though. I laugh everytime I see the cover of Lord of Chaos or Crown of Swords.

    Great picture but I'm really picky about these things too. Lan has two swords! I don't recall any mention of him wearing armour (could be wrong though) or a beard. Mandarb looks the same size as Aldieb too. Where are their saddlebags?

    Still, I agree, much better than the cover art.

    But Mr.Gave Away Book 1, Lan has two swords, facial hair and platemail on the actual cover art too. So I'm assuming this person just got his information from that source. Kinda crazy that even on the book's actual cover art Lan is drawn up wrong, unless of course my theory is true and it's just that the warder's cloaks have strange effects on the book covers. ^^ And even pretending that is true it still doesn't forgive Rand for his cheesey posing. :)

    Hey thats pretty cool artwork right there. And about the armour thing, Lan wears armour in New Spring so maybe the artist just thought he could wear some there too. Pretty cool though, even if Ishamael doesn't look half as cool as he should.

    lol, But if I had muscles like Rand does on the cover, I can't say I wouldn't want to show them off every possible moment...:p

    You're biased though.


    I used to have muscles like Rand on the ACOS cover but my legs and neck were much bigger than his. And look how he's standing, what's he had stuck in an uncomfortable place? Anyone else notice that it looks like his right arm is massively more developed than his left? He'll need glasses..... :cool:

    And I don't think Lan plucks his eyebrows, wears mascara or lipstick either. And he's supposed to be nearly fifty, not 23. A LITTLE bit too strong on the Elvish influences methinks.

    Aviendha's a blond?

    Egwene, Nynaeve and Lanfear are triplets?

    "I am not going to make WOT doll for a while."

    THANK GOD

    "If you are interested in to have, feel free to ask me."

    That's ok thanks.

    "They are all one of a kind!"

    No kidding?

    "Please do not link to this page!"

    I can see why you wouldn't want people to see them but why post them on the Net then?

    Wow...those dolls :eek: let's just say most of them could use some work, especially the male dolls (without these dolls who would've guessed that all the males in WoT enjoy wearing makeup and sculpting their eyebrows :rolleyes: ). Perhaps she doesn't want anyone to link to her page because then someone who has actually read the books might see the dolls and notice all the things wrong with them. And about the picture I agree that it's much better than the actual eotw cover but isn't Lan supposed to carry his sword at his hip instead of on his back (I know this is on the actual cover too).

    OMG. Somebody gouge out my minds eye. :eek:

    I never pictured Rand looking like barbie or Mat as a drag queen. The women aren't quite as bad except Liandrin looks like a slut. (forgive the language)

    The person can't be a good WOT fan. They refer to using the Source as 'magic' and misspelled ajah more than once. :rolleyes:
