Absolutely perfect. I'm on the last book right now. This has to be the best collection of WOT art I have ever seen.

Thank you so much! I try my best. Team Jordan always makes sure I'm as accurate as possible too. There will be more WoT art coming from me soon ;)

You can use this image as long as it is credited to me as the artist and Ta'veren Tees as the producers.
Would you like one with out the watermark?

"M'hael" in the old tounge translates into "Leader". In the Lews Therin's madness speach, its "KILL HIM! KILL HIM BEFORE HE BETRAYS US!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" I think that Lews Therein's madness speach is more accurate.

Mazrim Taim is SO my favourite character. Unfortunately everyone will know he'll totally die in the last book.

yeah, I'm sure at least a few fan favorites will bite it in the end. :(
Hopefully he at least goes out like a bamf

Also known as "If Steven Seagal could channel."

You've done some great work on this collection! It's nice to come across such fine artwork for the series.

I came across your work here because I was at a buddy's place talking about it. He just got back from a deployment and needed something new to read, and I started talking about Wheel of Time. I looked it up on deviantART to show him, and your stuff was absolutely perfect in selling the pitch to him, so I have to thank you!

wow! That is really amazing. I hope there were not too many spoilers.
That is a very touching compliment.
I have a hard time getting my friends to read the series because it is so hard to describe, there is just so much to the story.
So it is nice to know that my art helped you. I think I have just about all of the major characters in the gallery so if he has trouble with a description he can find an image there. Just don't look too close for spoilers sake :)

Haha, yeah I looked through them and showed him which ones to look so he wouldn't bump into any spoilers.

I can't imagine how any of your friends would have difficulty becoming intrigued by WoT with a friend like you who makes such great art of it! Keep up the great work.

Well you're a good friend :D

Many of my friends have short attention spans.
But when they actually get into the series they are hooked.

Very dangerous-looking. He always seemed like one creepy bugger to me. I like how he's sort of good looking, but not in a typical sense. I suppose that's where 'darkly handsome' might come into it. He looks rather imperious too.

Thank you. Yes, I do not like him. I swear he is evil, just need more evidence

For ages I thought he was a Forsaken in disguise and I was like "why is Logain the only one who seems to notice how evil and creepy this guy is?!" Now I'm certain he's the real Taim, but the Black Ajah did the whole circle-of-thirteen thing to convert him to the Shadow.

I never thought of that but now it makes total sense. They always talk about that happening but we have not met characters that have been forced over like that. Now I'm convinced too

His dragons should be in silver and blue. Is it the lighting that makes them look golden? Aside from that, awesome picture, as well as the rest of them. Looking forward to buying those cards ;p

Thank you for your comment. Taims's Dragons are gold and blue :)

also I asked Harriet. (Jordan's Wife) She has to approve all of these cards before they can go to print.

Whoa, I've always thought they were silver. Can't believe I've made such a mistake. Apologies.

I don't know, I think he could pass for thirty-five (which is the age he appears in the books, due to male slowing). Nice attention to detail with the tilted eyes and high cheekbones, but I expected a much deeper complexion as he's described as having a 'dark face', although in my head Borderlanders are generally pale - made more sense to me due to the climate - but those from southern Saldaea are next to Arad Doman, populated by Arabian-style people. Still not what I would call dark, but now I'm just thinking out loud... ;)

I want those dragons that around his sleeves *.* They're awesome! Color and shape is perfect!
As for Taim himself, same problem as with Osangar - I thought Taim was younger or more hawk-ish. Maybe it's his hair that are problem for me.
BUT THOSE DRAGONS!!! xD

Thank you and the only thing I like here is the Dragons. :) Also Taim is actually in his mid-thirties but looks a little younger
