WOT -card teasers Gawyn by ReddEra WOT -card teasers Gawyn by ReddEra
Lord Gawyn of House Trakand
Art by Ariel Burgess

There...his cloak is green and a warder cloak. He has symbols of his house and status around if you look, and also on his tunic. Changed his face completely from the line art. I did not like it before.

I will be posting cards of my choice to post for teasers.
These are three from the Wheel of Time card deck that I am making.

The watermark is just in case I end up using this in an official deck.
let me know what you all think.

Thank you!
I think both are attractive but I did not make Galad as hot as I wanted. Attractive people can be very difficult to do. So I want to see if I can make a better version of Galad

There is a possibility of that in the near future, keep an eye on the In Memory of Robert Jordan page I have, I am slowly revealing a BIG project for WoT
Here is a link to that page www.facebook.com/pages/In-Memo…

Wow, I really like this :) his face is perfect <3 , though a touch to dark for me (but hey, its a book, so there's no set colours or anything).
The only thing that you might be able to improve is the armour. There isn't as much detail as I've seen in your other Card Teasers (one of the reasons I love them so!!!), but chainmail/linked armour can be a pain to draw.
aww, I always liked Gawyn, even when he was completely blind (with reason) about Rand. I love both!!!

Thank you.
Actually he started out paler but I duplicated his face and it got darker. I thought it worked since he seems to be out in the sun a lot.
About the armor, I had pretty much finished him and had this decorative tunic when my brother (also a reader of the series) came in and insisted that he have chain-mail. which I had run out of time so I spent a minimal effort creating it. So that explains that, you have a good eye.
I was always on the fence about Gawyn but I don't hate him like many people seem to. I think that this painting made me like him more though

Oh.. I never thought that he might have a tan... makes sense!
Funnily enough, I never really hated him. I got SO frustrated with him, but most of the time he was okay :). I reckon drawing/painting a character
Aw, it's a shame about the armour, I'd love to sew the final version if you had more time :)
I'm looking forward to seeing more art from you :P

Thank you and I did too. But he saved Egwene so I was cool with him.
About the armour, if I get time at the end I may go through all of the characters and do touch ups.
also, Suian and Gareth are coming soon

I'd say that's as close as I'll ever get to seeing a good visual image of the Gawyn I've had in my head since Eye of the World - hair is perfect.

Ok... That's what I got when I don't read authors note... Sorry for that "it looks like one that Warders have". I tend to do that....

He looks good and definitely NOT like drug-addict ;) Especially I like his cloak - it looks like one that Warders have. He's more mature that I ever imagined him but I like it.
Although... don't you think that Elayne has some brother-complex? :D Rand and Gawyn are very similiar in looks.

well, as a redhead I think in a story it is a good choice for a main character because it stands out. in some cultures red hair stands for great power and magic. because it is actually a rare thing I think it makes the character unique. plus its pretty

Says red-head :D
Yup, red-heads stands out - maybe not now when it just takes some paint and you have every color you wish, but natural red is rare and pretty.
I still prefer black ;) Maybe because I'm black-haired...

:iconreddera:
ReddEra Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Yes, I was talking about natural red, because fake redheads don't count. :D
well, when It comes to men I am smitten with black hair.
I think Raven hair, real raven hair is hard to find. It is very exotic and beautiful.

mroczna888 Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2011
Yup... Raven-haired guys... Eh, maybe that's why I like Galad more than Gawyn and I love Darlin xD And I'm really happy that most of good WOT men are black-haired, although that ones that are my beloved (Gareth, Lan) are black-with-grey which is sooo hot! :)

Yes I like that too, its has always been a weakness of mine. Hence why my boyfriend has long black hair...which he recently cut. but I still like it. I love those characters too

Great!
I imagined him a bit more fair-complexioned, but still, otherwise very good!
