al'Lan Mandragoran, King of Malkier by ReddEra al'Lan Mandragoran, King of Malkier by ReddEra

"Tai'shar Malkier!!!"
al'Lan Mandragoran, King of Malkier, Warder and husband,  Lord of the seven towers, the Lord of the lakes, real blade of the malkier, aan' allein, King without crown. Here he comes to wreck some Trollocs.

*FULL IMAGE AND MORE ON PATREON www.patreon.com/arielburgess
He will be for sale on canvas, framed, and signed at JordanCon. Ta'veren Tees will also be selling posters of him and Moiraine. www.taverentees.com/

See the other transition posters and my Officially licensed Wheel of Time art here reddera.deviantart.com/gallery…

The transition poster series is of the characters from beginning to end with lots of symbolism about that character. His left side is Lan at the beginning of the series with the Hadori and a Tar Valon Mark for Moiraine and the Right side is King
Mandragoran with a lock of his wife's braid, the bloody armor of Bao the Wylde, a king's armor with the golden crane on it and the crown the Dragon had made for him. Behind him is the seven towers broken then repaired, the blight and the healed Malkier, and the blackthorn flower and vines for Nynaeve.

You should do the covers for the books! I was so upset when I realized the original TOR ones weren't correct with a lot of the details!! Stunning work!

Thank you! I would have loved to. I am trying to do more book covers though, for other series. My art is in TOR's Wheel of Time companion as well.

haha maybe he just matches your mental image well. I looked at about 15 different actors. There's a breakdown of my references on my Patreon. Thanks for checking him out

Maybe. Or he looks like an illustration of one of the characters I've seen from the Wheel of Time series. His appearance is just ringing a bell. That's all I'm saying.

Why does this guy remind me of the elf king from the Lord of the Rings?

"The Last King of Malkier" rides to his destiny at Tarwin's gap. But he does not ride alone. 

Hoist the Golden Crane. May all who follow know that they march for the memory and hope of Malkier. 

FOR THE SEVEN TOWERS!!

Thank you! Glad you like it. That was such an awesome scene, Nynaeve rallying for him.

I actually wasn't referring to the recruitment speeches Nynaeve gave. I guess I did accidentally. I was just making up a few lines encompassing Lan and his journey.
