Fortuona

Wheel of Time characters in the making

I have been obsessed with WOT for quite some time (hell, it takes time to get through all the books!) and now that I’m done I’ve started making some designs for the main characters - it still puzzles me that the series hasn’t been made into a TV show/movie/cartoon tbh.

Here’s the stages I went through drawing Tuon (or Fortuona, Empress of the Sanchean Empire and all-round kick ass):

Stage 1 - Hand drawn sketch and clean-up

Stage 2 - Colouring with Pantone

Stage 3 - Digital clean-up and colouring, all done with an Intuos tablet and Animate Pro

Hope you like it, there will be more to come! <3

I’ve been reading A Memory of Light slowly. I want to savor it. I’ve already laughed and cried and marveled at the lovely intricacy of the world. I am so enjoying the real interactions between the Seanchan and everybody else. I love Tuon, excuse me, Fortuona and the insights into their culture. I love Mat’s goddamn, here I go again, doing this lead a fight thing. I love that Perrin is becoming so confident in his abilities. I love that Egwene has turned out to be the strong, confident, thoughtful person and not let power go to her head. Nynaeve has just floored me this book. And Lan. I love you getting the spotlight. I could go on. I never want the book to end. I want to know what happens. I have a conundrum.


My housemates keep asking me if the Last Battle is still going on and hasn’t it been going on for like 600 pages and I go yes….this is more like the Last War.

When you saw me with a dagger in hand - as if to throw at you - you didn’t call for your guards. You didn’t fear I was here to kill you. You looked over your shoulder to see what I was aiming at. That’s the most loving gesture I think a man could receive from a woman. Unless you’d like to sit on my knee for a while…
