Kvothe - Kingkiller by Xledia Kvothe - Kingkiller by Xledia
This is a portrait based on Patrick Rofthuss's "Name of the Wind" series, (IT'S GREAT YOU SHOULD READ IT). But, if you are on this page you probably already have. Anyways, this is supposed to be Kvothe during his University days. His hair was a bitch! But hey, I'm still learning. Like, really still learning... SO! tell me what you think! Except about the background, (or lack there-of) because I'm not really ready to tackle backgrounds yet. :D
I'm thinking of painting another character from the book, but I can't decide between Bast and Elodin. Ideas?

Ok you should defiantly draw Elodin, i tried to draw elodin in the room he blew a whole through. And for Kvothe i think you did a great job on the hair, but he has smooth female features, and from the time he spent in tarbean i feel he would have a more weathered look, second is the Lute. I haven't finished the book but unless he gets a new lute his lute was in pretty bad shape, and i don't think there are that many strings on a lute. But all that being said i think you did an amazing job! And i do love the originality you put in it and kind of made it your own. And i think you should do Elodin AND Bast :)
