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 :)

Lawls, I don't take offense. Due to indoctrination of anime and manga in my formative years it's very hard for me to turn off the androgynous male thing. Something to work on, I suppose. :D

This is wonderful! Best portraying of Kvothe I've ever seen. The eyes are marvelously done, there's much power in them. And I love the hair as well. If you want to paint someone else from the book, please pick Bast, he's just awesome :)

Late reply like woah, but thank you, it's very much appreciated. Bast is awesome. I think I'm going to reread the series (what there is of it at this point) again.

Thanks, there's so little Elodin art. I'm kind of scared of putting my version of Elodin up because I'm pretty sure it's a bit different than most people imagine. Does it ever really say how old he is?

donīt be, itīs always good to see someoneīs interpretation of a character.:) as the book doesnīt have more than a couple of official (cover) illustrations and no movies inspired on it yet, that gives a lot more food for imagination. I like it.:D
I donīt think so.:o but assuming that the first time he called the wind was when he was 14... I believe heīs no more than 25.

Yeah! I got the impression he was younger too, but I talked to some friends and they all thought he was some crazy middle aged guy. I was just like O_o?

I donīt think so. As old as the teachers in the university are, I donīt think any of them are much more than around 50 years old; and Elxa Dal was Elodin's teacher, so... :B
I am pretty sure he's like Kvothe himself: young, intelligent, and has already seen and done many things.:XD:

Like everyone has already noted, his hair is so flowy! I also love the eyes. :heart: They are definetly my favorite part of this. The light is really well done and the color is gorgeous. I seem to be always drawn to them even when I'm trying to look at different part of the picture. They are just so full of life.
His neck is too long though. I think it could be almost one centimeter shorter. His shoulders are quite thin too.

I'd love to see Elodin. I do love Bast but Elodin need more love.

His hair looks like a L'Oréal advertisement (just kidding XD). But it is cool too! :D
