      Oathbringer Spoiler Policy   11/13/2017

      Oathbringer is out! Let's make our policy on spoilers clear! 1. You must preface topics with Oathbringer spoilers with the prefix [OB] in the front 2. You are only allowed to post spoilers and spoiler topics in the Oathbringer Spoiler Board, Cosmere Theories, and some select work-related forums. 3. For posts in the Oathbringer Spoiler Board you do not need to use spoiler tags inside a topic marked [OB]. For Cosmere Theories, you also do not need to put spoiler tags inside your topic if the topic has [OB] in the title. However, for Cosmere Theories, if you are adding Oathbringer stuff to an old theory without the [OB] tag, those must go in spoiler tags and you must make it obvious outside the spoiler tag that the spoiler is regarding Oathbringer content. 4. For select things that do require talking about OB spoilers, in Events, Coppermind, and Arcanum forums, those are allowed but keep OB spoilers in spoiler tags 5. Avoid and minimize spoilers in topic titles--even though those two boards will not appear in the Recent Topics ticker, topic titles still appear in Recent Activity and the forum home.  6. You aren't allowed to post Oathbringer spoilers in places other than listed, even with spoiler tags.  It will be nine months and then the Oathbringer board will be re-merged with the Stormlight board and you will not need to tag these spoilers. If you'd like to move something in the Stormlight Archive board to the Oathbringer board, to update it with new Oathbringer information, Report the post and we will happily move it to the Oathbringer spoiler board. Part-by-part Reactions Though the Oathbringer Spoiler Board will be very spoilery, very fast (maybe don't come there until you've read the book, as people do have copies that bookstores sold early), you'll have these five topics for reactions if you want to nerd out: Part 1 Reactions
      Part 2 Reactions
      Part 3 Reactions
      Part 4 Reactions
      Full Book Reactions For parts 1-4, they will not include the interludes immediately following it. On Discord All Oathbringer spoilers on Discord will be exclusively in the #oathbringer_spoilers channel for the nine month spoiler period and nowhere else.

Parshendi Army

As I promised, here is a small part of the Parshendi warriors, from my point of view. There will be another version of this image soon, with another leading character.

Thank you! This was my hardest image yet. Too many of these guys there! I tried to make them as diverse as possible.

This is wonderful, I'm in love all over again! And there was I thinking that we would have to wait months before we got your next piece.

Allow me to echo @CaptainRyan's comment on your Shallan piece: if you ever decide to start selling prints of these, please let me know, I would also gladly pay you money for them. In any event, please keep making more art, I'm eager to see more, and you've truly cemented yourself as my favourite Cosmere related artist now.

Thank you Black I tried to be faster this time. I had the idea in my head and wanted to do it before the holidays. I`m glad I managed to make it, but the best thing is that you like it. I said before that after the good reception of Shallan I was a bit afraid of the reactions for the next image I make. I`m feeling a lot better now :)

Thank you! I`m glad you like my drawing. Just on thing, art is not something to be ashamed of, it just has early and late stages of development :) I love all the art in the forum, everyone has such a distinct style of work. You can never get bored :) So instead of shaming you, I prefer to inspire you, so you can create more art for us all!

Thank you guys! I`m not a fast painter actually, but I can make a gif of the process, if this will help :) There is another version of the Image and since I can`t decide which is better I`ll post them both, maybe next week I`ll be ready with it, at least I hope so!

WOW! Absolutely stunning. I gushed about your Shallan piece (one of my favorite cosmere pieces ever) and was hoping you'd post something else soon. And you did, and totally blew me away. This is incredible. Best take on the listeners that I've seen.

I love how much individuality each of the warriors has, and the power in their poses. The lighting gives the scene a sense of dread/awe/expectation that I love. Thank you so much for sharing with us! I can't wait to see the next version.

P.S. I hesitate to make any suggestions, since you've demonstrated that your artistic sensibilities far outstrip my own, but I would love to see your take on a sleepless.

Many thanks, this is exactly what I`ve tried to make the viewer feel! So I guess...Success! :) 

About my next drawing. I have this image in my head of the moment when Adolin drives the knife in Sadeas`s eye. For me, it was one of the most bad chull scenes ever. I always wanted to make it, with all the whispering in the face, sweat and intent to end this once and for all. We`ll see I might change my mind in the end, but still this scene stayed in my mind shining bright with sweet vengeance :) Not sure if I can execute it right thou. We`ll see.

FYI, I think the one thing that really makes this whole image work so well for me is the pose of the femalen listener on the left, with her chin raised. That attitude breaks up what could otherwise be a homogeneous group, draws the eye, and invites me to look more closely at the others. Without that little touch I probably would have thought "cool, that's pretty" instead of "Wow, this is INCREDIBLE." So well done!

Thank you, she`s my wife`s favorite Parshendi. She wanted to put her closer to the viewer, but the composition wasn`t that great. In any case I really tried to give each of them a uniques face, haircut :) and personality to some extend.
