At first I drew these characters mainly for an online fantasy magazine because they kind of let me (as translator of WoR) introduce Stormlight and the whole Cosmere series in their New Year issue, which meant I’d better add some festival stuff. So here it is - Characters from eight different Shardworlds wishing you a Happy New Year!

In China, this is a popular traditional gesture when people give New Year’s greetings. It’s called 作揖 (zuò yī, in spoken language: zuō yī). When you do this, you make a bow with hands folded in front of you and greet others at the same time. Raise your folded hands and then lower them. The motion can be repeated several times. For men, they should use their left hand to cover their right hand (In ancient China, men tended to hold weapon with their right hand, so they covered it when saluting, to reduce hostility and show respect.), while for women, they should do it otherwise and it’s better not to clench the left hand into a fist (You can learn this from the picture above.). If you do it wrong, you will convey some ominous meaning. Please be careful ;)

Heck, so many tags! Also seriously, I think we may need a Cosmere crossover art album :D

If you count Syl, that's actually 10 characters. :P

I like that Sylphrena you have. Do you happen to have that one as a separate one? )That I could possibly use as a profile picture . . . ?)

Khriss looks like she is cracking her knuckles and getting ready to kick some major rear!

Vin scares me a lot ... Maybe because She seems innocent and frail.... but we all knows what she can do.
