      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.

  1. Love the design of the Shard Spear!
  2. It's nice work! You know, the thing that's been hardest for me is figuring out how to make Kaladin looking like he's glowing. In the end, I pushed up his skin tones right into a glowing blue/white. I really need to do more experimentation with it, but I like that the glow is kinda subtle in yours. The book describes it as being something that could be missed during the daylight if he's not holding much, so that kinda works. Are you looking for more an artistic critique? Or feedback on faithfulness to the book?
  3. Thanks @MasterJack! Oh don't worry, you will. This stuff is my illustrative catharsis
  4. Just posted up a new gallery album with some Kaladin Fanart in it. I'm working on getting it up on my shop/website as well, but in the mean time: enjoy!
  5. From the album The Leap

    Threw it into Photoshop to make some final effects after first fixing his vest, unifying the shadows, adding in some wind-spren/Syll etc.
  6. From the album The Leap

    At this point it comes down to figuring out which problems I can live with and which I can't. It's never too late to start over on some element of the piece or another, but it gets harder the longer you go on.
  7. From the album The Leap

    I was struggling with Kaladin just looking like a blue man, so I decided to cheat a little, paint him in regular skin tones, then apply some effects to create the blue-white stormlight glow that I imagined on him.
  8. From the album The Leap

    Early attempts on Kaladin. I've got the parshendi just about rendered out here. I wish I had more rough versions of them. They were a fun progression in themselves.
  9. From the album The Leap

    Things are a bit rougher here. I did a bunch of line-work-y stuff, then moved on to roughing in the colors and values. I think I need to put together the Procreate screen captures that came from this and make a process video or something.
  10. From the album The Leap

    Early thumbnails. First part of the process. This only represents a part of all the thumb nailing that I actually did.
  11. From the album The Leap

    Brainstorming some parshendi armor ideas here. Trying to go for a more organic look.
  12. From the album The Leap

    testing out composition, value and color on this early comp.
  13. I really like your version of Gaz. I always imagined him a bit more paunchy. honestly. This is all fantastic work! Thanks for sharing!
  14. Absolutely love this! Incredible take on Shardplate. You mentioned earlier that you might share some of your process with us. Please, please, PLEASE do! I would love to see how you work your wonders!
  15. I would LOVE to see your process! this is incredible work dnavenom!!!
