Character reference sheet for the Kholins and friends. Now you see what a bore Dalinar is by forcing all the men to wear uniforms 24/7 24/5 when all the girls get to wear pretty dresses with jewels and braids. I originally thought the havah was an overly complicated, fussy dress but after drawing them multiple times in multiple designs I've come to like their elegance and visual sleekness.
Super large res for people who like collecting images or inspecting details:
And for those unrepentant self-indulgent people (sadly including me on occasion) who like this kind of stuff -
ALTERNATE UNIVERSE EDITION!!
Would AU Kaladin own the Bridge Four t-shirt and the slave brands beanie from the Sanderson store? Who knows.
And now you see why Shallan thinks all Alethi are huge. The Kholins' average height is higher than the national average in my country.
The more times I draw a character, the more they evolve as I get a firmer grasp of how the written description translates to a picture that evokes the character traits and impressions of their personality that stood out most to me. When a character doesn't have viewpoints then I have to rely on other characters' relationship with them, and the occasional physical description that only comes in a line at a time. Renarin and Navani are hard for me for this reason, Renarin especially since he just fades into the background. And I don't think there's even a description of Salinor's blade that Adolin won in a duel and gave to Renarin.
