  1. On a whim earlier today, I decided to see what might happen if I fed the opening lines of the prologue of WoK into a bot and watched what it came up with. Bizarrely, it seemed to have some idea of what the Stormlight Archive is, who some of the major characters are, and even concepts like bridge crews, lighteyes, spren, etc. It also managed to be marginally coherent, at least until the character limit ran out. Of course, being a bot, it has no idea of the context of anything, and so ended up producing a twisted funhouse mirror version of WoK where Kaladin and Bridge Four are trying to build a bridge under the not-so-watchful eye of a nameless king, while Kaladin is apparently pretending to be Sadeas's son for some completely inexplicable reason. Oh, and Szeth may be the Dragon Reborn, but I'm not entirely sure on that. The text I gave it was, of course, "Szeth-son-son-Vallano, Truthless of Shinovar, wore white on the day he was to kill a king." The bot I used was here:https://app.inferkit.com/demo As for the "story" itself, behold behind the cut! And yes, I know it cuts off in mid-sentence. That's part of the charm;).

    I realized I had never posted this here! Keep an eye out for this volume 2 of TWOK leatherbound

    Ayyy!!! I’m back with another Syl for u guys.(jk I’m not famous and I don’t have any friends) also she’s wearing gloves.
  4. From the album Bean’s Art

    It’s not the best… but it’s the thought that counts!
  5. ChickenPlague suggested this...so I did it. Well, he suggested tell pattern pony. I did the Syl Breezie of my own volition
  6. From the album Doodles of Roshar

  7. This is one of the crossovers I always want to do =) Other recent stuff Have some Kaladin blushing moments (in my own style): Two states of Kaladin: The OT3: Shadolin: Renarin: Kalak in WoK Prelude:
  8. Kaladin falling into his depression, the darkness, while reaching out to Syl in a panic :)
  9. From the album Stormlight Characters

    This started out as Vin, but then I decided it looked more like Spensa from Skyward. Then, as I drew Spensa, I decided that it was Syl. Now, it is Syl in her classic, simple dress.
  10. I have had this theory for a long time now that Cultivation cultivated Syl as a part of her gambit. But listen to me for once. This might sound crazy but might make sense in a minute. I guess we can all agree that Syl is different from most of the honorspren. She is just too jovial and lighthearted than most honorspren we have seen. Well... also Rua, but that's probably due to his bond with the Lopen. Then I reread the part in Oathbringer when Kaladin returns to Hearthstone. Another pure voice. Pure being the keyword here. I'm certain that spren can hear the Rhythms of Roshar. And the tones of the three Shards are described to be the pure tones of Roshar in RoW. Honor is dead. Why would Odium bother Syl? It is Cultivation's voice. Like tapped crystal. Dalinar described Cultivation's voice to be like 'tumbling stones'. Tapped crystal. Tumbling stone. Maybe I'm overthinking, but both of these voices are of Cultivation. What else did she do? Probably kept Syl sleeping for that millennium. I mean, we can't take the explanation to be Syl's mind being childish. That... doesn't sound Brando's style to me. 'Cause there is only her. Only her. A single spren slept for a thousand years after breaking her bond. Coincidence? I think not. Why? The bigger question is why. Ok now. Hear me. There is too much in my head that I can't remember now or can't explain. But here is my theory. Kaladin is the 'Son of Tanavast'. The successor of Tanavast (refer to this WoB). And Cultivaton wants him alive. Syl is mostly the reason Kal is alive. And that's why we love her. In Book 5, Dalinar loses the contest of champions. Yet, somehow, he will be able to reforge Honor. Instead of bearing the Shard himself, he gives it to Kaladin because now he is bound to serve Odium. And Kal ascends to Honor. I don't have much to support this other than: Kal's first chapter being 'Honor is Dead'. Kal saying 'Honor is Dead'. Cultivation only influences people who will somehow be related to godhood. And Dalinar being too obvious a choice for Honor.
  11. We know that ishar is try to give Spren for a way to give Spren bodies that can survive in the physical. And we know that he is looking for honor Spren to experiment on. And Kaliden is sent to look for ishar. Dose this sound like a chekhov's gun to you or am I over thinking it?
  12. As crabs, obviously. In celebration of Rhythm of War and the many crustaceans on Roshar. I may add color later, unsure if I want this to just be a quick drawing or if I want to put real effort in.
  13. Hey yall I took a bunch of the artwork of much more talented people and some music from another of those people and put it together to try to tell Kaladin’s story from the first 2 books of the Stormlight archive. Hope you like it!

    Syl is THE cutest being on Roshar.

    This is my design for Syl. I based her hair off of a cloud, because I think it makes her silhouette stand out and it also ties her to the Stormfather, and by extension of that, Honor. I'll post a ref later of her expressions because I like the idea of the cloud changing with her mood.

    Here's a version of my Syl design that shows her glow off. I'm not super into this version, but i feel it's necessary with her.
  18. So I have developed a small theory to explain a small peculiarity in Stormlight. First however we must explain what I am discussing is. For those unaware during WoR part 2 in chapter 74 pg 326 UK edition the Stormfather calls Kaladin "Child of Tanavast" rather than his usual "Child of Honour". This could at first be interpreted as a typo or continuity error but we also have this accompanying WoB: So we do know there is some significance to this phrase. Here I'm going to propose a small theory as to why that is. Now I don't think there truly is a deep significance to the phrase, I think rather it's a small detail which just informs us of the Stormfathers personality and view of the world more than anything. Most important to this theory though is the Nahel Bond which joins you together at the soul. See I think this messes up with the Stormfathers perception of Kaladin and Syl and as a consequence how we read the conversation. I don't think he's actually calling Kaladin "Child of Tanavast" but Syl that. Due to this bond though he is talking to them both at the same time and as such it looks like he called Kaladin that. Before I get into that though we must cover something else. Tanavast and Honour are two separate things. Tanavast was the holder and Honour the Shard. This is highly important to understanding what's happening here. There is a distinction to be made here and I think it's one the Stormfather is making. Tanavast created Spren himself but after his death Spren are made by other Spren. When the Stormfather says Child of Tanavast I belief he is saying someone who Tanavast himself helped create while Child of Honour is someone made from the Shard but without any guiding hand. Now some my guess that I will say Syl is a Child of Tanavast and see the obvious flaw. Tanavast didn't make Syl the Stormfather did. However I think the term still applies because Tanavast was still alive then. From the Stormfathers perspective he still helped create those Spren. Tanavast was still alive when the Recreance happened. He was still alive when Syl was made meaning he helped guide her creation. Syl is a child of Tanavast. Now from the Stormfathers perspective I think he is both talking to Syl and Kaladin. We get the scene from Kaladins point of view though and as such it all seems like he is speaking to him. Let's just have a look at what he says to each of them under this theory: Under this reading I think it makes sense he's actually talking to Syl. What he's actually saying also makes sense in this context. Not only that but it does seem like a distinction the Stormfather would make. He seems generally upset with humanity after Tanavast's death and making a distinction between Children of Tanavast and Honour is the same in principle but merely extended to Spren this time. This is the only instance of him using Child of Tanavast. So all in all I think based on our current evidence this is the most likely meaning behind the phrase.

    Syl as a spear.

  21. In the beginning of TWoK Syl dances "to some unheard rythm". Could this be one of the rythms that the singers attune to, the sound of Roshar?
