Name of the Wind - Sketches by Orcagirl2001 Name of the Wind - Sketches by Orcagirl2001
My sister is reading to me an awesome novel called "The Name of the Wind." We're about a quarter into this 600 page book, and it's really great!
From the first chapter I wanted to draw some illustrations for it, so I started doodling a couple characters. There's so much to go through!

Here I sketched the main character Kvothe on the bottom middle, a drawing I'm really proud of!
Bast on the right with the dark hair (terrible drawing *cough*) I'm sure he's much prettier.
And Cinder, a mysterious character who I won't give any details concerning. All I'll say is he's supposed to be icy looking because he's a man of frost? i think? O_o

Anywho, probably more will come from this book. I can't wait to hear the next chapter! Everyone should read this book! "The Name of the Wind" by Patrick Rothfuss. You can find him here on DA too :iconkvothe:

Well, I kinda should come back to this book...although I haven't read it in years. Need to read it again...

I really love how you did Cinder. You've really captured a cruel meanness in his features that I associate with this character. Well done!!

Oh, thank you. I was just so intrigued by him. This is old art, but I'm glad you like it!
I love how you drew them, especially Kvothe! Cinder is very appropriately creepy :)
Your style is awesome!!

Why thank you. I've always viewed Cinder as highly creepy, especially the way he spoke to young Kvothe. But his discription is intriguing. I mean, how does one look and sound like ice, or have a nightmare grin? I tried to bring it to life. Thanks for having a look!

You did a wonderful job bringing him to life... and he does remind me of ice the way you drew him, partly because of his white hair, and how his eyes are so sharp-looking.
Out of curiosity, how do you picture Master Elodin? Everybody seems to think something different about him.

Thank you! I haven't attempted Elodin yet. Although I really love his character. I guess I imagine him more of a slightly built man, average height and lanky, but his face...its hard. Someday I'll attempt it, but what I will include is a somewhat 'mad' look, because he's so smart he's nuts. That's what I love about him!
