For quite a while I've wanted to create a drawing of Kvothe from Patrick Rothfuss' Kingkiller Chronicles. I want to use this summer as an opportunity to simply create what ever I feel like for fun. Not for class, and with no time restraints. I put a lot of thought into how I wanted to try to portray Kvothe: a portrait, a scene? I decided to use his entrance line "my name is Kvothe... you may have heard of me". He summarizes various myths and legends about himself in the "...". I decided to create a piece that was a portrait, but also had a scene. I thought about choosing a scene from the book, but decided against it. Instead, he is walking into a dark forest, looking back at you, while the blue flame of the Chandrian shines between the trees. I'm using colored pencil, and so far I have been working on his head, and outlining the lettering.
Some other interpretations of Kvothe...
