Myrddraal by BloodRedFullMoon Myrddraal by BloodRedFullMoon
>>Full Viel, please, or you'll regret it ^^<<
(And pray that you screen resolution is high enough ^^)

This started out as a quickpainting, but I kinda got lost along the way ... it's still pretty rough, though, and the hint of a background's just there cause I didn't want to leave it completely black ... If you wonder why his face is that brightly lit and the rest of him is dark, I dunno ... maybe he's looking into a lamp or something ^^ And since he's a Myrddraal, his cloak is as dark as the night anyways, so whatever ^^

To those of you who don't know what a Myrddraal is, you should REALLY look into the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan (may he rest in Peace).

I don't really know how I got the idea of blood coming out of his mouth, but I thought it'd look kinda cool, so ... meh.
And looking at it now, some days later, I think my interpretation of a Myrddraal is actually a weird mix between a Stargate Atlantis Wraith and the Mouth of Sauron from the 3rd LotR movie .... xD

You mean the ones that make the fades' weapons?
Yeah, I think they were made of stone. Been a while since I read that particular part though, so I'm not sure.
I totally have to do a complete re-read before A Memory Of Light ...
just gotta finish all of Brandon's books first ... o.O
yeah they made me think of a stone golem the forgers can't go to far from shayol ghul or they turn to dust. I Always wanted to see some art done of them.
If that wouldn't Scare the S out of you if it came at you in the night then nothing would.

Best Depiction of A myrddraal I've seen Great work.
