Kredik Shaw by Somnicide Kredik Shaw by Somnicide
Vin gazing upon the monstrous palace of Kredik Shaw through the ashfalls. More Sanderson fan art. I had originally planned to do Vasher next, but I was having some issues with getting his design right. Might reread Warbreaker before I tackle that one. So I went with Mistborn, my introduction to Sanderson and his fantastic worlds. This one was more of a quickie, much faster than Dalinars. It started as speedpaint practice, but I developed it further. Its not often I do much architecture in my pieces, which is painfully obvious. Something to work on in the future.

I love the colours enad shadowing (is that the word?). I especially like the effect made by the mix of mist, ash and dark sky, with that red horizon emerging... beautiful. And really impressive, with little Vin just another shadow in the dark, it reminds me of what I felt reading the books, especially the ending of the first one, with a little young girl who suddenly becomes aware of being the only one who can face the evil in the world.

Whoa, this is gorgeous! Love the color scheme in this. Sorta pictured the fortress as more irregular and spiny, but this looks great, and I really love how you did the mist.
