He looks awesome! I think the illustrations on the covers of the books always make him and the others look much too old. They're all around 20 years old, and most of the time on the books they look in their late 30s, early 40s .-.
Anyways, really love this!

I've been scrolling through about 50 pieces of fan art of Rand, and this piece has the best clothing by far. Loving the facial expression and jawline.

Oh? This is a reference sketch, crasy good, nice shading! I <3 your style, the hard edges make the lines seem almost precise to each angle, as if curves are an illusion in this form. Again you excel on tone and shading, I'm constantly referencing your shading for pointers; great job!

Wonderful Art! Your detail is is so ... detail. I love those hands, you just want to reach into your paper and touch them. The wrinkles and folds in your clothing are nicely done. They are not so over exaggerated. The look in his eyes is hypnotic. What else can I say? I love it. Great work. Keep on amazing us.

The detail in this pencil sketch is gorgeous, though, as a costume, I do geek out about such things!

thegambler101 Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2010
these are very good i am a long time wot fan and these are just about how i pictured them. you should try to draw the other characters. Also check out dem888 drawing of the last battle its also very good.
Mokumegane Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Nice detailing! It looks like you actually drew a real person! I wonder what you would draw for other fantasy series...
blindBraille Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2010
Yeah, now this is rand al'thor. Great job!

Very impressive. I love the beauty of his clothing and his expression is piercing.
shifthigher Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2010
Your character drawings have captured the fullness of each of the ta'veren. In this picture I perceive that Rand has accepted his fate, and his eyes show intense determination and a bit of desperation.
fellentierll Featured By Owner May 28, 2010
love it! Just finished re-reading book 12, can't wait for the next one!
Fighterpunk Featured By Owner May 3, 2010

One the best al'thors i have seen. :D
FalineDrake Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2009
This is really great! I am also a WOT fan, and I can say that this is pretty close to what I have imagined. I especially like his detailed clothing and hands. But maybe his eyes are abit too big? That's of course a matter of your own style... so it doens't matter, I personally would've done them little smaller. Anyway, I like like this one very much. Maybe I should see your whole gallery now!

Robert Jordan died before i started reading the books :tears:.
But he is a god of fantasy. :bow:
Im up to the th book and lovin it.
This is an amasing drawing, exellent shading and perfect design for your view of the character.
Very Well done
lolaspoon Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2009
Man i love WOT.
This is great fan art man you should be proud.
GlassGlobeFlower Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2009
This is amazing! Love it! :D
mollyscarface Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2009
This is an AMAZING representation of Rand! Absolutely brilliant! The hair is a bit dark, but I don't even know why I'm commenting on that because it's a b&w drawing, and his hair is a dark red anyway. Spectacular! I'm only on Book 2 of the series right now, so this is a great point of reference as far as picturing Rand when I read. There isn't ONE part of this I would change!
Shaded-Mirage Featured By Owner May 31, 2009
I saw this a long time ago on photobook and wondered for the longest time who did the picture. Good greif you are good.

NinjaGoron Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2009
this is so awesome. best rand I've seen.
JennyeBrooke Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2009
YES! THIS is what he's supposed to look like! This is amazing! You're the first fan art I've seen that's made him how I imagined.... Everyone draws him so hard and ugly... and I know he is hard and cold but he's sexy... if he weren't he wouldn't have three girls in love with him! >.<

Thank you so much for this lol

excellent. The dragons on his arms are wycked. He truly looks like the way i imagined him
Altaeyyr Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2009  Student Digital Artist
WoT rules! And so does Robert Jordan! *worships* Wonderful, bravo! Just like I thought he would look. You've even got the herons. Just a curious question, will you do the other characters? Like Egwene and Min. That would be good.
Shmelanna Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2009  Student
nice details
GhostStorm Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2009   Traditional Artist
wow that looks really really good. but he kinda reminds me of Christian Kane
googoolini Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2009
hands down the best image of Rand I've ever seen. you've even included the branded heron on his palm... wow.
solitarium Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
u noticed his palm! :) hehe... thank you..
googoolini Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2009
oh yes. and it looks painful indeed...
FallingIntoInfinity Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2008   Digital Artist
Awesome, awesome picture of Rand! I've not seen too many decent pictures of him, but this one ranks very highly. I love it that you included the dragons on his arms, a feature most artists either forget about or are too afraid to attempt.
Yunyin Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2008  Student Digital Artist
This is beautiful, I love the clearness in the design and the amount of detail!
