Above the storm by TigRaidoXXX Above the storm by TigRaidoXXX
Kaladin Lashed himself to the side, jerking out of the way. He swiped with his Blade, but didn’t come close to connecting. “I should have practiced more with the sword,” he muttered.
Oh. That’s right. You probably want me to be a spear, don’t you?
The weapon fuzzed to mist, then elongated and grew into the shape of a silvery spear, with glowing, swirling glyphs along the sharpened sides of the spearhead.
Szeth twisted in the air, Lashing himself back into a hovering position. He looked at the spear, then seemed to tremble. “No. Truthless. I am Truthless. No questions.”
Stormlight streaming from his mouth, Szeth threw his head back and screamed; a futile, human sound that dissipated in the infinite expanse of sky.
Beneath them, thunder rumbled and the clouds shivered with color.

From Brandon Sanderson's "Words of Radiance".
When fighting Kaladin, Szeth discovers that Knights Radiant have truly returned to the world, and the new Desolation is approaching. That means that everything he was told before was a lie - and all the awful deeds he has done were for nothing.


That was a long run... I started it in summer, and did a lot of drawing and redrawing since then. My friend said, that it was storming Kaladin I was working on, and this had to be awesome. =) She helped me with the post-affects, also - the stormlight and the smoke - and gave a whole lot of rational advice and critique along the way. Thank you, sweetheart, this wouldn't be half as good without you!

This might be the first time I've see Kaladin holding his Shard Spear! This is awesome, such an amazing fight to read... and I love the color play with the red and blue accents between them.

So I’m TheBlueShifting, a YouTuber who does a specialized Cosmere video series called “Letters from the Cosmere” After getting permission from Brandon Sanderson to create this series, I started writing letters from the character Elsric to his fellow explorers about the various topics and events that he witnesses during his travels. During the videos, I have had the honor of showcasing wonderful artistic works of characters, landscapes, and even musical compositions of other Cosmere creators. I do my best to showcase these works in the best way and with links back to each of the creators. I also refuse to use any art without receiving permission directly from the artist first.

 

I would like to feature your Cosmere art in my future videos. If you are willing, I would like to find places for “Above the Storm” as well as your other Cosmere themed art, as long as you approve. If you would like to see what the series is like, here is a link to the first video in the series: www.youtube.com/watch?v=9T5Aw5…

 

I hope to hear from you soon. Keep making the Cosmere fantastic!

Hi there!
Of course, I will feel honored if you do so.
And I believe, that your activity brings more attention to a great story setting, so keep going =) Cosmere is magnificent!

P.S. The video seems like a really interesting idea, I will definitely watch the whole of it later, and share it with my Cosmere-obsessed friend too :)

Also are you okay with me using your other Cosmere related works? It sounds like you don't mind, but I want to be sure...

Of course, same for all other (including future) works =) Not that I have many, as of now...
Also, I believe, that you include authors' names in some kind of credits in your videos?

Now that sounded like an interesting series owo! Is it your original work?
All those wind and magick effects you got going on is really great. Even though the 'mist' effects I can tell that weapon has some lovely details to it <3
The anatomy and attire, all of it is just wow, this is my favorite thing I've seen in a long time <3
I am in love with those magick wind effects <3<3

The picture is mine, the scene and characters belong to Brandon Sanderson's "Stromlight Archive" series (btw, I totally recommend it =) It's awesome! He's definitely in my top 5 favourite writers =) )
And thanks for commenting on the magic effects - me and my friend have spent a lot of time to make them perfect! And the clothes and the weapons too - she kicked me really hard to look for reference, and she was right to do so :D (Big Grin)

Really well done. I knew it was Szeth and Kaladin from the thumbnail image and title. I really enjoy the colours and how you portray Szeth's pain.
