Fan Art Tuesday: Pen Astridge

Check out this awesome fan art by Pen Astridge.

She explains:
“It’s not an overly complex style, really it’s just figure photography with some photoshop work.
“Basically it’s piecing together different nendoroids (which is the name for these particular chibi style of figures) to look as close to the cover character as possible. Then I pose them and photograph them. Finally I photoshop them onto a background to complete the cover art. And that’s what I call them, ‘Cover Art’ kind of like a cover/remake of a song but of a cover of a book instead. So really it’s a cover cover.”

Fan Art Tuesday: Mario Fernandes

Artist Mario Fernandes has some amazing drawings of characters from The Night Angel Trilogy and The Lightbringer Series. You can go HERE to see his depictions of Vi Sovari, Andross Guile, Ironfist, and more.

Mario notes: “Brent Weeks’s writing takes me on a journey so vivid, populated with such compelling characters that I can’t help but explore it further through drawing.”

If you’d like to see more of their designs you can check out the website for KustomKontrollers (which does the airbrushing) HERE or like their Facebook page HERE, and you can find Modded Controllers UK’s Facebook page HERE.

Small disclaimer: These aren’t official Night Angel designs: no money or licensing has changed hands. I just consider this a great fan project and thought you all would like to see their creativity and talent!

Fan Art: The Lightbringer Series

by CAPSLOCK
Fan artist Chris Z. has put together some great illustrations over on the fan forum page, and he’s agreed to let us share them here (click to see larger versions). If you’d like to see more fan art, go HERE.

Fan Art (or Tattoos!) Round-up

Do you have some Lightbringer or Night Angel fan art  or tattoos you’d like to share? Have you been hoping to show off your drawings of Teia? The Color Prince? Or are you eager to show off your ka’kari tattoo/real ka’kari*?

If so, we’ll be doing a fan art and tattoo roundup on the website. We have  a few entries already and would love some more!

Send your original artwork to CAPSLOCK @ brentweeks.com (no spaces) by Monday, July 8th at 5pm Pacific Standard Time. We’ll be sharing the fan art over the next month (thanks to Peter V. Brett for the great idea).

In addition, one fan artist at random will receive a free signed copy of the new Black Prism trade paperback, due out July 23rd, and we’ll also be giving away whatever assorted goodies we can come up with.

*If you have a real ka’kari, I’m still in the market for silver, brown, blue, and green.

Amazing Night Angel Art

Just wanted to share some awesome art I commissioned from the talented Nicholas Stohlman for the Weeks family Christmas cards this year. Now that the bulk of those have hopefully arrived *cough, cough*, I can’t hold off sharing any longer.
