Elodin - Name Of The Wind by reversenorm Elodin - Name Of The Wind by reversenorm
This was done for an entry into a T-shirt design for "The Name Of the Wind" by Patrick Rothfuss. This is my rendition of the character Elodin. I had a hard time getting the right age, still not quite satisfied but I hit the deadline so it was time to stop.

Elodin is absolutely my favourite.
I think his hair should be a bit more gray, but it's great work anyway.

THANK YOU
When I was reading the book I had trouble getting the right Edolin in my head because I couldn't get the right aging in the face.
THIS IS IT!

I like the picture, you know. That position and expression really feats Elodin.
But maybe it should be younger to look more like him.

"Kvothe, stop grabbing at my tits!"
The best line in any work of fiction. Period.

I love this picture, no matter if it is Elodin or not.

Have you noticed that Elodin is the hardest to draw out of them? It suits the way Rothfuss wrote him, now doesn't it? You can never get him pinned down properly...

Does he have blondish hair? I always pictured him w/ dark hair. I hate it when I get a mental image of a character that is nothing like the description!

The text doesn't specifically mention his hair color just that it was nondescript. I chose to go for that kind of mousy blondish/grayish hair that a lot of people have but it's not wrong to think of his hair as browner than I depicted here.
