This is incredible! Perfectly matches my imagination of the scene. I'd love to use it as my desktop wallpaper.. is there any possibility of you uploading or sending me a higher resolution? Thanks in advance, and again.. wonderful work!

Great work man.... Do you sell any of your pieces? I would love one of these. Message me on how I can get one.

Do you mind if I repost this to another forum? Cause I am playing a quest (a from of RP that where a single character is controlled by a bunch and what they do is determined by votes). One of the pontenially new names for this character when he becomes a god is Stormfather.

amazing, truly amazing
SpectorKnight Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2012
Epic work on this scene :D
zazzles Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2012
just wondering have you finished the books? had a cool idea for an image which i am incapable of drawing :P
krhart Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2012  Professional General Artist
Yeah. =) But I wouldn't have time to do any requests even if I tried. Sorry.
Tchuron Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2012  Student Artist
Not only is it an Amazing piece of Art. But I think it fits that scene from the book very well. :)
keitel66 Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2012
nitpicking: i would have loved to see a more subtle impression of a face emerging from the storm. also, didn't Jezerezeh smile on Kaladin as he passed over him? :)

Other than my little nitpicking.... WOW what a fantastic piece of artwork! It's gorgeous. I love it love it love it.
krhart Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2012  Professional General Artist
Yeah. On my 2nd read, pretty much all the original pieces I did for the book just didn't jive well with me anymore. It seems 2nd reads for books and listens for music usually sink in the best. I'm debating continuing on making works for the book and future works.
keitel66 Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2012
do it doit do it!!!!!

The novel is a fantastic one, and your pictures really gives the same feeling as one got by reading the book.
priscellie Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2011  Student Filmographer
Excellent! A very dynamic representation of a very powerful scene. I love the way the lightning echoes the cracks in the ground. The Stormfather's face is wonderfully intense. It looks carved into the page!
childersart Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2011  Student General Artist
IS this from the Chasm scene?
krhart Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2011  Professional General Artist
Well, it is supposed to be the vision he had when he was punished by being put on the barracks outside during the storm. I'm thinking of revisiting this idea to make it a bit clearer later on.
VinWager Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2011
i love the books
really amazing picture
Kiarrens Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2011
Oh man. I would totally buy a print of this. Do you have any larger resolutions you could make available for prints?
krhart Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2011  Professional General Artist
I do not have prints. Actually, I am not even sure I would feel comfortable making prints of these as it is not my IP and I have the creatives that have penned (I suspect) and drawn some of the concepts (verified) watching them. Perhaps at a later date if I've received permission. I am glad you like this one. I've been thinking of doing another version since this one has several things leaving me wanting.
ti7503 Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2011
oh holy crap! incredibly happy to see someone draw stuff from the book :)
Loralus Featured By Owner May 29, 2011
absolutely fantastic! very similar to how i pictured Kaladin's vision. hoping I'd be able to get a larger copy for my wallpaper?
Zlurpo Featured By Owner May 22, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
There's a forum with a collection of art from TWoK here: [link]
I'm sure the followers would love to see your work. Cuz it's awesome.
krhart Featured By Owner May 22, 2011  Professional General Artist
I'm a lurker there! I love reading all the conjecture. I probably wouldn't be a good member, as I'm never around much to do any interaction, even here sadly. I might mosey over and make an account soon though.

Thanks. =)
iFrostyIce Featured By Owner May 5, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
A terrific piece of work :)
Do you possibly have a version with a larger resolution so I could use it as my wallpaper?
krhart Featured By Owner May 5, 2011  Professional General Artist
Sure, it'll be a couple of hours but Ill send it over to you via note once I get home. =)
Prudins Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2011
Awesome. In my head the storms were a little brighter, but I love this depiction. The fact that it resembles how it appeared in his dream makes it even better and gives me a little more freedom to allow the darkness.

Great pic :) perfectly depics that scene :)
