This is an image I did for a Tshirt design recently. It's loosely based on the book Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sandereson. I did the design for Brandon and a writing group he is in. The llama part is from another writer in the group and the bone dagger is from yet another writer in the group. All in all it was a fun project. The hardest part was definetly trying to work out some llama anatomy into these action poses. I did the project for a chance to read Mistborn before it was published and then a signed copy of the book when it came out and let me tell you I got the better end of that deal. The book is fantastic. Brandon has quickly become one of the writers who I will buy anything he puts out there (unless of course we barter more art for free books). I can't praise it enough. Go buy it right now. If you're skeptical about buying the book check out Brandon's website where he has plenty of free chapters and other goodies. I go there all the time to see what free junk I can get inbetween his published works. His site is www.brandonsanderson.com. Also while I'm plugging cool sites, the friend of mine who set me up with this cool gig is the guy who did the art for the maps in the mistborn book. He's one of the coolest guys I know and has a hilariously cool site. www.nethermore.com. Thanks for the help Isaac.
