Ah, those famous opening words… And now we welcome our protagonist, Rand al’Thor. Presently a blissfully unaware sheepherder whose biggest problem is being uncomfortable around Egwene. Oh, poor boy, you’re in for a hell of a ride from here on out.
Landscape study for the Quarry Road that Tam and Rand are travelling along to get to Emond’s Field. Not based on a particular photo but I just took inspiration from a bunch of references.
Some studies of our main man while I’m at it. I don’t know if he would wear a bracer as a common thing, but the are fun to draw. Longbows are damn tall.
