Richard Cypher by Wreckluse
Richard Cypher
From Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series of books.

This is Richard Cypher finding the snake vine.  This is before he is Seeker and before he knows who his real father is.  I'll do a Richard Rahl later on down the road, though. Im trying to do these in chronological order from here on out :)
    I have always been a huge fan of Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series of books.  I would even go so far to say that those books are somewhat responsible for me becoming the artist that I am today.  Most of my very first digital paintings were of characters and scenes presented in those books, and my desire to become a better artist stemmed somewhat from my frustration at not being able to accurately depict those characters and scenes on paper.

    Now that series is finally coming to an end. (sadly)  I believe the last Richard and Kahlan novel "Warheart" is due to release in November and I am both excited and sad at the same time! That series will always have a special place in my heart and I am going to use the only tool I have in my arsenal to show my appreciation. My art.

    So from now until November I am going to be doing two things.  First.....I am going to be completely re-reading the series! (woohoo)  And second.... I am going to do my best to paint EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER IN THE WHOLE FRIGGIN SERIES! haha .   Ok well...maybe not EVERY character.. but every main character for sure, and as many secondary characters as I can cram in there. I will even try to do important scenes that happen throughout the course of the adventure. With the exception of Cara (because I have already started on a painting of her.  She is my favorite.) I am going to try and do them in chronological order as they appear in the books.  I will also mostly likely do multiple versions of the main characters as they change throughout the series.  I am going to try and keep them as accurate as I can to the books when is comes to physical descriptions and clothing as well.

    My goal is to do a character a week, but that may change as time goes on depending on life events.  I think I have developed enough as an artist to be able to somewhat do justice to the characters, and I intend this to be a celebration of Mr. Goodkind's incredible series, as well as a celebration of the impact those novels have had on me as a person and an artist.

    So here we go! This is gonna be fun :)
