Auri and Kvothe by Manweri Auri and Kvothe by Manweri
I am a big fan of Patrick Rothfuss' wonderful series "The Kingkiller Chronicle", often known by the title of the first book "The Name of the Wind". Few books have captivated me as much as this series, and I can't wait to see what will happen next to Kvothe and the people around him. 

I've wanted to illustrate one of the many iconic scenes from the books for quite some time now, and I finally managed to put together this illustration over many little breaks at work and at home. I hope you enjoy it, whether or not you know the books (and if you don't know them, I highly recommend picking them up!) :)

Photoshop, November 2015.

Amazing. I would love this as a poster or canvas. I don't have enough geek art and this is breathtaking!

Nice rendition. Not many artists have captured the characters of this book well. But I think this is one of the best for sure!

This is an absolutely wonderful work. The depiction of Auri here is hands down the best I've seen yet!  You took all the details from the book and melded them perfectly into her design.  She's a very beautiful young woman, but she's also noticeably skinny and malnourished, which is not a characteristic I see reflected often in artwork of her.  Her hair is long, light, and flows easily in the wind.  It also has a good balance of slight stringiness to it, and is unkempt enough visually to give us a picture of how her hair always tends to just 'pop up' with the wind pretty often in the books.  Most importantly, her eyes are appropriately captivated by Kvothe's music :)

haha, I'm babbling now, but this is seriously great.  All of the detail is very beautiful.  You have talent!!

Almost finished reading the first book here, and was searching for some pictures of the characters to see how different they are from my own imagination.
Really, really love this picture, pretty amazing stuff. Keep up the good work!

THIS IS PERFECT! I honestly believe this to be the best representation of these two I have seen to date. Auri is perfect; her hair, face, eyes, posture, everything is exactly how I pictured them. I would be interested in getting a print of this, do you do anything like that? Or would you know how I could go about getting a poster-type print of this. Its too good not to get framed.
