Let's Dance by Antichristofer Let's Dance by Antichristofer
My version of Richard and a Mriswith from Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series. I'm re-reading the series again and I had to do some fanart while I have the time.

Hope you like it!

Sorry to fans of the show...I know he doesn't look like the actor, but this is how I envision him :P

What books are these, could you give me the complete name of the series and the volumes one by one? Do you know if is it translated in Spain? Thanks Pinkie Chibi Pie Dancing

La Espada de La Verdad, de Terry Goodkind. A mi parecer, la saga más infravalorada de todos los tiempos. El autor enseña filosofía mediante una historia de fantasía épica, con personajes entrañables, lugares de ensueño, una historia que abarca todos los aspectos positivos y negativos del ser humano, entre otras muchas cosas. El primer libro es el más... ¿cómo decirlo? El que tiene una visión más cerrada, esto no quiere decir que no sea interesante. La saga tiene 11 libros, en la versión en español se hacíam muy largos por lo tanto se dividieron en dos cada uno. Los libros son:

1. El libro de las sombras contadas - 2. Las cajas del destino - 3. La Piedra de las Lágrimas - 4. La Amenaza del Custodio - 5. La sangre de la virtud - 6. El Caminante de los Sueños - 7. La profecía de la Luna Roja - 8. El Templo de los Vientos - 9. El espíritu del fuego - 10. El Gemelo de la Montaña - 11. La señora de la muerte - 12. La fe de los caídos - 13. La estirpe de Rahl el Oscuro - 14. Los pilares de la creación - 15. El ladrón de almas - 16. El imperio de los vencidos - 17. La desaparición de Kahlan - 18. Cadena de fuego - 19. La bruja del viejo mundo - 20. La biblioteca secreta - 21. El año de la purificación - 22. La Confesora

Espero que no te amedrente el número. Pocas veces tendrás la oportunidad de leer algo ni remotamente parecido. Richard Cypher, es el protagonista más íntegro, humano y honrado que he leído jamás, que se enfrenta a sus miedos con una valentía sorprendente y que lucha hasta las últimas consecuencias por lo que considera correcto para los suyos y para toda la existencia viva. Lucha por un futuro mejor, un lugar donde la mácula del mal no pueda volver a hacer estragos, y donde todos sean libres para vivir sus vidas como les plazca y desde la bondad y la libertad, pues  como él bien dice en multitud de ocasiones: «Vuestra vida es sólo vuestra. Alzaos y vividla.»

¡Muchísimas gracias!!! Pikachu yays Y no me dan miedo, cuantos más libros mejor, si me he leído cosas como muchos libros de Dragonlance así que no me asusta, pero me gustaría buscar fantasía como esta, menos conocida, todo el mundo hablando de Juego de tronos (personalmente no me gusta nada y debo ser la única en el mundo) cuando existen tropecientas novelas fantásticas mucho más interesantes. 
En serio muchísimas gracias!!! Voy a apuntarlo y los buscaré :D :D :D

Glad his eyes are grey, in the TV series he could have put some contacts in at least, but then again it's just a variation of the story. Love your work I am a huge fan of the series. I've only just started, and I am about to read 'Blood of the Fold" when I finally get it. Truly inspiring to see your stuff.

Thank god you don't follow the show's aspect of Richard. He looks like a manchild not to mention the height discrepancies. Anyway, love this and it's movement. The background really inspires me, the sword is eerie and makes me heart thump thinking of all the times he 'danced'

you should have directed that damn show, all your drawings are as though you hacked into the fans' brains and took how we perceived the book scenes and drew them.
Your work is incredible!

The Dance With Death was one of my favorite parts about the series, and this is awesome no less. Would you mind if I use this to make a banner to represent what my signature means on a website?

I think you shouldn't be sorry at all, it's your vision and it's awesome :)
I must admit I'm re-reading the series as well, but that would be the third time for me ;B
But also this time it's different because I'm reading it in English instead of my mother tongue that makes it all so new and fun :)
I'd loooveee to see more of your art related to the series, keep up the good work :)

I only speak English so I can't say for sure, but I would assume that reading something in the language that it was originally written in would make a big difference. (although I'm sure Mr. Goodkind is pretty awesome in any language) ;)

I'm working on a new Seeker painting right now actually. Hopefully it will be up by tonight or tomorrow!

He probably is awesome in ANY language, I agree :3
I'm just all the time looking for any details that could've been skipped in the polish translation, don't know why ;D
Yay, I can't wait :heart: :)

This is incredible :D I know you got comments on the sword in the past, but I have to add mine, too - I can't even find the words to say how ridiculously awesome it is. I really, really love the background, especially the Wizard's Keep and those ominous looking stairs going up to it in the mountains (assuming that's the Keep).

And also - Voldemort!

Yea, the show did not live up to my expectations either. Kahlan was close to looking like I pictured...but not Richard...not at all.

At least we have 3 more books on the way!

:icongalactickitten:
GalacticKitten Featured By Owner May 6, 2010
Yeah, Richard didn't work for me at all! Zedd was ok, Kahlan wasn't really either, but close enough.

3 more books? He's writing stuff after Confessor???
Reply
:iconantichristofer:
Antichristofer Featured By Owner May 7, 2010
yep! I believe he signed a 3 book contract with publisher Tor. The first one is supposed to come out in 2011 I believe. check out www.terrygoodkind.com

Have you read Law of Nines? He wrote that after confessor
Reply
:icongalactickitten:
GalacticKitten Featured By Owner May 7, 2010
I haven't read law of nines yet, but I've seen it. I'd like to though, have you read it?

I checked out the site... he seems to enjoy elaborate displays...

But anyway, I'm excited for that, but at the same time, I hope that it lives up to the series. Not that I doubt it, but I don't always trust in sequels!!
But anything is better than the tv show, so at least there's a lower limit =)

:iconantichristofer:
Antichristofer Featured By Owner May 7, 2010
haha, yea it took forever for that stupid video to load (no highspeed) and it really didn't say much.

I havn't been disapointed by one of his books yet, so...here's hoping it wont happen this time either. Thanks for planting that seed of doubt though :P

Law of Nines was .. different...but still good. I recommend it :)
