Aha, and now I shall compliment the artist duh =) I think it is amazing that you did not draw lines in her face, sooo many people find it difficult not to knowing how old she is, it's difficult to convey extreme age without the usual wear and tear on your features =) Quite stunning

I also love your take on the great serpent ring

all over it's a fantastic piece and I hope you are very proud =)))

She's a lot...nicer then I picture. Then again, a rock is nicer, so ya. xD
I love it, though. 'Specially the hair ornaments!

It isn't necessarily that she isn't nice =) I always think of her as the old codger that believes in corporal punishment in a time such as this, where it is wholly frowned upon. She uses..."alternative"...methods to achieve her goals, rather than steering Rand Al' Thor to his destiny, she merely tries to make him aware that he has one to face, and teaches him how to face it. Which is hilarious because her approach, along with Min's viewing, has made her the only Aes Sedai able to approach him from an adviser's stand point since Moiraine died. Eat that Elaida =)

haha, yeah, I struggled a little bit with her expression. But, it never describes her as a scowler..so I decided to go with that infuriating calm that rand is always talking about :) Thanks!

I love this! You looked at some of Helen Mirren right? She is totally my choice for Cadsuanne too. Great job. I just love the almost smirk that she has. The only critique I have is to add some more shadows to give it more of a striking dramatic look. Other than that fantastic, she needs more art out there.

Yes! Helen Mirren, but I also looked at a little Angelica Houston, especially for her eyes. Cadsuane is definitely ones of my favorites. I just finished re-reading the entire series a couple weeks ago, and I love her even more this time around! :)

That is a great choice too. I like to look at more than one actor for the portraits I do. That way it does not come out looking like a specific person. They should have their own face. I just love Cadsuane too

Definitely. A lot of the time, people close to me in my life somehow come through all of my creative filters, no matter how hard I try not to. I think familiarity is key when conjuring up a face from written descriptions. I think that's why actors or actresses are such widely used references for artists. We all know those faces, we love them, and are familiar with their expressions. And of course...I immediately wonder who would play this or that character in a movie. lol ;)

That is very common. For a long time a lot of my men had features of my boyfriend with out intention. lol
I like to use a mix of actors because it creates an image of what everyone see's. So that most fans are happy with the interpretation and so that the character has their own unique face.
I do the casting thing too

It's a beautiful portrait of a very dignified woman, and I think you pegged the agelessness. I only wish she looked a little less serene.

Hm, Wasn't it said that no one could top Cadsuane in Aes Sedai serenity? ;) Thank you, I knew she would be a tough one to capture due to the gravity of her character, but I wanted to give it my best try.

Well, the pic is not as impressive as Cadsuane is in the Books.

I don't think it would be possible to make her quite as impressive as she is in the books. I'm not sure if a person like Cadsuane could even exist! ;)

Yeah her description was a short one. But you really nailed the expression I imagine every time she annoys Rand. Not to mention that was exactly what I kept imagining her Hair thingies looked like

hehehe, me too! That's the exact expression I had in mind when I started the painting. haha, I redid the hair ornaments twice before I was satisfied, so I'm so so glad you like them! :highfive:
