Brandon Sanderson Character Minis

Okay, so one day I was staring blankly at a piece of paper, wondering what to draw, and I ended up sketching Vin, a character from the novel Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson (my favorite author). After a moment I thought "What if I drew little, mini, adorable versions of people from a bunch of Brandon's novels!?" And so it began.

I ended up with Vin and Elend from Mistborn: the Final Empire, Vivenna and Siri from Warbreaker, 
Sarene from Elantris, and, of course, Shallan and Kaladin from The Way of Kings. Being the very smart and resourceful person that I am, I rushed through the sketches without even thinking to look in the books for descriptions of any of them.

But, overall, with me drawing from memory, I think that they ended up looking pretty nice. (Except for the hands. Why is it always the hands?!)

This drawing was sketched in pencil, outlined in pen, and colored in with colored pencils. Each character is about two inches tall.

Of course, if you've never read anything by Brandon Sanderson, I insist that you go find the nearest copy of anything penned by him. That man is a mad genius. He has some of the best fantasy books you will find anywhere.


  1. I feel your pain on the hands. I suck at drawing hands. However I do admit you did extremely well. Also you did quite a bit for week one.

  2. Thanks so much! But I didn't do all of that in week 1, it was just that Mr W encouraged me to upload some of my previous work. :) Anything labeled "Art 1" is for class, pretty much everything else is from _before_. *waves hands vaguely*

  3. Chibis of your usually long thin style is cute too!
