This one is pretty sick. The ravens behind matt make for a pretty cool design. I'll join the choir and hope for a full size art piece of this.

Hmm... who is that supposed to be. I know it can't be Mat since he doesn't have either scarf or scars. And since there are actually no ravens on the weapon it would really fail to pass that test either.

The ravens in the background would signal more of the hand of the dark one since they are a sign of his presense and act as spies for him. Mat and Rand seemed to like killing them but I am sure the many battles and battle fields had a lot to do with the ending of that practice. Still would not be a happy occasion to have them flapping around though.

Well, either way... the pic looks good. Maybe I am just being picky. LOL.

It definately is Matt, with the
Ashandarei and the foxhead necklace, and it looks like there is a scar on his neck if you blow up the photo. It is interesting that he has both eyes though! Can't wait for the final book to release.

ha... probably one of the only websites where this handle will get recognized.

I'd like to point out that far as I recall Matt HAD both eyes in tSR. He didn't lose an eye until book 13. If you look inside his white shirt that could be a scarf. The scar tissue (if that's what it is) is a light whiter band in the shadows of his neck.

Honestly my heart will always be to Mr. Sweet's drawings but if that wasn't so tainting my thoughts I could love this.

Great image, would have loved it even more if he had his hat though.

Is there any way to get the Great Snake in the background as a separate image, by the way?
