New Triptych Art for Brazilian Edition of Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn Trilogy

Marc Simonetti cover art Brandon Sanderson Mistborn

We knew that artist Marc Simonetti had created some gorgeous cover art for the Brazilian edition of Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn trilogy, but we didn't know how gorgeous his triptych of all three covers would look until now!

Kelsier fights the Steel Inquisitors for the first Mistborn cover, which is lovely enough, In addition to the Kelsier action shot, we also see Vin on the cover for Well of Ascension and Elend fighting Koloss on the cover for The Hero of Ages. We especially love how the mist, which blankets the planet on most nights, swirls around the action and insinuates itself into the fights.

Looks great except for one slightly weird quibble. . .Vin just looks TOO conventionally "badass" for my taste. Feels odd criticizing a depiction of a female protagonist for looking too badass, but I think you're missing something important with Vin if you can't see, at all, that she can kick butt despite what an emotional wreck she is.

Like what @1 said, and that mistcloaks are dark grey, not black.

But it's a great painting!

I love them! But where's Elend's beard?
I kind of agree with @1 a little, too. But those are minor criticisms, the overall work looks great!

They look exceptional. I like it how Kelsier's smiling. For some reason I always imagined Vin paler.
