Abbreviated Calm by KuroReiOokami Abbreviated Calm by KuroReiOokami
Commission for my beloved ~Demosthenes75 :heart:

So basically, the prompt was: "Draw a picture with Bast (Dark haired hooved guy) and Kvothe (Red haired lute player) from the book "The name of the Wind" by Patrick Rothfuss."

Since these are existing characters in a book that I didn't write, but a book that I read and, in fact, am completely in love with, I said okay.~

Also, this scene is COMPLETELY made up. Like, it doesn't even happen in the book. Bast and Kvothe meet up at some point in time, somewhere, somehow, but.... I don't even know when or how or why, ect. That part doesn't even happen in the first book.

ANYWAY since i don't wanna give much away about the book since it's really a hidden gem... more like hidden diamond, i'm gunna not give much away about the characters... SO BUY THE BOOK, FOO! Here's a link to the authors website, too, if ya care to take a gander and a sneak peak of the book [link] (his blog is linked there too)

lol.

SO IN THE MEANTIME,
Enjoy :heart:

Art Me
The Name of The Wind / The Kingkiller Chronicles Patrick rothfuss

Ps: If y'all want, i can upload a few screen shots of me putting this together

oh, wow, this is gorgeous.  It feels vaguely romantic to me, actually;  am I the only one who reads bast as dangerously in love with kvothe?

Actually I'd say this book is more like a rare Emerald or Ruby, seeing as those are more rare than diamonds, apparently, but nonetheless, very rare indeed! Haha. Very well done picture!
