Cthaeh by ArthurBlue Cthaeh by ArthurBlue
If you've read 'The Wise Man's Fear' you'll know who/what Cthaeh was. This scene was inspired by the encounter between Kvothe and Cthaeh, while he was in Felurian land. I chose to depict Kvothe in the most traditional look he has throughout the book (at least in my mind) although at the time of this encounter he didn't have his lute with him (nor any clothes, for that matter...). In some other details I was also not completely faithful to the scene in the book (the path deviated more from the tree, for example, but that didn't work visually in one single still image). The clouds were also not present in the book but I thought it worked well for the concept.

Rendered in Vue, as always.

This is so amazing. I don't even know where to start.

i always thought the Cthaeh's tree did'nt have leaves, but instead had the butterflies that then littered the ground. so i sort of imagined a giant ever-shifting rainbow tree

I thought Cthaeh would be bigger and sort of more ancient, but this setting is just as great!

Also I don't think Kvothe had his lute there. Or any cloths. Or am I wrong?

Man, this is blowing my mind. It looks so realistic while keeping this quality that places it in the Fae. It's like you actually took a picture of the inside of the book. Kvothe is an incredible touch, too.

Like this one very much!.....and if I'm not mistaken, that's the same kind of tree I asked about in a previous picture.....is it solid growth or imported?.....the branches make me think its solid growth but the trunk is much better than anything I've seen with Vue.....

Thanks.
Yes, that's the same tree, xfrog. :)

Very interesting, for some reason I always thought of "Felurian land" in darkness. Even though they spent a very long time together, it always looked like the moon was the only light source (in my mind).
