Simply incredible. Love the idea of the stained glass and reality merging.

Excellent picture, very Red! I like the representation of of the Red sister holding the man (Rand?) in chains, and the different poses of him. XD

Misandry aside, I think the Greens are just as bad as the Red. Never liked either of those Ajahs, the sisters in them all seem like crazy, aggressive people. >.<

Hah! Yeah, the Greens do sometimes come off aggressive. However, they're depicted as typically treating their Warders very well. I share their sentiments. I'd love to have that many men around!

Awesome capture of the more extreme Red Ajah ladies :nod:

Now this is really awesome. :+favlove:
I kind of argued that I didn't like WoT in a feminist kind of way but this picture has me thinking... it's more than feministic, it's matriarchal. :XD:

Woohoo! Glad you like it and that it inspired some thoughts about matriarchal themes...

Haha, yeah, while re-reading WoT I find that some women really are dominant and awesome. The Aes Sedai were a source of inspiration for me when I was younger. How could I forget? :P

Wow! Agree with other posters that this really captures the mood of the Red Ajah in general (although thankfully not all of them are that way). The color work is exceptional.

WOW. That is one hell of a work of art. The composition is extraordinary. The way the two dimensional window connects with the three dimensional figure is completely inspired, as is the intense color scheme. Just beautifully composed and executed.

This is neat It reminds me of the dream Elaida had of Rand, under her power. You really show the mood or the red Ajah for sure. The colors work wonderfully.

I want to said that she is very beautiful. If all women from Red Aiah such beauties, problems in hunting on men at them do not arise

Wow. That's a perfect depiction! O_O The Red Ajah's fear is truly damaging to men and you convey it so well. Thanks for posting!

this... is pretty much the personification of Red Ajah. though there are some decent enough women in that ajah, I would say, for the majority of them, you've hit spot on. I commend you. >bows<

Very cool! Awesome coloring, and there's so much detail in the stained-glass sort of background. Is she an antagonist? I don't think I've read this far in Wheel of Time. :P

Hey thanks! She isn't a specific character, though. This piece was more of a depiction of how I view the Red Ajah. They being heartless man-haters and everything.
