First off: your high skill level definately shows and I am by no means remotely near your level of art production. So I stand in awe. The rendering is beatiful, as are the color choices (blue knight vs orangish sky and some tempered green in the foreground). The composition is interesting insofar as the diagonal goes, and the movement of flakes of stuff and the cloak add to the dynamics of the piece. I am left to wonder though: what is he doing? Sword drawn, as if about to be attacked by something/someone to the right, just off the page. This adds mystery, which is a good thing. But it does feel a little weird. Maybe the knight suffers from delusions/hallucinations instead?
The castle in the background could do with a little less saturation in my opinion, to push it further back. Also adding something of a middle ground between the foreground (knight, rocks) and the background (castle) could add more depth to the piece. I hope you will find these observations/musings helpful. If not, feel free to discard. :) Keep rocking!

This could completely be recycled as an awesome Stormlight Archive cover now.  It seems even more appropriate for it.

I'm reading Memory of light right now, rather listening to the audiobook whilst I paint. Briliant artist for a brilliant writer. Remind me to get this good.

This is beautiful and extremely well done, though Im having a hard time connecting it to the novel, warbreaker is my favorite book, I've read it several times since I got it, the last one being a few days ago, and I simply don't see how this fantastic piece fits in in the narrative, The only way I could relate it to it would be if it depicts an scene from the Manywar, which itself is not ocurring in the books time period... help please?

Hey, glad you like that piece. Regarding the bookcover, its the decision of the publisher decision. I havent had the chance to read the book, maybe they wanted to keep going with the knighttheme for all of his fantasy books, since i did 3 covers with different knights for them now.
