Has pictures of the stages...he freely admits to never having read the books. SHOCKER.

I WAS going to post this, but nevermind. :rolleyes:

I always enjoy seeing the process behind the creation of the covers (I really enjoyed the making of the e-book covers).

At least he has Nynaeve with short hair.

I also like how Rand has a hand in one of the figure drawings.

Actually, I think it's a couple. He's holding Callandor in his left a few times.

And by that I mean he has two hands, not a hand. Obviously he has at least one hand in all the concepts.

It's not obvious at all. The prophecy of Elayne and a severed hand still hasn't been fulfilled, so he might have lost the other one. As far as we knew before AMOL, anyway.

We already knew that; they posted some bits from this when they first shared the cover art, and he commented that now he had to read the books.

Nah. It might get moved there eventually, but most people don't pay any attention to that forum. We mostly use it for posting transcripts and whatnot, and I tweet those when we post them.
