Death of Rahvin

Subject: Nynaeve al'Meara witnesses the Forsaken Rahvin's death by balefire in Tel'aran'rhiod. Source: The Fires of Heaven: 55, The Threads Burn Thoughts: This took me a long time to do, since I went through three different perspectives before I settled on one that I thought appropriate. I wanted to include Moghedien in the picture; in the end I decided against it, but you can still see the a'dam leash trailing away. For the purists out there, I acknowledge that I took some artistic license with the scene. I know Nynaeve didn't have enough time to throw her hands up, and I doubt Rahvin saw what was coming or was able to get as close to Nynaeve as I have him depicted here. One point of difficulty was figuring out how to draw white balefire on a white background. The second thing was that as I was finishing up I remembered that Rahvin was a basically a charcoal briquette before being killed. So I looked up how burn victims generally look to get it right.
