Perhaps my least favorite of my Wheel of Time illustrations, this is the hidden city of Rhuidean in the Aiel Waste, after Rand al'Thor returns from his duel and the mist covering the city is dispersed. This is admittedly a very fake-looking city, but it was an effort during my first few weeks learning Bryce v1.0. I thought a few of my more 'hardcore' WOT-art fans would like to see it though.

Its not exactly what i thought it would look like but it looks great. The ball thing in the center....is that that the thing that was referced while rand was rhuiden.

It's definately not how i invisioned Rhuidean. It's to computerized. Yet it still seems to hold all of what Rhuidean touted in the book.

Loial needs to sing to Avenderosa to revive it (following Rand's fight with Asmodean). Then the tinkers need to enter the glass towers hand-in-hand with Aiel to hear "the song". With it's new lake, this will become the great city that the Jenn started. Nice interpretation!
