Name of the Wind: Imre and the Eolian
This page contains my fan art of Imre and the Eolian from The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. The Name of the Wind is the first book in The Kingkiller Chronicle. An introduction to each book can be found at Patrick Rothfuss' official page, along with Pat's blog (warning: occasional -- well, frequent -- strong language).
Spoiler warning: spoilers through chapter 58.
You can view the files either through the gallery below or the individual image links just below the gallery. Below that, I have included a discussion of the build and some of the customization involved, followed by copyright and use information. If you're on mobile, the menus are at the bottom of the page.

About this build
The Eolian is one of the most iconic settings in the Kingkiller Chronicle. Originally, I intended to just build the interior of the one building, but after taking notes on Imre, the setting infected me a bit. I really enjoyed creating a fantasy-themed town and getting to populate it with various types of artists and musicians.
The lighting was a beast. The lights in buildings other than the Eolian are individual light bricks, which are easy to install. However, the multitude of lights in the Eolian are all connected to a single control box and power supply, so the entire building had to be wired. I've done several wired builds, and I think it takes roughly twice as long that way. I enjoyed the result, though.
