Hi there. If you've read my comments on the earlier versions of this drawing, then you know that I was extremely displeased with the way Christopher Paolini decided to bring the Inheritance Cycle to a close. The 4th book was plagued by pointless tangents that deviated from the plot (the siege of Aroughs, for example), useless characters (Firnen/Shruikan/Lord Barst), a rather disappointing climax, a plethora of unanswered questions, and a horribly bitter ending that defies reason and fails to follow any sort of logical thought path. Cliche or not, THIS ending would have been much more satisfying to read.
With that being said, here we see Eragon & Arya in a lover's embrace, with Saphira & Firnen behind. Saphira was based off the 2006 Eragon film, because I am not a fan of John Jude Palancar's book covers. Firnen was based off Saphira, but given a more 'masculine' look with a strong jaw, teeth, and different scales. This image has been slightly altered from the original; I had Rodel darken Eragon's hair.
