Hey everyone. This is a preliminary sketch of how (I feel) the 4th book in the Inheritance Cycle SHOULD have ended. As a fan of the Inheritance Cycle for several years, I was very disappointed with the way Christopher Paolini decided to bring the series to a close...so I said "screw that"! Here we see Eragon & Arya in a lover's embrace. Notice something else about this picture? Saphira and Firnen will be in it too! (But they're not finalized yet). Picking a look for Eragon was difficult; there's not much to go by as reference material. Their clothing designs were based off styles seen during the Middle Ages. Even if this were the actual ending to the story, this picture is supposed to show them both several years after the war against the empire. Eragon looks older (more appropriate considering the age gap between he and Arya). The inked and full color versions will follow as soon as they become available. Feel free to comment.
