Fan Art Friday (67)

This week's fan art is based on Nevermore by Kelly Creagh. I posted my super gushy review of this book yesterday, but for those who didn't see it, this book blew my mind. I absolutely loved it, so so much. Naturally, I had to do fan art, right? I didn't have a clue what I was going to do at first. All I knew was that I wanted Varen and a crow on it. But then once I picked my Isobel - who is PPL's Ashley Benson - I found the perfect picture of her laying on the ground in a military jacket that looks JUST like Varen's famous jacket in the book. It was fate. Varen was a lot more trickier; I was trying to gothify Ben Barnes for the part (thanks Jen for the suggestion!) But it wasn't working for me. I finally remembered who my biggest goth crush was when I was a teenager, and that was Jake Richardson who played Ian Snyder in Hangman's Curse. I got him all pale and eyelinered and voila! I think it turned out pretty good, what say you?

That damn crow ... I tried so hard to get it to look more natural and realistic to Isobel, but it just didn't happen. My skillz aren't that great, everybody. But I have to applaud my awesome symbolic skills. If you read Nevermore, Isobel laying on that open book (let's pretend it's a collection of Edgar Allan Poe's novels, shall we?) makes so much sense. Even if my horrible photoshopping does not.

Thoughts? Yay, nay, awesomesauce or epic fail? Comment and let me know! I love to hear what you think!

  6. Very lovely! I especially like that this Varen has a lip ring unlike the one on the original cover. *sigh* Oh and love the purple. :)
