Fan Art Friday (68)

This week's fan art is based on Graceling by Kristin Cashore. I haven't finished reading this one yet, but I absolutely love it so far. Expect my review sometime next week! Since this is such a beloved book, I felt the pressure and high expectations, so I kind of struggled with this one for awhile. Casting Katsa and Po was extremely difficult, but I think I picked decent people. For Katsa, I chose a French actress whose name has escaped me at the moment. (Sorry, French actress! You're a perfect Katsa though!) For Po, I chose Steven R. McQueen. It took a bit of photoshopping to Po-ify him, but I got the gold hoop and the eyes right. Hopefully. I like the overall outcome. What say you?

Thoughts? Yay, nay, awesomesauce or epic fail? Comment and let me know! I'd love to hear your thoughts!

As always, if you've got YA bookish fan art that you'd like featured on Fan Art Friday, shoot me an email at

Happy Weekend! If you're going out partying tonight, be safe and have fun!


  1. Awesome! I love this book, and the girl you choose for Katsa was perfect. Her eyes look amazing. Bravo :)

  2. Gorgeous pick for Katniss -I like!

  3. Lol, Sara, It's Katsa, not Katniss!

    I agree, though!I love Katsa!

  4. It's strange, I'm French and I can't say who this actress is... I'm not even sure if I've already seen her.

  5. I love it! I especially like how you made sure to pay close attention to their eyes.

  6. Oh god, no. Po, MAYBE, but Katsa, no. She look all: Hi... Please don't hurt me. I'm a little sad you see.

    No, Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey is NOT the right actress. It is her, right?
