Fan Art Friday (73)

This week's fan art is based on The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa. I just finished The Iron Queen last night, and it was - as expected- epic. If you haven't already, you can read my review here. Anyway, this isn't my first piece of Iron Fey fan art. I did one based on The Iron King last year which primarily focused on our favorite feline, Grim. But I wanted to do something with all four of them and this was the outcome. Casting these characters was like pulling teeth. I asked on Twitter and you all had great suggestions, but it came down to the right pictures. I love Carly Schroeder for Meghan and I was immediately on board with Eddie Redmayne for Puck (although he'd be way too old to play him in an actual movie) but Ash was so hard. In the end, I picked that specific picture of Nicholas Hoult for Ash. But just THAT picture, not him in general. The end result is kind of bland, but I mainly just wanted to put together the characters so no sparkly/colorful effects today, kiddies.

Thoughts? Yay/nay, awesomesauce or epic fail? Comment and let me know! (And FYI - just because Puck is bigger and in the center does not mean I'm Team Puck. TEAM ASH FTW!)

If you've got YA book fan art that you'd like featured on Fan Art Friday, just shoot me an email at!

Happy Weekend!
