Fan Art Friday (87)

This week's fan art is inspired by Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, which is pretty much the most amazing book in existence. If you want to read my review, which is basically just a fangirl gushfest, you can do so here. Anyway, the original piece I had done for this will probably never see the light of day. It was just a jar of teeth sitting on a worn wooden desk with feathers hanging all around. It wasn't bad and it did fit with the story, but it just didn't have the right mood and charm that the story has. I focused more on Karou and I think the outcome is one of my personal favorite pieces from me. In my honest opinion, I feel like that is Karou on my poster. What say you?

Thoughts? Yay/nay, awesomesauce or epic fail? Comment and let me know what you think! Your thoughts are always appreciated!

  2. She's a celebrity and that's actually how her ear is. Never noticed that though! Hahah.
