Fan Art Friday (93)

This week's fan art is based on Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. I haven't been reading anything that has got my creative juices flowing lately, so I decided to go to one of my all-time favorites. I've already done character fan art for Karou and Brimstone, so now I'm adding Akiva to the collection. The hardest thing about this piece is his fiery wings. Can you even tell that those are fiery wings behind him and not just random flames? Eh, at least those who have read the book will get it. Despite the lack of tan skin, I think I portrayed Akiva fairly well. What say you?

Thoughts? Yay/nay, awesomesauce or epic fail? Comment and let me know what you think!

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

Happy Weekend!

P.S. - If the site/design is looking kind of wonky to you it's because it's going through some maintenance. Some issues may include the header cutting off the nav bar or the layout not being centered. I apologize for the inconvenience! I'm working on it and it'll be behaving properly soon!
