the little prince

hi!

a long long time ago, i was very kindly invited to this community, and i must apologize for sitting idle for so long. i think i started reading some very depressing books last year and was very demotivated. however i have always been a fan of books written by dead people and one of my favorites is the children's book 'The Little Prince'.

The Shadow of the Wind; His Dark Materials

Even though I've been a member of this community for a while now, this is my first post. I feel like I should have something better than a few measly sketches T_T;;

Last summer, I bought The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon after reading this post by themadteaparty. I ended up finishing it in a day and a half, and read it a second time before the month was out. Many, many thanks for introducing me to this book ;3; ♥ (I've since recommended it to a dozen of my friends, using force when necessary to get them to read it XDDD)

Anyway, I finally found the fanart (just sketches :P) I did for the book and scanned it in ^^; This is OLD art (over a year old T_T), so I apologize for the crappiness x_x;

Books are mirrors.Collapse )


This summer, I entertained myself with His Dark Materials trilogy. I couldn't stop myself from drawing Balthamos and Baruch, easily my most favorite characters from the book. It sucks that they don't have a lot of "screen time" (:P), so I contented myself with drawing them.

Again, crappy pencil sketches. Also, if you haven't read the last book in HDM, beware of a huuuuuge spoiler.

Balthamos and Baruch. [SPOILERS FOR THE LAST BOOK]Collapse )


I promise to post some decent art eventually ;3;

[art] his dark materials

OMG I'm so sorry that the first HDM art post here is going to suck _D_ some of these I did a while ago, but I didn't get my hands on a decent scanner until coming back home from school. Over winter break I reread The Golden Compass (I hadn't touched it since fifth grade D:) and I experienced a REBIRTH of the latent love that I held for the book ;A; for whatever reason I'd always liked The Subtle Knife the best out of the trilogy--probably because when I read The Golden Compass I didn't really absorb most of its BRILLIANCE--but now I think The Golden Compass has replaced it in my heart ;3;

Three doodles: Mrs. Coulter, Lyra, and Asriel/Will (for permanentwhite who drew me that sexy Tom/Huck :B ♥). The Asriel/Will one is probably not safe for kiddies? (but it's not porny sorry lol)

Lyra stopped beside the Master's chair and flicked the biggest glass gently with a fingernail. The sound rang clearly through the hall.Collapse )

AUUGH SORRY EVERYONE one of these days I'll try to produce something that isn't shite for the comm Dx

LOL...and to tell the truth I don't think I ever finished The Amber Spyglass :') (and I dare to call myself a fan D:) AHH anyway so psyched about the movie~~♥

First post! Yes, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a classic, but being who I am, and being friends with themadteaparty, I just had to uh, corrupt it. _D_

Tom & Huck... uh, maybe unPC but I wasn't thinking too hard when I drew this 8BCollapse )

[art] the sound and the fury

It makes me sad to see that the post before this one is not only over a month old, but also...my own. Awww. D: DON'T YOU GUYS LOVE THIS COMMUNITY?! Dx *squalls like a gull in a storm*

Speedpaint of Quentin, from The Sound and the Fury, which is QUITE possibly one of the greatest books in the English language.

and we'd sit in the dry leaves that whispered a little with the slow respiration of our waitingCollapse )

PS: C'mon people, this is a group effort! No pressure or anything, I mean. 8) If you're not going to post anything, at least pimp the comm out? D: *wheedles* To your friends (both artists and non-artists)! To your idols! Recommend artists for us to harass, or, even better, harangue them for us ;3;b
