Fan art Friday: Divergent

Hello readers!

I know I haven’t posted in about a month and I apologize for that! I’ve been a lot busier than I thought I would be over summer, including getting my second book together as well as vacations with family and such. I promise I haven’t forgotten about you all.

Yesterday I started (and finished) the first book in the Divergent series; I know, it’s about time that I did. I’ll surely be doing my own “Movie vs Novel” post once it comes out on DVD, instead of linking to another article, which I did when it was released in theaters. Mine will probably be incredibly extensive and nit-picky, just like my other movie vs novel posts. But, anyway, I figured I’d post some fan art on here of the series! Why? Because one: I don’t have much Divergent stuff on here just yet since I just now got into the series myself, and two: fan art friday is awesome. Stop questioning the logic! Stop being such a Erudite!

Before I jabber onward and get punched in the face to shut up by the Dauntless, I’ll get to sharing some art. Enjoy!

tris_and_four_by_mardiyaha-d5hvcil

Time to play some capture the flag! “mardiyaha” illustrates this particular scene on the ferris wheel with Tris and Four. Awesome!

tris_chaoswalks_tumblr_by_chaoswalks-d5vr969

“chaoswalks” illustrates Tris in one of the many simulations of her under water. Wonderfully done!

divergent_by_alinexjonas-d5tm3z6

This looks like it could be a movie poster! I love the elements depicted here by “alinexJonas.”

divergent_poster_by_otakuparade-d608le5

Love the quote, and I also love the artwork! The ferris wheel in the back is a great touch. Good job “OtakuParade”!

divergent_dump_by_emmilinne-d5r9ast

Plenty sketches of Tris and Four/Tobias by “emmilinne.” I love this type of art style!

divergent_by_art_is_passion04-d7esst1

Realistic artwork of the actors from the movie by “Art-is-passion04.” Beautiful colors! Stunning!

Have a fantastic weekend!

If you were to choose a faction, which one would it be? I personally think I’d fit the best in Amity. I love the arts, I love being happy and singing, and a peaceful environment would do me very well.

Keep on reading!

Fan Art Friday: Catching Fire. The “Right in the Feels” Edition

So, I came across this screen shot from the movie Catching Fire. It got me right in the feels.

Mags-Finnick

Isn’t that the sweetest thing? Oh my gosh *sniffles and smiles* 🙂

So, I decided that I’ll look up some fan art of some characters and scenes that’ll punch you right in the gut with all the feels. Feels, I say! FEELS! Obviously there will be spoilers if you haven’t read it already, so you have been warned. (Thanks to Leesa-M for the featured image. It’s beautiful!)

RohanElf. Oh my gosh I can’t even begin how fantastic this piece of art is. It captures this scene of Gale’s whipping perfectly.

Making_A_Stand_by_RohanElf

vampirebangs. Peeta and Katniss on the roof before the games. He’s pretending to practice his knots, but we all know he’s just petting through Katniss’ hair. “I wish I could freeze this moment, right here, right now, and live in it forever.” -Peeta

Katniss_Peeta_Catching_Fire_by_vampirebangs

SillyHayPenguin. I love the title of this work: “oh damn. her dress is on fire?” Love it! I’m really looking forward to this scene when her wedding dress burns to flame, and becomes the mockingjay instead.

oh_damn__her_dress_is_on_fire__by_sillyhatpenguin-d4lwad4

Chii-Kawaii-Chan. Peeta, Katniss, Finnick, and Johanna. I really enjoy their expressions in this one, you can really see the stress in their expressions on what they have to go through.

Catching_Fire_by_Chii_Kawaii_Chan

Archer-AMS. “This is no place for a girl on fire.” -Katniss. Ah! Love this artwork! So intense.

catching_fire__i__m_going_back_into_the_arena____by_archer_ams-d5mjn02

SatelliteGhost. This particular artist creates her own version of Cinna. Personally, I think this fits him perfectly. If you read the books, you’ll understand why the character Cinna hits you right in the feels. Gosh, this artwork is stunning ❤

a254515120615dcf87539d6e531d456e-d4v7p93

La-Chapeliere-Folle. To add another pin to your heart with Cinna, here’s this beautifully done artwork. “I always channel my emotions into my work. That way, I don’t hurt anyone but myself.” -Cinna

i_always_channel_my_emotions_into_my_work_by_la_chapeliere_folle-d4sto5b

TheSearchingEyes. There’s so many things to take note of in this artwork! It’s incredibly and wonderfully done, the lighting in everything is beautiful! Mags in the fog to the left…*sniffles*

tick_tock_painting___digital_redo_by_thesearchingeyes-d58a82e

shizsbella. Dang, the colors in this one! This one just embodies all of the strength that Katniss has to have in order to survive and conquer. It’s absolutely stunning!

dark_days_by_shizsbella-d50l3ol

kathrynlillie. I love the artwork, captures the emotions here perfectly 🙂

“No one really needs me,” he says, and there’s no self-pity in his voice.
It’s true his family doesn’t need him.
They will mourn him, as will a handful of friends.
But they will get on. Even Haymitch, with the help of a lot of white liquor, will get on.
I realize only one person will be damaged beyond repair if Peeta dies. Me.
“I do,” I say. “I need you.”

__i_need_you____by_tasukisflame-d4l4hcc

La-Chapeliere-Folle. Peeta’s pearl! Awwww ❤ Love the colors chosen for this piece.

peeta__s_pearl_by_la_chapeliere_folle-d4ew30j

theaven. Oh, the jabberjay scene!

“Peeta presses his hand against the surface and I put my own up to meet it, as if I can feel him through the wall…I try to make out what he’s saying, but I can’t focus, so I just stare at his face, doing my best to hang on to my sanity.” -Katniss

quarter_quell__jabberjays_by_theaven-d5c4nbs

finnodair. To add another part of the jabberjay scene, we’re focusing on Finnick.

“Finnick’s screaming as well, over and over. ‘Annie! Annie!’

He’s in a state of panic and completely unreachable, so I do what I would do anyway. I scale an adjacent tree, locate the jabberjay, and take it out with an arrow. It falls straight down, landing right at Finnick’s feet.

He picks it up, slowly making the connection, but when I slide down to join him, he looks more despairing than ever.

‘It’s all right, Finnick. It’s just a jabberjay. They’re playing a trick on us,” I say. “It’s not real. It’s not your…Annie.'”

finnick_and_the_jabberjays_by_dozing-d4yjrfu

RohanElf. To end it with a big ‘ouch’ in the heart…

“There is no district 12.”

7f2bc385501b8e707027e82c33701e54-d2xofxw

Talk about a load of emotions in this one. The shading, her expression, that skull in the front *shudders*

I have two other posts with Catching Fire fan art that you can check out:

Want a Sugar Cube?

This new still from “Catching Fire” has been released of Finnick Odair offering a sugar cube. Enjoy 🙂

Finnick-Odair

Personally he looks a bit awkward here, but it’s probably just the angle 🙂 I’m willing to give this guy a chance as Finnick, obviously they chose him for a reason!

How do you feel about Finnick thus far? In the movie, that is. I know you love him in the book 😉

And in celebration of the awesome sugar cube scene, I’ve decided to add some artwork as well to this post of the scene. Why? Because I can. And because I love art. More Finnick the better, right?

That little smirk while asking if she wants one. Yes, Finnick, I’ll have one…or two…or you. Can I eat sugar cubes off you? Okay, thanks 🙂

“With secrets” he says softly. He tips his head in so his lips are almost in contact with mine. “What about you, girl on fire? Do you have any secrets worth my time?”

And_you_____by_graysee

Now I want a sugar cube. Seriously, Katniss? I would totally take one.

May the odds be ever in your favor!

Fan Art Friday: Percy Jackson

I haven’t done any fan art for Percy Jackson much since I haven’t personally read the books just yet, but I figure I should share some artwork from the popular series anyway 🙂 So, enjoy! And thanks to juliajm15 for the featured image of Percy and Annabeth together. So beautiful ❤

Filmchild. I love this photo manipulation! It’s pretty dang awesome 🙂

Percy_Jackson_by_Filmchild

Jo-yumegari. The lighting is beautiful, and so is his swan dive! Shading is so great!

percy_jackson___dive_by_jo_yumegari-d5egou6

lostie815. D’awwww 🙂 Percy and Annabeth ❤ The water they’re in is absolutely stunning, down to the ripples at the bottom and the tiny bubbles above their bodies. I think everyone wants an underwater kiss, but it’s hard to beat Percy and Annabeth’s 🙂

underwater_kiss_by_lostie815-d5g3rci

Flockelnc. Percy taking a bath! I’d definitely play with some water bending skills myself.

bath_time_with_percy_by_flockeinc-d5x9njg

MissySerendipity. Percy meets Finnick from Catching Fire. I thought it was amusing 🙂

percy_meets_finnick_by_missyserendipity-d4dv6at

pheonixefreet. Realistic water color painting! I mean, the realistic approach is stunning in itself, but in water color is even more impressive! Such a hard element to work with! I’m impressed.

percy_jackson_by_pheonixefreet-d4loq6k

MonsieArts. Can’t forget about Annabeth! I LOVE her hair! And her face is stunning.

annabeth_chase_by_monsiearts-d610hfo

SmartsPD. Awwwww. What are you thinking about there, Percy? He is so cute. Why are you not real? WHY?

peter_johnson_by_smarspd-d55lh1u

Hope you enjoyed! Have a great summer, and take a dip in the water just like mister Percy 🙂

Keep on reading, and keep on drawing!

Fan Art Friday: Maximum Ride

 

Fan art Friday! This week I’m focusing on Maximum Ride as the main theme. Thanks to IAmEmilyK for the featured image! She used photoshop for her photo manipulation; cool, right? Super, epically awesome.

ashkatt. I LOVE Iggy’s wings! Bout time he got some recognition. And off to the side is little Ari; I love how they depicted him because so many people draw him so much older. He’s only seven or nine if I remember correctly!

 

a_flock_of_kids_by_ashnkatt-d3em5da.png

yukieiri22000. Always gotta love Fang without a shirt on 😉 I do very much love the background as well though, it looks so peaceful!fang_water_bathing_by_yukieiri22000-d3f02i7

gemmafm. Little Angel when they first discover that she can breathe under water. I’m not sure what I love more, Angel herself, or the details of the water! Super realistic and beautiful colors! And that little face! I also love how little droplets of water are dripping from her bottom feathers.

Soaked_by_Count_Altenburg

snf3000. I love this angle of Fang, it’s so different! The lighting is just stunning, and I love how he’s standing on the edge of a cliff! Super awesome!

maximum_ride__the_precipice_by_snf3000-d3ayuu7

Greenticky. Angel when she first gets captured. I am just absolutely mesmerized by her wings! Amazing!

64d5ed0352a57bf44ca21db3c0e28826-d3gdbjz

Follyfoot. Max’s wings here are done really well, that’s what I love so much about it! And the little blood splots around the whole thing? Awesome.

maximum_ride_by_follyfoot-d51n3yq

laurastellinamia. Dylan…*drools, drools a lot* At first I hated his character, but I grew to like him. I love all the details this artist gives! The shading and his expression is pretty much to die for.

dylan_maximum_ride_by_laurastellinamia-d5a0kt9

seanfarislover. So many people! AH! Fang’s gang and the Flock. The artist added in their description that they loved Iggy with a bowtie in “Nevermore” so that’s why he has one 🙂 It looks like this one took so much work!

maximum_ride__fang__s_gang_vs_the_flock_by_seanfarislover-d5beqwe

sbrigs. Dylan again! I mainly like the look on his face ^_^ Great detail overall!

the_new_bird_kid_by_chunks21-d5xueo2.png

 

beforethedarkness. To end the artwork, why not end it with a FANG. Instead of ending it with a bang? Get it? Anyway…

Love the expression on his face and the scars on his side! Reminds me of the battle on the beach. And, yeah, Fang is also topless and that’s never something to complain about 🙂

Fang is Awesome

So I’m working on a new painting which I’ll feature here once I’m done, since I’m doing Maximum Ride. In the process of looking up the lettering for the Maximum Ride novels, I was just scrolling down Google and ran across this AWESOME drawing of Fang.

So, thank you jennybunbuns on deviantART for this great drawing of Fang. Such great detail, and the wings are so fabulous! Excuse me while I swoon over him…

Fan Art: Catching Fire

So, I haven’t put up fan art for The Hunger Games in forever. And what better art to post up than Catching Fire themed ones, eh?

Thanks for the featured image done by Waffles!

I have another post focused on fan art for Catching Fire, which you can check out here

Verlisaerys. I love the background colors in this one. It’s fire-esque, but it’s also endearing.

catching_fire_just_hold_me_by_verlisaerys-d4uhgcj

 The next three are by kara-lija. Love all of their faces in this one, especially Katniss’. The fire of the forest down below adds a lot of extra texture to look at!

catching_fire____by_kara_lija-d4uod1o

Awww 🙂 They look so much at peace with one another. Just breathing in each other’s lives.

a_different_kind_of_hunger____by_kara_lija-d3f0su7

Ooooooh! Love how the fire is contributed here, as well as the city. Katniss looks so strong!

theant4. So realistic! Stunning!

mseregon. Gale and Katniss in the beginning of the book! For some reason I really like Gale’s face in this one. And his hair, I wanna touch it. Is that weird?

Love the sunlight breaking through as well. Beautiful.

hunger_games__catching_fire__chapter_2_by_mseregon-d4q7bfn

elbarien. Katniss’ face is stunning! I love the angle of the bow and arrow; please don’t shoot me! And I love how the Hunger Games pin at the bottom is smoking like it’s slightly burning as well. Awesome!

SilkSpectrell. Katniss and Peeta protecting each other!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everybody! And thanks for the cover photo by daekazu on deviantART! All my art will be from there 🙂

For this halloween I decided to snatch some fan art from some novels just for this holiday! But first I’d like to quote a part of my own novel since it briefly covers halloween, and it can bring a good laugh. Plus I’m planning to self publish them soon, so might as well get some word out there 🙂

” ‘Hey, look! There’s another person wearing wings!’ Evelyn exclaims.

So, I don’t carry a calendar with me everywhere I go, but apparently today is Halloween. Go figure. So now we just blend in that much easier. I don’t see the point in Halloween quite honestly. Hey, lets knock on strangers’ doors and beg for candy! If I knocked on a stranger’s door, high chance some Omega–or werewolf, for the common folk–will be hiding behind it, or some other weirdo out to kill me. Good teaching of your children, people, to go knock on peoples’ doors for candy. What a stupid holiday. Or maybe I’m just pissy because I never celebrated one holiday my whole life. I don’t even know when my own birthday is. Bleh, I’m rambling. Moving on.

‘I’m hungry,’ Trevor says as he turns his head while a girl in a miniskirt walks by.

I punch him in the arm and hiss, ‘Stop that.’

‘What? She had nachos. Why, was she hot?’ he asks and turns his head again. ‘Nah, she needs to shave.’ ”

And there you go! Now for some fan art for Halloween 🙂

First up is Maximum Ride

Tallstones. Gazzy’s eyes are EPIC.

FizzyXIII

Next is Percy Jackson

MissySerendipity

Bleunite

Next is Hunger Games

AlmightyKee draws costume for district three!

CrocodileLove draws Finnick and Annie. Ah 🙂

And now for the best book series for Halloween: Harry potter

Ha! 🙂 Kuko-chan

Happy Halloween everybody! Have a great one 🙂
