Arting from A Time To Speak
I realized that one of my current favourite book series had no fan art to go with it, other than one sketch of the most horrible character in the whole book. (the character is horrible not the sketch) And so I set out to remedy the fact, that these amazing books lack fan art. This one is from a scene in book two A Time To Speak, by Nadine Brandes. And yes you should read the books.
If you are interested in seeing some before images than just keep on looking. I did actually remember to take a snapshot of the Photoshop document after I had done the base colours. So you can see what I started with. I also kinda cheated with some colours and used a colour picker to seal them from the book covers, so they were at least colours from there.
This scene came to my mind instantly when I was trying to think of one to draw, I think it is one my my favourites. As for the quotes they don't follow on from one another in the book but are spread over two pages, where this scene is happening. Hopefully I have managed to make it look cold enough.
And by the way the third and final book is coming out later this year, in 65 days! I am so excited I pre-ordered the book yesterday.
Have you ever drawn fan art?
Does the picture look cold?
Have you read any of Nadine Brandes books?
