I know! My heart is shattered into tiny little pieces!
And thank you :)
To be honest, I'm not quite sure how dark Magnus should be. Clary describes him as having golden skin but Tessa describes his skin as brown. I think he is probably darker skinned than Godfrey Gao - after all, Magnus is of Indonesian descent and he's had a lot of time to build up a tan! That said, I did draw him pretty dark here, probably darker than I picture him. I wanted to emphasize the contrast between Magnus and Alec. I really like emphasizing the difference between couples, I don't know why, it's just something I really enjoy.
Ack, really? I'm so sorry! I'll go stick a spoiler warning before the description!
Thank you for the lovely comment though <33
Regarding Magnus - I initially pictured him as looking Japanese (probably because of his fashion sense!) but I've been revising my mental image since we found out that he's half Indonesian. I also really like emphasizing the differences in couples, so since Alec is pale I like drawing Magnus really dark :)
it is okay, I mean currently I am reading the ASOIAF books and I pretty much know what will come due to spoilering
Well I guess everyone portrays each character in his/her own way but I guess that I always pictured Magnus with a skin complexion of yellow and a little brown But since you use only some tones of colors it is only reasonable to portray him so dark
Oh trust me some twists ARE shocking, I mean sometimes I read and go like " DAFUQ?" and my parents stare at me
I don't like the movie Clary. Especially the way the portray her. She wears tights and high heels and corsets. WHO? Clary. They made her look hot and thus she goes even more to the spotlight while Izzy was supposed to be the hot one. Actually, Izzy IS the hot one, but anyway -__- Generally the cast is not what I've dreamed off...though I cannot say that having such a hot Valentine is a con in the movie
Hahaha, great series! GRRM does an amazing job setting us up to expect one thing and then stabbing the reader in the back XD
I know about the casting, it's such a pity. Is movie Izzy even taller than movie Clary? I'm sure the actresses will do an amazing job and it seems nitpicky to fuss over such a small detail but I thought that Clary being so much shorter than Izzy added a lot to the character dynamics...
The visuals in the trailer do look amazing though, and the characters do all look spectacularly sexy (even if they're not what I was expecting) so I'm tying to get used to the differences so I can relax and enjoy the movie :)
Yeah he does...He makes you think something like "Oh I see that is how things are..." for 3 or 4 books and then changes all that in just one page or one sentence...
I agree with you, I mean the book description of the character plays a huge role in the whole way of the setting and the plot and pretty much everything and perhaps Clare had something in her mind for making her characters look like that..
Yeah we should enjoy the movie from an aspect of watching a simple movie, and let aside the fact that it is a book turned into a movie...
Ah, I don't know. But if Simon and Izzy can sort it out, and Tessa and her partner can sort it out, I'm sure Alec and Magnus will too. Somehow! (I am totally in denial XD)
But really, whenever anyone gets into a serious relationship, there's no guarantee your partner will live as long as you - you never know when an accident will happen, or sickness will strike. For me, the biggest problem for Malec is the (pretty massive) age gap, along with Alec's jealousy issues and Magnus's secrecy issues. If they can just learn to trust each other a little more then everything should (hopefully) be fine :)
That's another thing that's keeping them apart, the secrecy and jealousy. Hopefully they'll work that out. I'm not too worried about the age gap, that,to me, doesn't really bother me. Maturity maybe. And it's ok, I'm in denial as well XD
