Nehemia and Celaena are awesome by walkingnorth Nehemia and Celaena are awesome by walkingnorth
Trying out cell-shading, because every time I tried painting this it seemed to lose all sense of movement.
This was actually heaps of fun, I may cell-shade more often :)

(Also, sorry about the uninspired title, but what can I say, these two are awesome! I hope they get to spend heaps of time together in Crown of Midnight.)

I don't know if it's because I'd already read it and forgot that part, but I always imagined Nehemia with dark skin. I approve of this. :nod:

I think heart-wrenching is too tame a word XD I don't remember the last time a book left me so completely shattered. *cries*

You should, it's so much fun <3
(I am biased though, I really really like high fantasy.)

There's actually a free prequel short story available for world book day. [link]
I don't know if it works internationally but you could give it a try :)

I always Imagined Nehemia to be unnaturally white: resembling snow queen

walkingnorth Featured By Owner May 21, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Really? The first time we meet her she's described as having brown skin :)
Elena's the one I see resembling a snow queen, all pale and ghostly and silvery-blue.

Sometimes my imagination spirals in wrong direction, and I end up remembering a thing that differs from original massively.
Almost all of the characters in TOG were pearly white (in my mind): maybe my mind tried to blend them with the glass castle?
I must re imagine it... Crown of Midnight is coming.

I do that sometimes. Before I draw fanart I always look the characters up on google, or skim through the book, just in case I get it all wrong.
(During my Throne of Glass skim I discovered that Nehemia wears her hair in lots of little braids and I had to change the initial sketch for this XD).

And yes, I can't wait for Crown of Midnight <33

(Ah, sorry! I think you may have told me before and I forgot....)

Well, The Lunar Chronicles is four books, so we've still got Winter coming in 2014. And I think Sarah J. Maas said that the ToG series will be 6 books, so there should be plenty of amazing books to read in the future :)
*thinks positive*

I, um, had no idea how to draw a battle scene so I defaulted to random dramatic mist XD
