Tomorrow marks the launch of Snow White! I can’t hear to say what you all think of it and the story it…goes over. Yeah, being a bit evasive here, but you’ll understand when you read it!
Today we’re going to go over some truly AWESOME fanart from you amazing Champions, but I did want to make an announcement! I’m throwing a Facebook event/party with the famous Lindsay Buroker to celebrate atypical heroines!
The event starts at 7 PM central or 5 PM PST. (I have to say figuring out time zones for all my different events has been a nightmare so I actually messed up the timezone in my newsletter, these are the correct timezones!) Just click HERE to visit the event’s page so you can join us for a night of games, chatting, and free books!
But now, onto the fanart!
This time we have several pieces of art that represent the first time a particular character has received any fan art so I’m super excited! If anyone has fan art you want to send to me to be posted on the website you can fill out the contact form and send me a link to your work. I’d love to see it! (Otherwise if you need to attach it to an email, just fill out the form and I’ll respond back so you’ll have my email. Gotta outsmart those email bots!)
Eleniel created two pieces that are a “first” in the gallery! The first is a fan art of Dima (one of the members of the Black Swan Smugglers in Swan Lake). The second is a fan art of Tari from Elves of Lessa (or Tarinthali as her full name is). While I really like the art for Tari as Eleniel captured elven elegance perfectly…Dima is just TOO CUTE!!! And the shading on his feathers and the coloring of his cute little eyes and bill? You just wanna cuddle him! (And his quote only makes it that much more fun!!)
Some of you have made some characters using the Azelas Dolls program as I mentioned in a previous post. Feel free to share them with everyone on Discord! Here’s one from HobbitLady97 of Gwendafyn from the Elves of Lessa series. (She totally nailed her–she got the eyes and the hair obviously, but that smile! Yeah, that’s Fyn alright.)
This is another cute Second Age of Retha fan art by Jess Wurms and this is the first time Solus Miles has ever been in a fan art. (Yes they do look this adorable when they sit together!) Jess obviously did a great job, but I think my favorite part is Kit’s expression. (Poor girl deserves to be happy after all she’s been dragged through!)
Thanks to Hobbitlady97 for not only creating the first fan art of Gabrielle but also the first fan art of Puss! She even got his half mustache correct! (Note that Puss is a little disgruntled that it has taken so long for someone to capture his majesty in art. Nevertheless, he approves greatly since Hobbitlady97 took the time to get all the little details right.)
Here’s another Second Age of Retha fan art, this time it’s by Sonia and it shows off Kit’s fancy outfits – I love that Sonia included Kit’s fans in this image! And she certainly captured the draping sleeves/skirts and lack of stomach-coverage all of Kit’s outfits embrace. Awesome job!
Next up we have two fan arts by Elizabeth. The first features Elle from Beauty in the Beast in the famous rose colored dress! Excellent choice, Elizabeth, and also beautifully done! The second is a hilarious comic art of Pax and Kitten Lovemuch from Second Age of Retha. I laughed so hard when I first saw this – the sunglasses on Pax make it that much more perfect, it’s just pure gold!!
I realize this photo isn’t technically a “fanart” but I was so honored that Kiara and Sarah decided to dress up as some of my characters (Rakel and Phile) that I just had to share it! While they had some great attention to details (Phile’s bandanna makes me so happy) I think what really makes this special is that they’re friends dressed up as Rakel and Phile–who have probably one of the strongest friendships in my entire series. It’s really humbling to see how you guys can turn words in a book into amazing things–whether it’s art or costumes!
(Which, I should mention, if anyone else dresses up as a character I’ve written, PLEASE share it with me as I’d love to see it!)
That’s all we have room for today. A big thank you to all the champions who sent in their artwork, and another thank you to all of you Champions who took the time to read this! 😉 Remember, check out my Christmas Event under the “for champions” tab on the website–because the fun starts TOMORROW!
