This is a different post from what I usually post here on my blog. Some of you don’t know that I love art and I create it as a way to pass the time. Although I love art, I’ve never seen myself as much of an artist. But when I decided to created fan arts based from books I love, I realized that art is a great way to express yourself without needing to use words. A single piece of art can speak a thousand words. Possibly more.
An author messaged me to review her book. It wasn’t perfect, but it was Fantasy (y’all know how much of a fantasy fanatic I am) and I love it! So I decided to brave the seas (not literally haha) and just go with my guts. I picked up my watercolor kit and began to do it. Nothing was planned, and although my artwork far from being one of the best, I’m still proud of the outcome.
On December 30th I posted a review for OverRuled by Brittney Joy. I enjoyed it and to express my gratitude to the author, I decided to create fan art!
Other materials used: Dong-A My Gel tec 0.4 (Black), Sharpie Permanent Marker (Gold Metallic)
I really hope you enjoy this fan art! If you want to check out the book, you can view it on Goodreads here.
Two girls. One Kingdom. No way out..
Princess. Royal. Prisoner. Jade is the heir to the throne, but her mother, the Queen, isn’t willing to give up her title— ever. Queen Katrina doesn’t see her daughter as her legacy, but as a threat that has to be stopped. Jade has never left the palace, and is trapped inside its boundaries… but she wonders if the walls are meant to keep her safe, or keep her imprisoned.
Peasant. Pauper. Savior. Nova left the Kingdom of Sterling before she could crawl— now that she’s returned with her father to rescue her orphaned cousin, it’s nothing short of a nightmare. Magic is used to control the people, and the monarchy is a dictatorship. Within the kingdom, Nova is hunted for a power she doesn’t even know she has… yet.
One boy will intertwine their lives— or tear them apart. Chael is the secretive and handsome royal guard that might have the answers to save both girls, but he’s hiding something dark. An ally with questionable motives, both Nova and Jade have no choice but to trust Chael… and to fall for him.
But the lengths the Queen will employ to secure her crown are unforgivable. In the Kingdom of Sterling, the only thing more powerful than betrayal is magic.
I hope you enjoyed this little artwork I made! I think I’m going to post more fan arts in the future, so stay tuned.
