Finished in time for Emily Rodda to see! So happy about it too :la: :la: :la:

Okay so I'm meeting Emily Rodda tomorrow (sept 1st) and I wanted to do at least a little fanart for her to sign or look at :meow:

And we all know how much I love drawing and painting dragons so here is Doran the DragonLover or Dragon Friend as the Deltoran dragons refer to him as :la:

And he is with Fidelis, the topaz dragon :heart:

Hope you all like and I really hope Emily likes it too! :heart:

NERDGASM! That is awesome. I love Doran, and finally someone draws/paints him. About time! Thank you. You definitely made my day :D

You shold actually try to do a serious adaptation of the Deltora Quest series a graphic novel >.> If it have to be a web comic. I would love to help with that, as I am an aspiring sci-fi, fantasy, mystiscm writer :P

Emily Rododa / Jennifer June Rowe ftw :)

Stay creative,

I loved reading about Doran in the third series!
Oh.. I think if that was to happen I would have to ask the permission of Emily Rodda.

Thank you ^^ I'm planning to draw more Doran with the dragons

Any kind of fan fiction that are 100 % non-profit is always legal until the original create approaches you and asks you to stop. Besides, I am sure she is a strong supporter of such things. However, i you practising...who knows? Maybe some day, you'll make a legal official one (not like the manga that was produced with the anime) :D Would be great ;)
You can do it! ;)

Stay creative,

OMG You're meeting Emily Rodda? That's so exciting! I met her when I was too young to appreciate it...
This is gorgeous, they both look exactly as I imagined them. I think she'll love it.
