I wish I was a more articulate person so that I could adequately describe just how much I freaking loved the book this painting is based on. I finished S. J. Maas 'A Court of Mist and Fury' around a week ago, and whilst I've kind of managed to function as a walking, talking human being during that time - in my head I have truly been off with the faeries. This book RUINED ME. It dragged me through the wringer, smashed my heart into a million little pieces and then gloriously and magnificently pieced it all together again. This is one of the most sorrowful yet JOYOUS books that I've ever read. I really can't describe how much this book made me feel, my heart is fit to burst! It has easily swooped in as my favourite book of all time and I don't say that lightly.
I've had a lot of book hangovers, but this is in a world of its own. Never have I ever loved a pair of characters (accompanying characters and their world included) as much as I have in this book. I can't even begin to process how S. J. Maas managed to weave together this wonderful tale. It's the second instalment in this particular series so it is kind of spoilery - apologies for that - but I couldn't help myself.
When something effects me this much, I have to paint it out. I REALLY dragged out my time on this painting, working on it as lovingly as I could - listening to F&TM Cosmic Love and Never Let Me Go pretty much on repeat. This. This is my humble offering at the feet of the mighty and majestic S. J. Maas. THANK YOU.
Please send help, because I have no clue how I'm going to survive the next year until the final book is out.
*SOBBING ON THE FLOOR* Just go on without me.... it's too late for me.
Cintiq & PS
I'm choosing to believe that Sarah J Maas is some sort of (unknowing) seer and is picking up on another dimension where Feyre and Rhysand both actually exist.
I felt exactly the same way! XD The second book has ruined me so much, yet I still loved every second of it! <3
You did an amazing job with those two and I thank you for this amazing piece of art! It truly shows how much they love each other! XD
Now I'm almost through with the first book and always look at your pictures and hope for this in the content. (Was confused because of Tamlin, that has something from 'The Beauty and the Beast', my favorite fairy tale and then I saw your pictures and thought, why is that another?) Now I have to wait a whole year until Part 2 is out . I hofef your pictures help me over this time.
Thanks for your inspiration and I could find such a great book. <3
Thank you for this.
I see you're from the UK. Do you ever display your art for sale at Comic Cons or YALC? You should, they're incredible.
AMAZING work! Would love to own a print of this for my wall <3
Had I discovered you before Leviosa, we might ahve been able to display your art work in the Art Gallery and she could have seen some of your work - if she hasn't already.
Love this rendition of them, and your beautiful use of color and light really evoke how Feyre talks about how she sees the world in her artistic eyes.
I keep re-reading it so I can hopefully...hopefully live till the next book. I AM THRILLED WITH THE FAN ART! *Fangirls.*
and also, I cried for an hour when I realized the next book comes out in a year.
(This book destroyed me, I swear.)
Can't wait for book three!!
