Love how the landscape creates such an atmosphere in this picture

This is really one of my absolute favourite paintings of Beka! It looks amazing. :)

Thank you so much! <3
I like this *very* much!  Not just the detail and the overall, but her expression--thoughtful and closed against trespassers.  Also, nice work on the spinner--they're hard!

Thank you! I had some difficulty with the spinner, but overall I had a blast with the painting. It was great to get some practice with backgrounds.

This is great! I love the spikes in her hair and her outfit! :)

Thanks! I had lots of fun painting those aspects of her character! :3

Beka! I don't often see fanart of her, so this was a pleasant surprise. Nice work! I like that you put the spikes in her braid - that's always been a favorite detail of mine - although somehow I had Beka down in my head as a brunette. Maybe I should go reread the books...yeah, that's a good idea...

Thank you! The spikes are my favorite too. I definitely understand the brunette thing, I see her like that too in my head.

Beka's hair color always seems to be up for debate. Ive see red headed, strawberry blonde, brunette, and blonde XD.

I think the model on the U.S. covers sort of throws things off for people? I often envision the main character based on a book cover, even if the cover and the description are at odds.
immortalrae's avatar
yes I think that's a big problem for it. the U.S. covers confused everyone.

i always imagined her with hair red an then i read that its blonde and i get thrown back for a moment .. then i forget and think shes a red head again XD
immortalrae's avatar
Me too so I settled for strawberry blonde in my head xD
Tairn's avatar
lol yea i settled somewhere between orange and strawberry blonde .. more often its more orange tho.. never deep red or brown tho
immortalrae's avatar
yeah I leave it light rather then dark. I think it looks better with how her eyes are described too
Tairn's avatar
this is true ^_^ now i want to go read them again... well i half way through Bloodhound... i should finish it again ... >.>
immortalrae's avatar
lol I know talking about it has made me want to go read it again too xD that's always the way with tamora pierces books
