The Gods Themselves by Fadri The Gods Themselves by Fadri
What's this?? Asimov's "The Gods Themselves" fanart??
Everything can be "fanarted"!! :XD:

The second part of this book is the best sci-fi story ever written :O, it's so good that I spontaneously came with this fanart months after reading the book. :P (The first part is original but not that great , and the third one is just plain weak :P).

In this picture we can see a slightly humanized interpretation of Dua (the Emotional), Odeen (the Rational), Tritt (the Parental) and Losten (the Hard One). :P


The Gods Themselves © Isaac Asimov

Uuuuh... So now... read the book if you didn't do it yet. :XD:

This is so cool. I've just read the book and immediately googled if someone visualized the para-men. Great story.

The foundation trilogy is amazing. Absolutely loved it. Just started the gods themselves and was hoping to find someone's visual interpretation of the paramen. This was interesting.

The Hard Ones are implied to basically be humans. Look carefully at how they're described.

This is the first Isaac Asimov novel I've read (I wanted to try something out before investing in the Foundation series) So far I'm in the second part, and I'm loving it so far. Tritt is exactly how I pictured him in my head.

I declare this image the finest work of "The Gods Themselves" fanart on DA.
Not that it means much.
Now make something based on "End of Eternity" and "Nightfall" too!

The second part is indeed the best. Well written, cool characters and plot, and the very ending actually made me gasp out loud. XD;

I still need to finish the third part...

I just finished the third part to see if they save the Sun and such. xD
But that part was a little dull... =__=

Yeah, and they solved the problem in like what? Two pages? I was just like "Uh-huh...uh-hu-...wait after a 200-something page build-up that's IT?!"

The ending made me cry a little for Dua...:cries:
Like Fadri said though, the third one is pretty bad, and not to mention made even worse than it is since the story that comes before it is so great.

Siempre me imaginé a los seres duros como humanoides. (eran seres duros? no me acuerdo ya) Pero bueno, me ha encantado el fanart, era de lo último de lo que me podía esperar un fanart, ciertamente.

Bueno, supongo que como mínimo tendrían brazos para manipular cosas, no como el piedro que he puesto yo, pero es que cada vez que leía "ser duro" me imaginaba una cosa como la que he puesto. xD
