Breaking Dawn +Spoiler+ by Foxy-Lady-Jacqueline Breaking Dawn +Spoiler+ by Foxy-Lady-Jacqueline
I wish I could put the actual title of this drawing (which is "Waiting For The Volturi" but I thought I would warn people who are fans of the Twilight series (and haven't read or finished "Breaking Dawn" yet) because this is pretty much a spoiler. ;)

I haven't seen the movie yet. I have seen screenshots, though. I like who they picked to play Edward (because he's pretty much close to how I thought Edward looked) but the actress for Bella looks different [than how I imagined Bella]. But I say "To each their own!" I'm sure we all imagined the characters in our own way when reading the books. *3/30/09 Edit* I finally saw the movie the other night (my sister bought it) and I must say, I really did like it! Even though in the books I imagined Bella different than Kristen Stewart...Kristen Stewart really played a convincing Bella. I like who they chose as the other characters (such as the Cullens...perfect!) :)

I got the idea for this drawing from Chapter 35 ("Deadline"), page 676-677:
Now I fastened the thick gold rope around my neck and felt the weight of the enormous diamond nestle into the hollow of my throat.

"Pretty," Renesmee whispered. Then she wrapped her arms like a vise around my neck. I squeezed her against my chest. Interlocked this way, I carried her out of the tent and into the clearing.

Edward cocked one eyebrow as I approached, but other did not remark on my accessory or Renesmee's. He just put his arms tight around us both for one long moment and then, with a deep sigh, let us go."

These are my versions of the I saw them in my mind. Edward is described as being slim/lean, so that's how I made his body-type as I drew this. Descriptions for Bella are slim, dark brown hair (in B.Dawn, at one point it is described her hair is down to her waist near the end of the book), with a heart-shaped face...thus is why I drew her in such a way (because I imagined her as so).

Renesmee was more of a challenge to draw. I figured she would be the size of a three year old by the part of the book (since she was the size of a large 1 year old/small 2 year old a month before this particular event took place). Also, she was described as having more adult-like proportions & lean & graceful. As for how I drew her outfit, I drew it based on a few descriptions of what she wore in Chapter 35: :frilly, feminine, but sturdy; a jacket; and a black backpack.

I hope everybody likes this. :) And please, no anti-Twilight/Stephenie Meyer comments. Thanks.

This was drawn with a mechanical pencil & also HB and B4 graphite pencils. I also used a bit of white watercolour (for the lace on Renesmee's dress & the shine in the eyes of everybody). The background is screentone, done in Photoshop. I like how it came out!

Foxy-Lady-Jacqueline Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hello. :)

Thank you so much! I am very happy you like this. I'm not sure if I will be drawing any more Twilight art work. Trust me, I love the series. I would draw more if I had time, but I'm enrolled in Graduate school at the moment, so I don't have that much free time. Plus, I stopped submitting artwork to this gallery. I'm hoping that sometime by the end of this year, I will have made my own art site.

deadlysecret72 Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2010
oo :o if you ever do make the site give me the link :D

chezababes Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2010
i love how you have done renesmee
YunaSelda Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2009
That's kinda how I imagined Nessie.. The clothes and all.. And I really like the fact that Edward is slim contrary to Robert Pattinson, who I think could've lost some pounds for the role (and he shoulda made just a liitle bit of muscles, in stead of getting them drawn on his body)
Zareefe Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I love the shading on their hair. Very nice :)
ladymarytudor Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2009
Aws Nessie looks so small and adorable! I love her hair in this and the way she is clinging to Bella. Great family shot

I am happy that you like this. Thank you so much for the :+fav: on this (and my two other Twilight fan artworks as well). :iconthankyouplz:

I had a good time drawing these three. I rarely do pencils, but I am happy with how it came out. Pencils are really good for shading. :)

Breathtaking. I love this image.
Foxy-Lady-Jacqueline Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

I am happy that you like this! I loved drawing Edward, Bella, and Renesmee. It was also fun to draw something using only pencils. I hardly ever do that type of work, but when I do, it's quite the learning experience.
KonekoTsukino Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2009
You are very welcome! It's amazing what people can do with simply pencils, and you're proof of such talents.
Foxy-Lady-Jacqueline Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
That is a huge compliment for me. Thank you so much! That really does inspire me!
KonekoTsukino Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2009

I am very happy that you commented on this & like it. The Cullens are fun to draw, especially how I see them in my imagination.
