Somewhat Unseen University

By HanieMohd
Okay, this may not be the Unseen University that you're accustomed to (as per illustrations by Josh Kirby/ Paul Kidby) - rather, it's my own interpretation and inspired by the building itself in SkyOne's Hogfather TV movie. It's more of what I see in my mind when I read about UU and the wizards residing within (ok, I'll draw wizards next time XD) - reinforced by the opening scene in the TV movie (gorgeous shot of the UU against a huge full moon overlooking Ankh-Morpork) - which also looks exactly like how I've always imagined it to be.

GAH! Sorry for the long windedness. And sorry for the super crappy lineart! I was trying out a brushpen when this came out - and I've always been impatient when I draw so..yeah, the lineart's really kinda rushed.

Drawn with a brushpen, scanned and coloured in good ol' Photoshop.

Unseen University and Inept Wizards residing within are part of the Discworld series created by the awesome Terry Prachett and this is just a fanart by a huge Prachett fan so please don't kill, maim or sue. Thanks!

I like your colours, and the stars. Also the city lights. Nice touch with the reflection in the lake. The UU is towering and humongous over the miniscule buildings.

wow. I think this look really well done.
grats to you for it.
I think my interpritation of the UU is bigger, and surrounded by a massive round wall. O.o I would never have the patiance to do that though.
HanieMohd's avatar
aaaaaaah I wish I can do something like that! Alas my knowledge of architectural structure is lacking T___T

and yeah... I'm darned impatient too XD
Chill-morte's avatar

HanieMohd's avatar
