Disguise the scent by Kooskia Disguise the scent by Kooskia

This is the first of the two pair of fanart i've worked for the third book of the Named series. Ratha and the Thistlechaser.

I've greatly enjoyed the book for a number of things, especially the ending. I like sometimes bittersweet ending (as could have been the first two books), but a true warming and happy ending is sometimes much welcomed (especially because i was thrilled and in fear that was going to happens something during the last pages and i was very relieved).

The books themselves have a number of fun scenes. I've picked this one (with Thistlechaser forcing Thakur to roll on dung to cover his smell) enlarging a bit because in the book Aree is spared by Thakur himself.... here i've drawn the little treeling escaping just as she get a sniff at it...

(PS: it's strange how i keep experimenting different things with fanart about this series: usually i don't draw black eye surrounded by the proper colour of the eye, more often i did main colour surrounded by white).

This is great! I don't think I've seen much fan art about the fun/funny scenes in the books. I love it! rathacat did you see this?

Thank you! ^^ She saw and commented some of my first ones and it was really awesome ^^
Oh but i think there could be done more x3
I've finished to read few days ago Ratha's Courage... and honestly there are awesome scenes for tons of this kind of silly fancomics xD I'm just sad that i can't make cool arts about the true plot and all the great moments of drama and fight...

Sometimes I envy people who have such imagination and are able to draw or write such interesting ideas.

This is just the case.

No envy needed x3 I'm not so skilled and credit to the original story it's for the author herself of the book ^^
I just hope to make smile fans or let people know some new series ^^
You read the books?

It's not about the skill.

The imagination. You read the book. Me too (All of them). You had this idea. I haven't :D

Awesome! x3 (but i got the Kindle ones with the cool cover Xp)
Hehe but one needs to be a bit crazy to make them xD
I've finished the fourth one in few days ^^ And i will start the Fifth one possibly today...

But the fourth one doesn't have much scenes that can be made fun xD I mean... it's an awesome book, but i don't know the kind of parodies i could do..

However i like your gallery x3 you've a Named OC? 
I would like to make some kind of roleplay first or later, but there aren't many Named OCs
