Uprooted - Agnieszka and Sarkan (+Process Video) by LiberLibelula Uprooted - Agnieszka and Sarkan (+Process Video) by LiberLibelula
How to Train your Dragon cofcof AAANYWAY! I read "Uprooted" by Naomi Novik, and enjoyed it inmensely. It was, to me, a masterpiece, full of action, a great mix of folktales with fresh tropes, and the heroine was so cool! So I wanted to thank the author doing a fanart of these two, Sarkan (The Dragon) and Agnieszka, as I imagined them. The setting was somehow Polish, so I got inspired in their fashion. (Yes, it took me two thirds of the book to realize that Polnya and Rosya were ways of saying Polonia and Russia. I'm dense, very dense).

I hope you like them!

I literally just finished reading this, as in put it in it's own little spot in one of my own numerous book shelves for next time bout ten minutes ago. It was wonderful, and you've captured both of them excellently. I also thought there were some routes in Polish so i'm glad someone else spotted it (and I also had to have the similarities of names pointed out to me, embarrassingly by my POLISH partner...though it shows how immersive the story was I guess!).

Me lo estaba releyendo y me encuentro tu dibujo, absolutamente genial :) Si te sirve de consuelo yo tampoco pillé lo de Rosya y Polnya, y en mi caso es lamentable porque hice estudios en letras eslavas xDDD

Me encanta que a pesar de ser unas poses estáticas, no lo parecen en absoluto porque se nota que Sarkan se quiere alejar de tal furia XD. Y las expresiones son de lo mejor.Clap

Oh my gosh I thought I was the only one who'd read "Uprooted"! I scrolled past this picture and then said to myself "wait, I feel like I know these people..." and when I checked the title...well, here I am admiring your lovely fanart. It reminded me of Diana Wynne Jones' stories, and that is a high compliment from me. I hope to see more work by the author in the future!

Fantastic work, I love the detail of the mismatched shoes, and the handprint on her skirt! And the pattern of the Dragon's...surcoat? vest? I know there's a word for that...lovely, very dragon-like indeed! And the expressions, of course: perfect!

("How to Train Your Dragon" indeed...giggle. Now I'm never going to be able to think of it as anything else!)

Ahahahaha thank you so much! It was quite a surprise, and I had never read anything by Novik before. It was just... so... active and meaty and entertaining :love:
Uff, deciding on the Dragon's clothes was the hardest part. I imagined him all in black, maybe with some whites... but it just didn't work when put on canvas, so I had to improvise XD

(By the way, since you recommended me some mermaid books, I recently finished a novel called "Monstrous Beauty", by Elizabeth Fama. It was gorgeous and so dramatic! Do you know it?)

You're welcome.

And YES. It's well written, isn't it?! It's up there on my own "gorgeous" list with Shanna Abe' and "The Last Mermaid." There are so few written like those 2!

I recently read "The Winter Sea" by Susanna Kearsley. It's not mermaid-related, but more a Scottish seaside novel about a woman having visions about living in a time long ago...... It was just as lovely.

Ooh, I love this! Once again, you have utilized your mastery of the human facial expression and delivered a perfect representation of their relationship all through scowling. I love how dynamic their poses are, and it's amazing to see all the detail that went into Agnieszka's dress. Llama Emoji-02 (Blush) [V1]
