The Power of Five by Lightning--Strikes The Power of Five by Lightning--Strikes
Just practicing how I draw faces and so I decided to draw the characters of my favourite book series The Power of Five/The Gatekeepers by Anthony Horowitz

Top is Scott and Scarlett.
Middle is Matt (I know, he's meant to have black hair but I got lazy)
Bottom is Jamie and Pedro

I'll write more later

edit: Here's the more now.

I remembering reading this series when I was 14. The main characters are 14 (I think 15 in the third and fourth book) and I could really relate to them. Er not experience wise since I was never sent to the middle of Peru, get meddled into witches and the dark forces but what those kids feel felt were pretty real to me.
I think for about two years now I'm waiting for the final fifth installment. Gosh, I need to re-read this series to get my mind refreshed.

Wow, that's actually exactly how I imagined them ! I never though I would find picture of them here. You have a very nice art styleLove. I just finished Oblivion, and I haven't read such mind-blowing book series since along time. I also would like to know if I could borrow some of your drawings to illustrate an article for my Tumblr blog ? If you allow me to do so, is there anyway I can give you credits ?

*Spoilers*
I just finished reading Oblivion this evening. Oh man, I cried. At Matt's death, at Scott's death. DAMN YOU, HOROWITZ. _ Still...as my sister pointed out, his death was sort of perfect...even Richard's role in it. And am I the only one mourning the fact that Jamie left Holly? I was probably also the only one reading the book, thinking 'I hope these two will end up together...and that the world is saved too, I guess'.
Anyway, it was fabulous. Depressing as hell, but fabulous. And so is your picture. I love their expressions and how Jamie and Scott are looking at each other and everything.
Anyway. I could sit here and write an entire essay about the series and this picture, but I won't for fear of boring you.
Have a nice day :) (that is, if nice days can exist in the aftermath of finishing Po5 :l)

Yeah the ending was quite bleak but it was realistic. It wasn't as joyous like it was 10,000 years ago with the original five.
I KNOW SCOTT'S DEATH WAS JUST.... although I expected Matt's to die. BUT NOT SCOTT.

At least Holly still connected with Jamie through their dreamland place!

Thank you for writing so much for a silly sketch!

This looks awesome! I like how you made it so Jamie and Scott are looking up and down each other, i have no idea what Pedro is looking at.Maybe he's having a moment?Also MATT NOOOOOOOOO!!!How could he kill him off?I think it should be ilegal to kill off the main and most loved character!At least my favorite 2nd favorite character (sweet adorable Pedro) made it and I think Jonas Mortlake was a pedophile and maybe Richard too.

I love the series so much but the end..... ;_; WHY? I finished reading Oblivion in the car and was seriously considering chucking it out the window. That's how sad I was. IT'S SO SAD. EVERYONE LOVED MATT WITH ALL THEIR HEARTS, AND THEN ANTHONY JUST RUTHLESSLY KILLED HIM WITHOUT A SECOND THOUGHT. WHY? AND THE ANNOYING THING IS THAT ANYTHONY HOROWITZ IS STILL ONE OF MY FAVORITE AUTHORS. EVEN THOUGH I'M MAD AT HIM. -_-
Annnyways, you're welcome... :P

I remember when I first read the four first books, since the fifth and final wasn't made yet, I adored the story I actually have Nightrise beside me right now.

Matt looks hot :3 just saying ^^
and I like how you did the other four as well.

Have you tried asking your librarian to get a copy? My school library did that if there was a book a lot of people wanted to read.
