LEGEND - June Iparis

Legend is now available for pre-order: [link]

This is probably the closest I've ever gotten to drawing June accurately. I should've made her hair a wee bit darker, but oh well. Here she's probably listening in on some dastardly conversation, or something.... :)


Legend (book 1 of my trilogy being published by Penguin) takes place in a dark future, when the United States has split into two warring countries: the western Republic, and the eastern Colonies. It tells the story of a famous 15-yr old boy criminal named Day vs. a 15-yr old girl detective prodigy named June, and is coming out on Nov. 29 of this year. You'll be able to find it in all bookstores as well as on Amazon, etc. Legend has also been optioned for film by CBS Films and Twilight's production company, Temple Hill!

June's is so beautiful. She is such an independent and strong character even after her brother dies. Reading Champion currently and it is freaking awesome :)

I love love love Legend, but there were some parts that seemed Hunger Gamesish...they were wee little things that can be overlooked but now this drawing of June looks a bit too much like a Katniss :/ I know you're the other, but I never imagined June with bangs. To me it doesn't suit her since she's a soldier and not so girly girly. And the bangs seem too katniss-ey sorry

Just want to say, I love your book! Finished reading it today and almost fainted at the end:) And this is exactly how I pictured June, but with her hair closer to black than brown.
