This is amazing. You know, its really funny, because int he book, he never really gets blood on his hands (just on his shoe and the back of his head if my memory is correct), but in his mind, it's always there.
This really is wonderful. It's one of the better fan arts I've seen here. Bravo for a job well done!

I think he gnaws on his hands at some point during Mazer's training.

But that's self inflicted and just because he's stressed out, so it's kind of innocent. But it's still a very good metaphor for what he did unknowingly in the book and then later found out about it.

Oh yeah. I just meant that if you're talking about actual blood, his hands actually bled. During a dream about the buggers, I think, actually. That part of the book was a good metaphor in and of itself.
I love this picture as a reminder that Ender was just a kid who ended up with blood on his hands, both as a metaphor within the book and outside of it.

Thanks! I love the Ender series and had a lot of fun with this. I 'm glad that my interpretation of Ender makes other fans happy too.
InnocentWaffle's avatar
Are you going to do more fan art?
I would love to see some!
NinjaMonkeyBoyX's avatar
Oh I've been known to draw and Ender-verse illustration or two. I'll have to cook up another good one to post :)
InnocentWaffle's avatar
Yay!!! Ill be looking froward to it. I love the series and I wish I could find more good fan art.

Wow... it's startling how you managed to capture both the killer instinct and the face of a young boy - something I had a tendency to forget about as I read Ender's Game. Brilliant!
NinjaMonkeyBoyX's avatar
thanks so much, I tried really hard to capture that, Glad you enjoyed it :)

This is awesome. I need to see more Ender stuff. I always forget how young he was, but this depicts him perfectly
