Fly By Night

Mosca Mye,Eponymous Clent,and Saracen from Fly By Night, a novel by Frances Hardinge.

Well, actually Eponymous Clent is a fatty middle-aged man who wore a curly wig like in Victoria's era.
BUT in my imagination, he's a twenty or thirty-something guy and wore no wigs :iconotlplz: so I drew him like that.
And I think he's old enough to be Mosca's uncle, though.
Conclusion: total fail fanart. AAAAH :iconfffuuuplz:

Fly By Night is an excellent book, a must-read book! :D

I imagined Clent the same way, and no matter HOW many times I reread it I can't change my image of him XD
BUT anyway I've seen and loved this picture since before I had a dA account but for some reason I had yet to favorite it even after being on here for two years?? I don't even know haha
It's not how I see the characters, but it's your interpretation and it's very nicely drawn.  And I gather Frances likes it.   Which is very cool.

Btw, totally agree with you about 'Fly By Night' being an excellent book.  Also it's sequel 'Twilight Robbery' (a.k.a. 'Fly Trap.')

Oh, AWESOME! 
It's scary how that is exactly how I pictured Clent. O_o
My favorite characters in Fly By Night were Linden Kohlrabi, Hopewood Pertellis, Black Captain Blythe, and Clent. Mostly Kohlrabi, though.

awwww I'm really glad you like it! It's been a really long time since I read the book, but guess I'm gonna re-read it again XD

I'm rereading it right now, actually! 
Oh, Kohlrabi...why did you have to be insane...

Have you read Twilight Robbery?? It's equally amazing! I love little Mosca - and I agree until I read the description of Eponymous Clent I had in my mind he'd be this Young looking dude....still awesome artwork though - not a total fail :D

Rock on!

I like your design, but I kind of liked fat old Clent more, it was his incapability for his position that kept him so fresh and funny, I also find it easier to create an image of a plump somewhat fancy man trying to persuade black captain blythe than one of a slender blonde young man conversing with the highwayman

I imagined epnymous in the exact same way! In my mind he was some cute young poet and theif. I hate how in the second book the illustrator drew him as an ugly old man on the cover. Pretty much ruined how i thought he looked like.
Shirisaa-Chan's avatar
lol. if eponymous looked like how we imagined him i'd be a weirdo with a virtual crush x) do you happen to know which beloved you were born under? frances told me I was born under goodlady dawnsmile.

Honestly, I've always had a hard time connecting "Notorious criminal", "Poet and storyteller", and "Spy" with "Fat dude in a wig". From now on, THIS how I'm going to picture Eponymous.

hahaha I'm glad he fits your mind :iconleleleplz:
