Okay so this has irked me for a while - the first picture is some original artwork for the Artemis Fowl graphic novel, done by Giovanni Rigano and Paolo Lamanna. I like it and all, and it brings some of my favorite characters to life, but it’s just…. REALLY, REALLY INACCURATE. Holly’s supposed to have an auburn crew cut, a hooked nose, and dark skin (which is actually one of the very first things we learn about her in book 1, come on now). Artemis’s eyebrows look bigger than his eyes. And I’m not even going to get into Butler’s head-to-body ratio. Of course, no offense to the original artists, but this is how their characters are described in the book, and I was a bit disappointed in how the graphic novel of my favorite book turned out.
So I took it upon myself to kind of……fix it, as it were.
“But in all the stories, you have a single chance; and if you miss it, then it’s gone. The door isn’t there when you go back to look. There is no second invitation to the ball. This is my chance.” ― Holly Black, The Darkest Part of the Forest
HAPPY THANKSGIVING, FOWLDOM!!!!!! WHEW boy this thing took me almost a month to make! All of what you see was done in Photoshop CS6 and with a Wacom Fun tablet. Feel free to download any of these and spread the joy, as long as you credit me. (Edit - I made a landscape version for desktop wallpaper usage :D)
lol sorry for this, it’s so bad, i know, but my wacom isn’t woRKING PROPERLY plus it’s 2am and I’m sleepy af I don’t even know why I’m doing this. Probably bc I had to take this opportunity before anyone else did.
