night and the fury

ACOTAR Fandom Life: Loving Rhysand
  • (What would happen if I met my Fairy Godmother)
  • Fairy Godmother: You could can have one wish, anything in the world. Like your dream job or your dream man!
  • Me: Hit me up with my dream man!
  • Fairy Godmother: *waves wand* *Man appears*
  • Me: *squints at the man* Wait
  • a second.... *sees no wings*
  • Me: *Doesn't see the sexiest high lord in existence* YOU'RE NOT RHYSAND.
  • Fairy Godmother: Well no, but-
  • Me: Send him back.
  • Fairy Godmother: Wait what? What do you mea-
  • Me: SEND. HIM. BACK.
  • Nick: Wouldn't you guess that the people who have seen the contents of that envelope might have a better idea of what makes someone a danger to his country, or do you think it should just be you, sir, who decides?
  • Tony: Who? Who? Who are these people, sir? Who are the people? Are they elected? Are they appointed? Do they have an axe to grind? Is it you?
Rhysand is much better than Tamlin
  • Feyre: I don't want to go live with you.
  • Tamlin: I don't care. You're coming with me or dying.
  • Rhysand: I waited until you called for me to come rescue you.
  • Feyre: I want to leave.
  • Tamlin: I don't care, you're staying. You're mine. I'll lock you in this house.
  • Rhysand: I'll teach you how to read and put up mental blocks until the week is up...and won't lock you in a house if we argue.
  • Feyre: I want to learn how to fight.
  • Tamlin: No. That sends a message.
  • Rhysand: *shouts over shoulder* Cassian! Come train Feyre how to fight!
  • Feyre: I want to go with you wherever it is you leave to.
  • Tamlin: No.
  • Rhysand: Okay. I'll personally winnow or fly you to wherever we're going to go.
  • Feyre: I don't want to wear these dumb dresses.
  • Tamlin: Suck it up. You're wearing them. Any other clothes send a message.
  • Rhysand: Okay. How do Illyrian fighting leathers sound? Night Court clothes? You're not a doll. You don't have to wear those dresses.
  • Feyre: When we're married will I be a High Lady?
  • Tamlin: There's no such thing as a High Lady.
  • Rhysand: "She is my mate. And my spy. And she is the High Lady of the Night Court." "Not consort, not wife. Feyre is High Lady of the Night Court."

A Court of Mist and Fury defaced ✨

Line-art done! Now onto colour ;)

I mean, I have serious squad envy right now LOOK HOW COOL THEY ARE. Sarah is insanely talented at designing characters!

I wanted to do an illustration of these characters that wasn’t about their sexual appeal. Don’t get me wrong, I like that part of the story too(!), but I think it’s often forgotten how powerful these characters are - I mean fuck, Amren isn’t even human. That’s just the form she takes!  And I wanted to celebrate that where they weren’t all dressed in skimpy clothing or running around half naked. I wanted them to look and feel like The Night Court, like you wouldn’t want to mess with them.

Anyway, rant over. I hope you guys appreciate why I chose to draw them like this <3

  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: the reveal of a court of wings and ruins cover was today, the sky is clear, the world is at peace and it's so pretty, feyre looks amazing and strong and looks like the high lady she was meant to be, the colour is also beautiful and we finally have a full body view of feyre and if rhys saw it he would be so proud, her dress screams night court tamlin can FUCK HIMSELF SHE'S GONNA RIP HIM TO SHREDS WHILE RHYS SUPPORTS HER I'M SO FUCKING READY FOR THIS BOOK TO BE RELEASED

A little snippet of my current WIP. More fan art for the amazing A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. I just love these two so much! *sobs*

There is sill a long way to go and a lot of tweaking to do. The full illustration–in full color–will be coming soon… ish.


UPDATE: Final illustration can be viewed here.
