queen covers

Heir of Fire alternative cover. The art belongs to the one and only @charliebowater . She is one of my favourite artists and I absolutely adore how alive feel the characters she recreates. I believe that this one is not part of her ToG paintings but when I saw it I could not stop thinking about Aelin in HoF. The atmosphere of the painting is a reflection of Aelin’s heart. In HoF she is in a very dark place, almost like she is drowning but she fights for herself and in the end, she finds her light - her fire and Rowan, and herself. She is the fireheart we all love.


I myself have fallen down the “heathers videos on YouTube” rabbit hole sooo many times. But if for some reason you haven’t (or you’re new to the musical) these are my top 13 favorite videos on the tube that feature heathers. Some of these are OBC and some are other productions. I’ve literally probably watched all these videos like 5 times in their entirety. Enjoy.

Congrats! You have been heathers educated. But for real, just listen to the cast album and you’re good to go. This is useful for late night video binging, though.

The last one. Empire of Storms alternative cover. Art by @uponadaydreamer .This is how I imagine Aelin when Deanna got over her body. One of the best paintings of our fireheart I have seen.

Look forward to the Acotar covers..

A ToG cover that I made. Disclaimer - the art is not mine, it belongs to @bloodydamnit . I would like to thank her for this amazing version of Aelin. I have made this cover only for my personal usage, but I decided to show it to you guys! Actually, I have covers for all of the SJM books. Expect the rest later…

I had this composition in mind for like a week, for a possible future cover-art. At first I wanted to do it digitally, but since it wasn’t masochist enough I decided to do it with traditional media (watercolours, copic markers and gouache). So now I have terrible cramps in my wirst, but I feel so proud of the result.

Manon Blackbeak - Throne of Glass

I just finished Queen of Shadows and all the feels. Had to draw my fave, Manon, the badass Ironteeth witch, whom I’m sure will fuck over anyone who tries to hurt her beloved witches again. And Elide. God I need her to reunite with Elide and make sweet love to her. And Abraxos is a cutie pie I want him safe and sound and smelling flowers forever.
