Happy Tuesday everyone! One of my favorite book badasses Manon Blackbeak! :D She’s a character from  Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass book serie, hope you guys like it. Added a bit more FX then what I usually do for these color sketches, trying to hit a balance between speed and niceness.

My favourite ACOMAF moment is when Feyre first visits the Illyrian camp and Rhys is threatening the leader and you completely expect him to say something like “don’t hurt her because she’s under my protection”, which would imply she’s an easy target. But Rhys immediately establishes Feyre as being capable of protecting herself. That was such an important moment, because he let her take back the power that Tamlin had taken away from her. I remember reading it for the first time and being so surprised and impressed.


“Aware of every breath, every movement, I sat in his lap. His hands braced my hips as I studied his face. "And now I want you to know, Rhysand, that I love you. I want you to know…” His lips trembled, and I brushed away the tear that escaped down his cheek. “I want you to know,” I whispered, “that I am broken and healing, but every piece of my heart belongs to you. And I am honored - honored to be your mate.”

Preliminary sketch for the above passage.

  • Rowan: A talking door knocker? How did you react?
  • Aelin: Oh, I guess I was... MORTified.
  • Rowan: ...
  • Aelin: ...

  • Rowan *opens window*: Throw yourself out.
Feyre's Payback

If Feyre doesn’t send Rhys and image of her in ACOWAR that makes him run into a door frame while Cassian and Az are with him, making them laugh their asses off I’ll be very disappointed. I think he needs a little payback for making her run into a staircase post while she was supposedly trying “lacy underthings” on for him
