Fan Art Friday (At Last!)

June 16th, 2012

It’s still Friday on the west coast of the US, so I give you Fan Art Friday, the technically not-late edition.

First, here’s a great video from Christina and Douglas, visualizing the Faceplay software from “Facing the Future” (Also known as Chapter 4 of Uglies).

Ugly to Pretty – WIP from Christina Hall on Vimeo.

Pretty cool, huh? I’ve always thought this would be a cool scene in the movie.

If my embed isn’t working for you, click here to check it out on Vimeo (and slightly bigger!).

And next, a very amusing cartoon from Soraia, riffing on the Perils of Pauline chapter in Goliath:

That whole chapter came about because I was researching William Randolph Hearst, and found out that he was behind the Perils of Pauline series of films, which began in 1914. So I decided to watch them, and discovered that in the very first one, the eponymous heroine gets blown away in a hydrogen balloon, not unlike a certain Scottish cross-dresser! So I just HAD to show Alek seeing the movie as part of his education that girls could do cool stuff.

Though I’d like to claim that I planned this symmetry between books 1 and 3 from the beginning, it’s merely a coincidence. But it proves that if you do your research, you will be rewarded. And coincidence or not, I’m super glad to see it pop up here in fan art form.

The dialog in this comic is quite funny, so click here to see it bigger and zoomable.

Here from Carly is some rare Midnighters fan art, showing Jessica at a certain climactic moment in Blue Noon.

That’s a scene that I had planned from back in book 1, as you will see if you look at chapter 4 of The Secret Hour. Sometimes I am good at first-shoeing things.

And here from MoonieBalloonie, a pensive-looking Lilit:

I always love how distinctive Lilit is, thanks to her cool Armenian attire.

And finally, from Victoria, some Dalek!

Okay, I’m headed to America soon, so I must go pack or whatever. (My only public appearance will be at Comic Con.)

Hope you all have a good weekend.

    Absolutely love the purple colour that Lilit was drawn in. Hey Scott, is there any chance you’ll be down in Melbourne, ever?

    Yeah I know this is my fourth comment but the video is AWESOME!

    @Nickywa: I always draw Lilit in purple! Alek is always red, and Deryn is always blue. Glad you like my technicolor-sketching, ahha.
    The video was incredible. “I’m going to be so pretty,” and the reveal that she looks absolutely nothing like her stereotypical disney-channel star designed image…. good, good stuff.
    And Scott, it is okay this is late. Because I sent that picture to you this morning, and if you had been on time, it wouldn’t have made it! haha

    Honestly – I think the ‘ugly’ version of the girl is way prettier than the ‘pretty’ version… :)

    And all the art is amazing, as always!

    But I’ll have to read it (the comic) on my computer cuz my iPod screen is too small… I think that’s the problem.

    That ugly to pretty video is so cool!! :D

    I LOVE that movie!!!

  12. 12
    June 16th, 2012 17:46

    AH HA! One of those pictures was drawn by hand!! SO IT IS POSSIBLE TO SEND A SKETCH TO SCOTT! DOES ANYONE KNOW EXACTLY HOW????
    I’ve heard about scanning it, but I don’t have scanner! I’m sure I could find one somewhere though, if that’s the only way…?

  13. 13
    June 16th, 2012 20:12

    Rue- Unless you really want to get a scanner, you may just have to take a pic of the art and upload it on your computer. Then click on “Contact Scott Westerfeld”, which is somewhere on the right and side of the page. You will be able to email him. Copy/Paste your art into the email, and, if you like, write a description. Then click “Send”!!!

  14. 14
    June 16th, 2012 20:14

    Also, Rue, you could always borrow a friend’s scanner.

  15. 15
    June 16th, 2012 20:15

    And one more thing- Some printers (like mine) double into scanners. If you have a printer, it may be a scanner and you haven’t even realized it!

    Could someone who can read the comic translate it for me, I mean tell me what it says, not translate it into another language? Pleeez?

  22. 22

    @21- Me too!!!

  23. 23
    June 17th, 2012 08:30

    the video is so cool
    but the words on the comic are too small

  24. 24
    June 17th, 2012 08:46

    The comic reads:

    “Your highness, could you come here? Your creature is disturbing Mr. Tesla.”

    “My eyes!”

    “Oh, sorry! Bov– Sorry!”

    Also, is anyone else getting the Midnighters fanart? I can’t see it on my browser.

    The art’s great though.

  33. 33
    June 18th, 2012 04:20

    Fixed the Midnighters art. It was TIFF file, which for some reason some of you can’t see. It is now a standard jpg.

    I’m gonna work on finishing up the Dr. Barlow drawing I’ve been sketching for months so I can send it in. Currently she has no head so it’s not quite ready.
    Also I had a question for Scott that I was gonna post early in the comments but I don’t remeber what it was. That’s okay, it was probably stupid. AND PLEASE NOBODY SAY “THERE ARE NO STUPID QUESTIONS” CUZ THAT’S JUST NOT TRUE!!!

  36. 36
    June 18th, 2012 05:29

    There are no stupid questions. ;)

    Darn. You don’t all get to see my Count Volger head. Maybe it didn’t send like it was supposed to? Hmmph.
    I’ve been gone for so long! Did you miss me? :D lol, just kidding. I’ve been at a girl’s college all week, and might I say it was AWESOME. Girls are so much nicer without boys around. They see others as friends and not competition.
    Anyway, though. HELLO!

    I still think there ARE stupid questions and I think people are mostly saying there aren’t to be contrary.

  46. 46
    June 19th, 2012 07:40

    There are no stupid questions as long as the qeustion has not been asked by the same person/group of people to prodigious amounts of repetition, is not specifically meant to annoy/ harass, or is a question everybody has to know by that age to live (i.e. a 30 year old asking if they have to breath.)

    @M@X. Today. I have it done and it’s on fanfiction, but I have to put it on my blog yet. And I need a computer for that, so I can’t now seeing as I’m on my phone.

    *takes a moment to remember what the las one was* Ah, yes. Because it had Max, then? Personally I liked this one better. Yogurt in coffee isn’t really that bad.

  57. 57

    I don’t like coffee.

    June 22nd, 2012 00:31

    Okay, just a question. On my blog, is eveything all smushed together into one giant paragraph? Because it looks that way from my phone, and I will try and fix it if it does for you, too.

  59. 59
    Middy Miles
    June 22nd, 2012 00:35

    I grudgingly accept the fact that some people do not like coffee, but that doesn’t mean I like it when people say it. So, in the future, one would be advised not to say anything contrary to the liking of coffee if they value their LIFE.
    *cough* ahem. And how are you today?

  60. 60
    June 22nd, 2012 04:17

I actually don’t know how to spell exited so yeah pardon me… WOOOO HOOOO!!!! UGLIES MOVIE!!!!!!! But I hope it’s not as crappy as Percy Jackson or whatever….

  79. 79
    June 26th, 2012 06:57

    1) This is old news.

    2) I thought they released the actors already.

    3) Percy Jackson is an awesome movie, you just can’t see it because your too hung up on it being exactley like the book. The movie on it’s own, judged for it’s own merits, is amazing.

    I have a theory, what if Scott Westerfeld was really from the future and he was Dr. Cable’s husband or brother of a sort and he wrote UPSE to warn us about the future, to not let it happen that way and he just told it from Tally’s perspective ???? (:
    WHAT IF?!?!?!

    It’s almost 1:00 in the morning and a car just drove by my house. I live in the middle of nowhere, 40 minutes from any reasonable population and a car just drove by??? A dunno, I guess I find this just the slightest bit creepy. AND THERE GOES ANOHER ONE!!! IT’S FRIGGIN 1:00 IN THE MORNING PEOPLE!! WHAT IS THERE?? SOME KIND OF NOCTURNAL CONVENTION GOING ON? Sorry, haven’t slept in over 24(ish) hours. I should probably get to sleep (finally!). Speaking of which (sorta) I think I’ll get a really good night sleep then see how long I can stay awake.

    Wow, I’ve missed quite a lot. Since I’m too lazy to scroll up to find the comments I want to reply to, I’ll just reply to the ones I remember, without numbers or most likely who they’re directed at. Sorry for any inconvenience :)

    First off, I fixed the chapter on my blog. It’s all better now!

    As for the black coffee, no sugar, I agree. And with the 7 cups within an hour… been there done that. Several times…

    As for the “if you hate when people say they hate coffee then why’d you make Deryn say it?” thing, I’ll point out the fact that Deryn, as well as most of the people in LBG(O), like coffee, she just didn’t like it with yogurt in it, because she hates yogurt. And, yes, Alek was shirtless. Deryn would probably push you off an airship if you tried to steal Alek, but that’s just a guess.

    DUDE! It was supposed to be totally obvious that “Mysterious Someone” was me. *Facepalm*

    The Whistler seems to have been on lots of posts…

    Haha! Did you guess “Hopeless”? Because it was partly that one, too. :)

    Do any of you remember when I did an art post on my blog way back when that included a drawing of a girl laying in the grass, which I’d submitted to a contest? Well, I got “runner up” for it, which is the same as second place. My school got some stuff and I got a bunch of random stuff (i.e. duck call, whistle, waterproof capsule thing, reusable cup with lid and straw, chapstick). I was excited about it. Lots of people submitted art, and for mine to have been chosen as second was really cool. Now I just want to see what first looks like…

I was only honorable mention, but I thought the other winners in my category were kind of… eh. Best use of Theme looked like something I did in my third grade language arts class. No joke.

    @162. Yeah, I don’t really care.

    @163. Actually it was only 10, but my computer’s clock was an hour off. And I got up early today to run a few miles. (Hehe Miles :) ) And I usually try to be in bed before then, especially if I have a busy day ahead, which, if I’m not mistaken, I do. Plus, my bedtime was 8 until fifth grade, so 11 o’clock and on are pretty late for me.

    @164/165. Well, that stinks. But at least you qualified! Does that mean you get to go on, or is ‘kicked out’ very final?

    @166. Sorry, it was only 10, but my clock was off. You live on the east side of the country, then?

    @168- Yes, I live in New England. The thing that bugs me most about New England is all the tourists that come up in the fall to see the leaves turn redish yellowy orange brown. Our main tourism attraction is death??? Really??? On a different note, I was up until 3:00 last night… and the night before… and the night before. Not a great idea ;)

  170. 170

    July 2nd, 2012 07:07

    @170- Yes, I suppose the vibrant colors thing makes sense but if they want to see vibrant colors why don’t the go to their local paint store? Okay, I understand that they want to see the beauty of nature or whatever. Even I appreciate nature. I guess tourists just annoy me. They seem to have an obsession with moose and black bears. Actually, it’s the manufacturers of the souvenirs that have an obsession with moose, black bears, etc. I’m over-thinking this.

    I got up at 8:30 but I would’ve slept longer had my mother not woken me.

    Okay, I have a question for you all concerning Dalek week on DeviantArt. One of the categories is “Roaring 20s”, and I’m trying to decide if Deryn would wear a flapper dress. I think she would, but she’d look totally B.A. while doing it. I put her in the classic Bonnie Parker (from Bonnie and Clyde) position, leaning on the front of a car. I just need to find a casual wear dress for her to wear… all the stuff is, like, for going to a dance club. And then you have Alek wearing a sweater…
    but anyway. I think that by her late 20s, Deryn would have gotten rid of her disguise, you know?

  173. 173
    Middy Miles
    July 2nd, 2012 07:12

    @171. Yes, I assume that tourists/souvenir manufacturers would get annoying. I wouldn’t know, as the only tourism we have are the Sprint Car Nationals, and that’s a bunch of drunk people that I avoid by staying out of town… but gas goes up and traffic is terrible. That I know. My grandparents have people camp in their yard every year, and some of the people that come in are quite the characters… in good ways and bad. But, yeah. Our souvenirs are expensive tshirts, and that’s about it.

  174. 174
    Person with Hat
    July 2nd, 2012 09:57

    @173- Oh, we have every moose/black bear/racoon product you could ever want, or you know, not want. Tee shirts are among the many avalible souvenirs. Shot glasses, bobble heads, little New Hampshire license plates with your name on it, and even little bags of chocolate covered raisins claiming to be the feces of various species of local wildlife. All of these delightful, unecessary products are of course manufactured in China. Well, this is what you find away from the coast. On our sixteen miles of coastline you may select from the same varieties of products with the difference of featuring sea creatures and tie dye rather than fuzzy mammals and olive drab. I’m sorry, this is like the fifth night in a row I’ve been up too late. It’s 1:26 and I’m fairly sure I won’t be sleeping anytime soon. :(

    @185 That last paragraph didn’t use very good grammar. It’s not late because I’m the youngest person here. Since I think you are all older than me, ten o’ clock seems later for me. You guys think that ten pm is the new five pm.
