Check this out:
I actually commissioned this image from Allison B. Thomas, whose work I’ve been following for a while. Since I always refer to Keith’s style in Leviathan as “Victorian manga,” I thought it would be cool to see the characters in a real manga style.
It’s cool how the clothing above (wind-swept, as always in manga) feels almost as detailed as in Keith’s incredibly fine-lined work. It’s a great translation from one style to another, which my favorite thing about fan art. It’s kind of like alternate history, art-style. (Or something like that)
But seriously, go check out Allison’s other work.
I love how many people have sent me images of themselves as Tally. It’s an interesting form of character identification—Tally as everygirl.
And by the way, if you’ve sent me fan art and it hasn’t appeared, please send it again! Just make sure to use the term “fan art” in the subject line. I seriously get a lot of email and stuff gets buried.
Okay, back to finishing Goliath. More on the tour soon.
