Yes, well. I’ve made it before the weekend ended. Fan Art Friday Fortnightly!
ComickerGirl has graced these pages before, but this is too funny to pass up. It shows Deryn and Alek doing some Full Metal Alchemist cosplay! Because you know Deryn would cosplay if she could, and would totally drag Alek along for laughs!
So I give you “Full Metal Darwinist”:
If you don’t know FMA, click here to see the relevant costumes. And then go read the manga and watch the anime (both of them!).
From Bridget, here are Alek and Deryn in a more clay-like form:
This is what we need, Leviathan stop-motion animation! Like Gumby, they could walk into other books and mess up the plots. Someone get on that! (And don’t forget to check out Bovril in the upper right corner.)
And now for you Uglies, from Seth, we have this painstaking rendering of New Pretty Town:
Hot-air balloons! Hovercars! Fireworks!
And from Star of Dusk, here’s a cool shot of Lilit:
I think Lilit is beloved of fan artists because she has such cool clothes. (Plus she’s awesome.) Her sleeve ties are the best. One day I’ll ask Keith where he sourced them from.
I’m pretty sure that IsabelStar has appeared on FAFF before, but this is so moody and lovely:
Click here for the bigness!
By the way, that one’s called “Austrian Princes Turning Gay.” Heh. But princes? Hmm.
Thanks to all our artists for your many efforts. If you want something included in FAFF, please send it to me, even if you’ve already sent it! (I get lots of mail and I lose track of some of it. It’s a thing I do. DON’T HATE ME.)
The next post on this blog will be ALL THE TOUR DATES. I’m very excited about seeing you guys soon (some of you *sniffs*), and about Goliath finally coming out. And I’m also excited about taking some time off after that.
What will I be doing next? Well, that’s an interesting question. There is, of course, the Uglies manga (aka the Croy Project) and the Manual of Aeronautics (aka the Leviathan Full-Color All Singing and Dancing Art Book). But there are also various secret projects which will be revealed here once they have taken some sort of publishable form.
Watch this space for revelations.
