Fan Art Friday (At Last!)

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.

  1. @39: DOUBLE FACEPALM: When the fail is just too bad. I saw a picture that said that (or thereabouts.)
    @49: Yes, sarcasm overload.

  2. When you first said the new ch. was up, I didn’t read the rest and clicked on your name, I was dissapointed. 🙁

    But now I’m not! 😀

  3. *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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. I love coffee! Black with no sugar is the best way to drink it! Except when you have 7 cups of it like that all within an hour of each other. Very bad idea 😉

  7. Finally!!! Summer vacation!!!! I’m free at last! But then again, when vacation is over I’m transitioning from my middle school with a total of 18 kids in all the grades to a high school with 1700 kids… fun fun fun 🙁

  8. OH MY GAWD! There is a rumor (according to IMDb) that the Uglies movie is coming out in November! Probably not, though. 🙁

  9. so let me explain why I haven’t been on: softball.
    so when school got out that weekend I had a tourney (4th place)
    then the next week I had softball camp all week everyday all day.
    that weekend I had another tourney (2nd place, one of the umpires had a sister on the other team)
    then that following week I went away to softball camp, we got to stay at the collage dorms 😛
    and this week, Mon- practice Tues- team sleepover 😛 Wed-practice Thurs- double header and today is my day off! Finally! Tomorrow is practice, Sunday, nothing that I know of, Monday another double header, then practice that week HUGE tournament not this weekend but next. 😛

  10. OH WOW I just went on imdb AND THERE IIIIIISSSSSSS!!!!!!! (gonna be a movie) CAN’T WAIT CAN’T WAIT CAN’T WAAAAAIIIIITTTTT!!!!!! I wonder who’s gonna play Tally? SORRY BUT IM JUST SO ECXITED!!!!!! 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….

  11. 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.

  12. @49-You are:PERSON WITH HAT. Just a guess. I can tell by your additude. (no way I spelled additude right)

  13. And by the way, if you hate when people say they hate coffee then why’d you make Deryn say it?
    And I just realized that Alek was shirtless (for just a moment) AGAIN during that chapter. :3 If Deryn weren’t so lovey dovey over that prince he would totally be my boyfriend…<3 <3 <3

  14. It’s so cold and rainy out!! How come when I’m finally on summer vacation the weather turns all nasty? 🙁

  15. @91- yes it was cuz it was posted 1 minute before the whistler posted and the whistler has something to do with MM. Or at least, I think it does.

  16. My friend has been haunting my dreams ever since school ended. I’m kinda freaked out…
