Women are like fires by fee-absinthe Women are like fires by fee-absinthe
EDIT:
Added Devi to the series <3 Got to finish Mola and Vashet!

“You see, women are like fires, like flames. Some women are like candles, bright and friendly. Some are like single sparks, or embers, like fireflies for chasing on summer nights. Some are like campfires, all light and heat for a night and willing to be left after. Some women are like hearthfires, not much to look at but underneath they are all warm red coal that burns a long, long while.” 

Patrick Rothfuss - The Name of the Wind


I know I'm waaay back behind my schedule but I was experimenting a bit of an art block and just couldn't finish anything (I tried, but everything looked just *wrong*). So I doodled a few more Kingkiller Chronicles fanart portraits, this time featuring Denna, Auri, Fela and Laurian, Kvothe's mother. It's strange how taking a break to doodle and experiment relaxes your hand xD

By the way, I've fallen in love with this watercolour-ish way of painting. Looks so soft and beautiful <3

AHHH I knew it was a Name of the Wind quote just from the beginning!!!! That book is the best. And I love this. You're amazing. Your interpretation of them all is exactly how I see them. You even got Denna's nose exactly how I pictured it.

That's exactly what I keep in mind while drawing Denna ;) She is a beauty, but to me her sex appeal lies on her imperfectness. I'm really happy you like them!

I heard of it and I'll get it this summer for sure!!! but in this novel, my feeling is that Pat had fun describing a really sexy Bast that seems done for the only purpose of being portrayed by fan!!! when you'll read it, write me if it wasn't so!!Smile

I just read it! It's a really amazing short story, I love the way they describe Bast's inner struggle between ethics he has acquired amongst humans and his fae insticts... <3 I love Bast *fangirl squeel* xD

Kvothe's mother! :D good to see her, I haven't seen Laurian's drawings before. I like how you did Auri

Me neither! I tried to portrait her the way I imagine her, with kind of a long, angular face. Arliden says she has a face like a blade of a knife :)
I'm glad you like Auri, it was hard to draw her because most people imagine her as a child, but to me, though childlike and fragile, she can't look to young because she is probably a former student of the university...

You got a good point there. I'm part of that people who sees Auri as a young and fragile girl and I still do, but I've never seen her from the perspective of being a former student, never thought of that side, and I think you're the first person I've seen to draw her older than others and catch her entire essence and I did like how you did it :)
