Tristan and Cécile de Montigny: A Stolen Songbird Fan Art

I’m not entirely just a book review blog, you know. I’m an artist so hell, I’ve always wanted to draw book related fan arts.
And I am now so excited to show you guys my 8 step fan art process of one of my 2015 favorite novel, Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen. (Go check out my review here)

This is actually my entry for the HHArtComp hosted by Angry Robots and some book blogs. And I made it on the last hours before the deadline. lol. I’m always like that, doing important things on the last minute. But well, I have made it.
And oh, don’t get me wrong, this is no tutorial. I just want to show how I did the fan art. My drawing style here is totally different from what I’m used to and this is the first time I used this, so let me know what you think about it on the comment section below. *winks*

WARNING! This scene is the most heart-breaking part of the novel (at least for me). I won’t tell anything about it coz I might spoil or something. JUST READ THE BOOK, I BEG OF YOU!
Alright, lo and behold…
