Attolia+Attolis by annmarieri Attolia+Attolis by annmarieri
Finally had time to do some art :) Fairly quick, started this last night, maybe 4/5 hours total? Because I am lazy and never do real artwork :p

Soooo... Irene/Eugenides from Megan Whalen Turner's wonderful awesome novels. Heavily based on a scene from The King of Attolia. Reference picture used for basic pose.

Got lazy on the blood, will probably improve on that later...

I love this couple ^_^

The title... well, she is queen of Attolia, and is therefore generally called Attolia rather than her name, Irene. Eugenides was a thief for the queen of Eddis until he married Attolia, which made him king of Attolia, called Attolis. And I think it sounds cool... Attolia+Attolis. Ehehe.

That's all. Thank God for spring break x_x

Also: as usual, I submitted this at 66% of the original size. Better than putting a watermark on all my fanart...

This is awesome, I love the blood slipping through Gen's fingers and the detailing on Attolia's hair. Although that is one hell of a big boob she's got.

Just gorgeous. Quite possibly the best Attolia fanart I've seen.

Awww, it's beautiful. I think his hand is a bit too small - I think hands should generally be large enough to cover their faces. Anyway, I love that scene. ^^

I'm assuming the scar is on his other cheek, or did you want to leave him godlike and perfect-looking?

This is so good! I love how her fingers are clenched in his hair, it kind of shows her desperation, and the intensity of her relief. This was one of my favourite scenes in KoA. Actually, there were a lot, but this is definitely one of them. It's been over a year since I read the series, but looking at your art makes me think it's time for a re-read. I actually want to buy the series, because they're so awesome, and because the covers are so pretty. I love having a series of books with pretty covers all lined up on my shelf. And my library still doesn't have CoK yet, so I haven't actually read it yet. Gah! Anyway, her hair is amazing, and I love Gen's tan.

Thanks! I'm all a-grin because you're going to re-read the series, an endeavor of which I wholeheartedly approve. :D

The Attolia trilogy (or whatever you may happen to call it) is a fantastic story. I just finished re-reading The King of Attolia...it's one of those story arcs that I wish desperately would be made into a movie, but at the same time I shudder to think how royally it could be screwed up by the filmmakers. Your fanart is lovely -- the queen looks so much younger when she's with Gen. =)

Thanks :D Yeah, I love the books to itty bitty pieces, but I'm pretty sure filmmakers would ruin them.

And I've never imagined Attolia as that old, maybe late twenties... so older than Gen, but not OLD. Is her actual age ever given in the books?

Not quite. I think she's younger than Eddis, but not by much; Eddis said that if she married Gen, there would be not only a matter of incest but of "robbing the cradle". Sooo...I'm thinking Eddis is at least early thirties, and Attolia late twenties, as you say. Perhaps it's just my fangirl nature, but I've always thought of Gen as very early twenties. ...so, not a ridiculous age difference. It might have been better on my part to say that Attolia looks so at peace when she's with Gen. =)

Aha :D Yes, I agree. They're probably my favorite fictional couple EVER, because they're just so perfect for each other <3

I tend to put Gen at somewhere between 17-19 in the latest book, but mostly just 'cause everyone talks about how young he is, so...

Ah, thank you so much! I'm glad you like it :)

I've always been a bit disappointed about the amount of fanart for some of my favorite books EVER, so I decided to remedy the situation a little :p

I know, I am again -so- excited to find fanart for it. Sigh, I should try drawing again so I can do some xD
And you simply MUST do more! You captured their features and colouring perfectly <3

And... I still haven't read A Conspiracy of Kings o_o Sophos is so adorkable in the first book... lol. Everyone tells me that Gen isn't in it too much which is disappointing to hear :-/

He isn't, which is sad, but he's awesome in the parts he's in.

Not that I don't like Sophos, but given a choice between reading a book about Gen or a book about Sophos, I'm gonna choose Gen.

For for it! It's a fandom that could definitely use more fanart :p

OMG!!!!! This is my favourite character couple of all time! I'm a massive Eugenides (and Attolia) fan.

I love this scene (in fact it may be one of my favourites)- and I especially love how beautiful Irene is and how you had Gen a little hidden by her- so he's kind of ambiguous.
Great work!

Thanks :) I dunno, I have zero time for art this semester though, so it's not that likely :(

On the other hand, after I read the new book, I may not be able to stop myself XD

This may be a weird little detail, but I love the folds at the wrist of her...arm things. I like how that came out. ^___^
