Love-a-thon Mini Challenge #1: Mix & Match

loveathon-1

Hey guys! This is the first mini challenge for Love-a-thon and it’s all about mixing and matching your other hobbies/passions/interests/talents that are non-bookish and mixing it with the bookish. So I thought that I’d do that by showing off some fanart!

I’ve always loved three things my whole life: reading, writing, and art. I even minored in art in college, if that’s any indication (also because they didn’t offer it as a major). I prefer traditional art styles (aka drawing by hand with paper and pencil) but I also dabble in digital art. I have my own style, and that’s really all that matters, right?

You can view most or all of these works on my deviantART page.

So here’s some fanart of characters from various books:

Akiva & Kaoru from Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor

Grendel from Beowulf

I actually did this one for extra credit for a class I took in college.

The Green Knight from Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

I actually did this one, too, for extra credit in a class I took in college.

Celaena Sardothian from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas

And there you have it! Some of my fanart pieces from various books. I’ll most likely do more fanart in the future so if you’re interested in seeing them when I do that, let me know!

What are some of your hobbies/interests/talents/etc that correspond to your love of books? Share with me photos, blog posts, or whatever else you have so I can check them out, too!

Hosts: Alexa, Cee, Hazel, Mel

    • Thank you! c: I actually drew her at an angle, so when I looked at my finish product I was like, “….what happened?” xD She got stretched out from what I thought I was doing!

  1. This is so cool, Rayna! I’m so envious of people with artistic abilities; if my life depended on my ability to produce a work of art, I’d be dead, no ifs, ands, or buts. The hardest class I took in college was an Intro to Ceramics course, if that gives you any indication of my (lack of) skills. 🙂
