Wishsong of Shannara - Poster by StillJade Wishsong of Shannara - Poster by StillJade
Made for my advanced comp and reasearch class's magazine project where we all picked a book to read and make a magazine out of. I picked The Wishsong of Shannara by Terry Brooks.

A poster/ad for another book by the same author or a movie poster of the book you were doing was required for the project. I am happy about how it came out (Doesn't it look like a brightened-up version of a Lord of the Rings poster? =D)
There are a few quirks about the characters' designs in it that bug me, hopefully they aren't too buggy.

*You might not be able to tell who is who in this because I put my own spin on the characters, but-- Brin Ohmsford is the top one; Jair Ohmsford is the blond one; and the guy with the sword is Rone Leah*

Unlike the cover, this one was actually started out as a BS-ed coloring job, but I grew to like it and did a better job on it instead of half-a$$ing it.

thanks for the comment.
yes, there's so many fan art for games and graphic novels... but novels themselves are rare (pending on the novel)--- plus seeing everyone's version of the same character(s) is fun isn't it? =D

It is! I love seeing differnt designs of a character in a stroy. Most people need visual insperation I think so novels aren't the top choice but it's such a shame. It would be interesting to see more novel fanart. I have seen Harry Potter comics, scenes straight from a book before and found that interseting. The artist drew insperation straight from the source and not just the movie so that was even more enjoyable to see.

I've seen those Harry Potter things too. But ya gotta show some love to those in the fantasy/sci-fi genre that aren't as main stream as those wizards. ^_~

I had no idea. Why didn't I already know this about you?
o_o
I still think that the Elfstones was a better book out of the original 3 tho. But the Wishshong was a better movie poster =P
