“One of the Silent Brothers is here to see you. Hodge sent me to wake you up. Actually he offered to wake you himself, but since it’s 5 a.m., I figured you’d be less cranky if you had something nice to look at.”
After laughing in amusement and gasping in anguish during the adventures of the Mortal Instruments books, I figured I owed the author some fan art for not disappointing. So here it is, a sketch of Clary and Jace, a pairing which brought much joy and pain to me as a reader. Joy because their relationship is so raw and dear, pain because — well, you’ll just have to read it. Clary is an artist who describes herself as ‘cute’, but swearing to jeans and sweaters didn’t exactly make her very feminine. I decided I’d let Isabelle fix her up again before I started drawing her (how can I possibly resist the temptation to make Clary all girly and pretty when she’s got wonderfully red and curly hair!) – note her embarrassed expression.
Jace is his usual sexy, confident and sarcastic self (but good-natured), though how I managed to make him look hot with those stupid, golden curls of his, is a mystery. I even put on the faint white lines of inactive, faded runes on his chest – can you tell? I put some active ones on both of them as well, and I dressed them up in shadowhunter gear! Or at least my version of it. Jace decided – much to our joy – that he didn’t need the black top underneath, the coat alone was sufficient, hurr hurr.
Lutten’s complaining about the design of the stele. Shaddap, that’s how I imagined it while reading! (And the seraph blades look even duller in my imagination when inactive, hehe)
I quite like this sketch, perhaps I should give it a go?
