Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week is a Thanksgiving freebie, and I was inspired by Melanie’s post to showcase some of my favorite fanarts! I’m so thankful for all the talented artists who bring my favorite characters/book scenes to life: you all are so amazing, seriously.
I was really excited to get into my old Deviantart account to find all my favorite pieces, but when I finally figured out how to login, almost all of them were missing my favorites folders 😩 Since I could only find the artwork from recent months, I tried really hard not to turn this post into Jude/Carden Fanart Appreciation post 😂 These artists are all so talented and I highly suggest checking out their work! (p.s. if you haven’t read Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo yet, spoilers ahead!)
wolvesofspring → “The Taste of Dreams”
This is one of the most beautiful pieces of fanart I’ve ever seen, and I’m really thankful it’s of one of my favorite characters, Sansa Stark. Look at this masterpiece. Look at it.
nymre → “Painted Blue”
Okay, honestly most of the fanart I had saved on Deviantart were Zutara pieces because it’s 2018 and I’m still not over them and I never will be.
Gabriella Bujdosó → “Maya and Amar”
I’m obsessed with this art and if anyone will be getting the December Faecrate, please keep me in mind! (there’s also an amazing Grishaverse fanart by this artist as well and I had trouble choosing between the two!)
Melanie Bourgeois → “Jude and Cardan”
This is one of my favorite fanarts of The Cruel Prince, and every time I see it I get a little giddy.
MORGANA0ANAGROM → “Darkling and Alina”
Leigh Bardugo called this “one of my favorite pieces of Grishaverse art ever” and I wholeheartedly agree with that sentiment.
Newsha-Ghasemi → “With Fire and Blood”
Here we are again with another GLORIOUS piece of Zutara fanart. The details of this are stunning. I want a poster of this hanging on the wall in my room.
Monica Borg → “Jude Duarte”
This amazing fanart captures the essence of Jude and The Cruel Prince quite nicely and I’m loving it.
taratjah → “Chaol Westfall”
Oh, Chaol Westfall, Captain of the Gaurd and of my heart. This artist does so many amazing pieces of Chaol it was hard to pick my favorite one. Also, she does a m a z i n g work for FairyLoot. I hoard all her fanart pieces that come in the boxes. I could spend all day looking at her instagram.
Anne-Marie → “Death and Night”
Another beautiful fanart from Roshani Chokshi’s The Star-Touched Queen series. I would absolutely love a print of this to frame on my wall.
Nicole Deal → “Through the Dark”
Another artist with such incredible work it’s hard to choose my favorite, but this Malina piece is just *Italian chef kiss*
Honorable Mention: Loweana → “Cardan”
Bet you thought you saw the last of The Cruel Prince fanart. I had to include an honorable mention spot because how could I not include this?
I hope you enjoyed the list! There were soo many more I wanted to add but I had to restrain myself. I love looking at fanart so if you have any favorite pieces or artists, let me know in the comments!
