Brightly Woven by achelseabee Brightly Woven by achelseabee
Last night I finished reading Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken.
It was a pretty good book! Not my absolute favorite, but it had an interesting plot with some really great moments.
For those interested, it's more of a classic fantasy book than paranormal.

I just had to get the characters on paper.
So here's Sydelle Mirabil and Wayland North.
Apparently, if you're named Wayland (first or last), you're freaking awesome ;p

Can't decide if I want to color this. I actually like how it came out just inked.
Syd has red hair and blue eyes. North has dark hair and eyes. Yummyyy :giggle:

Just finished reading the book. Once i figure out the wizard's name was North i was like, "Yep, i like you."
lol
Nice drawing. Sydelle's hair is badass and i love the way you've drawn the clothing :)

:) So happy to see a fanart for this book. I've been working on some but I can't get Wayland right no matter how hard I try. XD
I'll be sure to post when/if I ever do.

I understand! I don't like how my Wayland turned out either.
Maybe one day I'll give it another go :XD:

This is really good.
I agree. If anyone has a first or last name that is Wayland, they are definitely freaking awesome. (Like Jace Wayland...and my username...I'm not stating that I'm awesome, but...ah, whatever)

Are you the real Jace Wayland?!
Cause if so, I have to tell you--I've got a major crush on you :blush: :XD:

Thank you!

Unfortunately not. I'm an extremely obsessed fangirl XD
I have a serious obsession with the City of Bones movie news. Pettyfer's all "No." then he's like "Yes." and then he goes "I have to figure out what I am doing."
Frustrating man, I tell you. Why can't he just say "Ok. I'll take it." and relieve all of us fans.

I will unabashedly fangirl over Jace :iconsqueeeplz:

I think I'm the only one who is not sure about Pettyfer for the role of Jace. His look is dead-on, but I saw him in a movie and his acting was...sub-par. But it was a really crappy movie, so I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt and am going to blame the film for his mediocrity. I do just want to know who they're going to cast for Jace already though! I mean, I'm glad they're putting time and effort into it, rather than just plucking someone off the streets to play him.

The first time I saw Pettyfer I automatically thought "Jace."
Stormbreaker (or Operation Stormbreaker in the U.S.) was said to be a bad movie. The author of the book was there to change names and the storyline and it was unfortunately for the worst. I can't wait to see 'Beastly' and 'I Am Number Four' just to see the man act. He's promoting I Am Number Four so that is probably why no one's said anything.
Hopefully they know what they are doing and not just picking actors by their looks (which makes me think that is what they did with Pettyfer. I know they're holding auditions, too.
If you go to cityofbonesmovie.com, it has a lot of stuff about the actors and a bit of gossip since no one knows what to believe. Most of the stuff on there is relevant, though.

I can't wait to see Beastly and I Am Number Four for the same reason. The movie I saw him in was called Wild Child. I think it was probably one of those made for TV movies, and it was just really bad. I hope he really can act. But I'm getting ahead of myself. We don't even know if he'll take Jace's role. I just hope whoever they choose can act. Because I feel like this movie will already have enough things going against it.

Wild Child sounded terrible. I also know that the lead actress (Emma something...lol I can't remember) used to be his girlfriend, which just says that someone was asking for hostility or bad-ness.
Whoever they choose better be able to act or the movie will just crash and burn in front of their eyes.

It was terrible. I mean, hilariously terrible. I laughed so hard.
I knew it was going to be bad though. My friend and I only watched it because we wanted to see Pettyfer in something, and it was on TV.

I'm a bit worried about how they're going to do the whole brother/sister lovers thing. I think that might get a lot of crap if they don't do it right (and I honestly don't know that there is a way to do that right in a movie). And the special effects are going to have to be spectacular if they don't want those demons to be laughable.

This is awesome! I don't know what it is about this, but it just makes me want to read the book again... Maybe I'll picture North looking like that! You made him look super hott, I mean I can't even remember how I pictured him...
Anyways... this is awesome! I love it!

haha, that's because I always pictures characters being hot while reading, even if they're not supposed to be.
It's like my brain cannot conjure up an ugly or mediocre-looking person :XD:

Thank you!

I just finished the book the other day. It was wonderful, and it was so great to see fan art posted here. No other site has any, so the was great. I'll probably finish coloring within the next couple days.

Oh I can see that!
It wasn't my absolute favorite of the YA fantasy genre, but it was definitely still good!
Still worth the read, for sure.
I think I would have liked it even more if I hadn't been reading it while I was so distracted.
I felt confused sometimes, but it was probably just because I was reading in a room with my family while they watched TV. Bad idea :no:

I do like the way her hair came out! It's how I pictured it when I read the book. It's nice when that happens :XD:

Hahaha, well...be warned: it's actually 5 different capes. And they're special. Powerful. bumbumBUMMM.

Well I think the creation of magical capes might be attributed to Mr. Wayland North.
Quite a cool concept though--utilitarian AND awesome!
