Artemis Fowl: The Last Guardian by StickyLeaf Artemis Fowl: The Last Guardian by StickyLeaf
[EDIT] 09/07/13
Thank you so much for the DD, such an honor!!! :faint: It's incredibly surprising that I even got this opportunity, thank you ^Lyricanna for the feature!!!

[NOTE] Please save those who have yet read this book by keeping the comments spoilers-free as best we can! Thank you!!

This was bound to happen: My tribute to the Artemis Fowl series, a scene from the last book.

Painting this was nostalgic, and it'll probably be the only AF art for a long time now. But those who got through the book should remember this scene. The book was terrific!! There was some inconsistencies but it turned out alright ---- the scheme is so ...green... or maybe not green enough... Anyway, it was a good painting practice though I find Artemis a bit stiff.

Aww... I'll miss Arty :')

This is so, so, so depressing. I cried for almost two hours after finishing TLG. This painting brings back literally the best and worst feelings of my life.😓😓😓

This scene is probably one of the saddest scenes in AF history ever. Good job on making me feel depressed and nostalgic at the same time :)
You captured Artemis perfectly, especially his face.

I was going to say something funny here, but your art is just too perfect! This scene is basically EXACTLY what I imagined it would look like. Nice job on Arty!

Even though this series was a vital part of my childhood, I put it away after the sixth book, as I felt it differed a lot from the feel of the previous ones and just threw me off, cannot remember the exact reason... but anyway, a couple of weeks ago I started on the Atlantis Complex and when I had finished it I thought... 'my god, I need to follow these characters to the very end' and so I did. And when I had finished the last page in the last book I was overthrown by the unexpected feelings of nostalgia and sadness that came over me. In the end, the only thing I did not enjoy about it was that it had to come to an end. But such is the nature of things, and it was a dignified way to end the series.

This artwork absolutely does the book, the series, and Artemis' legacy justice... a DD well deserved :)

Thank you for such a kind comment! Though I've got to confess that my favorite book is still The Time Paradox. These books will always be a part of my childhood.
