Isabelle Lightwood by Street-Angel
Isabelle Lightwood
Disclaimer: The portraits of Emeraude Toubia and Jemima West were colour dropped from these references respectively Emeraude and Jemima. Colour dropping is where I sampled the colours from the reference image and used them in the painting. Inadvertently it demonstrates with lighting the inspiration for this piece.

The background is official material of the movie and used for non-profit.

I heard on the grapevine that there was going to be a Shadowhunter's TV series and the casting started trickling onto my Facebook newsfeed but mostly I haven't been paying attention. A lot of things in my life have changed and I've been well out of the loop of any fandom or motivation to draw for nearly a year now. But my job doesn't care if I sit with my headphones in all day and so I find myself listening to my collection of audiobooks day in day out. As you may have guessed City of Bones came on (I listen on random because I've read every book I have an audio book of and I'm more than happy to flit in and out of stories) so I had a wonder over to Cassie's tumblr for old times sake.

Where I saw this post.

And this struck me most of all, 'beautiful, badass, vulnerable but indomitable, it just won’t matter and she won’t be “our Isabelle” to some.'

And I knew exactly what I wanted to draw.

I've had lots of people message me saying they love my depiction of the TMI characters. That they're exactly how they imagined them. And equally I image those people and others will have said similar to other great TMI artists such as Cassandra Jean, Kara Lija, Burge, Palnk and so many others whose handles I can't remember off the top of my head.

But really TMI fandom, did you need Cassie to tell you what we've been telling ourselves for years?

There are many many ways for a written character to be realised. And each way is special.

So whether you prefer Emeraude or Jemima or to swim around in the multitude of offerings this fandom provides for your favourite depiction of Isabelle, can we look for the positives in each rather than finding aesthetic reasons to dislike someone?

I'm in a book, oh my gosh.

So some of you might have read the Faery Rebels series by RJ Anderson. If you haven't, I urge you to do so. Nomad, the 5th book, came out about a month ago and they just go from strength to strength. They have a wonderful way of being sequential and looping back to the previous characters without detracting from each book's central plot and characters.

I started reading Nomad last night at about midnight when I went to bed and didn't put it down till I finished at around 3am. I was about to close the book and go to sleep when I read the acknowledgements.

..and promptly started making very high pitched excited noises. I woke up my cat.

Sleep was impossible after that.

Here are the finished fan-arts I have on DA
