Prepare for the Supernova Readalong – Week 3 & 4

Supernova is 16 nights away!

Thursday, October 24 will mark the end of the readalong portion of Fierce Reads’ Prepare for the Supernova events. Although I wasn’t able to keep entirely on schedule, it was fun connecting with other fans and talking about theories for the last book in the trilogy.

And now for my favorite fanart finds!

I am huge on girl power, and I love how gia.artxoxo drew the Renegades girls so beautifully. If Renegades became an animated/graphic novel series, this would be the standard.

When I first saw this, my immediate thought was how awesome it would be if this became a special edition cover of Renegades. I think itme.z captured Adrian’s image perfectly, and it’s so hard now for me to see his character any other way.

This painting by bryceb_art takes my breath away. The detail in the flowers, vines, and broken tree trunks bring this scene to life, and I love how the star in the statue’s hands seems to really glow. It captures the mystery behind Nova’s dream, but it also feels like the calming escape from reality that Adrian and Nova use it as in Archenemies.

It's finally done! I'm so happy I can share this with y'all. As you can probably tell, it's a little different from the stuff I usually paint, so let me get into what this is for. I made this for a fan art contest for one of my all-time favorite authors @marissameyerauthor and her #RenegadesTrilogy . I chose to paint a scene from the second book in the series, #Archenemies , where Adrian paints his interpretation of Nova's dream of a plant-infested Gatlon City. I thought this scene was gorgeous when I read it, and felt that it was perfect for this contest. While making this, I tried to stay as close to the source material as possible. I did opt for a nighttime scene though, that way I could showcase how the cloaked statue's star was illuminating the room. I imagine this is what the room looked like when Nova was sleeping, since I'm guessing Adrian didn't want to leave his light on and wake her up by accident. I also included as many specific plants from the description as I could. Big purple flowers, vines, a broken tree trunk, white star-shaped flowers, and mushrooms. The ruins of Gatlon were my favorite parts to figure out, especially the cracked staircase. I think I put more ruins in my version than Adrian did in his, but I wanted to show that the painting used to be a city and was not just a jungle. Along with the stairs, I painted a broken concrete wall leading to the tree stump, and silhouettes of buildings in the skyline (look closely and you can find the chapel from the end of book two!) Overall, this painting was really challenging for me as I typically paint portraits on sketchbook paper, not landscapes on 3ft by 4ft wood boards. Despite the challenge, it definitely opened my mind to diversifying my artwork and painting more scenes in the future. I'll be sharing details of this painting soon, since this photo isn't the best quality (the paint was glaring a lot in the camera lol). Let me know what you guys think of it!! πŸ˜ŠπŸ¦ΈπŸΏβ€β™‚οΈπŸ¦ΉπŸ½β€β™€οΈ
