I’m a great fan of Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments book series. The books are fun, action packed, full of wonderful jokes, and the way she describes things makes you jump into the story. Besides, the world she’s created for the series is extremely complex and fascinating.
The first movie for the series is in pre-production, and the actors Jamie Campbell Bower and Lily Collins were chosen to play Jace Wayland and Clary Fray. They are the ones shown in character in this painting.
The look and palette for this painting is based on the poster for the next book in the series, City of Lost Souls, which will be released next year. The tattoos were made using the tribal brushes by Obisidian Dawn, which you can find here: [link]
I hope you like it, and if you haven’t read the books and like fantasy stories, go read them! Any feedback is welcome!

Another amazing video made by the amazing YouTube user cheervolley4eva who is….amazing. Haha! This is one of my personal favorite fan videos for The Infernal Devices. I will admit that I am a Jem girl, but this video is more about the relationship between Will and Jem. So we can all be happy! If you haven’t already seen this user’s other videos (Will’s Letter, for example, MY ALL TIME FAVORITE) you should definitely consider checking out her YouTube page. She constantly uploads quality videos, and they often have my emotions running wild.
By the angel, where do I start in telling of my love for the TMI books? Geez. Well I only heard of them back in August, but read through all 4 books within 3 days. Had me some crazy loving for Cassandra Clare from that moment. What an amazing woman.
The characters are so well developed, and I can honestly say I love all of them. Simon, of course, being my all time favourite. His sexy vampire mojo is too much to handle but I’ll forever hold his hand.
The ships are absolutely off the radar, and there really are no comparisons to the cheeky dirty sexy scenes Cassie slips in.
I have a countdown going on for the release date of City of Lost Souls. I’m really really scared for it though, if I’m completely honest. I have no idea what’s going to happen, and I almost don’t want to find out.
AND I WANT SOME MALEC LOVING! Seriously! I need some Malec!
I think it’s safe to say, I have a teeny tiny obsession with this series….
Okay, maybe a HUGE obsession with this series. I’ve even gone to the extreme of getting some rather sexual Marks tattoos. (see photo on right)
I could seriously ramble on about how much I love everything in this series, but I should probably stop now. I’ll only give you a headache 😛
Jace and Clary from Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments books. The song that inspired this piece is Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games” : [link] One of the prettiest songs I’ve ever heard… Drawn in Copics and india ink, with lighting done with Corel Photopaint 9
The surviving children of the Lightwood family, Isabelle and Alec Lightwood, and Jace Wayland (Herondale). Characters are from Cassandra Clare’s amazing books, The Mortal Instruments series. I’m a bit nervous, I worked hard on this one, but I’m not sure I like how it turned out. Hmmm. Done in Copics, india ink, and Corel Photopaint 9 Song for this piece is “Teenage Angst” by Placebo.
