So I've been favouriting most of your peahopeless related work. I've been hooked on her writing this week and I have to say your illustrations are wondrous. Love them (:

No - as near as I can tell, it's a bureau or something behind them with a vase on top. I know it doesn't read well, but I was trying to keep any reflections of things behind them to a minimum. ^^;

I like it a lot! What medium is this? Also, what's the whole deal? What exactly are you illustrating? I didn't think there was anything else about V and Evey other than the graphic novel.

Wow - lots of 'splaining for me to do... :lol:

Firstly, I work with grey pastel pencils on black drawing paper. Once the drawing's done, I scan it into Photoshop and add tinted lighting effects with the Omnilight function (and touch up dust, eraser marks, etc.).

Now for the longer question ... :D

My drawings are for ~peahopeless' stories, which are based on the film version of V for Vendetta (check here if you're not familiar with it). The film is similar to the graphic novel, but there are definitely significant changes. Some people like the film, others don't; it just depends. :shrug: At any rate, ~peahopeless writes based on the movie-verse of V for Vendetta. In her universe, V didn't die (although he disappeared for some time) and V/Evey have a future together. I started drawing for her stories back in August last year. To date, she's written well over a hundred stories and she's still going strong, so (hopefully! :fingerscrossed:) I'll be kept busy for a while yet! :aww:

I have seen the film, and although I really loved it, once I read the graphic novel it had lost a lot in my eyes. I'm still impressed by the visual side of it, but the novel had such an impact on me (all aspects of it) that I don't really care for the movie anymore. The story had perfect closure for me, so, well understood, I'm a bit unsure about the whole idea of V surviving... Nevertheless, I'm not in the habit of forming opinions on things I do not know, and your illustrations... are so convincing that I just might check it out. I guess you're the right person to ask where and how?

I can certainly understand your view regarding the novel and its ending - I loved it as well, and tend to agree that the novel's ending makes perfect sense (and so to save my sanity, I put the graphic novel in an entirely separate "Universe-Box" in my mind. :crazy:)

~peahopeless' stories in particular are concerned with "fixing" the movie-verse. She doesn't alter events within the movie (except for V's death, which one could technically argue was merely assumed...) , but rather expands on them and then moves forward from there. She writes primarily for V & Evey's relationship, and has a meticulously assembled (and huge!) timeline that she follows. Her stories are listed in chronological order here - although it's not entirely necessary to read all of them that way. You might try starting with the story that began all of it for her, Mirror of Resurrection.

Good luck!

It is indeed what I've been seeing ... the description (and you know how very helpful, hint hint wink wink, I can be at some parts) does match what I've been seeing in my head.

(For the record, to those passing through, this is for one of the stories that i've owed since before Christmas. Remember that one I mentioned about him getting dressed? It came as two mini-dreams, actually. Then when I realized the connection and put them together, that's when that whole Shalott thing happened. ... Something that some who've been with me since then will recognize.) (Spelling on Shalott?)

(So this actually is something from one that I hope to be writing soon.)

I love the holding hands, which I note was Wednesday's addition. :D

And that tilt of his head (another addition I didn't specifically specify) ... shows such a nice, good mood and good moment. :D The mask's grin really 'fits' here.

This one was a bit odd... it developed much the same way as "In such a night as this", in that the pose actually changed as I was drawing it. I got the feeling of seeing "snapshots" of them throughout the conversation they seemed to be having, and this was the one that ended up making the most sense as a still image. And I'm curious to know just what she's trying to convince him of - I sure as heck have no idea... :?

>(Spelling on Shalott?)

Is correct. :-)
