At Peace by RohanElf At Peace by RohanElf
Elspeth and Rushton again... from The Obernewtyn Chronicles (READ THEM READ THEM READ THEM READ THEM!!!). The most recent book yet again had me just begging Isobelle Carmody just to friggen let Elspeth and Ruston be together for one night. Just one night without her gallivanting off to fulfil her destiny and without him being brainwashed or doing Master of Obernewtyn crap damnit!!!!!!

This was inspired by the small sections in The Stone Key where Elspeth was talking about swimming with Rushton in more peaceful times.

Im actually quite proud of this one! (which means everyone else probably wont like it) but I'm pretty happy with the shading and I'm getting better with the Copics!

(also if anyone finds the stock image for this please let me know!!! I cant find where I got it from ANYWHERE!!)

Well done ^_^ And Yes, I feel your frustration in the books, like gawd Isobelle, is it that hard to let them be together??

I only recently picked up this series, and I am hooked. I started "The Keeping Place" yesterday, and I can't seem to put it down, which doesn't help in the way of schoolwork...

I absolutely love this picture, and it is very similar to how I imagined them to be :)

When they became a couple, I literally choked up-I tried to breathe, but couldn't, then spent five seconds coughing :/

Fantastic, Beautiful, Gorgeous, Oh the list can go on! THIS IS AMAZING!!!!!!
I so agree, LET THEM BE TOGETHER! For at least one night???
Hey, I've just recently created a group dedicated to Art about Isobelle Carmody's works. It would be an honor to have your work up in there. There isn't so much up at the moment, but hopefully after time and once more people upload thier art there they'll be more people. The Group is called IsobelleCarmodyFans.
I hope you consider it. :)
OMG! *just read the fine print* YOU MADE THIS FROM STOCK PHOTOS!?!?!?!??! That's just.... Whoa, sorry, i'm in amazement-shock here xD

I absolutely love the books, and your the best person I've seen draw any of the characters so far.
I keep on wondering what your Brydda would look like, because I am completely in love with him.
and I totally agree with the alone time. I reckon they've already done it and Isobelle Carmody just left it out. That is simply not fair. :(

Hmmm Ill see what I can do about Brydda ;) Im SO SO glad there are some other fans out there, we seem to be few and far between... on dA anyway.

Awwww that is totally unfair if she did that :P I vaguely remember something in the latest book where it was implied they hadent though... I could be wrong

Just... wow. My jaw pretty much hit my desk when I opened this. It's so full of emotion and just captures the two of them perfectly.

It sounds weird, but I am so proud of you for doing such an amazing job here. So many people try and draw Elspeth/Rushton/both of them and just don't get it right.

(On another note, so long until The Sending -_-)

Why do I suddenly have a craving for reading The Obernewtyn Chronicles?? Have I perhaps been subjected to not-so-subliminal messages? :P

Wooo for such a cool, beautiful and great drawing. Their hands, arms and faces, uh, basically every part of them that shows :P, looks so realistic and awesome. Love the moles!!! :ahoy:
