This is a fanart piece for Elizabeth Wein's Code Name Verity.

Painting in photoshop is not really my thing, and this was made harder by the fact that this was done completely without a tablet or a mouse, just the little pad thingy on my roommates macbook. I wasn't sure what they were supposed to be wearing or anything so I just completely made that up. The only person I had to be a model is Yours Truly, which is why their facial structure is similar. I want to keep working on this but it seems to be getting worse rather than better, so I'm stopping now.

ETA: Just uploaded an updated version, I just fixed a few little details. Probably nobody but me will notice, heh.

It looks great! I don't think I've ever met anyone who has read the book. Want to discuss it?

I remember this scene.

10 fears, after Maddie woke Queenie up with some tea.

Well done.

Aw, this makes my heart hurt for the book all over again. (Not a bad hurt. The kind of hurt that a lot of good books have a way of causing.)

I can't quite put my finger on which scene it reminds me of, but yes, fabulous! Lovely lighting, warm and friendly, and they do look like they're wearing oversized greatcoats or something.

Thanks... I was illustrating a very specific scene here, so... maybe its time for a re-read ;-) Any excuse to read a good book, eh? :D

are you kidding me, they are GORGEOUS. Also, I can't imagine how you did this essentially by FINGERPAINTING. I love the lighting, too. ♥

Well, I consider you to be kinda the ultimate source of approval for this in a way, so if you like it, I guess I do too ;-).
