The Fitz and the Fool by VLAC The Fitz and the Fool by VLAC
I have just finished reading Robin Hobb's Farseer saga and I enjoyed it so much that I had to draw the characters. So here's my interpretation of FitzChivalry and the Fool as Lord Golden.

Here are links to my other Farseer drawings :

I love her trilogies I've read these two three times each :) and I love your interpretation of what they look like!
Have you read the first Farseer trilogy? I wonder if you could draw Nighteyes and Fitz, or Molly :)...just a challenge for you

Je viens de finir le deuxième cycle, cette série est vraiment prenante, on garde une impression de vide une fois la dernière page tournée. J'ai eu beaucoup de plaisir à découvrir ton fan art où je retrouve le fou comme je me l'imaginais.
Je crois qu'il va rester quelques temps en arrière plan sur mon bureau :D

Lord Golden... with "fool-colored"clothes.
I just love the smirk you gave him, it's... the fool's smirk. I can't describe it better.
And congratulation for the clothes, they are just wonderful.

So... thanks for giving to other fans such an amazing picture of our two friends.

Très belle représentation! Fitz est tel que je l'imaginais. Par contre j'ai eu un peu plus de mal à me fixer une image bien arrêté de Lord Golden. Pas facile, il est tellement changeant.
Sinon son expression un peu narquoise correspond tout à fait au personnage. Tes illustrations sont remarquables =D

Merci beaucoup! En effet, le seigneur Doré est difficile à cerner. Mes dessins de lui continuent de changer, je ne suis pas encore parvenue à lui donner un aspect définitif, mais ça s'en vient. Merci encore :)

Oh wow, that's amazing...
'Specially Fitz.
He is exactly as I imagine him.

The Fool looks a little like he should be in a Disney movie... I can live with that.
He's so fabulously smug.

And the contrast between the two. Everything from their stance to their swords.
The clothes are almost exactly as I pictured as well. The Fool's especially are wonderful.

I'd love to see how you'd draw his motley.
I see you've made a wallpaper based on this.
Do you plan on drawing much more Hobb fanart?
I sure hope so, 'cause I love this. ^^

Ok, that face on Lord Golden is one of the best I've ever seen. He's so smug and knowing, and that EYEBROW is almost scandalous. I love the differences in their faces you did - the Fool's is so clean and straight and Fitz looks like he's been through a life of hell, like he really has. :XD: Really nice job on the colors of the scene as well. Purple and gold are win.
