The Secrets You Request... by kara-lija The Secrets You Request... by kara-lija
Will and Tessa from Cassandra Clare's The Infernal Devices series.

The title of this piece comes from the haunting and beautiful song by Toad the Wet Sprocket, called "Pray Your Gods" : [link]

Such a gorgeous song...

What a striking image! Your mental image of Will is different from mine, but I love how you captured the time period in his appearance - not just his clothes, but his face and his expression somehow, too. And i LOVE your portrayal of Tessa. You made her so gorgeous! I love the colors you used for her hair, especially with the gorgeous red of her outfit. The sweeping ball gown, plus the off-center placement of Will and Tessa, gives some awesome contrast and balance to the composition of the image.
Of course, everybody can always improve, but really, I don't think there's much to critique here. The only thing I noticed was that the colour and lightness of their skin seems a bit bright for their surroundings, but even that I didn't notice at first. Did you layer the characters over a photo or something for the background? It looks cool. :D
Awesome art work!

Heya, absolutely love your art. Just a random question what programme do you use? I'm getting a tablet soon and been playing around with a few, and was curious what you use?

Not only are the poses and expressions amazing, but I love the detail of the clothes. I love period pieces for that very reason, whether it be a book, a drawing or a movie - the clothes, hair and make-up are gorgeous.

I really like that dress on her. does she actually have that one in the book somewhere? maybe?
I think i just like the colour palette in this one as a whole. :)
I really am torn between Will and Jem. they both have great attributes and they both really do love Tessa... the only solution that i can think of is that Jem ends up dying in the next book and that thought is horrifying, even though it would leave Tessa free for Will....

It's beautiful. You capture them so well and the small details - like the contrast between the gentleness of his hand that's holding her and the other hand that's grasping her almost desperately just adds to it. Beautiful work!
