1. Karou from Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor.
Her blue hair! Her sketch pad and pencil! I was going to draw
her necklace/bracelet of scuppies but it ended up looking
like she was wearing Lisa Simpson's pearls so I left them out.
2. Ismae from Grave Mercy by R. L. LaFevers.
Behold her extra special hairnet of poisoned pearls, AKA cool-sounding
but kind of impractical and not-utilized-to-its-fullest-extent plot device!
Also, featuring Ismae's miniature hideable-under-a-skirtable collapsible crossbow.
3. Katsa from Graceling by Kristin Cashore.
It's kind of hard to see, but she does have a green eye and a blue eye.
Unfortunately, I don't know if I put them on the correct sides.
Fat Princess Elisa from The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson.
Okay, I admit it. I just like drawing Elisa as a fat happy princess regardless of context.
This time though she has her sparkly blue bellybutton-Godstone!
5. Katniss from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
Braid! Bow and arrow! Mockingjay pin! Expressionless face!
How well did you fare in this round of Name That Character? Next time, I'll have to try one that's all dudes and another that's all supporting characters.
As an aside, I've been stuck reading Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas for weeks now and finally had to return Krispy's library book since she couldn't renew it for me anymore. I just couldn't force my way through it but I still feel obligated to do so since I read the first one and got a decent chunk into this one. Krispy has been dying to tell me All the Things and I have been putting her off spoiling me--but should I let her? Tell me! (You can imagine the latter in a Loki voice. TELL MEEEEEEE!)
