Ah, the UST between these two :)

Characters Sonea and Akkarin belong to Trudi Canavan's Black Magician Trilogy, but I was inspired to draw these two again after reading The Magician' Apprentice, her newly released prequel to the old trilogy.

Wow, the way they look at each other tell stories!
By far the best fanart of Sonea and Akkarin I've seen so far :meow:

This is Akkarin from my imagination, really! Well, maybe not in 100% but in 90% for sure. I imagined Sonea more like Ellen Page, but the whole drawing is really pretty. Actually, i've just changed my mind, this IS perfect akkarin (earlier i thought about eoin macken)

Hi :) I'm setting up a blog on Tumblr dedicated to the Black Magician Trilogy, and I was wondering if you would allow me to feature this lovely piece of work on it? I will make sure to give you full credit and link it to your deviantart profile! Heres a link to the blog: (it's still pretty ropey, I only started it yesterday haha!) [link]
Thank you for your time :)

A Sonea more mature and a little more "hard" than what I imagine. But is a really good work, I very like it! :D

Awesome depictions- also read the fanfics you posted on a forum about the different points of views of the characters *even though you posted them quite an age ago....* - all are truly pieces of art =]

definite fave =D

I love it! The expressions on their faces convey so much and I like your rendering of the characters. The robes look far more interesting than the books originally prescribe so that's also a plus.

Thank you! Yeah the robes as described in the book are a lil boring. Even these were a little tiresome to colour :S
