I haven't uploaded anything here in forever, as dA seems to be a deadzone as of late. But here's one of my paintings for school. This is an illustration from the Golden Compass (probably my favorite book of all time). I did two others which I don't like quite as much, you can view all 3 on tumblr here: [link]

Oh my!! The Golden Compass is your favorite book?? Mine as well! I must've read it a dozen times!! And this artwork is awesome, I could tell it was ms. Coulter's daemon from the moment I saw it!! That golden monkey gave me the shivers
Thank you! I don't think we ever heard his name in the books? I'm sure he had one, even if it wasn't mentioned. Yeah, I agree with you there, I'm not really happy with how that one came out. I might make more eventually! Right now Ive got too much other schoolwork and projects going on.
The movie was... disappointing? The visuals were nice but everything kind of felt flat and lacked all of the emotion and power that the books had. To be fair, I think it would be pretty hard to make a satisfying movie of such an incredible book, but it definitely could've been done a lot better.
Yeah, I thought so, he was just like 'that one golden monkey' I think the main problem with Iorek is that he should be a lot bulkier, I think that if he only looked rounder and more muscular, he'd be a lot more bear-like. Look up some photos and stuff, that usually works. x)
Yes, I'm glad your opinion is the same as mine. It's like they attempted to make a trilogy, but mid-filming they changed their mind and wanted to make a flat ending, completely changing the one that was in the book, my god how pissed off I was.
