Dear Fans of LTT and Fans of art,
We spend so much time making fun of things on LTT that I bet most people think Moon & I are the meanest people in real life. We’re not usually. I thought it was time to celebrate some of the beautiful things that come out of the fandom. Cuz there are some. I’m being serious. Don’t think that I’m gonna pretend like they’re great & then show you the most second-hand embarrassing art EVER that surely would star in the “Second-Hand Embarrassing Art Museum” in Manhattan (that doesn’t exist… yet)
Let’s stroll together through the Twilight Museum of Art….
This scene found on google images beautifully depicts the theme of racism throughout the Twilight Saga. Wait. Were you aware of those themes? That instead of being a story of girl stuck between vampire & werewolf it’s really a story of a girl choosing between those paler than her or darker than her? Me neither. Okay, so maybe that’s not what the artist was trying to say, but isn’t art in the eye of the beholder? That’s what I saw here, but I still think it’s beautiful!
Alice, drawn by Rinian, looks as cute as I had pictured her while reading the series. I wish I could be best friends with a cartoon character
LOVE this picture of Bella and the two different colored ribbons representing the choice she has to make. Also love that she seems like a ballerina because, I don’t know about you, but I could’ve used less of a klutzy Bella. By shirohato
This is my favorite piece that I’m sharing with you on our journey through the Twilight museum of art. The artist explained that this is a representation of Rosalie’s unhappy ending. If you look closely you’ll see her ghost in the picture, too. I have goosebumps. Found here on deviant art
There is so much Bella & Edward art out there. Mostly because there are so many great pictures of Robert & Kristen together- so people just use their pictures as inspiration. While often times they can be good (although mostly they’re not), I love this because it’s the artist’s vision of Edward & Bella. Plus added with the quote from New Moon (appropriate placed- not inked in an armpit or doodled on the back of a minivan) it’s incredibly powerful! Found here
See! Wasn’t that fun!? To take a walk through the Twilight art gallery and, maybe laugh a little less, but instead be inspired!? And Look at me! I am being so nice today. Come on- you have to admit it, you like nice UC….
Fine… it’s hard for me too.. I’ll cave… after the jump, enjoy the good stuff….
I believe all the images in the nice rooms in the Twilight art gallary were found on deviant art. I’ve been pretty impressed. Until I saw this one:
And I was confused. Cuz it’s kinda good…. if it’s supposed to be a drawing of the artist’s man. But it’s not. It’s supposed to be Rob during that V-man photoshoot where he holds the fangs. And in that case….. it’s not good. Cuz it’s Fatward. Moon thought he looked like Rob after a 6 month bender on hot pockets and coca-cola. Or that he looks like a mix between Rob/Jared Leto/Michael Buble plus an extra 40 pounds.
Ending with a bang. Yes, today in our very own Twilight art gallary, we have a LIVE model dressed as- you guessed right- Bella during the Isle Esme honeymoon (note the bruises & the feathers & the “I just got laid” haze in her eyes) This beautiful gem was found by our very own Myria at the ever so 2nd-hand embarrassing, TwiCon.
Well, I feel well-rounded today! A little bit of good heavily outweighed with the very bad!
Happy Saturday- gotta run to a nail appointment. I’m getting really classy today because I’m having the technician airbrush Edward on MY nails!
-Discuss stuff on The Forum
-Convo I had with Moon Friday morning: Moon: “Can I DO Rob Saturday morning?” Me: “Fine.” So get over to LTR. Cuz Moon DID Rob
I don’t usually link to the ‘bad’ art I post, but if you are the artist and would like me to link, let me know!
