I actually cant believe it.... if i were to imagine them at all (which i dont ever do because I cant and end up placing charcters with different hair colours which isnt helpful) Simon and clary would look EXACTLY how they should.
I can imagine Simon doing exactly that and Clary going of with jace to the institute or city of bones looking lke that.
You are brilliant.. and im pretty sure Ive already commented on this.... owh well!! :)

Clary looks beautiful in the picture, but a lot younger than she is.

You know, there are actually a good number of people who've said something like that but I stand by this rendition of Clary, not necessarily as the most accurate but the most like what I perceive her.

Clary's is described looking young even for her age and is called elfin (or rather fairy like) features.

Speaking from my own experience and that of my niece who I based this drawing on... when the both of us were fifteen, which she is now and I was fifteen years ago, all wiry, small, curly-haired masses of attitude and sass, we were/are constantly getting picked on for looking like 12-years old. Everyone in my family is that sort of person who perpetually looks 2-5 years younger than what we are.

Everyone can read something from the text, which is great, because taking something from a book and being able to add in your own Point-Of-View is what makes a decent book an amazing book.

But in this regard, and maybe in this regard only, I have the fortune of having intimate and first person knowledge of who the subject Clary is based on and how she would go about. Not everybody reading the Mortal Instruments series knows people who're of that personality or body-type so they immediately adjust their mental image to suit what they understand better and feel more comfortable with.

I've had people explain to me how Jace's hair should be darker or he should be fitter, how Clary's tits should be bigger or hair straighter or longer or shorter and I've just got to sort of except we're at an impasse.

It's not that I think I'm more right, it's that you've got an image in your own head to work with and I've got mine. Sort of wonderful to think of how many different images and interpretations can come from a couple of words on a page, dontch'a think?



ah, babble aside ^^; I'm glad you liked it. Thanks for the listing.
