🎨 Fanart Friday: Heartstopper, Six of Crows and Carry On 🎨

Woah okay so this week…I finished not one…not two…not three…but FOUR fanart pieces?!? Across three fandoms?? This is unprecedented for me, I swear.

‘Heartstopper’: Tara and Darcy

A Tara (above) and Darcy (bottom) version of the original Heartstopper comic cover

‘Heartstopper’ is a YA contemporary webcomic/graphic novel by Alice Oseman, following the adorkable gay romance between Nick and Charlie. Tara Jones and Darcy Olsson are two secondary characters who are in a lesbian relationship.

This one started out just as a pencil sketch-plan of a much larger, pen and ink version, but everything just started flowing and I was really happy with it! It was the first time I’d drawn Tara and Darcy and it’s pretty rare for me to actually successfully draw characters how I see them in my head. What really blew my mind though was that ALICE LIKED AND SHARED IT!! AHH!!! I wasn’t even expecting her to SEE it! I was having such a crappy Monday and that brought the light back.

‘Heartstopper’: Charlie Spring x ‘Everywhere’

Charlie Spring…thinking about Nick Nelson

I’d struggled with Charlie for a bit (sketched like 6 different versions of him here) but in this one he just seemed to materialise. I made a little thought bubble with lyrics from ‘Everywhere’ by Fleetwood Mac, a fab song included in Alice’s own playlist for ‘Heartstopper’ (find it on Spotify here!)…and I have big plans for a ‘Heartstopper’ fanart series relating to this song!

‘Six of Crows’: The Dregs

The Dregs (L-R): Matthias, Nina, Inej, Jesper, Wylan, Kaz

Now this one I’d started way back in 2018, and had inked all the outlines already, which meant that when I ended up finishing it a couple days ago, there were a few things I wanted to change about placement and proportions but alas. I’m still mostly happy with it though! I added glitter that sadly my scanner cannot quite capture. (Though if you’re curious, I posted the glitter shots here.) This piece was inspired by ‘What’s Up Danger’ by Black Caviar and Blackway.

‘Carry On’: Baz Pitch – ‘Make Way For The King!’

Baz Pitch spelling traffic out of the way. See more photos here.

This was left over from Inktober 2019’s ‘RIDE’ prompt! Based on a pretty emotional scene in ‘Carry On’ by Rainbow Rowell – I can’t say too much without it turning into a spoiler, but basically Baz Pitch (the main figure in this) is not a happy boy in this bit of the book. But luckily(?) he’s got his PAL, his BUDDY, his no-homo, absolutely NOT enemy-turned-lover Simon Snow to support him!! This one was done with alcohol markers and glitter pen (I just add glitter to everything at this point).

If you’ve gotten this far, thank you so much! What awesome fanarts have you seen this week? What fandoms do you feel don’t get enough fanart?
