“Go to madelinetodd.com…they’ve got a new thing called…uh… FR E SH F AN AR TS…*wheezy laughter*”

Yep, I’ve got some FRESH FAN ARTS for you guys!

I haven’t really posted any of my art since late June (oops), and I feel like I’ve improved a lot since then, what with the art class at my school and just a little more experience in general. I’m excited to share some of these with you guys, I hope you enjoy them!

Professor X, X-Men: First Class . (I watched it for the first time in about three or four years in September; I felt the judging eyes of my cats on me as I cried during the “I can’t feel my legs” scene.)

Newt Scamander, The Crimes of Grindelwald. (I saw it a few weeks ago, and it was ASTOUNDING. Certainly didn’t deserve that low of a rating from Rotten Tomatoes.)

 

Well, thank you for sticking around long enough to see more of my art and endure the deluge of book reviews! Once I get some more done, I will definitely post some more. Have a nice day, and stay safe!

Again, I’m out of clever ways to say that I’ve got a bunch more fan arts

Ah! I forgot to mention in my last post…

Despite my lack of a Book Review Tuesday this week, I do have LOADS of fan arts for you guys! I’m so happy to share them all with you, and I hope you enjoy…as well as survive the tidal wave of nerdiness, of course.

Without further ado, behold…fan arts.

Sally Hawkins. I was inspired to draw this after a wonderful dream I had about meeting her in a bookstore.

Courtney Crumrin. I almost cosplayed her at Comic Con last Friday, but I didn’t have time to throw together a good cosplay, much less dye my hair blonde.

Baz Grimm-Pitch (Carry On). I drew this last night after re-reading “Carry On”.

 

Well, that’s it for this batch of fan arts! This summer holds endless possibilities, and I hope to fill my sketchbook up with more and more art! Until next time!

 

RELEASE THE FAN ARTS! *Maniacal Laughter*

Spring Break (and the brief time before) has been fairly productive as far as fan arts go. I’ve filled up a sketchbook and have already begun filling up another one that I got for Christmas. (So far, there’s three drawings in that one.) Hope you enjoy! *more maniacal laughter ensues*

LA and Sequoia National Park 2018

Hi, everyone!

As I said earlier, the reason I wasn’t able to make another BRT this week was due to my vacation in California. I had an AMAZING time! Figured I might as well showcase a few of my highlights from my vacation. Enjoy!

 

IMG_1942.jpg

Our first stop after landing was Meltdown Comics in LA. MAN, it was such a fantastic comic shop! I’m really sad it’s closing.

But hey-at least I got a few Meltdown stickers, as well as a B.P.R.D. trade paperback (which I held up like Rafiki holding Simba in The Lion King the entire duration of the visit). I ended up reading it at least six times. Yep.

IMG_1959.jpg

Believe it or not, this is Sequoia National Park. Not Isla Nublar.

*Jurassic Park theme blaring* *T-Rex roar*

IMG_1983.jpg8IMG_1985.jpg

These two were taken at the Giant Forest, which houses many giant Sequoias. They were soooo beautiful! One of the park rangers suggested that we hug one of them while we were at the park, and described it as “like hugging a wall”. As it turned out, that was fairly accurate. 😜

IMG_2017.jpgIMG_2012.jpg

 
IMG_2020.jpgIMG_2019.jpg

These were all taken by Hospital Rock, which was fairly close to the park entrance. I swear, if there’s any place on Earth (*ahem* Orbona) that’s most like the Wandering Forest, it had to be there. I honestly wouldn’tve been surprised if some of the vegetation got up and ate a bird or something.

(Psst, anyone know the way to the heart?)

General Sherman, the world’s largest tree!

Lake Hume, in King’s Canyon National Park.

IMG_2093.jpg

On a far weirder note…this monstrosity was in this tiny, sketchy town near Sequoia. The only reason we could think of to construct such a thing was to scare off them ‘squatches.

Who knows.

IMG_2172.jpg

We visited the NHMLA after our visit to Sequoia. I had an amazing time, and I enjoyed a bit of geeking out and childhood nostalgia. Here we have the skulls of an Einiosaurus, Styracosaurous, and Triceratops.

IMG_2182.jpg

SQUAAAAAAAAWK!

IMG_2209.jpgIMG_2210.jpg

I forget what the thing on the left is, but whatever it is, it CRACKS ME UP. (Also, that poor lil Hyracotherium is in for a big surprise…)

“REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!”

IMG_2207.jpg
Pakicetus, one of the first whale ancestors. I kinda had a mental freakout when I saw this guy, as I grew up watching waaaaaay too much Walking with Prehistoric Beasts. (Okay, technically the one they have is Ambulocetus, which evolved some time later, but you get the idea.)

 

I hope you’re all enjoying your spring break! See ya later!

 

“I’m not a baby, I’m a Fan Art!”

Ten hypothetical points for awesomeness if you got my (incredibly weird) reference. 😏

Yep, that’s right, I GOT MORE FAN ARTS! I’ve been fairly productive, since I’ve had to stay home for a while because of my cold. Don’t worry, I touched on some very important events when doing so..

Without further ado, FAN ARTS!

A late night doodle of David Bowie in the “Life On Mars?” music video, 1973.

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 4.53.55 PM.png

Johann Krauss. This is the first time I’ve drawn him how he is in the B.P.R.D. comics, which I started reading fairly recently. I’d say I’m pretty close to falling in love.

Fitz Vacker, a.k.a. the closest thing I have to a fictional crush in the Keeper of the Lost Cities series. This was drawn for Keeper Day, on February 12.

Abe Sapien and Princess Nuala 😍. Nuala is holding a copy of a collection of Alfred Lord Tennyson poems, from which she reads a passage of “In Memoriam” in Hellboy II. *single tear rolls down cheek*

*SWOONS*

 

Well, I hope you enjoyed my fan arts! See you next Tuesday, or if not, very soonish!
