FANART CORNER #1 - Daniel "DAY" Altan Wing from LEGEND

Hello, hello :) Kristalia speaking! :D

Apart from being an extreme book addict, i am also an artist. So i have come with a decision to post my fanarts from the books that i have read and share them with you all, with some additional info as well :) 

 Today i will show you my version of Daniel "DAY" Altan Wing from LEGEND, by wonderful author Marie Lu. You can check out my review for Legend , and for Prodigy if you are interested. (p.s. Marie Lu is a wonderful and talented artist as well.)


 Marie Lu is an American young adult author. She is best known for the Legend series, novels set in a dystopian and militarized future. The novels form the basis of a movie to be produced by CBS Films[1] and directed by Jonathan Levine. (-taken from wikipedia)
 [Note: Many apologies, but I'm woefully bad at checking my Goodreads emails! If you'd like to send a note/msg/whatevs, please feel free to email , or catch me on Twitter: . Thanks!]

I write young adult novels, and have a special love for dystopian books. Ironically, I was born in 1984. Before becoming a full-time writer, I was an Art Director at a video game company. Now I shuffle around at home and talk to myself a lot. :)

I graduated from the University of Southern California in '06 and currently live in LA, where I spend my time stuck on the freeways. (

Well, are you ready? Here it is:

My artwork of Day can be found on tumblr as well as deviantart.

Day is described having a long blond hair and piercing blue eyes. I loved his character from the moment i first read about him: strong, cunning, adorable and amazing.

To avoid writing all this again, i will quote what i have written on my deviant art page:
 Technical details:
Sooooooooo.......i've been obessed with Legend books by Marie Lu and i decided to draw Day from it :D As far as i remember, he has blue eyes and long blond hair....And why does he have a red in his hair? Read and find out ^_^
oh god, i can't wait for third book X_X

anyway, took around 3-4 hours, used texture by AuroraWienhold [link] which are awesome and brushes from here [link]
everything else by me and i used some of the standard photoshop brushes.
used photoshop cs5/6 and tablet.

Legend and Day belongs to Marie Lu :iconmree:
Drawing of day belongs to me.

You can use it for your desktop and you can use it wherever you want if you DON'T MODIFY IT, OR IF YOU DON'T CROP THE SIGNATURE OUT(if you want to modify it or something ASK ME FIRST). AND DON'T CLAIM IT AS YOUR OWN. and link back so i know that you used it somewhere.

What made me extremely happy though is that Marie Lu herself had seen it! MARIE LU REBLOGGED MY DRAWING OF DAY ON TUMBLR AND WROTE A COMMENT ♥♥♥♥

This is a reason for me to celebrate!!!!!

If you haven't read Legend series yet, read them, because they are worth it. And news of the upcoming movie make me shiver from excitement! I cannot wait to see the castings they will choose for both Day and June, and hopefully, they will make a good movie out of these books.

What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic’s wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic’s highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country’s most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.

From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths—until the day June’s brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family’s survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias’s death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets.

June and Day arrive in Vegas just as the unthinkable happens: the Elector Primo dies, and his son Anden takes his place. With the Republic edging closer to chaos, the two join a group of Patriot rebels eager to help Day rescue his brother and offer passage to the Colonies. They have only one request—June and Day must assassinate the new Elector.

It’s their chance to change the nation, to give voice to a people silenced for too long.

But as June realizes this Elector is nothing like his father, she’s haunted by the choice ahead. What if Anden is a new beginning? What if revolution must be more than loss and vengeance, anger and blood—what if the Patriots are wrong?

In this highly-anticipated sequel, Lu delivers a breathtaking thriller with high stakes and cinematic action.

 The explosive finale to Marie Lu’s New York Times bestselling LEGEND trilogy—perfect for fans of THE HUNGER GAMES and DIVERGENT!

He is a Legend.
She is a Prodigy.
Who will be Champion?

June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic—and each other—and now their country is on the brink of a new existence. June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government’s elite circles as Princeps Elect while Day has been assigned a high level military position. But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them once again. Just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic’s border cities. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country’s defense. But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything he has. With heart-pounding action and suspense, Marie Lu’s bestselling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion.


Well, i hope you like it :) And till the next time!
