Fanart Friday: His Dark Materials

I can't believe I hadn't chosen Philip Pullman's AMAZING trilogy His Dark Materials before this week! There are so many aspects of these novels which are incredibly visual, the northern lights, the armoured bears, the witches, the gypsies and their boats and of course, the daemons. All of these artists, though very different in approach, capture the magic and fantasy and undeniable creativity of the series. Perhaps my favourite aspect of all of these pictures, are the colours they choose to use. I can't really describe it, but they're exactly the tones and shades that perfectly fit with the mood of the story and the condition of the world Pullman created. Be sure to click through the links to check out the personal websites or DeviantArt galleries of these artists, and give them the love they deserve!

  1. Love His Dark Materials! I especially love the image of Lyra holding Pan in the arctic. It makes me yearn for my own daemon again, lol.

  2. I must have spent hours trying to decide what animal my daemon would be, even now I'm not quite sure.
