Ellie Owen
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United Kingdom
History student at the University of York. Gamer, writer, reader, and artist.

Has dreams of being a published author but hasn't finished writing anything in years.

Spends an awful lot of time reading YA sci-fi and fantasy, and draws lots of fanart for it.

Thanks for looking at my page! Commission info is over here, if you're interested :)


Grisha - The Heretic and the Saint by littleschemer
Grisha - The Heretic and the Saint
Alina and the Darkling from the Grisha trilogy - it's been far too long since I've drawn anything Grisha, and about time I drew these two together :)

I wanted to draw something super self-indulgent while ill and stressing about my dissertation, this did the job well :)
Mistborn by littleschemer
Vin from the Mistborn books by Brandon Sanderson :)

I can't believe it took me this long to finally draw some Mistborn fanart! The Mistborn books are probably my favourite books, and Vin is one of my very favourite characters, so I hope I did her justice. I spent ages on this, mostly because of that rose window in the background, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out :) 

Background architecture is based on York Minster, because pretty.
The Lunar Chronicles - Crash Site by littleschemer
The Lunar Chronicles - Crash Site
Cress and Thorne from the Lunar Chronicles, after their crash landing in the desert :) For a series that I absolutely adore, I haven't drawn anywhere near enough Lunar Chronicles fanart, so I'm setting about fixing that.

I felt like I hadn’t really challenged myself with a picture for a while, so I put myself out of my comfort zone with this one - multiple characters, complex environment, detailed sci-fi stuff, warm colour scheme. It was a real challenge, but I think it turned out well. This was also an experiment with shading in black and white first and then adding colour (WIPs can be found on my tumblr if you're interested) and while I think I prefer working in colour, I do think that this came out looking good :)

Teren Santoro by littleschemer
Teren Santoro
Teren from The Young Elites by Marie Lu.

I probably messed up the foreshortening on his arms because I always do, but I’ve spent way too long on this already for what was meant to be a quick picture. I just love drawing plate armour so much, especially in this colour scheme - as soon as Teren showed up in the book, I knew I’d end up drawing him.
The Reaper by littleschemer
The Reaper
Enzo from The Young Elites by Marie Lu.

These characters are so much fun to draw - this series contains so many opportunities for ridiculous fantasy armour, it's great. 

I'm normally not great with contrasting colour schemes, but I think I got it to work here, so yay. Really happy with how this sketchier style is working out, I can finish pictures so much faster like this :)

Oh man, I just realized I've seen your work all over Leigh Bardguo's Tumblr! And you've drawn Kaladin Stormborn. *o* Haha, just looking at your work - I was totally planning on reading Throne of Glass next.

Thank you for favoriting a piece from my Kickstarter!

It’s an 300+ page art book about a shapeshifter convict and a bankrupt princess unraveling the link between magic and science. I’ve been working on it for five years and now the project is ending in a few days!  I’m really grateful for everyone’s contributions and support like your faves (especially to people who’ve been following me from the conception of this project)! So thank you! :D (Big Grin)

Thanks! I love your Grisha art as well, by the way - your style is absolutely gorgeous and fits the series so well. Throne of Glass is great, I totally recommend reading the series. The first book's good, but it gets awesome in the sequels :)

I can't believe I almost missed your Kickstarter! I really love your art and the stories sound great as well, so I just backed you and can't wait to see the finished book!

Anyway, I love your art! (: Especially the drawing of Howel. Just like imagined him to look.

Hey :)
Thanks a lot! I'm glad you like it, I was wondering what people who'd read the fic would think of the picture. I was going to draw the rest of the characters, but I kind of got distracted...
Thanks for all of your reviews on the fic, btw :)

Well, if you have time, Luck would be a good one to draw! xD
And once again, noo problem (:
