Fan Friday: Jemina paints about “a universe you want to be involved in”

Every Friday here at The Mortal Instruments Source is Fan Friday, where we feature a  fan who has demonstrated creativity and passion for Cassandra Clare, The Mortal Instruments or The Infernal Devices.

Tessa and Will kiss in "The Infernal Devices." Look at those runes, aren't they flawless! Painting by Jemina Venter.

We all know how important drawing is to our Clary Fray in “The Mortal Instruments”.

It’s also quite important to Jemina, a “Mortal Instruments” and “Infernal Devices” fan that might give Clary a run for her money. But please, call her Jem.

Jem began drawing when she was five years old but the digital painting came only six years ago. She works with a Realistic painting style on her Wacom Cintiq, a graphic tablet, and admits that she would like to try out other styles but isn’t convinced she could attempt them just yet.

While she’s not exactly sure how she got the art bug, it’s been a part of her life for quite some time and she draws inspiration from those that intrigue her.

“I paint what interests me ,” she said, “and alot of that is pop culture. My favourite TV and movie characters, and more recently my favorite novel characters. I am a huge fan of romance, you’ll notice a decent amount of my paintings and drawings involve kissing or couples, so whenever I find a ‘ship I am interested in, it’s very likely that I’ll end up painting the pair.”

Jem started drawing “The Mortal Instruments” and “The Infernal Devices” in March of this year and she wishes “it had been sooner,” admitting that she discovered the books by accident while browsing a local department store.

The process seems like an intricate one so what exactly goes into crafting a work?

“I will usually figure out who I want to paint first,” Jem said, “which isn’t too difficult as I have a backlog of zillions of things I want to paint. I’ll research a little on Google images, or snap some of my own screen shots for reference. The way I sketch depends entirely on the moment. Sometimes I’ll do the circle, then lines for nose, eyes, mouth and blocky arms, legs and body. Other times I’ll jump straight in and start sketching it as close as possible to what it should look like. After that, it’s straight in with blocking in basic colours then smudge them. Sketch in the eyes, nose and mouth then take away the lineart. More blocking, smudging, blocking, smudging, etc. Add in texture. It’s fairly repetitive and detailed, but desperately fun.”

Jace and Clary in Dirty Sexy Alley Scene. Beautiful runes once again. Painting by Jemina Venter.

She said there will be a video up on YouTube this week that shows the entire process from sketch to completion for those inspiring artists.

As inspiration plays a big part in Jem’s paintings, what is it about Cassandra Clare’s two series that inspires her?

“I love romance, and I just fell in love with these characters and their universe only a little ways into City of Bones,” Jem said. “The couples in these series are amazing; I love the different dynamics of each couple, Jace and Clary, Alec and Magnus, Izzy/Simon/Maia, Will/Tessa/Jem.  The never quite getting there, the back and forth of will they/won’t they, all of the obstacles they need to overcome – it’s just written so fantastically as to keep you hooked.  The wit in dialogue, especially of Jace, Will and Magnus, is hilarious that you can’t help but laugh aloud. It’s just a universe you want to be involved in I think, and that inspires me to want to paint the characters.”

Her favorite characters to draw in “The Mortal Instruments” are Jace and Clary, and while she prefers to draw Tessa and Will in “The Inferal Devices,” she is “prepared to be swayed to Tessa and Jem pending the expected awesomeness of Clockwork Prince.”

Jem said that she has several paintings in the works, including Isabelle and Simon and perhaps the Seelie Court scene.

“But I think I’ll give Jem and his violin a start this weekend.”

Fan Friday: Crafting the ‘City of Fallen Angels’ costume contest

Every Friday here at The Mortal Instruments Source is Fan Friday, where we feature a  fan who has demonstrated creativity and passion for Cassandra Clare, The Mortal Instruments or The Infernal Devices.

Surely everyone remembers the “City of Fallen Angels” costume contest that took  “The Mortal Instruments” fandom by storm a couple of months ago.

You’ll be surprised to know that it didn’t start off as a costume contest.

The contest idea started as a collaboration between Hiba, of Woven Strands, and Regan, of Thoughts on YA books for the not so Young Adult.

Koneco-chan as Izzy Lightwood. "We have been completely and utterly impressed by your creativity in portraying Isabelle Lightwood. We see her personality in your posture and the gaze in your eyes. What impressed us most is your ability to think out of the box. The angel wings are a smart way of expressing how Isabelle Lightwood is half angel and half human."

Originially they sought out to do an article about the top fashions in “The Mortal Instruments” but then Hiba thought they could take it a step further.

“I wanted to take [Regan's] “TMI Top Fashions” idea to the next level,” she said. “I suggested –to Regan– turning the Article into a contest and she was all for it.”

Hiba credits Regan for the costume contest’s maturation.

“If it weren’t for her the CoFA Costume Contest wouldn’t have happened,” she said.

The contest also wouldn’t have happened had it not been for Hiba’s love for “The Mortal Instruments” series.

“As a person who strives for creativity everyday and loves to think out of the box, I’m not easily impressed,” she said. “I was hungry for a series that would shake me to the core and Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices fulfilled that.

“I’m also a sucker for forbidden love. There is something about falling in love with someone you can’t have that intrigues me. Cassandra Clare established this powerful idea successfully in her books when she made us all believe that Jace was Clary’s brother. Only brilliant minds take such a risk, especially in our generation.”

The contest drew over 6,000 hits on Woven Strands and 24 submissions from dedicated “Mortal Instruments” faithful.

But that was the easy part.

“It was very hard choosing a winner,” Hiba said. “All the contestants worked so hard and they were all so creative. Some of them actually made their own costumes or part of their costumes. I mean, if this doesn’t show how truly amazing Cassie’s fans are, I don’t know what does.”

But there had to be a winner.

Hiba and Regan judged the contestants based on the creativity of the costume, the scenery of the photo and the accuracy of both.

The winner was announced as Venessa, also known as Koneco-chan, who posed as Isabelle Lightwood.

“We have been completely and utterly impressed by your creativity in portraying Isabelle Lightwood,” Hiba wrote on Woven Strands. “We see her personality in your posture and the gaze in your eyes.”

So I have to ask. Will there be something similar as “Clockwork Prince”‘s release date creeps closer?

“Everyone that participated in the CoFA Costume Contest has asked me to do this contest again for the upcoming books,” Hiba said. “I think I most likely will. It would be very interesting to see the costumes the fans come up with for the Infernal Devices Series. Especially since the fashion is from a different era (Late 1800’s).”

I speak for everyone when I say, we can’t wait to see what is in store next.
