Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan became a bestseller and inspired fans to bring her Gothic story to life. Today, we’re sharing some of our favorites.
The mark of a good book goes beyond whether or not it hits any bestseller lists. Instead, true devotion and enjoyment comes from the fans, and in the case of Wicked Saints, it comes in the form of stunning fanart.
Author Emily A. Duncan has collected countless pieces of fanart and put them up on her website. There are a variety of styles here, with something for everyone.
As an entertainment website that prides itself on being a part of fandom in every aspect of the word, we jumped at the opportunity to showcase the talent making Wicked Saints fanart. Duncan herself says:
All of the fanart is so mind blowing to me. I minored in illustration and mixed media art in college, but when I graduated and my time became limited, I had to decide whether I would focus my time on my writing or my visual art, and I chose writing because I felt like I could actually achieve what I wanted with writing. Having all of these extremely talented artists take these characters of mine and depict them in ways I wish I could but just couldn’t myself — and to have them all be so perfectly like how I see this cast of kids in my brain — is just really, really cool.
Today, we’re highlighting two artists who have several pieces of Wicked Saints art on display. First up is Nicole Deal, a freelance illustrator who specializes in YA. You can find her pieces below:
