Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

So here is my latest batch of drawings from the first book of the amazing Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer. I’ve been going through a criminal mastermind phase at the moment, first HIVE, now Artemis Fowl.

I’ve decided to go right back to the start for these. The first drawing is Holly’s first encounter with Artemis. It is set after a disastrous mission for Captain Holly Short of the LEP as her magic ran out. Holly is ordered to go refill by doing the ritual in Ireland which involves taking an acorn from an ancient oak, and planting it elsewhere. Unfortunately for her though, she chooses to go to the one ancient oak that young criminal master mind, Artemis Fowl II, is staking out, looking for fairies. She ends up being kidnapped and held to ransom by Artemis. The second drawing is set in the cell Holly is being kept prisoner in. It is her first conversation with Artemis. In both pictures, it may seem a bit strange that the humans are wearing sunglasses, but it is to avoid being hypnotised by Holly’s mesmer.

These books really are amazing, so if you like my drawings, you should really check the books out. Enjoy…

  1. Ooh, I like these! I had never actually thought of Holly having red hair, but I like the way you’ve drawn her, and you’ve seemed to capture exactly what the characters were thinking on their faces. Awesome work! 🙂

    1. Thank you. I try to keep to the book descriptions of characters, so yes, she is ginger, and quite dark skinned (in comparison to what I saw in my head) but I am over the moon you said you can see the emotions. It’s always the hardest thing to achieve.
      Also, if you like Artemis Fowl, you should so read the HIVE books by Mark Walden. I’ve got a few blogs from those books too. Although some of the earlier drawings aren’t quite so good.


      1. Actually, I found your blog because I was having trouble finding any good H.I.V.E. fanart. That’s my favorite series! And I am frustrated because there is a tragic lack of Franz Argentblum fanart in this world. Anyway, I totally agree with you on the H.I.V.E. thing and appreciate your drawings that I’ve seen so far in relation to the series! 🙂
