Denna. Dianne. Dinnah. Dyanae. Dinael. Alora. by Gwendolyn12 Denna. Dianne. Dinnah. Dyanae. Dinael. Alora. by Gwendolyn12
Denna from the gorgeous book trilogy The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss, aka *Kvothe~

This might not be the best representation ever but its more like an experimental drawing which ended up as a fanart (due to the fact I'm re-reading the books and amazed once again:B). I wasn't focusing much on representating her face but the feeling around her; the mystery, the fact you cannot comprehend her well and yet you know she's constantly suffering. The flowers and the butterfly are a metaphor for the countless ephemeral relationships shes been in, and how she flies away from them too soon.
"Shes cruel."

I loved playing with scrapbooking material and I wanted to do some more tests with it, and with some new 5.6 graffiti leads I just bought:D theyre awesome.
The title refers to the several names Denna uses along the story. I wonder which one is her real one. Though apparently it is Dianne, but I'm not sure of it:XD:

Thanks for looking!:blowkiss:

I like that you did fanart of her, of course, but I hate her (as a character) with a passion. :stare: She's such a liar and she's going to be sooo much trouble.

This is so beautiful! Your style is really gorgeous.
The colors are wonderful and the eyes are really expressive.
I like the way you shade and detail.

:clap: Wonderful piece!

Well done, though I have to say that it was the title that caught my eye.

I loved that line in the second book.

And of course I had to find this that I believe fits the picture:

"We stare at a fire because it flickers, because it glows. The light is what catches our eyes, but what makes a man lean close to a fire is the warmth you feel when you come near. The same was true of Denna.”

Yeah, I thought a title like this would be fitting.:D

I do too. It's meaningful in so many ways.

I love that description, though I don't know if it's exact... Kvothe is quite biased towards her.:B

Of course, though what can we expect?
We see what we want to see, and for Kvothe, he sees Denna as perfect. I feel for the guy, truly I do, and for that alone do I appreciate his description.

But, enough of that. Denna seems like she really is a good person, but has to hide by running away and avoid being hurt further. It shows when she eats the resin.

"Mooo."
