introducing holly stackhouse and james northman by starsandpolkadots introducing holly stackhouse and james northman by starsandpolkadots
To the True Blood fans: This is not(!) True Blood fanart! It's just my characters dressing up as True Blood characters! So please refrain from any comment like "That totally doesn't look like them!" ;)

***

I am in the middle of rewatching the second season of True Blood and because it's Halloween time (and I'm not gonna be able to make a full, polished Halloween picture with my main peeps), this just sort of happened. Granted, James is not as hot and DAYUM as Alexander Skarsgard but at least both of them got the same height and hair colour so, in a way, this was inevitable. Besides, I think James looks quite nice in black. :D

Holly joined him as Sookie here, just for the fun of it! Also, she has to make sure that, without his glasses, James doesn't bump into walls or trip over random stuff. POOR GUY IS BASICALLY BLIND WITHOUT HIS GLASSES.

Btw, I was a huge TB fan for a while and I love the first two seasons but... is it just me or are the later seasons just kinda... dumb? Okay, I admit I haven't seen most of them but what I have seen (and read about it) was really ridiculous. In a very, very bad and off-putting way. :/

Also, this is quite obviously just a quick sketch with some lazy colours slapped on! Don't mind me! :)

I always feel a bit "sorry" for the people who like these two together, though. It's just not going to happen and... yeah. :D

Thank yooouu! :)

Haha! Well, it's a shame, but I also love them as best buds! I like their relationship, it's kinda like they would do anything, say anything with each other! :XD: Like a much less hardcore 'friends with benefits'
Lol I can't explain it!:XD: I'm glad that their really close!

Haha glad I read the description. I was all 'Sookie would never pierce there!'. But love your characters in costume. Good work.

I'm glad about that, too! :D It's always SUPER irritating when people don't even bother reading descriptions and ask/complain about stuff right away in the comments while ALL THE INFORMATION IS ALREADY THERE! xD

Glad you still like this, even though it's not actually showing Eric and Sookie. :D

I don't watch True Blood but I do like the snazzy looks on both of your characters. Like, serious dude. Hot frackin' damn, freaking gorgeous.

And I also like the way you really give everyone individuality. Like, even in these sketches (which should be full on works, I mean this is incredible) you can see how Holly's nose is a bit thinner in comparison to James' and James' right hand and how they're facing and argh! I just love your work so much. And like, you have really opened my eyes as to differentiation between characters. Like the little quirks, their noses, their eyes, their hair. Do you get it? I'm not very good at explaining tbh ^^''

TL;DR I love your work and you have taught me to grow as an artist so much.

SDFFSDF such a great comment, I can't even! I love it when people actually notice all the different tiny things I like to put thought into! TOTALLY MAKES MY DAY! And I get what you mean, definitely! :D Putting little details into characters' looks is what I like most. Kinda. :D

Gosh, thank you so much, I'm blushing all over the place here! :heart:

LOVE THIS!! I am a big TB fan and an even bigger Eric fan and I think James embodies him quite well here (son needs to get him some contact lenses).

James doesn't really like wearing contacts! Besides, he's quite cute with the glasses! I've reached a point at which, to me, he looks just WEIRD and wrong without them. :D Still... it's fun dressing him up like this. :3

Sooo glad you like this! :heart:

Oh man, I love True Blood, so I can't tell you how much I appreciate seeing Holly and James as Sookie and Eric! I definitely agree that James looks very nice in black, and with his hair back like that, oh my gosh. :heart: So handsome! Holly is the cutest Sookie ever, oh my gosh. (If I was into the Halloween spirit, one of my girls was definitely going to be Sookie, too, haha!) I absolutely love the cute smile on her face, and her hair tied back like that is really pretty! Geez, I wish my quick sketches looked this wonderful. :heart:

Man, I totally agree with the later seasons not being as good as the earlier ones! Especially the one that just passed. (Seriously, Bill? SERIOUSLY?) But I'll continue to watch it, mostly for Sookie and Eric. :'D

Yeah, James kinda looks like a completely different person here. Weird but at the same time strangely appealing. :D I might dress him up more often in the future! :la:

Aaaaanyway, so glad you like, hun! :heart:

James sieht ungewohnt aus ohne Brille. Hoffentlich tut sich die Pissnelke nichts, so halbblind. XD

Oh my gosh...way too much awesomeness going on in this for me to handle! SOooooooo awesome! They look perfect as Sookie and Eric! :) Any chances of doing the rest of the gang in costumes? That would be freakin awesome! haha Anyway...I have to say that "yes" the last couple of TB seasons haven't been all that great. I mean, if it weren't for the yummyness that is Alex Skarrsgard, I would probably not watch it anymore...well, that and the always awesome, Lafayette! Pam is pretty badass too:) Ok, I've said "awesome" way too many times now...so yeah...AWESOME WORK! ;) lol

Nope, I won't be able to draw anyone else in costumes. :/ Bummer but work is really eating up my life right now. I won't complain, though. I need the experience!

And I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks like that! I might still watch a few eps of the later seasons but... meh. Probably not. xD

Anyway, glad you like this! :D
