The Host: Ian and Wanda Portrait by TheSearchingEyes The Host: Ian and Wanda Portrait by TheSearchingEyes
Melanie/Wanderer and Ian O'Shea from the Host!
Portrait painted is PS with a Wacom Tabelt, based of pictures of the actors that are going to portray the characters in the upcoming film instalment.

I'm actually quite proud of the scar on her cheek :D It looks badass

So excited for this movie, mainly because Jake Abel was cast, but I am quite happy that Soairse Ronan was cast. It's kind of nice that they have worked together in "The Lovely Bones."
This painting is very nice! It makes me even more excited for the movie!

Was Jake Abel in The Lovely Bones? Lol, I don't remember :D They're both not what I expected, but for The Host the story is more important than the looks of the actors, I think, so it'll turn out fine I hope :) Glad you like the painting! Can't wait for the movie either, wish it were this year in stead of the next :( Filming is starting soon though, so I hope we'll get some pics...

Yeah he played Brian Nelson, the one that eventually beats Susie's father. He wasn't in the movie a lot, but he's the reason I watched (and read the book :D). I'm hoping to read The Host before the movie comes out, so I guess it's a good thing it's not coming out this year lol, but the wait is terrible. I hope we'll get pics soon too! Jake apparently described his wardrobe already [link] So at least there's some progress :)

I must admit I know very little about The Host but since Saoirse was cast as Melanie I have grown interested in it (I should probably read the book). The story seems a little deeper than Twilight which is great. Many say Saoirse would better suit the character of Pet rather than Melanie, physically-speaking, but I'm sure her acting skills will make up for it!

Anyway, I like your interpretation here. Miss Ronan plays deep, broken characters so very well. You just want to give her a hug.

You should definitely read it! A lot of people are prejudiced because of Twilight, but The Host very different, much more adult, much more realistic and much more 'human' - though it is about aliens :D I totally agree with Saoirse being a perfect casting choice for Pet, rather than Mel. I love her as an actress but I was expecting something different for Melanie :-/ Someone more "traditionally pretty" and most of all: tan ^^;

Thanks for your comment! :hug:

I try to keep an open mind with Twilight, everyone is entitled to their own interests after all. I guess I just didn't connect with it in the way I did Harry Potter. I like the sound of The Host because the characters seem a little more vulnerable than supernaturally powerful vampires.

I agree that Saoirse is attractive, but in an unusual way, her skin is like porcelain. Hopefully they don't try to spray-tan her for the movie. :D

And... Why does Mel has got that scar? ^^;

TheSearchingEyes Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2012
Thanks for you comment! :hug: Well, it's not really a beard, more like scruff :D Cause I guess if you live in a cave, you can't shave every day :D And Mel has a scar... Because Mel has a scar over her cheek in the book? :confused: Y'know, repeatedly beaten up by Jared and hurting her face against the cave walls and stuff :shrug:

Oh! Yeah =D I guess they couldn't ^^;
But I figured out the scar was more like a "circle scar", 'cuz he opened it again, then, with a rock... and it was more or less on her cheekbone :O_o:
LOL! Haha :P Anyways... it's great! :w00t!:
