Art Attack 2/3/13

It's almost Super Bowl time so this post's theme is going to be:
The Purple and Yellow Crazy-Mean-Eyed Birds
and
The San Francisco 49ers
    
WOOOHOOOO!
I say that's the theme, but there isn't really any art that I like with either of those teams. So the art that I'm showing is going to be very loosely related. In case you don't already know, the name "49ers" comes from the name given to the gold prospectors who arrived in Northern California around 1849 during the California Gold Rush. Since I haven't found any gold rush themed art that I like enough to post, I'm gonna show art that I like with SF's colors.

Red by Ashmantle

Very...red, but I like it.

More orange than red and gold, but, whatever, it's cool.

When I put in a search for red and gold art, most of what I found were dragons. Maybe the 49ers should have a dragon as their mascot. In a roundabout way it could kinda make sense. In some myths dragons were said to hoard gold, and the name of the 49ers came from the gold rush. So for our mascot, instead of having this:

We could have this:

Red and Gold Dragon by drakhenliche

We'd win the super bowl every year with that on our side. Or even if we had this:

Smaug by DragonsAndBeasties

Awwwww. ♥


Oh and here's some ravens, and purple. ☺

Sky Purple With Ravens by merakana

This next one is even mean-eyed.

Raven by Rz00

I have to admit, their mascot is a little better than ours, but I think that instead of their mascot being this raven,

it would be way awesome if their mascot was this Raven.

Raven the Titan by W-E-Z



I honestly have to say that the main reason my family even watches the super bowl is for the food and commercials. ☺

So having said that, I've decided to move on to a different theme. I'm currently reading the last book in the series, "Wheel of Time" by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson.

Here's some of my favorite W.O.T. themed art.

WARNING: MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS

Moiraine by Westling
Wow, she captured her perfectly. This is exactly how I imagined Moiraine to be.

W.O.T. Badges by vanilla-rain

I think Matrim an Lan look perfect, but I imagined Rand, Perrin, and Nyneave to look slightly different, especially Perrin.

Caged Logain by Dubisch


Birgitte by ReddEra


And finally, here is the best that I've seen of the three Ta'veren.

I wish that I could find a picture of the Seanchan Empress with The Prince of Ravens. The Prince is my favorite character and I especially love how he acts when he's with his wife. I'm not that great an artist, but maybe I'll try to draw my own fanart of them.

I hope you all have fun, whether you're watching the super bowl or not.  ☺
