Mortal Instruments fan art @ 05:55 pm

Location (or, in some REALLY old entries, insult to Detect Button): Is the detect button dead? I could kick it if you want.
Soundtrack: SSBB - Final Battle in G Major

So, quite a few months ago, when pathvain_aelien and I were still reading the Mortal Instruments series, she asked me to draw a scene from the series in MS Paint in the same style I did PrtSc Land (the third version, that is) and post it on LJ once we finally finished. So I chose to draw the scene where Jace jumps out of the Malachi Configuration, but most of the time I didn't really want to draw it, so I didn't finish until a month or two ago, and was also a bit reluctant to post it once I was done. But here it finally is.

Note that:
- this was the first time I had ever drawn Jace or Alec (EDIT: Wait, the first time was when I did a sketch of this on paper to help find things to make sure to keep in the right relative sizes)
- some MS Paint techniques I used here were the first time I ever tried to use them (I didn't even practice them first), explaining things like why Alec's jacket looks like it's made from MissingNo. skin when I was just trying to texturize it
- I'm fairly certain Jace wasn't wearing Shadowhunter gear in that scene (but I may be wrong), and have no clue what Alec was wearing (in fact, his outfit here is based on the official art on mortalinstruments.com because of that)
- I originally had drawn all four seraph blades, but two just wound up being obscured by the Malachi Configuration
- the room's colors are almost completely random
- despite all of this, I still think it actually turned out mostly decent

I LIKE IT.
And I like that series. FOr some reason I feel like I'm looking forward to the next book. But um, I've already read it.
