Fairy Tail Fanart

So since my latest anime joy has come in the form of the anime/manga Fairy Tail I couldn’t resist doing some chibi artwork for the con season. Though increasing in popularity, I haven’t seen an infestation of Fairy Tail fanart yet I felt this needs to be corrected! And if you haven’t watched or read Fairy Tail yet, then you are missing out.

Despite the fact that my friend is WAY ahead of me reading the manga, I have gotten a lot further in the series and it just keeps getting better. I love the cast of characters. In the same stream as One Piece, I’d say it’s really the characters and their interactions that makes this series so fun to watch. I love the mage theme within guilds as well.

So here I have drawn the coolest team in the Fairy Tail Guild:

Natsu Dragneel who is nicknamed Salamander. He is a fire eater, a  rare dragon slayer magic. He was raised by a dragon who mysteriously went missing.

Gray Fullbuster who uses ice magic. He has a tendency to strip without realizing it which leads to some amusement. As for Natsu and Gray – fire and ice just can’t get along, can they?

Lucy Heartphilia who wields her keys, calling on celestial spirits she has collected. Though I think Plu is more of a pet for her, I think he’s cute. ^^

Last but not least, Erza Scarlet… who often ends up dragging them out of a mess, tagging along, or scaring Natsu and Gray senseless (trying to get them to get along). Possessor of insane strength and a unique armor magic that lets her instantly equip armor (or a bunny outfit?) with different magical properties.

I didn’t have time to do Erza before the last con but I’m glad I still got hers done ❤ I made these guys into a bookmark, keychains, stickers, and prints. Look forward to hopefully meeting some fairy tail fans at the cons I’ll be attending 😀 You can click the images for the links to where the art is posted on DA.


Fairy Tail Anime!

Ever since I began reading this awesome manga I knew it could follow in the footsteps of great series like One Piece and Naruto and now… the long awaited anime is out! I just finished watching the first two episodes last night and will probably end up re-watching them with friends. So far they’ve lived up to all of my hopes. Here is a brief summary of Fairy Tail:

“Lucy is a 17-year-old girl, who wants to be a full-fledged mage. One day when visiting Harujion Town, she meets Natsu, a young man who gets sick easily by any type of transportation. But Natsu isnt just any ordinary kid, he’s a member of one of the world’s most infamous mage guilds: Fairy Tail.”

Here is the opening song!

Just imagine what the One Piece world would have been life if instead of an era of pirates, it was an era of mages. The world runs on every day magic, charms sold in stores, and any decent mage a member of guild of varying respectability. Fairy Tail is among the most notorious of these guilds–filled with powerful (but sometimes trouble-some) mages. Full of life and good humor and intentions, it’s easy to love this guild and it’s members.

While easy to compare to One Piece, it stands solidly on its own. Very memorable and easy to love characters, it’s full of humor, action, drama, magic, and heart. While I find Natsu’s expressions as endearing as Luffy’s, I think his personality’s a bit cooler (at least when he’s not suffering motion sickness which is just funny). I adore Natus’ rival, Gray, and find is unconscious habit of stripping a constant source of amusement… Even more amusing is when these two fight. I suppose fire and ice just were never meant to get along. 🙂

From what I remember, the first two episodes are following the manga very closely. Nothing to gripe about. Characters translated well and are fun to see come to life. I’m really enjoying the color pallet and animation.

If you’ve put off reading the manga, now’s a great time to start watching the anime! So what are you waiting for?
