EoE: Cathy by fdasuarez EoE: Cathy by fdasuarez
I decided to make a little series of portraits of the main characters of the book East of Eden, because Im overwhelmed by it, loved it so much. This would be a young Cathy, trying to get as close as possible to what I had imagined while reading the book. (By the way, I wanted to make them in modern clothes.)

She has such a beautiful, angelic face, but her eyes are empty, warmless, and thinking about her personality gives me cold shivers down the spine. Nevertheless, she was my second favourite character from the book (after Caleb). I know it sounds strange, but she was such an unique, complex character, that I couldn't help myself.

Your art is SO beautiful.  I was curious, however.. What brushes do you use for the gorgeous hair? :)  I'd really appreciate it!

That is my favorite book, I love the message it carries. I read it more than four years ago and I still ponder over it. I love the facial expression.
Thou Mayest!

Once you know her character, this portrait becomes genuinely creepy.

Ah, the memories...
I read this a long time ago... My grandpa gave it to me, from his library, but then my mom saw me reading it and told me that it was too strong for a thirteen year old girl, anyway, I was so intrigued that I kept reading. So yeah... this was one of the books that kinda traumatized me. But I regret nothing :dummy:
Was Cathy the one who had something wrong with her front teeth? Like... she used to hit them with her fingernail when she was nervous?
