Ok, I’m new here so I hope I’m putting this in the right category and it gets positive interest. If otherwise, apologies in advance.
I am writing an LP fanfic novelization of the Lost Heir Trilogy on SomethingAwful forums. I’d post a link but A) it’s a pay site and B) I’m not sure how many people would be interested. PM me if you are and I’ll send you a link. I’m doing the LP because I enjoy writing fanfiction and love the games.
Now here’s my problem. I am casting popular actors as character headcanons throughout the LP. Gale is Dakota Fanning, Amos is Cary Elwes, General Vale is Ed Harris, etc. I then use an appropriate picture of the actor or something close to their character I find online as that character’s portrait for dialogue (mostly canon, some original but nothing conflicting with the main plot). I have little artistic talent in creating portraits myself, so I’m a scavenger.
The one character who has me stumped? The dark brooding Soulburner Mage Jace/Jess. I’m not usually attracted to that type of person, and it’s very important to me that I get their character right by channeling the proper inspiration / pic for the fans who are interested in them. I know there are plenty of people here who adore the character. If you can help me, please reply to this topic or PM.
There is plenty of time to help me if you can, we’ve only just met Harmon (Patrick Stewart) and are proceeding slowly but surely so Jace/Jess’s first appearance is at least a month away. I would also love help with Theo/Thea (best I can do for them is Dwayne Johnson / Grace Jones and they’re a bit old). Same for other characters- your choice may be better than mine, who knows?
Any portraits, fan art, or just actor/actress names to google and get me thinking are fine.
Thanks in advance. - AN
