Eclipse: Try, Try Again by xcgirl08 Eclipse: Try, Try Again by xcgirl08
Jacob, carving the wolf charm that he gives Bella in 'Eclipse.'

You KNOW that he accumulated a pile of like, twenty, that he had chopped a leg off of/made the nose too long/made one of the legs to short/etc. etc, (his hands are huge, after all) and that he just picked up another block of wood and kept trying until he got it right.

He's determined that way.

Ugh, I don't like the shading in this pic....

Any girl that wouldn't accept his little charm is mean! I would be so happy to receive such a lovely charm! ^^

This is beautiful :) I totally agree with how you said he accumulated a pile. Besides, practice makes perfect.

I think this is awesome. Puts an image into the scene they never really discuss much in the book. I agree with you on the shading though. I do not think the bed in the background should be effected by the desk lamp, as well as his right arm should be far brighter than his left, since it is in direct line with the light source. I'm sure you know this already though, either way, I really enjoy this.

this is a really great illustration, one of those hidden scenes that need more limelight

great mood and lighting, good job!
TsukiMizu Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2008
Great picture! It brings tears to my eyes 'cause it's so sweet!
But I feel so bad for Jacob. Even though I like EdwardxBella more than JacobxBella I still wish that Bella didn't have to choose the way she did. It was so sad at the end of Eclipse when Jacob runs away! T_T I hope he finds happiness somewhere. He deserves it!

Jacob is so sweet like that >w<
samoza1215 Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2008

ConstantSideQuest Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2008

I wish he would make me a wolf charm D;

Bella is so lucky that she doesn't even know it D;<
Amykinz Featured By Owner May 3, 2008
I absolutely love the way you draw Jacob, he's exactly what i pictured.
And I completely agree to this xD

xcgirl08 Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2008
Thank you!

Yeah, it is kind of sad....:(
earthdrop Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2008
This is so great! I love it! Its so perfectly Jacob and it makes me love and pity him all at the same time. Its adorable! His face is absolutely perfect. It reminds me of when Bella was thinking of how he must have looked when he was writing the letter from the first chapter.

Bright-moon Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2008
awwwww~ :D thast so cute! I havent read twilight and them, but I heard it from all my friends and sister! Jacob rocks, you got his expression down great!
WithoutName Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2008
Aw!!! Aw!!!!
I'm getting teary-eyed looking at this damn picture. Damn you! :shakefist:

Just as a more professional critique: I would have made the background darker, just so that Jacob sticks out just a little bit more. Aside from that, I think the shading is pretty freaking sweet.

Phenomenal work! (as Always)
xcgirl08 Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2008
Thank you! :hug:

(Yeah, the background could use some darkening up...hmm.)
WithoutName Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2008
You're most welcome <3

He's trying so hard, you just want to give the poor guy a hug throughout Eclipse.

Aw~ I like his funny "i'm-concentrating-really-hard" face. :D
It'd be even worse, because with his particular 'abilities', he wouldn't be as careful as most people would be... so he'd have twice the mess-ups, and a lot of little white almost-healed scars all over his hands, wouldn't he? Good old Jacob. He's so sweet.
julvett Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2008
Aw, this picture is so sweet. I love your shading, too :D Wonderful job! :love:
lolaraysautogirl Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2008

Jewely2951 Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2008
Awwww. So cute. I just finished that book. :D and I love this pic. :D Very cute.
Youkai-Slayer Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2008
Wow, that reminds me of Zuko with the determination to do something until he gets it right and also Sokka with his inability to carve (see Yue's fish) all at once.
Bee9 Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2008
Thats Zuko carving Katara's necklace ;)
JessicaDanielle Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2008
AWW!!! So great! I was picturing something much the same when he gave it to her!
She's just gotta end up with Jacob! . . . hate to say it, but Edward's going to have to die off or something . . .
shishimai Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2008   Writer
I gotta hand it to him though. I woulda just thrown the thing out the window the first time it went wrong... Lol.
