“Eclipse” Fan-Made Art Exposed
By Tracy Rosenfield
HollywoodNews.com: At or before the announcement of each new “Twilight” movie, burgeoning artists everywhere develop beautiful pieces of artwork related to the film. Sure, there are photos and images that are manipulated (“manips”) to show, in most cases, an artist’s wishful thinking, but there are several other pieces in the form of video, drawing, Photoshop and more that truly represent the artist’s interpretation of the film.
These artists are such passionate fans of the films that they take to their computer or easel to create some of the most beautiful, unofficial pieces of artwork for others to enjoy.
Below are some of the more popular examples of fan made “Eclipse” art for your enjoyment:
