City of Fallen Angels by tabeck City of Fallen Angels by tabeck
Who will be tempted by darkness?

I've always wondered why Simon had a bow & arrows strapped to his back on the cover of CoFA, coz he's only used them once in City of Bones, when he shot Abbadon with Alec's arrow after Alec passed out. Lol. Anyway, I made him with glasses in this coz I feel like it.

Unedited (& Simon without glasses) on Tumblr

I know that Cassie posted that it was Simon on the cover of CoFA, but I maintain for the world in my own head that it's really ALEC on the cover. He actually DESERVED the cover spot. I mean, Simon's great too ... but ... I love Alec.

I like him more with glasses. In my mind he looks hotter with them. Love the cover art!

Thank youu! <3 :D but, eh? It is Simon. And we all thought it's Alec because of the bow & arrows. Cassandra Clare even reblogged this on her Tumblr & put the caption Clary & Simon. Sebastian was on the cover of City of Glass & I have a feeling he will also be on the cover of the upcoming City of Heavenly Fire with Clary.

OHHHHH I love this!:heart:

There is not enough good art with Simon in it, and he's my favorite character so this made my day.:D They both look fabulous, especially Simon, and I love that you drew him with his glasses because yeah, even though he quits wearing them I always picture him wearing them anyway.:giggle:

Your style here is great and I really can't say how much I love this picture.:love:

Thank you sooo much! Hug OMG MOAR POEMS! Idk, i just feel that glasses is part of Simon's characteristics, even though he doesn't need them after he became a vampire. some people always mentions that he doesn't wear them anymore but he actually still sometimes wears them in the first four books before he get kicked out of his house by his mum, so I don't see any problem if people want to make vampire!Simon fan art with glasses hehee~

:hug:You're welcome! I know, I do too- glasses are not just what he has, they're who he is.:XD:Plus we spend the whole first book imagining him wearing them, and for those of us who adore his character, it's too hard to suddenly in book two imagine him NOT the way we'd spent so long picturing him. It'd be like if Jace dyed his hair blue. (Okay maybe not that extreme but y'know...:XD:) So yeah, Simon in glasses forever!!:w00t:

Oh, okay, I never even picked up on that; him wearing glasses sometimes. So have you read all the books? I'm almost done with number three...I heard the fourth one mostly follows Simon- is that so?:iconbiggrinplz:

I always assumed it was Alec on the cover... But somehow Simon makes sense, too. I like this.

Thanks! yeah it's Simon coz the dude on the cover is Max Reed, who played Simon in CoFA book trailer & Cassandra Clare has also said it's Simon.

I like Simon with glasses better than without; for some reason, I haven't been able to imagine Simon without his glasses so...hmm.

Haha I know right? He's like... the 'megane' of TMI lol. Even though when he became a vampire & didn't really need to wear them anymore, I just like him better with glasses coz to me it's part of his personality.
