Hi Dominique, please don't remove elriel forever. I have followed you for a long time and I adore your art, I was very excited that one day you would draw them. Unfortunately the fandom is very aggressive now, please do not punish all the elriel stans, some of us respect opinions and we love to see your drawing
I want to post this to clarify the situation a bit more:
Answer: I'm sorry if you thought I meant all of elriel fans, maybe I didn't put it quite right. Some of them are my friends so obviously this hatred will never grow in me.
So thank you for your support, truly! :)
I want you to know that this isn't a punishment or revenge or some other stupid thing that abusers love to do. It was just a big anti inspiration for me and this piece and that's it. I'm not upset about this situation like the other artists who were attacked. Despite all the shit that's been thrown at me, I still think standing up for Alex was the right thing to do and it's worth it!
Just in case for gwynrel fans: I decided to make this piece for fun and for mental relaxation, because I work very hard and sometimes I really need personal pieces. And not for some of you to make fun of elriel fans, if you think it's a good idea - it's not. feysand and their hatred of people who like or just fine with Tamlin too. Please don't act like those abusers, be above that.
Also, notice my artworks is not a battlefield, it's neutral zone, it’s all for fun, for a polite exchange of opinions, for make someone else's day better.
So I respect all of you who take different sides, love different couples and characters, have different options, but only as long as you behave like grown-up civilized people.

I'm getting a lot of messages from elriel fans right now, and wow guys! I'm glad that I'm seeing so many great people in opposition to those few toxic who accuse me of something. Thank you!
All your support are amazing!
I want to ask again all this fandom and each side, please stay polite, don't attack each other because of this situation, this is definitely not what I want.

Let's thanks elriel fans who made the choice for me about this ship by throwing mud at me behind my back.
Fans of gwynriel, elucien and my artworks, it's the time to open a bottle of wine. :D
I'm gonna say this because Dominique Wesson is one of the kindest and loveliest artists I've ever interacted with and not for anything else
People are suddenly attacking her for being a Tamlin stan when did she ever state that she is? She came to defend a person that got attacked for having Tamlin merch from her. You know she is working on ACOTAR projects and Tamlin happens to be one of the characters right?
Despite who the character is, this is a beautiful art.
Let me point out something:
Everyone knew Dominique was working on a Tamlin fan art on February 9th and the final artwork was published on March 9th. Plenty time for people that do no like Tamlin to cause a stir over it.
Meanwhile, she released another artwork of ACOWAR that featured the three Illyrian brothers and the three Archeron sisters and everyone was fawning over it. But then... what was the first sting?
There has been a trend of attacking artists that release a Gwynriel fan art or even mention that they support that ship. Many artists complained of this behavior coming from the ACOTAR fandom. It seems like someone tries to find anything relating to that artist's work or them as a person and use it against them out of spite.
Suddenly Dom drawing Tamlin is a whole issue after she told people that she's working on a Gwynriel and an Elucien piece? The fan art was there from early February why didn't anyone complain about it back then? Why now? I think that answer is obvious.
I do not like Tamlin. I do not care if he gets a redemption or not. I cannot overlook the fact that he killed Rhys's mother and sister. So whatever happens to him, to hell with it.
But I also understand that fans interpret characters differently. It's not a new concept that there are fans of problematic characters. I don't mind that.
My problem when it comes to these kind of stuff is when someone romanticizies certain aspects or traits of the character or some of their actions that are unjustifiable. Here is where I go "Nope!".
It's fiction. People out there are loving The Darkling or the Joker or even Darth Vader and I don't see this much backlash over it. Because it's fiction, you're not meant to take someone liking a villain so personally. It bothers you? Either have a civil discussion or move on.
ACOTAR lies in a very big gray area. There is nothing that is entirely black or white and we should know this by now.
I do not support bullying of others because there are real people behind the screens. If you disagree with someone, have a civil conversation with them and see why they would think character x deserves some love or redemption.
When the show comes out, are you gonna attack fans of the show too? when they start to like Tamlin? I mean the follow up story will show them Tamlin's true colors but the point here is will they too be subjected to this? Do you think it's fine to bully others over fictional characters?
Please leave Dominique out of this fandom drama and leave people you do not agree with alone and move on.

. Anyway, is there a way that we can buy all of the dust jackets at once? I didn’t see one for a court of wings and ruin....
They will be sold only as a set anyway. And I posted “A Court of Wings and Ruin” last week.

Next! “A Court of Frost and Starlight” 🌟 (swipe to see the full version)
At the very beginning I had a different idea for this piece, but I didn’t have enough space for it. I’ll come back to that concept at some point, most likely with another couple though.
Sooo yeah, Rhys and Feyre and her beast form, I hope you like it. 💙
The other day I announced (kind of) a Gwynriel piece, I just want to mention it here too because I keep getting questions about it. You guys should stop asking me to draw more acotar illustrations, my hard drive is already packed almost to capacity with sketches. 😅
This SET will include five illustrations with gorgeous holographic foiling.

“A Court of Wings and Ruin” 🦇 (Swipe to see the full version)
This one took me a while, probably because of Azriel’s face. I spent five hours on it just to realize: I need to redraw it, so if you think I’m crazy with all these details, yeah, you’re probably right. 😅
This set will include five illustrations with holographic foiling.

Hello! I’ve seen you post a lot more of your artwork to your Instagram. Would you consider posting those pieces to your tumblr as well? Namely your serpent & dove, oath taker, bridge kingdom art. It’s all just so lovely!
Yes, I will, as soon as I have a bit more free time. :) I need to add my signature on them.

Would you consider illustrating Vucien aka Vassa and Lucien together? Would love that!
I’ll think about that. :)

When your acotar dust jackets are completed, will we be able to buy them? If so, is there a specific site you will be selling them on?
Yes, you can buy them. I just posted the first illustration and some sales info.
