did any of you hear about that Stephen King interview?
the one where they asked him what he thought
about JK Rowling and Steph Meyer being the most
popular authors right now... and his reply?

OMG, i died when he said something along the lines of,

well, the difference between those two is Rowling can
actually write...

LMAO. i love Stephen King. :heart:

I think, Jasper and Alice are the best thing about the twilight series. I don't like Bella so much, and Edward is kinda creepy- in my opinion.

I SAW THAT QUOTE! It was awesome! And then (im not sure if it was that interview or another) he said Harry Potter is about finding inner strenght, Twilight is about a girl can't live without a man :P Yeah she's a fail :)

Where can you find that interview?
A-Little-Demonic Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah Stephen King! That is the greatest! I love Twilight and all, but I got so lost in the concept of the plot that I didn't notice how HORRIBLE Stephenie Meyer's writing is until New Moon! Ugh, how ignorant I was...
Allyrah Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
I love that quote, he's so right, Meyer isn't nearly as good as Rowling! I do like Jasper and Alice though, and Emmett. The books are okay, but they're not that good. This is great though, I love how you drew Alice!
bookworm24 Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2011
ik I pretty much died! Loooove him! <3 haha :D It's a great picture! I had the same deal, I liked Twilight, (especially Alice!! :) ) but then I realized that she had no writing skills... its kinda sad
spoiledporidge Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2010
HAHH! So true. (Though I do still read Meyer but she's just not anywhere near as good as Rowling) I love your Alice by the way.

Stephen King is one of my fa vorite authors now ;)

King is just being mean
Rowling is my idol, but Steph is amazing too, just because the scene made out of the twilight saga is ridiculous and the movie isn't so good [yet i am pathetic enough to love it] doesn't mean that Stepth's writing isn't good
mossmonster08 Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2009
P.S. I love your work! Keep it up! And I hope despite your opinions that you come out with more Twilight related stuff.
mossmonster08 Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2009
I really hated that comment Stephen King made. One of my friends said it best (and mind you he's a guy who highly regards the written word)... "even I'll admit that was harsh because Stephen King can pretty much piss on paper and it's a bestseller." I'll even admit the writings not the greatest but at least the characters have some depth and aren't hollow shells. I'm a definitive reader of the classics and Twilight is something light and airy I can enjoy. And Stephenie Meyer is such a sweetheart and is entirely modest about her fame and doesn't even think she's that great of a writer. So don't hate!
RedhairGreeneyefairy Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2009
The only reason I continued to read the books after Twilight was for Alice and Jasper, Carlisle, Esme, Emmett, Rosalie, and the wolves...basically all of the "secondary characters", I kind of hate it when an author has these amazing characters that aren't necessairily the main ones and then the main charaters that you are reading about the whole time are sort of boring and cliche. Of course that's all just my opinion. Sorry to rant but my friends never get it, because they're not writers like I am or even read like I do and don't understand the passion I have for it (also they would probably jump down my throat if I said how much Edward Cullen bothers me), so I figured I could get all of my feelings out to you lovely people here on Deviantart! :heart: Completely beautiful sketch, I think I have faved all of your Jalice stuff as well as most of your other work. You are so talented! :)

p.s.-if any of you want a good book to read that is extremely well written I suggest The Basic Eight by Daniel Handler (you might know him as Lemony Snicket--this book is not a children's, it's an adult book...nothing too bad. Promise.), it's not the normal fantasy most of us probably read, but it is def. in my top three books of all time and that's a hard list to get into. It is a very witty, articulate, entertaining book.

Okay so I just basically wrote a book myself, SORRY! :blush:
burdge Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2009  Student Traditional Artist
haha, that's fine!
i LOVE getting good feedback,
and i can see your position. :nod:
thanks for the suggestion, too;
i'll look out for that book.

thank you!!

Lol! He said it cause it's TOTALLY true!!!!! Seriously! I don't get why people think she's a good writer....
And Rob Pattinson has a lot of great opinions about Stephanie Meyer. It's fantastic.

do you mind if i colour this?
Its a really nice drawing and im so tempted to colour it in photoshop. lulz.

-sigh- Jasper and Alice. Greatest Twilight couple EVAR.

Now..if Alice wasn't around, then.. JASPER=MINE. -grabby hands- D: Blonde, Southern men. ♥

if you don't like twilight why do read it? and whay do you draw the charcters of the books??
silentbellsring Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2009  Student Traditional Artist
Haha, Stephen King makes me laugh. I love how he just doesn't even give a damn.
XxLonesomeDovexX Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2009
I thought Steph was an amazing writer until ppl started pointing it out that she wasn't, but I still love her books. And I'd never say she was bad, just that sometimes she could do better. But she already is doing better in my opinion. :heart:
fatchy131 Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2009
as a simple teenage reader. i dont really think many of us care for who can right best. its mostly about story line.and ir mr.king beleves that jk rowling is a better writter then he just gave stephenie meyer a compliment. bcuz if she can't rite but STILL has a best selling series then that makes her an even GREATER least in my opinion
caralily Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2009
Yeah, I heard about that! :lmao: Stephen King speaks the truth! I love Twilight but only for the story, not the writing. Harry Potter, however, has turned into my obsession.
I love the Alice and Jasper fanart. Alice is my fave character in the series.
BTW, has anyone noticed that the Bella/Edward pairing is a lot like Lupin/Tonks? Think about it. Lupin and Edward are similar because they are both cursed. They think that they could kill the person they love at any second and try to push them away. They're also both rare ones of their kind because they don't want to kill or change humans. Bella and Tonks are also similar because they are clumsy, much younger than the person they're in love with, and fall into depression when left. Both pairings get married and have a kid.

Stephen King just sprinted up the mountain of awesomeness SO FAST.


I love JasperxAlice though :love:
SouthamptonRose Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2009
Haha now I need to go punch Stephen King in the one insults Ms. Meyer!!! *charges*
keroseneflame Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2009  Student General Artist
I must say, its another masterpiece!!! My favoritest couple from Twilight!!! You are a genius! As usual!!! ....and on the Stephen King interview, I always enjoy peoples opinions but I still disagree. Steph and JKR don't write anything the same or even the same genre (? Steph is Vampire Romance and JKR is Wizardry Action with a hint of romance ?) thus they shouldn't be compared. But their books are great and so is your art!!! lolz. Good picture!!! Again!
burdge Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2009  Student Traditional Artist
thank you so much for the feedback! :lol:
but dood, they both write fantasy. lol.
keroseneflame Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2009  Student General Artist
Well, yeah they both write fantasy, maybe genre wasn't the right word. Like bio - one large group of fantasy but smaller sections so they write different species or phylums...
Your welcome! You are one amazing artist!
burdge Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2009  Student Traditional Artist
ah, good point, i guess. :nod:

In my Spanish class my nickname is Alice :)
Iyeshana Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2009
your art of alice is exactly how I drew alice in a pic a long time ago! :D lovely! we picture her the same way, I suppose..

Poor Stephenie, though. I mean, she does need to work on her writing(as much as I like it), but I do think it was a bit rude for Stephen King to say that(even though he's awesome!). He's should have more respect for another writer-especially one who's just starting to write when he has a lot more experience.
lemonofthetent Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Aw, massive props to Stephen. I adore him. I mean, i am still a massive Twilight fan but that's just because of the characters and the romance... *drools*
SM is definately not the greatest author out there, but I dont think JKR is, either. Some of her writing is really good and at other times it's abit lacking. :(
TheCalmOfChaos Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2009  Student Traditional Artist
I read that interview too! I burst out in laughter. Stephan King is great! XD
NoIdeaWhyISmile Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2009

Neither are very good writers. XD

They're kinda substandard, in my opinion. Of course, my favorite book happens to be the books of Pellinor series, and Alison Croggon...does not make the reading easy. :)
sadieB798 Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2009  Student General Artist
it's funny you mention that, because i was so surprised by that! :wow:
destinywhale Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2009
i agree with parts of that but in certain books of theirs neither of them can write but in others they can draw dreams with words :) love the picture.

Stephen King for president, man! XD This is cute, by the way. As much as I dont enjoy Twilight, I do think this is a cute drawing and a cute couple. :) Great work.

Well, he was right, but nevertheless I like Stephs' charactres a lot, especially Jazz and Alice. And I fell in love with Alice' nose :lmao: Gorgeous!!
