Hester and Tom

Here's another bit of fan-art, a tribute to one of my favourite fictional couples: Hester Shaw and Tom Natsworthy from Philip Reeve's 'Mortal Engines' series. I simply love how multifaceted and unconventional both these characters are, subverting and playing with a lot of the tropes of action/sci-fi literature, and at the same time being identifiable and likable. The quadrilogy (or tetralogy) as a whole is fantastic, but for me, these two are the best thing about it.
