Under His Eye by Earlinwe Under His Eye by Earlinwe
(fan art of The Handmaid's Tale -- the TV series: I haven't read the book yet)

"By then, did you ever imagine a society like this?
-- A society that has reduced its carbon emissons by 78% in three years...
-- A society in which women can no longer read your book... Or anything else."

___________________

I just watched The Handmaid's Tale, it is impressive... The daily, cold horror of Offred's life is very well described, with a simplicity that makes it even more disturbing. After a few episodes, her world doesn't seem so strange anymore... because in a twisted way, that evolution of the american society makes sense.

I recommend that show to any adult (with a warning: rape and psychological violence are major aspects of the story).

This show blew my mind. Margaret Atwood is a genius!!!

I feel like you have captured the unease well in this piece. Not to mention Offred's quiet strength!! Congrats and well done. :love:

Yes, it was amazing! And a nice change from all these fast-paced, action-centered series... with a great message, too. I look forward to season 2!

And thank you very much for your compliments :)

Wow this is beautiful!!! I definitely recommend the book, I think if you like the show this much, you'll definitely like the book, too!  I love your colors and the shadows in this.  You really captured the darkness of that world.

Ah oui la "Servante écarlate" ! Superbe peinture comme d'hab :)
J'ai lu le bouquin mais pas vu la série, c'est sur quelle chaîne ?
Reply
:iconearlinwe:
Earlinwe Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
C'est sur Hulu, du coup je ne sais pas trop si ça a été diffusé sur une chaîne française...
Le bouquin est bien ? Je n'en avais jamais entendu parler avant de regarder la série, mais j'aurais bien envie de le lire :)
