The Host - Dogpile by picklelova The Host - Dogpile by picklelova
"Those remaining slouched down where we were as the room became avaliable. Gradually, we melted in place until we were horizontal. My head ended up pillowed on Jared's stomach; his hand stroked my hair now and then. Jamie's face was against my chest, and his arms were around my neck. One of my arms was wrapped around his shoulders. Ian's head was cushioned on my stomach, and he held my other hand to his face"
-p. 472, The Host by Stephanie Meyer


Favorite scene in the book, hands down, and a blast to draw. I may color it in GIMP.

I love love love love love this scene, and you did an AMAZING job drawing this. The only thing I think could've been tweaked is that Ian looks to be Jamie's age, Jared and Mel looks twice his size. Other then that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS!

Oh yes, and I love this picture and the scene! When I read it I was thinking, "Damn, I wish someone would draw this!!" And you did, very well. Yay!! Except, next time could you please add a pile of dog shit on Jared's head? Thankyou, my pretty :)

I despise Jared. What an insensitive fool!!!
I love Ian. Aargh, Stephanie Meyer, why can't you make a male main character who isn't hot??
Hehehe... kidding... it's very... enjoyable to read about them if they're gorgeous. Ian is THE SHIZ!!! Hehehe. I want one!

Yes, he is a jerk. I think if they all weren't high on happiness Ian would kill Jared after he slapped Wanda for touching him.

Ian is definitely the best thing ever in that book. He is totally, like, up there with Edward Cullen.

I totally cried when he went to pieces towards the end. And I was like, "YESS" when he punched Jared. XD
