Just caught some pix of the royal wedding. Anyone think that Kate's wedding dress looked a little like Bella's?

Just checked the Guide. Not really similar, just vaguely reminiscent :)

I loved all of the drawings.

While I also wanted more drawings of the Volturi and the wolves, I do wonder if size/space was the issue. I mean, that's one huge block of color glossy paper right there. :p

I would have loved to see the Denali clan in the guide. I don't own it, but have looked at all the illustrations and if I remember correctly, they're not in there. I always have Rachelle LeFevre in my head as Tanya.

I was trying to picture Rachelle as Tanya, and couldn't make it fit ... until I tried picturing her hitting on Edward! :rotfl: Now the picture fits! Little too red, but that's just a quick salon trip.

I really liked the pics of Bella as a human and as a vampire. I thought it was really great to see that difference. And Bella as a human looked like I thought she would. I do wish the images in the graphic version of Twilight were more like that, though. I thought the images of Bella in that looked more like Bella as a vampire than Bella as a human.

I didn't like Rosale or Alice at all. I didn't think they looked pretty. In fact, they looked mean and spiteful, especially Rosalie.

Totally agree! Nice to find someone who agreed with me on this one. While the pic of her as a vampire is not quite as I would think she would be, I think it is as close as you could get on paper, and the two pics illustrate the difference well.

I thought they looked vampire-y and scary. Although Rosalie did look quite mean, I think that's the vibe she gives off a lot of the time.

I always imagined her looking more aloof than mean.

I could picture that. Also, I picture her a bit more hourglassy, like the swimsuit model Bella describes her as.

I loved Young Kim's illustrations, and they were awesome to see. I particularly enjoyed the picture of Renesmee holding her MP3 player. ^^ The only character I didn't like of hers was Bella... I just don't like the way she draws Bella, she looks too much like Avril Lavigne for my liking. XD

However, I do wish that there were more illustrations. I was hoping to see the Volturi and Quileutes. : (
