Another Sketch

sketch 22

You’re reading Victor Poole, and in my current novel, it is almost Aaron’s turn for a hunting lesson out in the jungle.

Here’s another experimental sketch. This is the scene I just finished editing in my dragon book, which is slowly nearing completion.

I’m working out how I want to use layers with my current drawing program so I don’t end up coloring sky around gaps in the figures, which is, of course, silly.

You’re reading Victor Poole, and I need to find a new gym. Also, in my current novel, the hunter and his dad are digging through bird poop for precious stones.

A Chunk of Cover

This is a clip from a cover I’m designing right now. There’s Unxolo, who is missing her left arm, and the guy is Vince, who cut off her arm previously and is now very sorry for it. Ah, drama.

Rose the cat had to wear a collar and leash briefly the other day for reasons of safety during transport, and ever since she’s been pretending not to exist in the hope, I believe, that I won’t come and put the collar back on.

You’re reading Victor Poole, and in my current novel, the adventurous horticulturist is getting advice about his long term goals.

Today is Monday

This sketch is just for practice.

Rose the gray cat now has a little felt owl stuffed with catnip, and she is possessive and vicious with it. She tucks the owl in between all four of her paws and sits on it while hunching her shoulders and glaring at people, which is cute.

You’re reading Victor Poole, and in my current novel, Scarsdale is learning about the birds.

Centaur Sketch

sketch 19

This is a drawing of Ris from my centaur book, which is on pause while I work out issues with the ages of the characters. Combining equine and homo sapiens’ development is a wee bit complicated, since humans marry in their late teens/early twenties and horses are good to go when they’re about four years old.

You’re reading Victor Poole, and I’m doing revisions on my current draft.

Sance the Dragon

sketch 18

This is a drawing of Sance again, the dragon who used to be a horse. I’m experimenting with color. The castle in the background is the new capitol of Caldhart, after the floods submerged the old city. Our little group of adventurers is having a brief conference on Sance’s back while they go to investigate what’s going on with young king Geoffrey, who has been acting like an ass.

You’re reading Victor Poole, and in my current novel, the hunter’s bonus dad is learning proper war band behavior.

A New Human

sketch 17

This is a sketch of the second marriage proposal between king John and queen Claire (she’s a widow and he isn’t exactly free to marry). They were talking about forming an alliance when John got overexcited and declared war on Claire’s kingdom, and the two of them make peace in a rowboat while their various advisors have panic attacks and look on from the distant shore. This is from my fantasy book that’s nearing completion.

You’re reading Victor Poole, and in my current novel, the hunting party is going after birds on the planet with all the birds on it.
