|Maren mourns Aravel – The Errant King|
There’s just something about the soft whisper of a pencil on paper…It’s so relaxing. It helps me think. I guess that’s why I’ve always loved to sketch.
Not so much places or people I’ve seen, but those I’ve pictured in my head while reading a good book. Pictures translated from words.
I rarely draw my own characters. I’m not entirely sure why. After all, I imagined them, so I should be able to capture them in pencil as well as in ink. Still, for some reason, I always put it off and crack open another book instead, and grant form to another author’s creations.
Perhaps next time, I’ll have some pictures of my own characters to show you, but for now, here are some of my latest drawings of characters from Wayne Thomas Batson’s Dark Sea Annals series.
Our scanner is unfortunately broken, so I beg you pardon the photo quality as I was forced to take pictures of the drawings.
|Lady Abbagael and baby Telwyn from Sword in the Stars.|
|The Red Queen|
|Ariana of the Wetlands|
|Lochlan, High King of Myriad|
|Cythraul and Skoll|
|The Errant King flees the castle.|
Anyone else like to sketch characters? Do you prefer to sketch your own characters or characters from books you’ve read?
