Bookshelf Pics with Wash

Not a huge change, but an improvement I think.

This blog was pretty quiet in August.  You may be wondering what else I have been up to.  Well, I recently wrapped up a round of revisions on a novel work in progress.  It is with a critiquer at the moment.  I have a new short story off on submission to a magazine and have just gotten another ready to submit as well.

In the drawing department, I've been sketching characters in preparation for my next promotional mailing. I want to get a batch of postcards in the mail by the end of the month, but I'm struggling with getting the characters to a level of dynamism that satisfies.  My people aren't quite interesting enough for the market I'd like to get into.  If you, dear blog reader, have used any resources - books, websites, blogs - that have helped you get your characters to the next level, please, please, please leave the names of them in the comments. Thank you!

  1. Well it seems like you are a busy bee, how wonderful!! The wash worked really well - i am not sure how you apply it? - but the result is amazing.
    I don’t have any pointers unfortunately but i do love your work so very much, and can’t wait to see it out there.
