"I ain't cryin'..."

A special thanks to @magraphx for the Bethyl request with a reunion theme. She wanted my version of what Beth and Daryl's reunion will be like in Season 5 of the Walking Dead---and here it is! 

I saw the trailer for Season Five, and Beth was wearing scrubs and had a cast on her hand, so there will be some injuries sustained during her ventures away from the protection of her group. But Beth's a tough cookie, so she'll work out a way to escape from her predicament. 

I'm hoping Beth will have picked up enough grit from Daryl to tough it out at the Hospital where she appeared to be held hostage. I imagine at the climax of her grand escape, she would've done most of the work of fighting off Walkers and Daryl only shows up at the last minute to lend a hand.

Happy Reunion!


Daryl: "I ain't cryin'...Just got some dirt in my eyes, okay?"

Beth: "Whatever you say, Mr. Dixon."

Bethyl request ~ WIP

This Bethyl request was given by twitter fan @TWDBethylFB, who wanted a wedding theme. I asked for specifics and was given the following:

Beth: a white sundress and cowboy boots.

Daryl: his winged biker jacket (of course) and a bow tie.

So far, so good.

Final color version coming soon!

Another set of quick character concepts of my novel's MC, Elena.

Here is Elena looking very cross with someone right now.
Still working on some hair details. She has very curly hair, and it's always giving her a hard time.

Sketchbook Corner # 20

I have a passion for reading that could rival that of my love of drawing. That being said, it comes as no surprise that I developed an interest in writing my own stories. As an illustrator, words and pictures kind of go hand in hand. 

 I thought: "Wouldn't it be neat to write a story set in the Old West, around the time colonists began to journey through the Great Plains?"
Then, two months ago, the research began.
And a lot of writing.

Below, are two of the three main characters in my story. I decided to do some "fan art" of my own novel and get these characters out of my head and onto paper. 

Just a quick sketch and some color thrown in with Corel Painter.

Look forward to more!
