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!
