Losing power is annoying. Very, very annoying because we have underground utilities in our neighborhood. We can have the slightest little thunder shower and BOOM! No power.
Usually it goes off in the early evening and stays off until around midnight or later. Then our alarm system goes crazy when it comes back one and wakes everyone up.
So…..since I can't do much of anything else, I've been drawing. By flashlight. :D
I'm starting a new series based on some of my favorite fictional heroines. The theme is hard to put into words, but basically the heroines I've chosen all have one thing in common: circumstances/fate cause them to have a much different home than the one they have at the beginning of the book. I really need to figure out how to better state it, but here are a few of the characters I'll be painting:
Tessa from The Infernal Devices series
Claire from the Outlander series
Adelia from The Mistress of the Art of Death series
Elizabeth from Pride and Prejudice
Katherine from The Tenth Gift
Darcy from Something Blue
Mac from the Fever series
Diana from the All Souls Trilogy (A Discovery of Witches)
Bethany from Styx
Katniss from The Hunger Games
I guess if you've read any of these books you'll get the point. My only worry is that I don't want it to look like fan art. I want them to look very nice! Anyway….here is my first study from my art journal. It's Tessa Gray from the Infernal Devices series from Cassadra Clare. It's one of two YA books I have on the list.
