What else makes writing novels fun? … doing the artwork for said novel!
Here is the cover artwork I did for my latest book. I drew it back before NANO started, just to give myself some inspiration on what I want my characters to look like.
This—as you can see—is the start. Here we have the main character and his trusty horse. (Well, their heads anyway…)
This fellow here, well, he’s a main c. too, but not the title character.
He is the little brother—if you will. Ready and waiting is he, with his bow (not seen) and quiver full of arrows. Hopefully he’ll never run out…
And now, everyone is all drawn out.
And almost all coloured…
From left to right: Bernard, Farerick, Parish, Broderick, Deyorn, and Eryn.
(As for where Bernard’s quiver is, I do not know…Mistakes will happen!)
So anyway, for this picture, I used mostly watercolours, with some pen—Pitt Pens, that is—and a little bit of coloured pencil.
