The second set of fanart, featuring our own dear Ceddie. I'm also including the reference photos I gave Laura (so I've edited the Celyn post to include hers). First, the lovely art by my sister, Laura. You can click on some of them to make them bigger.

The rough sketch. I particularly love the head-on version.

A cute painting she did the other day. D'aw, he's so adorable!

This one is my favorite, I think. I like to think it's based off of the climax, which only Laura has read, but she says it's just a general picture. Anyway, I love the action.

The following are reference images.

Obviously Cedrin doesn't have the crazy hair. I really like this dude's eyes and jaw line.

Same as above. Though I like his expression in this picture.

This is my lovely addition to the Cedrin fanart. He hates me.

I will be featuring some fanart over the next few weeks, for kicks. So far it's all by my sister, Laura. This is her character sketch of Celyn, the faerie.

I love this picture so much. I think it is a perfect representation of Celyn.

This is the reference picture. But Celyn doesn't wear red lipstick.

Starting this Sunday (tomorrow) I will be updating once a week with a 3-5 page section from the book in order. These will be friends-only posts, so you have to friend me to see them. I'll friend back if I know you.

Please ignore the old chapter posts... These versions were done a long time ago. The only reason I am keeping them up is because they have some comments on them.


Note About Tags: The tags are to be used to help you navigate through the story, particularly as we get deeper in. Because this will be split into sections of 3-5 pages, there will be several chapters that have many parts. P stands for part. So P1 is Part One.

Note About Sketches: All the sketches are spoilers! If you want spoilers, read the sketches. I believe all of the sketches now have happily been written into the book. So if you are patient, you can wait and read them in context.

I'm transferring old blog entries. I'd really like to continue the blog entries, because they help me to plot out and work through chinks in the story--particularly in Alaith's story. Also, I often end up using good bits in blog entries, so it does end up being worth the time spent writing them. Perhaps I'll just add to this post whenever I want to blog.

Alaith (Red Diadem):

and here I sweep a curtsyCollapse )</div>
will you ever stop daydreaming?Collapse )
angrily I grab the brush, yanking it through my tangled hair. Collapse )
a secret admirerCollapse )</div>

Cedrin (Shades_of_Carmine):

You are like a dandelionCollapse )
He"s a very troubled manCollapse )
do you think those stories are real?Collapse )
An indifferent, important beautyCollapse )

Wrote this after being inspired by this picture from a Beauty and the Beast book. It's first person, for Alaith. I think I like it.

This is author language. In other words, Cedrin and Alaith are not speaking to you right now.

This blog has been forced on me by friends who take over my mind and thoughts and also by my characters, who basically do the same thing. Most of these random entries will be open to anyone, but if it's really important to the plot I probably with make it friends-only because I'm one of those sissies who fear stalkers that will steal my plot.

Anyway. Entries coming soon!

Sorry about the long screen. I'll fix it when I can figure it out.

And yes, Jolene, there is a cat smilie. Alaith actually likes cats. (Go figure)
