My New Heroine Sketch

Vree sketch

Yesterday I wrote about creating characters, putting them on the story stage, and watching them act. In that post, I included an old gouache and ink sketch of my current main character, Vree Erickson. Today, I refined that old sketch to new paper with a pair of HB and 2B pencils. While I drew, I studied Vree’s facial features. There’s dauntlessness on that face, which makes me know that despite the odds against her, she was the right choice to battle Margga in my Night of the Hellhounds e-novel (available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble).

    1. Thank you Rita. My heroine has been almost taking on a life of her own beyond the art and written word. 🙂

      As you likely noticed, my blog is a mix of art and writing … and an occasional observation about life, so you never know what to expect from me. I have followers who like my art better than my writing, and vice versa. But I love doing both.

      I’ve been enjoying your landscape paintings. Excellent work – love the colors.

  1. Good Afternoon Steven. Nice piece. I am writing to thank you for following my blog. As you indicated somehow we became disconnected, but I am glad you noticed this and reconnected. I appreciate the follow and will continue to visit and read your intriguing stories. Be well, Ayanna

    1. Thank you, Ayanna. Somehow, I was disconnected from several blogs I used to follow. Since I did not unfollow these blogs, I assume it was a glitch on WordPress’s end. I reconnected and am glad; it’s nice to be reading these wonderful blogs again.

    1. Thank you. She did well against Margga the witch spirit (or spirit witch, not sure which comes first), though luck played heavily in her favor. Now she’s ambling, searching for an identity without a father, and wanting evil to not be real.
