|Abigail Sketch at 3 weeks|
H2 pencil on 100# sketch paper.
The main reason for sharing this with you is to announce that I am in the process of creating a new DeviantArt account!
I have seen several other authors I enjoy draw art for their stories and have always thought how fun that would be. After seeing how people enjoyed even the simple doodles made for Tolkien's stories, I thought, 'Hey, why not!'. I love to draw, even though I don't get to do it as often as I'd like nor am I as good at it as others, but it was my thought that I could draw up my characters, races, mythological beasts, etc as I seem them in my mind on random occasion to share with you all.
I grew up watching Disney movies and discovered my love of anime and manga in my teens, so much of my own drawings and sketches will probably be in a similar style, though various other styles are entirely possible. I love art and can never stick to one exclusive style, anymore than I could stick to one singular genre to write in.
So, for those interested, I will be putting up pieces of book-related art and some other non-book art like the sketch above. Maybe even snippets of my writing works in progress, short stories, alternate or dropped scenes, or spin-offs. It's rather bare bones at the moment, but once I have a few more to share, I will put up a link to it on my blog.
