Gerard Holvar

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This is Gerard Holvar, a character from _Walk Upon High_ (the rough draft of which is finished) who ended up spawning a prequel (of which one chapter is up on my site). Species-wise, he is a Griffin shelt, called a Grishnard. For more on shelts and Grishnards, visit my site. Gerard spends a good portion of both books being sort of an honorable villian. There are a million things wrong with this picture. For instance, it always bugs me that his sword hilt guard is absurdly too small for his hand. Also, I've changed the appearance of shelt ears since I drew this, and they should be tufted. Still, I like the picture because the basic face and expression is so typically Gerard. It's rare that I can transpose a personality from my prose onto drawing paper. An impersonal member of a species I can manage, but an individual personality is quite a bit more difficult for me to draw. I like this picture b/c it actually looks a little like him (!)
