See “Maggie: First Encounter”, for more info. This picture shows the moment that Maggie spots the fallen rider for the horse she has met at the stream. At this point she begins to realize that she is very far from home with no idea how to handle the situation. The warrior is obviously wounded beyond her ability to help and she must decide what to do. However, being stranded in a land full of strangeness it doesn’t take her long to realize that her choice is rather simple. Find assistance for the wounded man and hopefully, her own problem in the process. The only dilemma now is how does she get a 200lb plus, half-conscious, fully armored warrior onto a large, nervous warhorse?
*I hope to continue this picture storyline and already have a couple of promising sketches developing rather nicely. We shall see…
4/11/04-Update. I took some great suggestions and made corrections to Maggie's face and the horse's far eye. I think it looks much better and ready to color. Thanks Glo & Inger! What do you think?
Update: I did an art trade with the wonderful and talented Gloria Bowden and for her half of the trade she did an awesome pic of Maggie. Please have a look!
