Saber

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This picture is for the Starfire War, bits of which are up in my Library. This is Lanar's two-handed saber. I had an aweful time drawing this, getting the curve in at the end without making it look like a bizarre scimitar. This was around the same time that I was discovering the joys of tracing paper, having prevously dismissed it as nearly useless. I decided that I had made the blade too short, and I didn't want to try and draw that curve in the end again, so I decided to trace it and lengthen the blade while I was tracing. Unfortunatly, in between getting the tracing paper and actually tracing the sword, I forgot about making it longer, and didn't notice until I was looking through my sketch book a few months later. *sigh* So, the sword just might be a bit short. pencil, colored in photoshop 7

Chapter four, I suppose, although I think of this as the second half of the story. It gets even more fun after this! :)

Tabatha- pt 3

Tabatha, Part 3 - Flight. In which the Cats flee the kreesha and return to paradise... with a few complications in the way. My mentor said there is a difference between plot and storyline... and although he explained it I never quite grasped it. In anycase, I think it is one is what your characters are trying to accomplish, and the other is what happens to them along the way. My stories are weak on one or the other... I suppose I just can't bring myself to be cruel to my characters... :)
