A pic of a character from a story that' is/will be in my Wyverns gallery called 'A peculiar Acqusisition.'  His name is Sevan Throckmorton.  The being on his shoulder is a creation of magic and mechanics.  He looks a lot sketchier here than I really imagined him . . .

Colored pencil on black cardstock-like paper

A belated Merry Christmas to all :)

nice work! i can see you put a lot of effort doing the details for the background =). although i think Mr. Throckmorton's a little too tall, and probably have to bend double to go through the doors...unless he's supposed to be that height =P. otherwise, keep up the good work!

:-) Elizabeth Lizzard Morrissey replies: "Thank you! 1 The doors in the background are too short, but I only noticed after I had started coloring, so I couldn't fix it >.<</font>"

Super picture love the atmosphere and the character
his name sounds a little dickensian ,
and quite fitting for what looks like a 19th / early 20th century ish scene
he looks a little troubled bout somethin ..
Ooh wonder what the sign by the door says ,
very intriguing , is it a tavern ?
Love the details in the picture , the icicles and the cobbles
the low doors are fine , they had low doors once pon a time , and if t'was camera shot with mr throckmorton in close up , t'would be pretty much correct
fabulous night illustration
i think he's just traded in ye little shoppe and emerged with the wee magic mechanical dragon

A lot of the proportions seem a bit off, things are leaning over a bit, lines that should be straight are wobbly. Some of these are a little problematic, but others add a neat effect, as if the whole town is leaning over Mr. Throckmorton, and he's leering towards the viewer. I mean, he's not particularly ominous or evil-looking, but the scene has a somewhat surreal, dreamlike feel to it. It's kinda cool. The colors work nicely, and the detail is pretty neat, particularly with all the stones being cobbled and the bricks drawn one-by-one. Good stuff. Feels like a cold winter night, in London or Manchester or some such place (not that I've BEEN either of those places in winter...*sigh*).

2 Elizabeth Lizzard Morrissey replies: "thanks for the input ^_^ Most of the perspective is completely wrong, but by the time I realized it it was too late and I had to work with it the best I could >.< But I guess the overall English winter feeling still gets across, so that's good to hear. "
