It would appear that my character Valdary's son Dunohtar gets up to all kinds of adventures when his mother isn't looking. I don't know who any of these females are, he's too young to be flirting and Valdary will be calling him in to practise his writing before supper. Dunohtar being Dunohtar would rather be building something. I don't think he's going to be a bard like his mother. Drawn at the request of my son who took the background photo, and yes I have permission to use the photo. Image created using the GIMP (Gnu Image Manipulation Program).

I love the description and background story - it really adds a level of understanding to what is happening. 2 Your characters are varied, intriguing, and well-portrayed. I'm especially fond of that gorgeous creature in the foreground, with the beautiful indigo highlights on her skin.

:-) Valerie Joanne Higgins replies: "Thankyou, I wanted her skin to be all the same colour rather than in two halves, and somehow it was the only colour that would work,"

I agree, the mermaid in front is definitely my favourite, she's so beautiful - but the little fairy's cute too!

:-) Valerie Joanne Higgins replies: "Thankyou! I think the little fairy is telling them all what to do!"

I like the transparency of the fairy's wings...and the blue mermaid is very errie. I'd like to see a sea portrait of her luring sailors to their doom! *smiles*

:-) Valerie Joanne Higgins replies: "Thats a good idea and I might well do that, once I get round to finishing the four of five pictures I'm currently trying to do at once. Now if only I didn't have to earn a living!"
