Artwork for "Offspring" -new artist!

I met this awesome Christian artist while on tour. His name is Dion Williams and he has agreed to do color illustrations for my upcoming books through AMG Publishers! I want to maintain continuity between all the novels. Let me know what you think about this image... I love it and I'm looking forward to seeing it in color.

This image delivers a beautiful feel to it. Doesn't it? (-:

Yeah I like it! The only thing is that I thought the character was younger when this scene took place. And...it's almost too beautiful. I was panicking and freaking out reading that part. LOL Just my thoughts on that.

Neat pic though.

Glad you like it, Elizabeth!

Hi Nathan, this scene took place when Oganna was 17...and she is adorned in the silver dress that the sword gives her: beautiful is exactly the effect I want here!

Ah. Well then I'm glad you got what you wanted :) lol

It looks great. The only thing is the angle at which the foot from the leg she is kneeling on looks wrong. Also the outline around her entire body is too pronounced, especially on her arms, it makes it look more like a cartoon effect.
I love the mood of the scene, great lighting and surface reflextion!

Glad you like it, Brian! The outline appearance is something you need to overlook; this is only a stage of the process. When it is completed in color I'm sure the lines will be blended in with the background. Dion is starting the color this week! (-:

Can't wait to see how it turns out!

WELCOME TO THE WRITING SITE OF SCOTT APPLETON

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
