I Don’t Read My Own Poetry

But today my brain wouldn’t leave me alone till I did fan art for my books whose IP is currently not mine. Yeah, it would make a great cover, wouldn’t it?

Anyway, I’m in late-stage showing people my drawings. Who knows? Maybe you’ll put it on the fridge…..

UPDATE: Nat’s face was just WRONG. So I went in and fixed things. Bonus, you can now see that he’s keeping an eye on the madman next to him (and he not wrong. He’s a manicac but he’s the saneish one in that association.)
Because some comments would otherwise be incomprehensible, I’m keeping the original (smaller) underneath.

    1. I’m redoing-re-rendering in the background because one of the faces was completely wrong, and it wouldn’t let me not fix. After this, I’ll leave it alone though. (Yes, I develop weird ticks when stressed.)

  1. Oh, that’s much more Nat-looking!

    (Btw, I didn’t mean the Perfect Tommy thing as a crack. But it’s amazing how much the face/eye expression makes it not-Perfect-Tommy. Perfect Tommy doesn’t deign to notice things.)

    I think that’s one of the fun things about sf/fantasy art — people often have very speaking expressions, whereas a lot of museum-type-art… doesn’t. Or the expressions are very subtle.

    1. Well, I changed with a completely different character (though it’s similar.) The other one I couldn’t get the EYES to show.
      OH, Nat is IMMACULATE. It’s part of his schtick. Because he knows if he loses control things will get ugly. So I got the Perfect Tommy thing.
      Anyway, it bugged me till I changed it.

  2. Through Fire, is it? I hadn’t recognized the scene.

    I don’t want to be body-shaming anybody but somebody (and I don’t mean Nat) might want to lose some weight and spend time on the exercycle. Even in a military tunic and scowling, man-boobs do not inspire submission.

        1. While they appear in “Through Fire”, they aren’t the Main Characters of “Through Fire”.

          Perhaps, you should reread Sarah’s books. 😉

  3. You’re right, Nat looks half asleep in the bottom picture. Not what you’d expect from somebody preparing for a shootout.
