haha! They look like they're about to have a gentleman's duel.

Shout out to everyone and your wonderful feedback, faves and watches during my sluggery. I've been married to school and chained to the art table and the Evil Seattle-based coffee co. known as Starbucks.

You have all been too kind to me though! I really appreciate everything! Truly.

:heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:

Penn's Woods is comming along well. It's looking like sometime in September that the first issue will be done for your viewing. Thank you for your support! :D :D :D

This is one of the splashes or promo arts, if you will, that will be included in the first issue. I really worked on my painty skills with this and hope I'm a far-cry better than my best '05 piece [link] wich I colored soley with a mouse! The little borders I got were public domain stuff. :)
Dover publishing has a bunch of this sort of thing.

In 1816 America, Tom Harrison, (on the left) the 49-year-old reclussive werewolf teams up with the 26-year-old lively, optimistic and abnormally brave minister, Roderick Parris, to disscover all the strange and paranormal mysteries that surround their small town of Constance, PA. (fictional town ;) )

Although they are very different, they are very close and neigh inseperable. They do have one thing in common- Emily Harrison :heart: [link]

Tom is usually never seen without his clay pipe and Roderick is always gnawing on some kind of grass or wheat.

Penn's Woods Characters belong to me. :)

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-08-30
The suggester says; "This piece is amazing. It proves that you don't need much to tell a story. From the soft shading, to the border detail, it's a one of a kind deviation that really shows a sense of character. You instantly fall in love and want to know more about the two men and their story."

I love the dramatic feel of this picture!  It looks very Gothic and moody, which I gather is the perfect feel for your supernatural story. ;)  I love the soft shading and thin, colored lineart too--they really add to make these look like 19th century portraits.  I'm enjoying getting to learn more about your lovely characters! :D

Thank you!!!! I did this so long ago but I remember having a blast with it (and having MAJOR learning curves and troubleshooting LOL) I'm so happy you like it and the guys! These are the two main characters and they are polar opposites. Somehow, they manage to git 'er dun and kick Evil's butt! Roderick is sweet and as huggable as a Pomeranian puppy. Tom is as huggable as a cactus.... lol :D (Big Grin) 

I hope you enjoy more to come! Thank you for taking a look!!! :happybounce: :happybounce: :happybounce:

You're welcome!  Well, you always learn something new when playing around in photoshop (I know that from personal experience :XD:)!

Haha!  They look great--I can really tell their contrasting personalities, especially how Tom looks more weathered and no-nonsense compared to Roderick. ;)

I'm eager to find out more about your wonderful characters! :D

The only things I have to say are:

Top hats and 19 century garb immediately make anything epic

and Tom needs to get a brown velvet tophat, `cause that just clashes with his otherwise brilliant ensemble...

I really like everything at this picture. lol. The two things that stand out to me the most are that you paid attention to the "framing" and that I can get a feeling about both men's personalities even though I know nothing about them.

Love the contrast, yet obvious connection between the two. By giving them the symbolic parallel blues, you make them allies, even though they look like enemies here. :heart: their solemn expressions are fantastic, and while Roderick is natural with himself (hence, grain!), Tom seems to quietly be trying to almost overplay his (lost) humanity by smoking. I love your concepts and work.
